9to5 Mac says that it has heard from â€œseveral sourcesâ€ that GameStop is about to start selling iOS devices, including iPhones, iPads and iPod touches at their retail stores. Apparently dealers at a trade show in Las Vegas heard the news from GameStop first hand last week. No date is given as to when GameStop might start stocking Appleâ€™s iOS range, but 9to5 Mac reports that GameStop stores have already started accepting iOS devices as trade-ins for credit to buy other goods in the stores. Itâ€™s possible they will wait until October when the next iPhone is due to be released to ensure maximum publicity. The fact that a leading US video games outlet such as GameStop is now moving into iPad and iPhone territory could be seen as a suitable indication of the increasingly high profile of iOS gaming in the wider games market. And itâ€™s yet more brilliant news for Apple too, of course, as theyâ€™ll be reaching yet more customers by having the iOS device range available in such a huge chain as GameStop.
