FUCKING GAMESTOP
>>
>>323706509
Happening again.
>>
Good. Puerto Rico is a fucking shithole, and the people there are so fucking shitty they don't even deserve FUCKING GAMESTOP.
>>
How many stores has GameStop shut down already? They're really in deep shit.

>>323706509
Considering the import tax, business operation fees, and crime; it's a wonder why any business would operate south of Texas. Latin American cities have put Detroit (Saginaw), Michigan and Chicago, Illinois to shame when it comes to murder rates
>>
>>323708273
people want discs, they just order them online for cheaper

there is literally no reason to use gamestop anymore
>>
>>323707950
Yes. You can rip them in any format, at any bitrate, without being absolutely infested with iTunes DRM.
>>
Puerto Rican here. At best this will only affect normies so I don't give a shit.

There are three local stores (Specialty Gamer, Neo Japan, JuegoPR) ready to replace these idiots right away, because they held exclusive rights to distributors into here, once their gone that contract will go as well.

Sale tax is insane here (almost 11.5%, prob as high as Cali) as well so people opt in for the cheaper options amazon/digital.

>>323707564
It is my friend. But not everyone can move from this shithole and now they're trying to stop us from going to MUHRIKA without a visa soon. Not like murika would like our kind anyway, ricans are the fucking worst, they're almost BR shit tier.

I'd rather keep buying physical copies of games than have to spend more money on external hard drives for digital copies.
>>
>>323710193
Not only that, digital copies can disappear or be changed at any time and you cannot even ask for a refund. We seen this time to time.

People already forgot Marvel vs Capcom
Or the controversy with GTA: San Andreas steam version.

Perfect examples of where you do not own the product when you buy digitally. You're just paying for an expensive rental that expires at any time. I buy my shit digitally for convenience but we can't deny the biggest pros when you buy physical products, one being you actually own it.

Sure, having all your shit stored on CD is safer than keeping it on hard drives that can fail, but guess what? You could put all your installers on CD if you wanted to.
>>
>>323711119
Yes but aside from indie shit, there is little actual good DRM free games and most of them are old anyway, you're better of pirating them instead of giving your sheckles to GOG.
>>
>>323707950
Only retards and corporate shills want the demise of physical copies
>>
>>323711307
I agree with the sentiment about pirating old games rather than giving shekels to GoG because they acquired the rights to sell them, but there's still plenty of good "indie shit" and it's your job as a consumer not to support companies whose practices you don't approve of. Don't like the fact that you're only renting your games and they can get removed through circumstances beyond your control? Don't purchase from vendors where this is the case. It's very simple.
>>
>>323710764

I already own it on my Dreamcast so I never bothered with a download version.

Why hasn't online shopping killed Gamestop yet? The only benefit to going there anymore is you don't have to wait for shipping, but is it really worth it when you take into account:

>Waste gas getting there and going back
>Get taxed
>Fleshy ads try to talk you into preordering the flavor of the month game
>Buying new doesn't even ensure you get a factory sealed copy

Puerto Rico wouldn't have had this problem if they just agreed to be a state already.

I've been a loyal Amazon customer for years, but they have fucked up so badly during the past two Black Fridays, that it is obvious why GameStop is still in business.

GameStop regularly offers certain games for massive discounts. In an effort to stay competitive, Amazon and Walmart TRY to match the same prices, but often still charge more.

GameStop has preorder exclusives on games, often adding even more to existing offers. Amazon has been massively scaling back exclusives, so much so, that they only offer what is included by default by publishers.

TL;DR: The competition offers a lot less, and only play keep up.

They didn't even try to compete, you were usually watching Game ads about a new game or console pack around christmas, but Gamestop? Never.

Mexicans are barely even a people. They did't even exist before about the 16th century or so. Mexicans were born when Spanish conquistadors raped what was left of the central native americans after they devastated them with war and plague. Mexicans are the absolute bottom shit tier of the entire hispanic world without question.

I'd call Mexicans the niggers of the Hispanic world but that would be an insult to niggers. At least they evolved and cultivated their own native land. Mexicans had to be raped into existence. The earth didn't produce them naturally. They are an abomination created by horny spanish fucks.

Negative. Native Puerotrican people originated from the Boricuas. The Boricuan people existed on the South American continent for thousands of years and settled the carribean through advanced seafaring navigational techniques. Sure the Spanish came and raped and pillaged everyone in the area but the point is Puertoricans were an established identity long before the Old World came to the New World.

Mexicans, on the other hand, are genetically the descenants of the spanish raping the native central americans. THAT is their heritage. DIsgusting rape babies.

Please pick up a history book. Of course PR is very diverse now. I was talking about the origin of the original puertoricans (La Boricua) from THOUSANDS of years ago. You know long before blacks, Spaniards, and moors ever came to the island (which all happened in the 20th century).

FUCK YOU! Is because of leftist, parental nanny states the we have 50% unemployment of people capable of working, because the states gives them enough free money and handouts.
