Gamestop. The most beloved retailer among gamers. We can’t get enough of the place. Another thing that gamers can’t get enough of, when they have the dough, is new hardware.
After this past Friday the 13th, both Nintendo and Gamestop had GREAT luck with their pre order sales numbers for the flagship Nintendo product.
Merchandising VP of Gamestop Bob Puzon, spoke publicly about his excitement (paid for or not) for the Switch.
“The fact that this initial allotment has been completely reserved in a matter of a few days demonstrates gamers’ desire for this fun and revolutionary gaming system,”
Granted this statement sounded quite scripted, I think that the numbers and social media speak for themselves.
