Jim,I'm no expert, but Tom E and RP have been all over this on the GME board. And RP just posted this gem: http://boards.fool.com/1081/which-company-is-this-28910956.a...My overall take is that the market has declared GME "Netflixed" way too early. Blockbuster was way too late in responding to the threat of NFLX. But GME is actively working on the digital strategy. They have been making acquisitions in on-line gaming (like Kongregate, so I'm not sure about your comment about them moving away from PC games), have partnered with publishers to deliver digital content through their stores (Microsoft), have started a new PowerUp rewards program which is showing great results, and they have the additional advantage of being everywhere with more than 6,000 internationally. I'm not saying that this means they will ultimately be successful, but if Blockbuster took these kind of serious steps early on, Netflix might have been "Blockbustered."You are probably aware, but the best source of info here is Tom E's page post --> http://boards.fool.com/1081/gamestop-page-13-28827237.aspx. -Dave.
