"I don't think retail is going away. But I think retail will evolve. Or the smart ones will evolve. I think it's consumer behaviour is changing, number one. Number two, Apple has set the bar real high for retail experience. So if you don't have a great physical retail experience I think you'll suffer. Buying physical things online, people have become more and more comfortable with that. There's digital, and it's also, and I don't know GAME's management, but it's also how was the business managed? Was it managed well? I think it's probably a bunch of those things." - Gamefly co-founder Sean Spector
I really do enjoy the retail experience, so I'd hate to think that it would disappear. I like being able to buy things online as well, but there's just something about walking into a physical store and buying a game that can't be beat.
Our year-long sponsorship with Nicalis is ending today (May 31st, 2016). We would like to thank Nicalis for their support over the last year, keeping GoNintendo ad-free for 365 wonderful days. It's been a pleasure to provide all of you with an ad-free year, but sadly we must now return to a more traditional ad-sponsored layout. That will be happening later tonight.
