GameStop CEO says Switch could be a “game-changer”
During GameStop’s earnings call today, CEO Paul Raines talked a bit about Switch. He shared some positive comments about the system, stating that it could be a “game-changer.”
Raines noted, “The Nintendo Switch, which I played at Nintendo a few weeks ago–we believe could be another game-changer that will expand the audience for gaming.”
GameStop’s management also said that PowerUp Rewards members are interested in Switch. Twenty-seven percent of these members who are aware of console plan to buy it. GameStop suggested that the number could rise following January’s event, but it’s already in line with that of the Xbox One at a similar point in time.
