Good news for Nintendo about Nintendo Switch’s demand comes from GameStop, which has seen, according to senior director of merchandising Eric Bright, a “tremendous” demand from customers all over the world and in particular from those who currently adhere the PowerUp Rewards initiative.
“We’ve seen tremendous demand for Switch. And of the initial allocation of pre-orders we took, the majority of them were done by PowerUp Reward customers. They’re definitely looking for this device. We have a ways to go before we satisfy all the demand that’s out there,” he said.
In another passage of the interview he released at adailylist, he added that “there’s no slowdown, and we don’t see that stopping. We see that continuing for some time” so, while we don’t have concrete reports of shortage of sorts, we highly recommend you to get a Nintendo Switch console as soon as you can or even pre-order.
It seems like Nintendo is going to be a talk of the town for many months after the release. We have seen a similar kind of report (on Nintendo Switch demand) in France. The Nintendo Switch pre-order figures are very much similar to that of Wii.
