Yet another comment about the Switch from GameStop. COO Tony Bartel spoke to investors today and had some comments about the Switch. Saying that the demand is “incredibly strong” and that the attach rate for Zelda is nearly 1:1. Software sales in general seem very good going by his comments:
“The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get it into our stores, it’s out within hours. So we anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year.”
“The other thing is, every game that’s out there, to have over a five and a half attach rate to this, signifies that a lot of people are finding this a great platform and they’re picking up any games that they can. I mean, we have almost a one-to-one attach of Zelda.”
It’s definitely a good thing that Nintendo intends to double the production of the system for the next fiscal year, they could very well sell every system they make if the demands stays this high.
