Well that’s not good.

My main question is: What about EU players without GS?
Will there be GS country exclusive stuff? Because I loved how Kongregate was totally international.
Please think of the dudes outside GS countries, and don’t f*ck us in the ass! Pretty please! :)

i sure would hate if international players weren’t included. that would really suck :(

Wait, I’m from Canada, and the “counterpart” of GS is EB Games. Does that still count?

yeah EB Games is in Australia too, i didnt know they were counterparts.. : /

I’m pretty sure we’ll be having nothing but good changes. :3
Kongregate would not be a part of Gamestop if it were any other way.

Clarifying: EB is owned by Gamestop now, has been for years. Purchasing EB, which was international where GS was only in US, put them in a global market. Any offer/sale/special you see advertised for GS works for EB/GameCrazy/Babbages/etc. as well, as they are all part of the GS monster. If you have none of those stores, well you might be SoL, don’t know. I’ve heard a lot of the long-running promotions are now unavailable on the website (discount on used with card, discount when buying the guide with a game, etc.)

As a brand-new Kongregate member, I really hope this goes well for the site. I would hate to think I joined just in time to witness a downfall.

I doubt they’d add some kind of real-life discount for leveling up on Kongregate, it would promote people to hack games more (for having tangible rewards), and would not be good for their business (losing money and all).

Having some kind of discount might actually be better for their business. It’s a common business tactic to upmark prices and then offer a discount. I mean, it’s not like they’ll ever sell at a loss. It’s also incentivising to buy at GameStop instead of somewhere else. Having the discount from Kongregate also means more people coming here, driving up ad revenue regardless if they cheat or not.

Well, we’d hope to get there at some point, but we’re still pretty new to them. :) I don’t think it’s off the table though – I’d be surprised if they didn’t promote us in the stores at some point.
