GameStop Employee Confession: Corporate Makes Me Do It

400°
318w ago - According to Loot-Ninja, an employee of GameStop apparently told a shopper that "I know it's shady, but corporate makes me push the cheaper knockoffs because they make more money off of them" as he attempted to offer them a Logitech PS3 controller instead of an official one.

To quote: When my buddy asked for a PS3 controller, the clerk said "no problem" and moved toward the controllers section. He first showed us the Logitech version of a PS3 controller to which I responded, "I thought we were friends?"

The clerk laughed and looked at me and then pulled down an official PS3 controller. He then told me that he felt bad even offering the Logitech controller, which he admitted was cheaper in quality and would probably not last as long. I knew that already, but what he said next was interesting.

"I know it's shady, but corporate makes me push the cheaper knockoffs because they make more money off of them." Pretty messed up since if I wasn't with my friend, he may have been lead to buy an inferior controller just to save a few bucks and then regretted it in the long run.

How many parents fall into this trap on a daily basis just so that GameStop can make more cash? Sad that the employees are forced to do this as well. What do you think?
 

Stupidity of the Console War: Did Gamers Lose Their Hearts?

100°
319w ago - While browsing YouTube I found this video. The person I saw on it (Bluty3000) was someone who I use to watch on my old account. So I decided to check his video out Labeled "Console War".

In his video he pretty much sums up how I feel about the console war as well.

He calls anyone who takes the console war so seriously that they act like a console is their child, is annoying and should take a good look at them selves.

Below are the videos, be warned however a portion of the content is mature and some users may be offended by it.






 

Valve: Video Game Pirates Are Just Underserved Customers

200°
319w ago - In an interesting take on video game pirates, Valve's Jason Holtman sees them as 'tons of undiscovered customers'.

Obviously they think pirates can be turned into legitimate consumers and this was linked to an argument that they have been under-served in some way, hence turning to piracy.

To quote: The final sacred cow that Holtman took a stab at was the issue of piracy. "There's a big business feeling that there's piracy," he says. But the truth is: "Pirates are underserved customers."

"When you think about it that way, you think, 'Oh my gosh, I can do some interesting things and make some interesting money off of it.'"

"We take all of our games day-and-date to Russia," Holtman says of Valve. "The reason people pirated things in Russia," he explains, "is because Russians are reading magazines and watching television -- they say 'Man, I want to play that game so bad,' but the publishers respond 'you can play that game in six months...maybe.' "

"We found that our piracy rates dropped off significantly," Holtman says, explaining that Valve makes sure their games are on the shelves in Moscow and St. Petersberg, in Russian, when they release it to North America and Western Europe.
 

GameStop Exec Defends Used Game Sales & Somewhat Succeeds

250°
319w ago - In a recent interview with Gamasutra, GameStop Chief Marketing Officer Mike Hogan tried to defend his company's stance on the used game market by comparing it to the used car market.

He argued that without trade money from used cars, the owners wouldn't be able to afford a new car. Although some people will try to flaw his argument by noting that games aren't that expensive in relation to people's disposable income.

To quote: Starting his argument, he compared the games industry to the car industry saying: "If you couldn't sell your old car - would the industry sell more cars?" He argues that without the trade-in money From The used car, owners wouldn't be able to afford a new car.

He then claimed that 90% of trade-ins take place over 90 days after the release of a game. He said, "We track this fairly closely. We believe we're extending the life-cycles of users."

He continued, "I realize there are other perspectives, but ours is: trades and used fuel growth in the category."
