    A game shop

    Because a book shop wont have any video games

    Depends on the game
    Only put games that look good on a demo pod (and no games with 15+ content)

    I have never been in one
    Depends on there price
    Some people wont bother if its a fiver less but if it was a tenner less
    (convert to your own type of money)
    HIRE STAFF THAT KNOW ABOUT GAMES

    1) I don't have one particular place. It depends on the scenario. For quick things, I go to Gamestop. For competitive pricing I go online. To secure hard to find items, I go to a major retailer such as Best Buy.

    2) I probably shop at Gamestop first because it is the closest and quickest fix for games. It is also possible to find last generation games for the gamecube, playstation2 and xbox.

    3) I don't care for demos. I have never bought a game based on a demo. However, listing catalogs of reviews would compel me to come more often. I would not be interested in some proprietary review score system. Perhaps open access to magazines would be a nice thing to read ads and previews and stuff. There are some nice stuff about reading stuff in a paper format.

    4) If it was competitive to Gamestop's pricing. I wouldn't mind having an account system that would get me to trade games to get more competitive rates. It would be nice to see what the approximation of the trade in values would before coming into Best Buy. Gamestop doesn't offer those kinds of services. Selling games on the internet might be slightly better in getting money but people can be real dicks about how the deal is managed. If Best Buy generally can offer better services and respect for the customers, that would be a win for me.

    5) If you can set up everything to edge over Gamestop, people are more likely to come. If you want an idea what you can do to be better than gamestop, I would welcome you to see videos that would advise on how to out do gamestop. There is A LOT of cussing but over look it and you will understand.

    1. where do you go FIRST to get games?
    •Online. SOmetimes at a small business Game place where new games are like $5 cheaper than bigger chains.

    2.Why do you go to ____ 1st?
    Great prices and more convenient.

    3. how important is it to have demos in the store before you purchase?
    Not that important, youtube and google is more important to get gamer reviews before I buy.

    4. would having used games and trade-ins make you shop best buy more?
    Definitely!

    1. where do you go FIRST to get games?
    Gamestop
    2. Why do you go to ____ 1st?
    Because they have used games (i.e. cheaper games)
    3. how important is it to have demos in the store before you purchase?
    Pretty important for the Wii I suppose, but as you can download demos for 360 and PS3, they wouldn't be needed as much.
    4. would having used games and trade-ins make you shop best buy more?
    Definitely
    5. any other comments
    If Best Buy started accepting trade-ins and selling used games, it would be great. It might give some competition to gamestop so they might lower their used game prices and up their trade-in value (that is, if Best Buy has cheaper games). I think that would be a situation in which everybody would benefit.

    Usually anywhere including Best Buy.

    2. Why do you go to ____ 1st?

    Ads/sales.

    3. how important is it to have demos in the store before you purchase?

    Not important at all.

    4. would having used games
    and trade-ins make you shop best buy more?

    No. That's what REAL game stores are for. Best Buy shouldn't follow suit.

    5. any other comments

    Yes. PLEASE STOP telling customers they NEED Monster cables to run their sh*t. Monster is a rip off and thousands of Americans are losing money to this criminal company.

    Well said.
    At least they're not like the folks at circuit city who don't even know what monster cables are. I guess it's a good thing CC went out of business. xD

    usually buy from Toys r us or BB.

    demos i rarely play. nothing i like.

    HELL NO! have you seen their new trade in service????

    target has the DBZ series week of release. BB i have to wait forever

    www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com
    this is where i get most of my electronics... they are way cheaper and have a bigger selection if you can wait...

    I actually didn't wanna see Circuit City go out of business until one day where I had a confrontation with the big security guys.
    They were following me around and pointing fingers at me the whole time I was there. They thought I was there to steal Wii games. lol! I finally couldn't take it and confronted them. I told them off so good they were speechless!!

    Anyway, I hate hearing "Well I know you just paid $300 for a new Blu Ray player but you need to buy this $300 dollar Monster cable in order for it to work right on your TV." I try my best to avoid Best Buy employees. No offense lloyd_yayo since I've never met you in person.

    1. Amazon - I like to read user reviews before buying; even the people who hate it can often reveal reasons why I would like the game (conversely, sometimes the reason people love a game let me know that I would hate it).

    2. whoops, see #1. Also they sometimes have better deals.

    3. Demos not THAT important...more often they make me realize that I would not like a game as much as I expected to. Millionheir Case Files sounded great but when I played it in a Best Buy I just wanted to throw it on the floor and stomp it to death.

    4. Used & trade-ins probably wouldn't make me shop BB more. I sometimes trade in at Gamestop but the prices always suck and they never have a used version of what I want. So it's rarely worth the bother.

    5. If you must put Rock Band demos w/ drums out, where the hell is the drum pedal? How are you supposed to get all the way through a song without the pedal?

    Appreciate it "fellas" - not all of us are fellas; I am much more apt to make impulse buys than my husband. I do shop at Best Buy when I can, and I usually walk out with SOME game for Wii or DS. I have to say the Rewards program used to be better...we used to hold off on buying stuff until we could get out to BB and earn points on it. Now the points earned are so insignificant that it isn't worth thinking about, especially since stuff is a few bucks cheaper on Amazon anyway (which is all the Rewards program amounts to now, at best).
