GameStop had their earnings call today to investors, and CEO Tim Raines is very impressed by what he saw from the Nintendo Switch.
“The Nintendo Switch, which I played at Nintendo a few weeks ago, we believe could be another game-changer that will expand the audience for gaming… The Switch is a very interesting device…. A movement-related game is more fun for kids, you know… you can really do a lot of interesting things with that in gameplay… I think it has tremendous potential as a game-changer. We’ll have to wait and see. Like everything else in this industry, the consumers will vote with their dollars.”
This is the now the second executive that has come out recently with very good impressions of the Switch. Earlier this week, Bethesda’s Todd Howard praised console.
I can’t help but feel that Nintendo has some sort of ace up their sleeve regarding the console. I can be wrong, but it seems both Howard and Raines know something that the general public is not aware of yet. We will know in January, when Nintendo releases more information, I suppose.
