Switch provides a boost to GameStop’s sales during the holiday
For the nine-week holiday period ended December 30, GameStop sales increased 10.6% year-over-year to $2.77 billion. A big reason for that? Switch.
GameStop interim CEO Dan DeMatteo said in a statement that Nintendo’s console helped drive the retailer’s sales. Switch, along with the Xbox One, led to a rise in hardware sales by 38.3%. New game sales were also up 7.3% year-over-year, thanks to Switch games and Call of Duty: WWII. Switch was also a major factor in a 33.7% increase in accessory sales.
