All good things must come to an end, and for fans of Best Buy’s popular Gamers Club Unlocked, this particular news will be tough to swallow. Many enjoyed the annual subscription for the 20 per cent discounts it offered on brand new games, but it was clearly putting the company out of pocket, because it’s been cancelled.
While the organisation will continue to honour any existing memberships, you’ll no longer be able to renew. This means that once your current subscription lapses, its game over on those sweet savings. Rumours that the retailer was planning to cancel the program have been swirling for some time, but a leaked internal memo sent to staff earlier in the week has since confirmed the news.
Were you a member of Best Buy’s Gamers Club Unlocked? How is this going to affect your purchase of new games? Is this news going to push you closer to digital purchases, or will you be sticking with physical despite the dismissal of these deep discounts? Cycle through the stages of grief in the comments section below.
