Give GameStop credit – they know how to adapt. Amidst rumors that next-gen consoles will not support physical copies of used games, GameStop is slowly reconfiguring their current business model into one that reflects the more digital nature of gaming. More specifically, they have expanded their selection of PC games to over 1,500. Gamers will be able to buy redeemable codes for the games at one of their many storefronts or online.
Does GameStop really hope to compete with trusted digital PC gaming suppliers such as Steam? By offering gamers points good for coupons and other redeemable items upon purchase, it seems like they absolutely do. Considering all the revenue they’re going to lose if the next Xbox and PS do not allow for used games, they better hope it works.
