That looks great.

Dan shame you can't open up a vidya store in america because gamestop has exclusive license.
>>
>>315362818
It could have been a nice topic, but it seems every other vidya store looks the same.

Also, I don't think

Every Mexican ive ever known has a psp. Is that true anon?
>>
>>315363034
No way that's true, there are still small locally owned game shops around, they are just usually out competed by gamestop
>>
>>315364028
They were super popular because you could pirate games somewhat easily compared to getting an R4 or a supercard,I don't even know how much did it cost to get a chip installed, I never had one. the only game I saw mexican kids play on them were FIFA, just like every other console.

>We were on a third floor, the other store was on the first floor and you had to walk a little
>"Of course, sir, please consider we're 15 minutes away from closing time, if you want the game for today and want to buy it hereyou might not make it in time"
>"Yeah thanks sure"

>tfw locally owned video game stores are a rarity in america

feels bad man. i'd love to see some family owned stores selling a wide variety of games from older generations to newer. If i were ever able to open a store that sounds like something i'd love to do.
>>
>>315364028
I'm a Mexican and yes, everyone owned a psp at some point in their lives here.
The Vita had a small boom but then everyone realized it's really hard to mod it and hack it so no one has one now.

>Be a manager at a Laundromat
>Literally have to deal with this everyday
WE CLOSE AT 8 FAGGOT, YOU LITERALLY HAVE 12 HOURS TO COME DO YOUR CLOTHES WHY DO YOU WANT ME TO OPEN UP THE BUSINESS SO YOU CAN CLEAN YOUR SHIT AT 8PM? I'D HAVE TO STAY HERE ANOTHER 2 HOURS
>>
>>315368804
You know why they are a rarity? Because they are not financially viable. They aren't that rare, i see one go out of business a month.

That's Indian, dummy. It's the only video game store franchise in India, and there are only a couple of them at that. Too busy shitting in streets to play non-mobas.
>>
>>315370320
becasue they are empty cases or shit games?
>>
>>315371392
Empty.

>>315371392
