The gaming retailer will offer several ways to get into next gen.
We’re getting ever closer to the launch of new consoles, and people are no doubt thinking about where, when and how they will pick up these systems. Sony will have the PS5, and Microsoft will have the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, with those preorders going live September 22nd. Well, one retailer is looking to give you several options.
While gaming-focused retailer GameStop has had its fair share of financial woes lately, it’s still as viable as any for those purchases as anywhere else. As reported by VentureBeat, the company has internally looked at offering consumers three options besides straight payment. They are installment plans offered through third-party companies like Quadpay that will let you split your payment plan into 4 payments across 6 weeks, a layaway where you put a system on hold and pay on it for a set period of time, and a rent to own with a third party where you take the system of your choice home and pay the rest over the course of up to 12 months with interest.
As of now, nothing official has been announced, but at the very least GameStop seems to want to find multiple ways to sell you one of these new systems. The Xbox Series X and S will launch on November 10th. As of now we don’t know the release date for the PS5, but most expect it to be within a similar time frame.
