Screw EB Games

Um no. No, no, no, no. You want me to pay $700 for a $400 Xbox 360 and I don't even get to choose the games!?!? No, just no. This is ridiculous, and there's no way in hell I'm paying that much. I don't care if it's online only or not. Your business practices suck. Time to find a Gamestop in the area.

Hate to break the bad news to you...but it looks like Gamestop is buying EB Games. I wouldn't be surprised to see the same business practices at Gamestop. The only way to change this behavior is to boycott buying your XBOX 360 or anything else from them.



GameStop buying EB Games - News at GameSpot:

Oh, I knew that. I preffered EB. They kept the classic stuff in stock, and their pre-owned sales were far better. The Gamestop/EB merger won't be done for a few months yet, but now it would almost seem like they're being absorbed already. Gamestop still hasn't announced the pre-orders yet.

You could always wait until your local Meijer/Best Buy/Curcut City/Wal-Mart etc. has them in stock. Lord knows you people of all Matt have enough games to play in the mean time.

I still stand by my EB rant, but a big f*ck you to Gamestop:

Who the freakin' hell spends $1200 dollars???

And yeah, I can wait until they get some in stock, but this will be close to Christmas. They won't be available unless you get in line. It's the principal of the thing.

"Online gaming retailer sees EB Games' bundles, raises them $100." Thats just a great lead.
