Cloud gaming is shaping up to a big business, and GameStop is jumping on the bandwagon before it gets too crowded. After a year of private beta testing, the retailer has decided to give console support the shaft, instead focusing on the PCs, tablets, and Smart TVs as its preferred hardware.
Gamestop teased and then it started talking more about selling a gaming-focused tablet, and now, without any sort of grand announcement, the tablets are available in some 200 U.S. retails. Anybody seen these yet?
GameStop, both a brick-and-mortar game-seller as well as a company with digital ambitions, is adding one more goal to its near-future plate: its very own game-focused tablet. With the 3DS flagging and your average tablet already plenty capable of running games, one has to wonder: why?
It was just another day at Gamestop in Long Island, NY and employee (of four years) John Mazzocchi was thinking of ways to pass the time. So, he tweeted a couple pictures of himself planking in the empty store. Apparently, this caused quite a stir, because John was fired and ineligible for unemployment. Cautionary tale, folks: don't plank on the job.
From piles of used games to jam-packed midnight software and hardware launches, GameStop is a sizable video game retail juggernaut. So why is it considering building its own gaming tablet?
