GameStop has recently shared its sales performance results from the first quarter of 2017, which were described as “particularly strong” thanks in part to the success of the Nintendo Switch, among other things.  Furthermore, Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmed posted additional facts related to GameStops report on his Twitter.

While the report obviously focuses on GameStop mostly, there are some interesting mentions of the Nintendo Switch. Around 5.4 million console units have been sold between it’s launch in March and now, and the console has a very high attach rate of 6 to 1 for accessories. The strong demand for the Switch is especially noteworthy for occurring outside the holiday period.

GameStop CFO Rob Lloyd said that it was likely even more Switch units could be sold if the company hadn’t had trouble securing enough consoles. “There is a contest among all the retailers, online and in store, with our good friends at Nintendo.” GameStop Company Chief Tony Bartel added that GameStop wasn’t even close to meeting the demand they received for the Switch.

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.”
