GameStop To Receive Partial Revenues Of Xbox’s Digital Sales

Last week GameStop announced they entered “Multi-Strategic Partnership with Microsoft.” This partnership would see GameStop use Microsoft’s cloud-based infrastructure for back-end sales and the use of Microsoft Surface tablets. However, there seems to have been something that got glossed over which would have a huge impact on GameStop.

Domo Capital Management President Justin Dopierala recently sat down with Ars Technica to reveal that GameStop will receive a share of Xbox’s digital revenues.

Dopierala stated:

“I received an email from [GameStop Investor Relations representative] Eric Cerny and in the email he said, ‘We are allowed to state we will receive a portion of the downstream revenue from any device we will bring into the Xbox ecosystem.’”

Anthony Chukumba, an analyst for Loop Capital, confirmed this by adding:

“The way it’s going to work is for every Microsoft Xbox console that GameStop sells going forward, GameStop will get some percentage of the revenue from every digital full game download, DLC, microtransaction, and any subscriptions as well,”
