GameStop Acquiring Impulse

GameStop announces the acquisition of streaming technology company Spawn Labs and an agreement to acquire Impulse, the digital distribution service started by Stardock in 2008. According to GameStop CEO J. Paul Raines: "With these important acquisitions, we will continue to make appropriate investments related to our multichannel strategy. GameStop is uniquely positioned to be the leader in both the physical and digital gaming space." There's also a Stardock Community FAQ about Impulse Acquisition by GameStop on Impulse saying this should not affect users' accounts, they do not foresee any layoffs as a result of this, and this does not impact Stardock or its current development plans, as this is a completely separate business.

Wow, you got some inside info there! Wait.. what's that? You have no info and are assuming? Ah, I see.

Don't need inside info, they very thoughtfully published their top ten list. And if you paid any attention, you'd have noticed that the top ten list was almost always their own games. Often you'd see a new game in the list briefly, but they'd drop out quickly. So while yes, it's theoretically possible that their own games were actually selling lost of copies every week, but the more likely case is that it's actually the other software that's selling poorly.

So then when I said you were assuming I was 100% correct then? Okay.
