The Nintendo Switch launched on Friday and apparently it was a hit at GameStop says the retailer. Eric Bright, senior director of merchandising told Game Rant that the Switch launch was one of the “strongest and most successful gaming console launches” in recent years.
“Stores across the country [on Thursday night] were packed with customers who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the brand new Nintendo Switch,” he said. “This is one of the strongest and most successful gaming console launches for GameStop in the last several years. For those fans who are still looking for the Nintendo Switch, don’t worry–we’re getting more.”
It will be interesting to see the official sales numbers for the Nintendo Switch within the next few weeks. We know one thing, it can’t be worse than the Wii U launch.
