|About: GameStop Corp. (GME)|By:, SA News Editor

GameStop (GME -5.6%) trades lower after NPD Group data for July shows a drop in video game sales at brick-and-mortar stores.

The company reports earnings on August 21.

What to watch: Execs are likely to be questioned during the earnings conference call on what the expected impact on margins is of the company paying out more for used game trade-ins. It could be a tough sale that the development is positive.
