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
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.
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.
>country so fucked up that your utility company runs the risk of shutting down entirely by midsummer
Fucking hell, what is up with your country, PRfags? How can y'all fix it before you have to pedal bikes to power your vidya?
Really depends on the part of Shitcago you go to. Where I live (near the airport) we've had two cases and one of them was purely accidental.
Now if you take the red line prepare your anus.
>Gamestop leaves Puerto Rico
>Amazon Prime members can now have 20% off
They are going out of business. Greet your new overlords
Doubt it, Gamestop bought most big gaming stores here and now they going to die with them. And no one with their right mind would run a business here how things operate at the moment.
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.
>buy DRM free games on Humble Bundle/GoG/Desura/itch
>don't delete your installers when you download them
>at zero risk of your games suddenly disappearing from your library because a vendor decided to fuck you/somebody went out of business/other bizarre business shit occurred
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.
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.
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.
Republicans don't want you guys here because you mainly vote democrat.
>Puerto Rico is landlocked
>nothing stopping them from just going to South America
Hey, some people post drunk, and that's okay. Some people post stoned, and that's alright too. But don't you think there are some more productive things you can be doing while you're on acid?
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
>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
>Why hasn't online shopping killed Gamestop yet?
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.
I do, holy fuck can't believe I share the same space with such peasant.
>shows Gamestop from PR
>has ps4 pre-order with some shitty AAA titles that were fucking garbo.
>WHAT R U POOR?!?! EQUISD
I'm not good at Economy. How can the sales tax here in New York City be lower than in California, Puerto Rico, and Alabama?
All that talk about games soon going full digital when the hard drives that come with the system can barely hold all those 30+ gig games, each with a 4 gig patch or two. I put off buying a lot of games during sales because of how large the file sizes were.
To be honest in Spain they have always been dead, everyone knew Game before Gamestop so they were Tim Buckley's son here.
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.
I don't know about weeb girls but PR girls are better imo
AJAJAJAJJAJA PEUERTO RICO
Funny thing is, Game bought the Gamestop stores in Spain when Gamestop decided to get the fuck ou of here. The reward from spending all that money? Shipments of shitty 8-10 year old games to the Game stores.
Yeah I worked there
Puerto Rican here.
I just want you all to know I exclusively fuck white women. I've never even fucked my own ethnicity before and don't have much interest. White women are very docile which I enjoy.
Yeah well puerto rico was the one and only fucking exception because shipping to here is 15 fucking dollars on average, fucking cunts.
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.
You are a retard or a blissful morons, PR has people how are a mix of black slaves, natives, Spaniards and moors.
PR here, atleast we're not as bad as India
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).
Fucking ignorant ass white people. Don't you got a cousin too fuck or something?
Literally everyone was born out of the fertile crescent and started off darkskinned in any case.
Natural selection over a long period of time led to lighter skintones farther away as humanity spread.
holy shit i bought an nes and an n64 in this fucking place. My fellow boricua anons,its good to know we have been close at some point. (not anymore though,i left this fucking shithole)
i go to gamestop to look for ancient ass games i missed out on. for new games i just buy them at Walmart.
>waste gas driving
nigga plz i drive for fucking fun anyways in a car that gets 8 miles to the gallon
i do buy all my computer shit online at newegg though
>i do buy all my computer shit online at newegg though
Anon, I'm Elderly. As a child, I knew that NewEgg was a bad place to buy computer parts due to their markup compared to local stores.
>Fucking ignorant ass white people
Listen ass whippe I am Puertorrican and there was three tribes on the Island, Tainos been the dominate ones, and they are thought to have come from Venezuela like their rivals, which I can remember their names right now.
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.
Fuck you, you worhtless leach you are the reason people leave the Island, because they don't want to be taxed to hell and back to keep you living like a damn nigger.
We cant prosper because the the gov thinks it owns the people and need to keep us in check.
We do. Our government is shit and forced them to move.
I hope the mom and pop shops here boom with business with them gone. Specially now that the shipping contract will be gone when gamestop leaves.
Its kinda sad though. If the mom and pop shops don't pick up business I'll have to start ordering my CDs online.
This post is retarded. The natives of our island were the Tainos, which were originally from Arawak. Borinquen is a word the spanish word for Boriken, which was how the natives called the island.
t. native islander.
Please, continue regaling us with your varied tribal histories, I'm especially curious as to how all these distinct, varied cultures ended up putting their cars on cinder blocks.
Why do you guys come to the mainland and basically refuse to assimilate? It's like you guys acknowledge what a shithole you come from and yet you're still proud of it. The bravado couldn't be any more hollow or embarrassing. P.S. it's extremely rude to speak Spanish which you know the people around you don't.
Not him, but people everywhere are a bunch of proud asshole in generals, but Puertorican are plain dumb and obnoxious like a child trying to get the attention of his parents. That's why most Puertoricans shout "Yo soy Boricua pa' que tu lo sepas" because of how insignificant they know they are, that if they don't scream for attention they wont be noticed.
PR is the Greece of America with all their shitty debt and financial situations.
This is why I hate when people get excited about the possibility of PR becoming a state. You think Mississippi is bad? PR will be the new Mississippi if we give them statehood.
