Nintendo Wii shortages for Christmas 2008 expected by GameStop


Wiis are still available online at Amazon. Click here to buyGameStop retail company CEO Dan DeMatteo said in an interview that more Nintendo Wii shortages are expected for Christmas 2008. To quote him: “I’ve never seen this type of demand before. I know they’re making more [Wii’s], but we’re still short like everybody else. I think we’ll have a continued shortage this Christmas.”

When Mr. DeMatteo was asked when he does expect Wiis to be readily available at retail, he said: “I don’t see a near-term end in sight for Wii shortages, not unless they really ramp up supply. I think they’ve ramped it up 20 percent or so, but Nintendo is fairly cautious by nature. They ramped it up 20 percent and it’s still evaporating. ”

Video: GTA IV the Gamestop way


Time is ticking for the megalithic release of Grand Theft Auto IV and what do you know. The supposed “last” trailer seen a short time ago isn’t the last we’ll get to see of the game. Apparently Gamestop and Rockstar have created a special trailer commercial to showcase the game. Are excited now if you weren’t before? If not, then you may want to check for a pulse, that is if you like this type of game, of course.

Enough is Enough, GameStop


I have been a devout reader of the topics over at Aeropause for about a year now, but recently they have brought up a topic that plagues people around the country and has sparked a heated discussion. The topic pertains to GameStop employees selling already opened copies of games. You know what I’m talking about; when the GameStop employee reaches into the cabinet behind the desk and pulls a copy of the game out of a white cover slip and slides the game into the display box. Then when you come back the next day looking to return the copy for a new sealed game (as stated on the back of the receipt) only to be denied an exchange and offered store credit at a steal. Apparently there are hundreds of people out there that have experienced this same offense many a times and have something to say about it. See now why GameStop and EBgames are starting to lose some loyal customers and what everyone has to say about it.

Have you ever felt neglected by the GameStop conglomerate, or just wanted to vent some frustration nows your chance. Head on over to Aeropause and check it out. You might even find some other topics over there that will spark your interest.
