"Hopefully, the company can target a turnaround; it's a staple of a brand, and it's worrying to watch these losses mount."
Ray... um WHAT? Who on earth would want Gamestop to make a turnaround? no one but those in charge of the company. It is also not worrying at all. My friends and I are sitting here reading the article screaming "YES!" "finally!!!" and "good riddance". We hate Gamestop, I don't know anyone who likes gamestop including a former employee friend of mine.
Gamestop needs to go away, disappear, vanish from everyones minds, and that happening today wouldn't be soon enough.

I have a hard time disagreeing, but is there any company aside from Walmart at the moment that's a realistic competitor? I remember the days when Gamestop was actually fun to go to... hardly the case lately. Now we're all online, ordering our games and waiting for them to arrive. A little depressing...
Why was GameStop ever fun? I have only ever purchased 1 game from them and it was a pre-order for the first World of Warcraft expansion. I have never seen a need to purchase anything there they remind me of the radio shack of the gaming world, useless. GameStop has never had a competitive reason to purchase new products from them I have always been better off purchasing games from even just best buy as I at least get rewards points there. They don't have anything unique, their selection isn't any better than Walmart, Target, toys r us, best buy, and their only advantage sometimes are the preorder "goodies" (because they aren't always good) you get.
Here in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles there is a place called Game Dude that's been open maybe 3 decades and it's everything GameStop should be but aren't. I've bough and sold games and systems there my whole life but transitioned to Craigslist a couple of years ago.
