As the industry continues to push forward into the digital world, retailer GameStop may have to find new ways of generating income.
One of those ways may include various tech products like smartwatches and music players. They'd take them in trade and sell them as used products, as they do with gaming-related software, hardware and accessories.
GameStop EVP of strategic business Mike Hogan had this to say concerning future growth:
"The value strategy goes well beyond just games. We see significant opportunity in emerging technology products as well."
This might also include other forms of "home tech" such as a Beats Pill speaker system. They've already expanded beyond gaming, accepting stuff like tablets, laptops and smartphones in trade, so taking more tech-oriented stuff is a sensible step. After all, those who love video games are often more into technology than others.
I'm not in that group but a great many others are, of course.
