GameStop: Switch Provided “Dramatic Lift” In In-Store Traffic, Has Wii-Like Potential For Wider Audience

Here is yet another extremely positive comment from GameStop, this time from CEO Paul Raines

“Purchase intent for Switch and Scorpio is at PS4 levels or higher. Just a note on the Switch launch: We have had a very successful launch so far, with high attach rates of software, particularly Zelda and related addons. The Switch has provided a dramatic lift in traffic in-store, and has real potential to be Wii-like in its potential to expand the gaming category from core to broad audiences.”

Switch continues to see very high demand, and with a decently steady supply of games coming throughout the year (plus E3 announcements) it should hopefully maintain it all year long.
Assuming that happens, I wonder if third parties that say they’re waiting on sales numbers will start supporting the system?
I guess we’ll find out as the year goes on.

He's been playing video games his entire life, and has gotten progressively worse at them as he's gotten older and more decrepit. He's been running this place (into the ground) since 2013. He's old. Keeps writing about Nintendo despite mountains of evidence proving he should never write anything. Very old. Lifelong Nintendo fan, doesn't care what you think about that. Did I mention how old he is? Because he's very old.
