DS Lite discontinued at GameStop

Posted in Nintendo DS by Reuben Drake on April 22nd, 2011

Out with the old, in with the new. An internal GameStop memo has surfaced announcing the discontinuation of Nintendo’s DS Lite. With the 3DS now available, the old DS Lite is being put out to pasture. The memo tells employees to remove displays of Crimson, Black, and Metallic Rose models, once the stock is gone.

It is a five-year-old system. There’s no official word from Nintendo yet, but we imagine that will be coming soon. If you want one, you better grab one while you can.

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2011

Sony’s Next Generation Portable (PSP2) has been called a PS3 for your pocket. It is codenamed the NGP. So how much does it cost? Sony has no answer to that yet, but GameStop has the device up for pre-order and they have a price in mind. The Sony NGP page on their website has an estimated price of $999.99.

They probably just want to make it look like it had a price cut the day it comes out. Sneaky. Sony hasn’t mentioned when they will be announcing the actual price, but with the device is scheduled for an end of year release.

The upcoming 250GB Xbox 360 hard drive is now being offered for sale at GameStop for its $130 price. Oddly this comes ahead of any official announcement from Microsoft. The drive is an upgrade for the new, slim Xbox Arcade, which includes only 4GB of built-in storage.

To refresh your memory, the drive ships preloaded with the Hexic HD game as well as with demos of A Kingdom for Kefflings, Peggle and Pinball FX. It is said to be shipping within 24 hours of you placing the order.

IGN spotted a listing today for a slim PlayStation 3 with 160GB of storage, with a shipping date of today for $299.99. The listing has been removed since then, but it has shown up at Newegg for the same price with a projected arrival date of August 19 .

Interestingly, Sony has a press conference lined up at GamesCom for mid-afternoon ET tomorrow, where this might be announced. It’s getting hard to keep up with all of these capacities.

GameStop launches casual digital game store

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on July 31st, 2009

gamestop-casualVideo games are feeling the pinch of the poor economy as sales for hardware and software slump. The market for casual games is much larger than the market for more hardcore video games and GameStop is making a grab for some of the casual market.

GameStop announced a new casual digital download store for games powered by RealNetworks. GameStop says that customers will be offered money-saving deals, free trials, and a streamlined search along with a checkout capability.

Tony Hawk: Ride game gets ship date

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on May 26th, 2009

tonyhawkride-sbWe have talked about the coming Tony Hawk: Ride video game that includes the skateboard controller. I’m not much for real skateboarding, but I might check out the video game. The controller looks pretty slick, assuming it is easier than say controlling a skateboard on a Wii game using the balance board.

GameStop has announced the ship date for the game if you are looking forward to getting your own copy. The game and the skateboard controller will ship on October 13. The big drawback is the bundle is very expensive.

Silver DualShock 3 controller spotted at GamestopYou’re probably getting mighty sick of that all-black DualShock 3 controller. Colorware is one option, but who wants to lay out that much money just to paint a controller? Luckily for you GameStop has your back. Assuming you like silver.

Today, the website has a listing for a silver version of the wireless SIXAXIS controller. It’s actually been available on the Japanese market forever, but those of us in North America can finally have a crack at it now.

Gamestop Wii supply is finally meeting demand

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on March 19th, 2009

wii-sbThis story has been three years in the making. Video game retailer GameStop finally has enough Nintendo Wii consoles for everyone, and it only took about three years for it to happen. In an interview with Gamasutra, GameStop’s senior VP of merchandising Bob McKenzie says that the company’s supply of Nintendo Wii consoles has finally caught up with demand.

“You know, three years later, we finally have enough inventory on the shelf, and we’ve got a couple of weeks in supply of this. That’s good because we can finally determine and gauge it before we get into the fourth holiday season.”


Amazon’s new video game trade-in program outdoes Gamestop

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2009

Amazon’s new video game trade-in program outdoes GamestopIf you’re like me, you don’t like spending $50 on a game only to beat it in a few hours and have it sit on the shelf forever. That’s why I resell games or trade them in, so you can get more for your money. Sadly Gamestop’s trade in prices often suck. Well, good news.

According to Webware, Amazon will now buy back used games for more money than Gamestop. Amazon launched the service today, and they currently accept over 1500 titles across platforms. Webware compared some of the bigger, recent releases, and it looks like Amazon offers $2-$3 more for games on average. Shipping is even free. Thanks Amazon. Thank you for caring about my wallet.

GameStop announces midnight launch events for Halo Wars

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on February 27th, 2009

GameStop Halo WarsEach time a new Halo game launches sales records are set. In fact, the last time a Halo game launched the title went on to make more money than many of the year’s biggest movies. I still can’t believe that they pulled the plug on the Halo feature film… dumb asses.

GameStop announced that it would be hosting midnight launch events at many of its locations around the country. The festivities will kick off at most locations at 10pm on Monday March 2 and will include Halo 3 tournaments, Warthog races, character dress up contests and trivia challenges.

Nintendo DSi now on Amazon and GameStop for preorder

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on February 19th, 2009

Nintendo DSiThose of you wanting to preorder the Nintendo DSi before the April 5th US date can now do so as Amazon and GameStop are both accepting preorders. We’re talking $169 for the base system from both retailers, but GameStop has no problem upping the price with some bundled accessories.

Try to contain yourself as you decide which of it’s two colors to choose. Why they would limit the colors for it’s release is anybody’s guess, but I don’t like blue and black damnit! The question of the day is this. Will the limited color choice influence whether you will buy one or not?

Limited Edition Pokemon DS Lite at GameStop

Limited Edition Pokemon DS Lite at GameStop
This one is a few years late and about a hundred pokemon short, but look what finally showed up in the U.S. No wonder Pikachu is acting all weird. This first appeared in Japan almost two years ago and this pic was apparently snapped at a gamestop store in the U.S.

Looks like there’s no game bundled with it, but you do get a matching carrying case, 22-minute Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DVD, a Grovyle poster, and a Pokemon t-shirt. So, if you’ve got to catch them all, rush out and find one for $129.99 as soon as you can. That’s about all the info we have on this one.
