GameStop shares dropped 21% after hours, following a 2.8% rise in the regular session to close at $6.51. GameStop forecast adjusted full-year earnings of 10 cents to 20 cents a share with a decline in same store sales "in the high-teens," while analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast $1.21 a share on a 0.3% decline in same-store sales. The company reported a third-quarter loss of $83.4 million, or $1.02 a share, compared with a loss of $488.6 million, or $4.78 a share, in the year-ago period.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast earnings of 11 cents on revenue of $1.62 billion. "Our third quarter results continue to reflect the prevailing industry trends, most notably the unprecedented decline in new hardware sales seen across the market as the current generation of gaming consoles reach the end of their lifecycle and consumers delay their spending in anticipation of new hardware releases," said George Sherman, GameStop chief executive, in a statement.
