7-Eleven gets Gamier

Convenience store chain 7-Eleven announces plans to expand its game-oriented offerings, after dabbling in game sales for a while now, partnering with Nexon on a promotion, and famously breaking the street dates for Halo 3 and Wrath of the Lich King. The announcement lists a number of AAA titles to be carried by the Slurpee purveyor, and quotes 7-Eleven gaming and electronics category manager Michael Jester saying this is not just a holiday promotion: "This is not just a holiday promotion for us, but a brand new product line-up that will be available year-round. We may not be a total entertainment destination ... yet, but we're hoping to expand our selection beyond the high-dollar, hot- selling games to include options for all budgets, like value-priced video games as well as DVD movies. For consumers wanting convenient one-stop shopping for at-home entertainment along with groceries and gas or who just want to avoid big-store shopping inconveniences, their local 7-Eleven store is open and ready."

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
