GameStop is So Thrilled About Switch Sales They Think it Could Eclipse Wii

That’s a pretty bold statement that comes from the current retail industry leader for video game software and hardware sales. GameStop has now publicly commented on the sales success of the Nintendo Switch and needless to say, they are extremely pleased. Eric Bright from GameStop had this to say about the Switch:

“The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii. Initial sales on this have been phenomenal. I can’t give straight numbers, but I can say we’re seeing one of the highest attach rates of software and accessories to a device that we’ve seen in a long time.”

There was a bit more from an interview he participated in, but this is probably the biggest projection news from GameStop in sometime.
