Last I knew Gamestop fired a lot of their District Managers & RL's; & their stock is hovering around $3.80! I just don't see GS recovering at this point tbh.

I mean, as a last-ditch effort, I can see this being the most viable way of trying to dig themselves out. Hosting local scenes, especially with the fighting game community (as I know my local scene is home to many thriving Smash players), would definitely garner in some traffic depending on the locations.

I'm not too concerned about the retro games being extortionate. They have a large online stock of retro games already and they're actually reasonably priced; nostalgia also sells super hard, so I can imagine that would be a very popular section amongst "casual" or former gamers.

I wouldn't be surprised if the experiments that work out the best are the ones Gamestop uses going forward, and they proceed to ditch the rest and minimise the number of stores that don't adopt the new plan.

Doubt they'll get better at this point. Even if the plans for those new stores were to work, I think it's going to be too late.

Edit: It got worse already. Gamestop are closing up to 200 stores worldwide as a result of this development by the years end, with more still planned to occur beyond that.
