Immediately after Sony announced PlayStation Now during CES 2014 yesterday, GameStop shares plummeted more than 9 percent, presumably on the assumption that allowing users to rent PlayStation games could negatively impact GameStop’s business. However, GameStop says it looks forward to working with Sony to find a way to sell PlayStation Now memberships to customers in-store.
GameStop wants to work with Sony to sell PlayStation Now memberships to customers in-store, a senior public relations director for the Grapevine, Texas company told GameSpot today. Just like GameStop worked with Sony to add PlayStation Plus memberships to in-store shelves, the company hopes to do the same with PlayStation Now. “GameStop has built a $600MM digital business, with most of the digital games sold through our stores. Similar to how we worked closely with our partner Sony to successfully sell the PlayStation Plus service, we are looking forward to working with them on including the new PlayStation Now service as part of our portfolio of gaming products we offer our customers,” a representative for the company said.
