I’m not a fan of GameStop anymore. I haven’t been for a few years now. Rarely will I go to Gamestop to make a gaming purchase. As a former employee, the pressure of making pre-orders to keep your job and very low pay makes it very undesirable to work there. My condolences go to those who work for the store, dealing with the customers and harsh corporate environment. Well, if you work there, then you get a discount on the merchandise…and apparently a PS4…?
The Gamestop expo recently happened and all of the managers will be receiving PlayStation 4 with a few games. I think Sony is trying to make sure that they mean business and what better way to do that than to send Gamestop managers PS4’s? Some call it good marketing, some call it a suck-up, some call it selling your soul to Gamestop and then the temporary rainbow at the end is a PS4 waiting for you.
My thoughts? Well…I wouldn’t work for them just to get a PS4. Low pay, lousy benefits and a tough environment isn’t worth it.
