My source for games at Fry's electronics seems to have dried up. I purchased a game online and I'm having all kinds of problems getting it to run. Any suggestions were I can purchase games on disk in the Phoenix AZ area or online. Thanks

Hi Grandbanks, and welcome to GameBoomers.

I'm not familiar with retail outlets in the Phoenix area, but Amazon and GameStop are both reliable online sellers of retail boxed games. wave

Best Buy, Frys, WAlmart, Target, Viva Media are a few suggestions for online and/or brick and mortar stores. There are some listings here for retail stores as well.

Thats funny because I quit buying games on disk because of all the trouble getting them to run. I download all my games now and have no trouble with them...So I guess, its different for everyone...

Most stores have reduced the PC game section and are stocking more of the console ones that's why I do most of my shopping on line now.

Best Buy seems to have the largest selection and there is also some Gamestop stores in Phoenix. Compusa used to stock a lot but I haven't been to that one in years and don't even know if they are still in business.

CompUSA croaked at least 8-10 years ago.

CompUSA is still around, they just changed their name to Tiger Direct.
