If you haven’t found a Nintendo Switch, it may be heard to find one for a little bit. GameStop has gone on record stating that they expect the popular system to be sold out for quite sometime and it could take all year long. Here is what GameStop chief operating officer Tony Bartel had to say:
“The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get any in our stores, it’s out within hours. We anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year”.
Nintendo has to be pleased with news like this and it will only getting better. With games like Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the way, it looks like the Switch is going to enjoy a healthy year sales wise. Let us know if you have gotten your hands on one.
Major retailer Gamestop has gone on record praising the recent success of the Nintendo Switch. The company has stated that sales for the system have been phenomenal and that they will continue to push stock of the hot console. Here is what they had to say about the system:
“The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii. Initial sales on this have been phenomenal. I can’t give straight numbers, but I can say we’re seeing one of the highest attach rates of software and accessories to a device that we’ve seen in a long time.”
“We’re seeing tremendous success with the power chargers for the Nintendo Switch, as well as people coming in and picking up extra Joy-Con so people can turn it into a four-player device. We will soon be going online with all-new bundles. Because of the popularity of Zelda, which is one of my top picks, we’re putting together a Zelda bundle of hardware and accessories for customers to pick up online.”
I am absolutely LOVING the new Zelda and have been taking my sweet time with the game. I am hoping to have a review on the website soon.
Gamestop has gone on record stating that the Nintendo Switch was a massive success as a new console launch. GameStop Senior Director of Merchandising, Eric Bright, has given his views on how the launch went up and down GameStop’s throughout North America. Here is what he had to say regarding the systems launch:
“Stores across the country last night were packed with customers who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the brand new Nintendo Switch. We even had customers lining up as early as yesterday morning so that they could be one of the lucky ones to score one of the additional units for our walk-in customers. This is one of the strongest and most successful gaming console launches for GameStop in the last several years. For those fans who are still looking for the Nintendo Switch, don’t worry–we’re getting more. And, we’re pretty sure that there are a lot of gaming fans who pulled all-nighters last night playing their new Switch, and who also called in sick to work today with ‘game-fluenza’ just to stay home and play even more.”
