Best Buy Adding Game Staff

Electronics giant Best Buy is planning on adding sales clerks and in-store sales desks specifically to support videogames, reports Gamasutra from an Analyst Day. This will apparently offer customers the same expertise on games that they can get about the other products they sell, as Best Buy describes the plan to add "dedicated, informed, and engaged employees focused only on gaming." They will drive customers to preorder games and "exclusive digital add-ons," and staff gaming desks, which will "create the destination for trade, preorder and digital offers." They say the changes will take place between now and February 2012.

There was a time, 15 years ago, when BB was awesome. But they've had a long fall since then...

I bet you wouldn't be saying that if you worked there. It was never "awesome" working there in the late 90s.
