Eric Bright, senior director of merchandising at GameStop, said in an interview with Game Rant that the Switch is off to a “phenomenal” start and could possibly eclipse the sales of the Wii.
|“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.”|
Eclipsing the sales of the Wii would be amazing, it’ll certainly outsell the Wii U with ease at the VERY least.
He also mentioned that they’ll have new bundles available online (meh), including one with Zelda.
|“We’re seeing tremendous success with the power chargers for the Nintendo Switch, as well as people coming in and picking up extra Joy-Con so people can turn it into a four-player device. We will soon be going online with all-new bundles. Because of the popularity of Zelda, which is one of my top picks, we’re putting together a Zelda bundle of hardware and accessories for customers to pick up online.”|
