Gaming Events and Tournaments at Best Buy

Status: Tell Us More

Best Buy locations have a lot of floor space and technological assets that could be put to use after hours to hold gaming tournaments and events. Best Buy usually has a launch event for major games and will sometimes stay open late to accomodate a midnight or evening release of a new game or system. Ever since my favorite gaming lounge closed, I have been searching for casual locations to meet and play against other gamers in my favorite games like Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart. Smaller gaming retailers just don't have enough space in their locations to stage tournaments that don't feel cramped. I think the Best Buy community in major markets could rally support and gather participants for tournaments for their favorite games, and this would also bring more gamers in to Best Buy, some of which are likely to purchase games and accessories that they find in the store while they are there.

I can't imagine many of our stores would have the floor space for this. With that said, I would like to hear if anyone else would like to see this as a reality? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

Gaming lounges are are great idea.  And big tournaments are a great time. I had even pondered at one time opening a gaming lounge, coffee shop.  

 

But your local gaming lounge closed for a reason.  These places depend on the customers spending money.  Not just coming in and getting a drink and holding onto it for hours.  It is just really hard to do really well.  

 

 

It would really take up to much space for the return on investment.  BB could not charge admittance and I believe they would end up with a number of people just coming in to hang out, take up space, and sometimes purchase something. 

 

Best Buy does sponsor Gaming Tournaments
