Gamestop’s Secret Las Vegas Convention
Living in Las Vegas is a beautiful thing, Especially when it comes to learning about to secret retail conventions. This past weekend at the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino, Gamestop inc held a convention for their management. According to my sources (and a little eavesdropping from a security guard) the convention is focusing on completely restructuring the Gamestop brand. The look, design, logos, etc will all be getting a major overhaul. One of the major changes will be their new slogan and mantra: “Power to the Players”, which is already popping up this weekend on numerous website ads. Also in effect is a program tracking certain “random” games’ pre-order sales to see if the standard pre-order deposit should be $10. We will have coupons for this when it comes out listed here, Nothing Earth shattering, but interesting nonetheless. Expect Gamestop to make some announcements in the coming weeks. As long as it benefits the consumer, I’m all for it. Just as a side note, according to my source, Gamestop has no interest in buying out Game Crazy stores, who have been having some recent financial trouble.
