Slurpees, Lotto and Video Games?

7-Eleven as we all know  has been a convenience store and nothing more for years and years,but they have decided to throw their hat into the used game market by beginning to offer used video games. They recently announced their intentions to offer used games in partnership with a company called Game Trading Technologies who will provide the used titles. 7 Eleven plans to only offer games that are $20 or less. Now this poses a few questions  such as

  • Does GameStop give a shit?
  • What quality control measures will be in place to ensure that games work properly?
  • Will 7-Eleven staff get any formal training in dealing with questions about games in general?
  • What consoles titles will be offered ?

7-Eleven brings a new factor into this fight and that is the fact that a majority of their stores are open 24hrs and if the selection of titles is solid and the quality is good I can see this being successful.

Will you buy a game from 7-Eleven?

We have like 2 or 3, towards the North Bronx, which is more suburban, otherwise, the closest thing is the little stores they ahve at gas Stations.
But we have Game Express here, like 3 of them, and that’s a great store.

I know it’s crazy but you know some ass backward parent will complain if their kid buys an MA-Rated game. I surprised that it took this long for a racial reference lol. Can always count on you Ant.

I was trying to be as clean as possible, but when talking about 7-11 there’s no way.

This is rather old. I have seen dirt old 7-11s from my childhood with games as well as ones that recently opened offering games and they have done so for a good 6 years now in some stores. The titles are used and old. No game that I have seen in a 7-11 is even from 2009. theay are all older than that.
