guess that ebgames will have a 10% price hike on their games to fall in line with gamestop prices. makes me wish I worked at EB way back in high school when they offered stock as bonus or some such.

Hrm. I had thought that EB was larger and in better shape than GameStop. I guess I thought wrong. As long as they continue to carry their huge stock of used PC games, I'll be happy.

I think it would be more likely for all EB to become Gamestop. Who knows.

The best thing EB has going for them, in my case, is the largest selection of used PC games around. I hope they don't lose that when they change over to GameStop. It would be perfect if it were just a cosmetic change, since I love my local EB so much.
