Nintendo Switch Sales Could Eclipse Wii According To GameStop Exec

Nintendo Switch News Sonic Mania Delayed

After GameStop announced that a Nintendo Switch restock will come to stores across the country starting March 22, the official Twitter account for the retailer has revealed special trade-in bonuses for those looking to purchase the hybrid console.

Nintendo Switch stock is now in short supply, with Gamestop promising more units arriving for sale at stores later this week. According to United States outlet GameStop, and its merchandising director Eric Bright, meanwhile, the Switch's success could well continue - in fact, he thinks the new system could even do better than the Wii.

Remarking that the console is a "remarkable piece of technology", Bright is stoked for the future of the system, stating: "The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii". He wouldn't give specific sales numbers, but stated that they were "phenomenal".

The Nintendo Switch is now available.

Although investors initially seemed cautious in the days following Nintendo's March 3 release of its newest gaming console, the Switch, shares of the company are up 13% amid indications that there is unexpectedly strong demand for its new device. Nintendo is now facing a very tough market with both of the rivals PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

And while Sony's PS4 continues to sell well and Microsoft's Xbox One has a good heads start, any kind of major Nintendo Switch stock and sales boosts could spell harder times for the competition.

Nintendo Switch may be switching things up for the video game company's shareholders. Many have been unable to claim a Switch for themselves, noting the console's limited availability.

All the other stores have also confirmed the arrival of new Nintendo Switch stock. We will soon be going online with all-new bundles. The Switch already has, in terms of having the most successful launch. Of course, Nintendo has a long way to go before the Switch can threaten the Wii for sales dominance.
