The speculation has begun, as rumors came from the business world that the Best Buy Cooperation may be interested in buying up smaller gaming conglomerate Gamestop. In an interview with Dow Jones Newswire Robinson had said:
“What I think is something that we’ve missed in the industry and is something other participants have been doing is the proportion of business that is used,” Robinson told DJ Newswires. “We’ve not developed the capability to the extent that other participants have. It’s a very margin-rich portion, so I think there’s opportunity in that business.”
Since this initial comment Robinson has refused to further comment on the speculation. This does bring to mind the question of whether the entertainment outlet actually has the assets to make such a purchase due to its recent financial issues as well as competition questions.
