GameStopRetailer GameStop reported its financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended November 1, 2008.
For the quarter, GameStop reported net earnings of $46.669 million, compared with $51.957 million in the comparable quarter the prior year. GameStop pointed out that the lower number this quarter is the result of Halo 3's release in this quarter last year.

Once again, used game software and hardware remain the core of GameStop's business.

In terms of gross profit, however, new sales provided $184 million of gross profit, while used sales provided $205 million of gross profit.
