Gamestop: Interest In Nintendo Switch Is As Much As Xbox One

by Damian Seeto


The Switch could be the device that might make Nintendo popular again in the home console market. Gamestop says its customers are aware of and interested in it.

Gamespot reported on Gamestop’s comments during its latest financial earnings. The biggest takeaway is that many people are interested in the Nintendo Switch.

The company says that “27 percent of GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards members” intend to buy the Switch. This falls in line with the same percentage of PowerUp Rewards members that intended to buy the Xbox One console back in November 2013.

Gamestop further noted that this figure could even go higher when the reveal for the Switch happens in January. After all, we still don’t know the specs of the console and a full launch lineup has not been announced.

In slightly related news, in the same report the company also said that the PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR are selling quite well. They said stock only stay on the shelves for an average of ten days and then they’re gone.

It appears hardware sales for all companies should be healthy within the next few months and next year. Microsoft’s Xbox One S is doing well, but Project Scorpio could be a game changer.
