Sony Incentivizes Gamestop Managers to Push PS3s


Gamestop managers whose stores outperform other district branches in PS3 console sales will be handsomely rewarded thanks to a Sony-sponsored “contest.” claimed in a news item today that Sony is dangling incentives in front of Gamestop managers whose stores sell the most PlayStation 3 units.

In what is apparently a Gamestop memo, managers are advised that stores with the highest average PS3 sales in a given district will win 20,000 points redeemable at the company’s website. One overall winner will be showered with an additional 10,000 points.

It appears Gamestop customers would be well-advised to do their research on console choices before entering the store, and to not necessarily rely on employee advice.
