I think there are two huge differences between BBI and GME.

1) GME is not a rental model. They are retail, selling new and used games (of which used games are the higher margin and thus more important). BBI's rental model was destroyed by a more efficient model for renting games via the mail in netflix. GME has never had a rental model so it would not be effected by a new rental company such as Gamefly.

2) BBI had tons of debt and was very vulnerable. GME's financial position is the opposite. They are generating the cashflow to be able to adapt to changes in the market and have more cash than debt.


Long GME.
