That big whopping chain of stores by the name of Best Buy is now adding "dedicated, informed, and engaged" videogames employees to flog their wares.
They're tasked with getting customers to pre-order, to sell "exclusive digital add-ons," and work by their new game sales desks. Trade-in credits are offered.
Those credits for second-hand games aren't just to buy other games though but can be used for any monetary purchase at Best Buy. Has the videogames retail sector just got sexy? No, but at least now Best Buy understand people like to buy games, which is good.
GameStop of course have just bought Stardock's Impulse digital store platform. It's almost as if the traditional retail sector is waking up and know a thing or two needs to change.
