    Mobile payments isn't a game that leading retailers are taking lightly -- especially those in the gaming and electronics industry.

    On Tuesday, gaming retailer GameStop announced that customers can start using Apple Pay as part of the company's nationwide rollout of Apple Pay.

    For Apple, this means Apple Pay comes to 4,200 U.S. video game stores.

    Agreeing that Apple Pay offers a "simple and secure way to pay for items," GameStop is making a big media splash with its plan to offer the mobile money platform to its broad base of customers.

    “We are excited to make it easier and more convenient for our customers to shop at GameStop,” said Jason Cochran, senior vice president of U.S. stores at GameStop. “Providing a positive, memorable customer experience is our top priority. Incorporating the latest in mobile technology, like Apple Pay, into our stores is another way we are offering customers options to help simplify their purchases.”

    During Monday's "Spring Forward" event, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed 2,500 banks have embraced Apple Pay, which is now available in 700,000 retail locations.
