I used to be one of those Gamestop haters, but since the new marketing strategy they employed with the PowerUp Rewards membership, I started doing a lot of shopping there.

If you can get in on their sales you can get a lot for trade-in’s.

I’ll be interested to see what kind of hardware and features this thing has when it comes out. I’ll be honest, it is hard for me to see what they consider “geared towards gamers” when it comes to a tablet. When I hear that I think gimmicky, something along the lines of skins and cosmetics, rather than useful stuff.

Maybe something like a package of gaming related apps that come preloaded? I haven’t dabbled much in android related applications, someone help me out here?
