GameStop GMs to receive free PS4 consoles

August 26, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment


GameStop is currently holding its annual Expo in Las Vegas where it was just revealed that all General Managers will receive a Playstation 4 console each along with seven games.

Joystiq received confirmation directly from GameStop and also learned that the seven games included free will be Killzone: Shadowfall, NBA 2K14, Madden, FIFA 14, Need for Speed: Rivals, Battlefield 4 and Beyond: Two Souls. Each of the games is obviously a PS4 game except Beyond: Two Souls, which is a PS3 title.

This is a great piece of marketing by Sony and will hopefully help sell more Playstation 4s (provided the GMs have a good experience with the console). It also matches an identical move made by Microsoft – GameStop GMs are getting free Xbox One consoles as well!

GameStop general managers receive free Xbox Ones

by Staff - Leave a comment


Consider yourself very lucky if you happen to be the General Manager of a GameStop store at the moment, because it has just been revealed that as part of the GameStop manager conference happening in Las Vegas next week, all GMs will be getting a free Xbox One console.

The news broke courtesy of the Tweet embedded above, and tech site NeoWin has also confirmed it directly with GameStop. A spokesperson responded that yes it is true, all General Managers of GameStop’s 6,500 retail stores will receive a free Xbox One – and this is regardless of whether they actually attend the conference next week!

No word yet on what games will also be given to the GMs, but I imagine it will be several. After all, as just announced by Sony, they will also be giving GameStop GM’s a Playstation 4 each with seven games! Hmmm, this wouldn’t be an attempt to try and gain some favoritism would it?
