North American video game retailer GameStop has announced that it plans to increase its focus on both smartphones and tablets, rather than video games. GameStop CEO Paul Raines calls the new move “GameStop 3.0.” Raines says the company will close around 2% of its current retail stores. GameStop will be opening Spring Mobile and Simply Mac stores instead. Spring Mobile will cover AT&T-branded phones and Simply Mac covers Apple products. They will open over 200 Spring Mobile stores and 20 Simply Mac stores.
Oh my god are you that stupid? How many times will people have to tell you this. SMARTPHONES ARE NOT THE FUTURE OF GAMING. You are called GAMEstop not Phonestop, although I guess Gamestop means stop the games. Look how going into the mobile market worked out for Capcom? Yeah remember…it blew up in their face, they wasted tons of money and they failed hard.
