Just an FYI for anyone in Canada, EB Games is rebranding completely to GameStop. What do all of you think about this? They were already owned by GameStop, but I think it’s just a bit sudden. I’m gonna miss that 🍁 on the logo…
Lock if not allowed lol.

I remember when they rebranded EB Games to Gamestop here nearly 20 years ago. It just cemented for me that EB Games was gone for good although they felt more like a Gamestop then an EB Games for awhile to me before the name change.

The best memory I have of EB Games was standing in line waiting to get my Gold copy of LoZ: OoT that I pre-ordered.

EB GAMES hasn't existed in years I don't recall of any that are still around. It appears gamestop is the current place of video games.

I was really confused when I read the title of the forum as I had just picked up Metroid Dread from EB games. Forgot that EB Games was a thing in Canada (Australia here).

While we still have EB Games in Australia (and New Zealand too), I believe I had noticed on my more recent receipts (it's been a little while since I had last shopped there) that it said something to the effect of "GameStop trading as Electronics Boutique".

It may just be a matter of time before the rebranding is reflected here as well, though I would hope not, as I find the GameStop branding to be far blander than that of EB Games here.

That’s sad to see… I still miss Software Etc. and Funcoland where I lived.

In five years when the new consoles are digital only game stores will no longer exist. Just like blockbuster the good memories will live on in our heads.

We don't have any physical game stores left in Norway. The last GameStops went away in 2019/2020 or something.

I don't shop at GameStop anymore and haven't since the pandemic hit. I shop at local retro stores (who sell new games too) and Best Buy or Target is no one else has them.
