Circuit City is No More

March 9, 2009 -

Gizmodo reports that Circuit City has slipped quietly into that retail good night.

Individual stores of the bankrupt retailer spent their final hours over the weekend selling off their remaining merchandise and then even getting what they could for their empty shelves.

Re: Circuit City is No More

I feel bad for the tens of thousands of people who are now jobless.

I'm royally pi**ed at the executive management of the company who will probably walk away from this with millions and be courted to run some other company into the ground while again walking away with millions.

On the other hand I feel bad for the executives too. Can you imagine not being able to get a new BMW every year? Some of them might even have to sell their summer homes. Oh, the humanity.

I went into my local CC store every weekend. Not once did I see a price I couldn't have gotten lower elsewhere. It still amazes me that people were lining up to buy merchandise they could have gotten cheaper elsewhere.

Re: Circuit City is No More

Every once in a while they had some seriously awesome game sales, $5 each. There's a lot I'll snag for that little. I think the last one we were at a few years ago, I got 23 games.

But in general? Prices weren't worth it, often had stuff above list (so did Comp-USA), staff was unhelpful.

Whelp, good thing that Best Buy was just built near the Circut City, otherwise where would we have to go for our big box electronic store needs? Wait? I think I smell conspiracy! Best Buy has been planning this coup all along!

Re: Circuit City is No More

Ironicly a Best Buy was built in my mall, which was across the street from Circuit City.

CC should have died a long time ago.  The fact they dragged out their death this long was amazing.

Re: Circuit City is No More

I wonder what my old CC manager is doing? Probably sitting behind the building, drinking a quart of Mad Dog, muttering to himself "False advertising is bad. Employee mistreatment is bad. DIVX was a bad idea..."

Re: Circuit City is No More

Well then, as long as they didn't go gentle into that good night, everything's just fine.

Re: Circuit City is No More

Selling your very shelves probably counts as raging.

Infophileas being "family friendly." A kid could easily flip an option and be hit with a torrent of abuse they weren't expecting.05/26/2015 - 5:30am
InfophileI think Nintendo was between a rock and a hard place with voice chat in Splatoon. Leave it in, and jerks will drive off younger players. Leave it out, and competitive players won't play. Even if it were in but disabled by default, they couldn't sell it...05/26/2015 - 5:29am
Matthew Wilsonthis is a nice video on P.T https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-85jO6nRNQ05/25/2015 - 11:57pm
Matthew Wilsonmaybe, but its still kinda sad even as a joke.05/25/2015 - 11:51pm
Goth_SkunkThe best commentary is delivered through humour.05/25/2015 - 11:36pm
Andrew EisenIt's not needed. It's a joke. Albeit one with quite a bit of commentary packed into it.05/25/2015 - 10:59pm
Matthew Wilsonmot game related, but still interesting. http://www.polygon.com/2015/5/25/8654983/jurassic-world-chris-pratt-apology the fact that this is even needed in modern culture is a embarrassment.05/25/2015 - 10:26pm
Matthew Wilsonyeah, but with no voice chat its doa.05/25/2015 - 9:48pm
TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm
