    You mean Gamestop?

    I think Walmart has something like this in the US, so it's not...too surprising.

    "Starting next year, Gamestop will begin to develop their own satellites to utilize their new space program."

    We all know it's coming.

    I seriously hate all these "Pay for ____ MB of data" BS. It's the only reason keeping from getting a smartphone.
    And all the unlimited plans that are available are just way too overpriced IMO.

    At least you're dipping your toes into the pool, Gamestop. I can't say I'm tempted to dive in with you, though.

    Ugh, GameStop taking in Smartphone trades, Selling Tablets, and doing cellphone Service? Why don't they just call themselves RadioShack 2.0?

    Fixed. Until Gamestop starts selling musical instruments, PCs, Netbooks, general PC equipment, PC Software, TVs, and other various electronics maybe then we can start talking.

    Gamestop's overpriced plans with AT&T. Hopefully it fails but knowing the consumer it won't. Ya, most early versions start small then expand so I think the analogy works. They do sell some PC software but just games.

    I gave it a .5 because they both rip their customers off in some way or another, but I suppose a .25 would suffice :lol:
