I don't think the new Pro membership is supposed to impress people used to working the system.   :)

 

IT's supposed to make GS more money.  Make it easier to communicate the value of the membership by making the discount concrete.  $5 is always $5.  Their working theory is this is more attractive to and easier to understand for the average customer.

Yep games essentially got a 25% price increase this summer.  And we didn't see a single headline saying that.

 

And they received even more of a price increase if you consider trade-in values at GS and BB just aren't what they were.  The TIVs have been a lot worse overall since last summer.
