The Xbox One S was first unveiled at E3 back in June and has seen the release of three different SKUs across the last few weeks, coming as a slim version of the Xbox One with a little more power and other capabilities. We haven’t heard any specific details on sales numbers for the Xbox One S yet, but GameStop is definitely happy with the demand thus far.
GameStop held their quarterly earnings call yesterday for their second quarter results, which saw a lot of topics being discussed, including a lot of numbers. They also commented on a lot of other things that didn’t include specific sales numbers, including the Xbox One S.
During the call, Tony Bartel, GameStop’s Chief Operating Officer had the following to say about the Xbox One, as well as a few recent game releases, as revealed by the meeting’s full transcript courtesy of Seeking Alpha.
“We are already excited about the demand that we have seen for the recently launched Xbox One S, No Man’s Sky and Madden 2017.”
He went into a little more detail about how pre-owned stock for the Xbox One and PS4 are actually up 29% on this time last year, with trade-ins towards the Xbox One S 2TB model earlier this month definitely having a factor in that. For what he called the “sold out launch” of the 2TB model, 37% of those purchased at GameStop were funded by trade-in credits.
