Mass Effect 1 & 2 selling like hot cakes at Gamestop



January 29, 2010 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: GME

Still plenty of copies I suppose of Mass Effect 2 since stores have stocked up on that title big time and lots of people just plain pre-ordered it....

But.. interestingly... MASS EFFECT 1  is getting bought by those who ignored that title but have gotten excited over Mass Effect 2.  My local gamestop = sold out.  So I bought the first one online.

Therefore.... With this as a catalyst combined with Final Fantasy 13 in March....

And *maybe*  *feint possibility*  Singularity does release before the end of this quarter......

What you have is a No Excuse for Disappointing Investors situation.   GME hovering at $19.XX is a big opportunity...

Of course everytime I get excited over how cheap the stock is.... GME disappoints...

Nonetheless... if I wasn't rifling money straight into MTXX of late.... it would have gone to buy either GME or ERTS.

I have been holding onto GME for a few months now.  From a fundamental perspective this company is a very strong buy.  The real question however, is if investors believe that GME has continued viability over the next 5 years or will become outdated as sales move increasingly to the internet.  I suspect that a few more good earnings releases will convince investors that it still has value and we will see a pop in the stock price.

Wow, I've never looked inot GME before, but after a quick glance this morning, they do present a compelling buy right now. Interesting. Thanks for the idea!

I agree with anticitrade.  These games are moving to download delivery with DRM restrictions, rather than CD/DVD retail distribution.

Don't forget about Battlefield: Bad Company 2!  (EA Games/March)

I haven't been to Gamestop in years.  I buy my games from Steam or GamersGate.  Neither of which are publicly traded, unfortunately.
