After spending much of the last several months desperately trying to find a white-knight savior, Borders
had decided to shutter
all of its remaining 399 stores. The liquidation process will begin as early as Friday according to
Yahoo Finance News, so if you want to get some deals on books, head on over. What I wouldn’t buy is the poorly designed and released Kobo e-reader.
While Borders did not have a direct impact on gaming, consider this a warning shot across the bow to Barnes & Noble, who recently put themselves up for sale. E-Readers as a whole are a fleeting technology (like those silly “flip” cameras), even if they run the Android system and can play games like the Color Nook.
