imho price is the deciding factor for most gamers.

there is no need to visit a physical store for game demo since we can just view the Let's Play gaming experience walk through.

so the upcoming gaming store should have online portal for delivery and frequent promotions to entice potential customers.

perhaps even a mobile app with discount code without minimum spending.

One Stop Shop that has everything and best of all with regular promotions or discounts. maybe freebies if you spent a certain amount. not only these, it has to cater to both pc gamers as well as console gamers.

As a Console Gamer :

1) It will be great if the store acts as a 3rd party to facilitate the trading/exchanging of games.
2) It will be even better if the stores provides games loaning service, like gamers can rent games (weekly basis) to play and when they complete or sick of the game, they can return it. Loaning and returning process can be like a library. Drop off point.
3) Pricing, pricing, pricing.
4) Membership exclusivity. (cheaper games, exclusive pre-ordering, special events)

As a PC Gamer.

1) 1 stop centre for parts/monitors/peripherals.
2) can use the same idea mentioned for console gamers as well.


Overall as a game store.

1) Invite professional gamers for autography, launch etc.
2) Hold pubstomp for major events. Eg: Dota2: The International
3) Great Service.
4) ATTRACTIVE + COMPETITIVE PRICING.


OH BTW.

IF POSSIBLE DO INCLUDE CHIO BUS PLEASE.

ultimately, i hope harvey norman doesnt fail like challenger. (i know this thread is 'supported' by you)

challenger did the same, testing stations, supposed 1-stop shop. collapsed in a few years.

WHY?

sinkies just want cheap things.

the rest are just talk.


edit: dont bother too much about testing stations. you will end up with a lot of hoggers, in the end will do the same thing, unplug controllers and kept by staff. they are going to test the games in your store, then buy from carousell, or play-E with a coupon.

An ideal gaming store should sell games from different regions, not only SG/Asia version.
