Videogames retailer GameStop posted total sales for the second quarter ending July 31, 2010, up 3.4% to $1.8bn (£1.16bn). Like-for-like store sales increased 0.9%, which it said was primarily attributable to sell-through of new hardware systems and new videogame titles.

Strong market share gains contributed to a 5.3% increase in new videogame software sales, while net earnings for the period increased 4.2% to $40.3m (£25.9m), compared with net earnings of $38.7m (£24.9m) in the same period the previous year.
