GameStop Launching its Own Android Gaming TabletS

Still not convinced that mobile and tablet games are real video games? Gamestop doesn't agree.

The largest retailer of video games in the world today said that they are prepping to launch their own brand of Android gaming tablet next year, something they are calling a "GameStop certified gaming platform."

What's that mean. We're not really sure, but we've reached out to GameStop for more details. We do know that this also seems to tie into the previously reported news that the retailer would be taking iOS devices as trade-ins which can then be used for store credit.

It's a strange, brave new world out that and GameStop is all over trying to be at the top of this new heap.
