A recent news story reported that some individuals prefer playing video games instead of having sex as a way of relieving stress.

With Valentine's Day tomorrow, GameStop has put together some sweet, last minute deals on video game hardware and software, and other merchandise that will make the perfect gift for the ultimate "co-op partner."

"Love is in the air this time of year, and we want to help gamers enjoy private time with that special someone by enjoying the ultimate stress reliever… playing video games," said Randy Gier, chief marketing officer at GameStop. "There is no better way to say 'I love you' than to take advantage of all the 'perks' Grand Theft Auto V has to offer, which is why we're discounting this game and many others at $20 off." 

Love-struck gamers who are struggling with what to give their significant other can take advantage of GameStop's deals on consoles, games, and collectibles offered all week long. Discounts include:
  • Take over the world of Grand Theft Auto V with a $20 discount from February 13 - 21, or the world of Final Fantasy XV with a $20 discount from February 15 - 21.
  • Two is better than one! Purchase any pre-owned PS4 or Xbox One game and receive a second pre-owned PS4 or Xbox One game for 30 percent off.
  • Customers can give the gift they both can enjoy with $50 off Xbox One consoles from February 17 - 25 and PS4 consoles from February 12 - 25.
  • From February 13 - 26, be the ultimate Co-Op couple with $20 off Gears of War 4 and Halo 5.

  • As an extra bonus, For Honor, Ride 2, and Sniper Elite 4 will launch on Valentine's Day at all GameStop locations, making for the perfect 'I love you' gift.
