GameStop isn't just surviving as the video game industry marches toward a digital sales model -- it's thriving. In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos explains how. With game publishers like Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts reporting record digital revenue, GameStop just managed its best sales results in years. Sure, the retailer had some help from Take-Two Interactive  and its blockbuster Grand Theft Auto V release.

But GameStop also logged steady growth in its mobile and digital initiatives as well. And, most importantly, the company is making full use of trade-in business to give it a critical pricing advantage over competitors. That points to continued outperformance for the retailer through the holiday season, Demitrios argues.
