Posted on 3 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 16 Comments | 0 Likes
GameStop is once again talking up Switch’s strong start and sales.
While speaking with Forbes, senior director of merchandising Eric Bright said Nintendo’s new platform is exceeding expectations. Lining up with what has been seen so far, it’s selling out in hours rather than days. Bright added that high Switch sales are likely to continue “for quite some time.”
Bright’s full words:
“It’s exceeding our expectations. We knew it would be a high demand product, but our Switch allocations are selling out not in days, but in hours…the demand is so high that consumers have to react quickly to be able to get their hands on them. Right now we’re not seeing sales going down at all, and I would expect that to continue for quite some time.”
