  • Gamestop Buys Electronics Boutique

    GameSpy.Com is reporting that GameStop has acquisitioned the Electronics Boutique chain for $1.44 billion in cash and stock. The terms of the deal has EB shareholders getting $38.15 and 0.78795 shares of GameStop for each share of EB.
    Oddly enough, EB Games is the richer of the two chains! This officially makes Gamestop the biggest retailer of videogames, topping Best Buy and Wal-Mart.

        You mean they weren't already the same store/company?!

        Electronics Boutique closed down a LONG time ago at my mall. The location is still a game shop, but I can't remember the name of it right now. Gamestop is still alive in the mall, though.
