Best Buy Is Getting Its Own Video Game Clerks

Retail giant Best Buy revealed yesterday that it's looking to establish dedicated sales counters and staff just to manage the video games it sells.

Think of it as a GameStop within a department store, then.

Called a "gaming transformation" and part of a "drive toward number one industry position", it will mean that Best Buy employs what it hopes will be "dedicated, informed, and engaged employees focused only on gaming."

As a former games retail employee myself, I can only say...best of luck with that.

The new desks and staff should be in place by the end of the year.
