Major retail store GameStop is expanding its product catalog now include PC Hardware, like GeForce’s RTX 3000 series graphics cards and laptops.
GameStop CEO George Sherman stated in a Tuesday earning call (reported by PC Mag) that the company is growing its inventory for consumers’ needs. This includes growing our product offerings across PC gaming, computers, monitors, game tables, mobile gaming, and gaming TVs to name only a few,” Sherman said.
The company also put out a new ad which highlighted various hardware going on sale, including GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs, motherboards, and mini tower cases. Many of the products are already listed in the search results on GameStop’s website, but they only ship to the US. Others aren’t available and a few won’t arrive until April 16th. Nvidia’s RTX 30 series has been extremely hard to find due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage. Of course, this will likely happen at GampStop as well.
It should also be noted that these hard to find cards are price hiked at GameStop, but if you’re willing to pay, the option is there.
GameStop also launched a dedicated PC gaming page, which sells more than just the parts. It also has fully finished desktops, laptops, virtual reality headsets, accessories (like lights and speaker), and video games. The company didn’t specify if these products would be sold in stores or online, but Shrman did say That GameStop will invest more in e‑commerce.
“Global e‑commerce sales increased 175% and represented 34% of total sales in the fourth quarter versus 12% of net sales in the prior year period,” Sherman said.
