  • Honestly, for Gamestop to be successful they need to do the following: Warehouse and Inventory Controls for their stock, very efficient processes means you need substantially fewer people to do the same work, and labor + overhead on that labor is outrageously expensive Franchise out ALL (or almost ALL) stores, they don't need the Overhead that comes from managing them at a chain level, it would be better to make straight income without overhead, and then only really accounting for the marketing that ALL franchisees benefit from as basically offsetting that -Online would be based on stock in their warehouses, and on most (if not all) stores integrating their POS to include integration with it, as it is currently, so that I can see Pokemon X is available online or at Stores A, B, C, etc. Focus mostly on expanding their online access, and either acquire the preowned games and consoles by essentially buying them from the franchise owners, or open up the ability for people to ship the product IN to a warehouse or other designated area, and sell them online basically for credit -Gamestop would stay profitable by including a 5-10% markup that they take as their fee across all products that that Store sells The area where most / all other retailers lack is the affordability offered by pre-owned games, as well as the heavy discounts and whatnot that can be applied from those, while still retaining profitability -In the above example of purchasing product directly from the Franchisees, they could automate the process during the POS for an Online User, as to not have overhead on Materials or Storage --I purchase Sekiro from Gamestop, they do not have any in their warehouse(s) currently, so they send out an order to the Franchisees, some of which have posted copies as available for purchase by Corporate (i.e. low volume / traffic stores), which then are bought up, and sent to the Client directly, or to the Warehouse / picked up by a person that is dropping off something for the Store (Marketing Materials, a Shipment, etc.) ---This system should prioritize low volume stores over those larger ones, in an effort to essentially subsidize the losses of those stores (they bought game for $25, sell it to corporate for $30, rather than holding on to it indefinitely). Functionally should not increase costs substantially (over prioritizing stores closest in proximity to warehouse, as it would rely on usage of persons that are going to be in that area at the time anyways), however it would allow more stores to stay open than would be otherwise available Store-Store selling would be permissible through the same system, and allows stores to easily track and trade off stock with one another, without incurring costs by Corporate (i.e. Store X is in a younger area where Pokemon is an extremely hot commodity, whereas Y is more From Software games such as Dark Souls) Not perfect, they got plenty of issues that would be pretty difficult to work through and optimize, but something like this would not be a bad idea. They should have basically NO overhead factored into the stores, and therefore would NEVER close them. As the marketing would also benefit their direct sales (which by this design would be entirely or mostly Online), it shouldn't be counted against the Store Sales, with minor exemptions (such as materials specifically designed for use in stores, i.e. cardboard stands), rather for the most part it, and the warehouse personnel would be counted against the Online aspect. By reducing their scope and eliminating unnecessary aspects, they would then reduce the costs that they need to sell at to remain profitable. This not only makes them more recession proof, but more competitive, as they can maintain relatively consistent launch prices (or even dip below them if necessary) as compared to alternative retailers, however their sales may become even more so, or retain the current discounts while having significantly more profit baked in. There's a lot that could be going wrong, it's hard for me to say what EXACTLY they would need specifically, but these steps would be generally applicable and may resolve the issues. Most likely it is a a mix of these and more specific woes (overspending on Warehouses, Personnel, Investing in the wrong aspects of the business, etc.). I'd say that the Retail part has been the hardest hit in recent years, even without COVID, and this is mostly due to the ease and accessibility brought on by Amazon, which revolutionized the digital marketplace. Unless you have the demand for it, there shouldn't be a Gamestop every 2-3 miles like there are in some areas, while I'm not saying I would prevent a Franchisee from opening one there, I certainly wouldn't do so as a Corporate Direct Store. -Basically you introduce your own regional competition, where you double your fixed costs and labor, but as most likely the consumers are shared in the area (or default would have gone to one should the second not exist), you end up fiscally failing. If that second area is REALLY that much better than the existing, your best bet would probably be to relocate their, rather than simply open another storefront (permanently), now based on the initializing costs of doing so, it might be worth it to test drive a location, and if the revenues at neither locale seem to be negatively affected, then the population density and interest groups are enough to support both locations, so I would keep them open. If you find a marked increase in one, and a decrease in the other, most likely the customers are shifting away from one and to the other, which isn't what you want to do. --You would rather attract NEW customers to a NEW location, than to redirect existing locations from one to the other. As basically you're floating double the costs for that same customer retention, and given the close proximity of these examples, they would still have been a client at either location, but choose the other for a myriad of factors (usually convenience or stock, stock also being affected by the number of customers selling and orders placed...)

  • well maybe if gamestop wasnt assholes and the industry trying to save money on digital only releases then the company would be fine??? but if anything current markets in gaming suck so they should focus on selling retro games as that market is coming back booming because current game dev componies are greedy as shit with micro trans and focused online multi player modes more then single player exp.

  • Personally I love both entries in the Watchdogs series! I think the whole Dedsec crew in the second game was great! And this video broke the news for me on Aiden being in the game! That is awesome! That will make it much harder for me to hold out for Cyberpunk. Ill eventually have them both, just probably looking towards getting Legion down the road for a lower price.
