New consoles are “imminent” according to GameStop’s COO Tony Bartel. As he said during an Investor Day held in Texas, US, unnamed new gaming platforms are about to release and GameStop is really excited right now, although it can’t share more information regarding them.
Based on Bartel’s information, new consoles are imminent and GameStop already knows what’s going on with the platform holders right now, although they can’t share those info in respect of partners’ privacy and upcoming announcements.
At this point we can’t tell if Bartel was simply talking about NX, the next Nintendo gaming platform, which we already know will be officially presented to public at E3 2016, or the subject of his words were PlayStation 4.5 and Xbox One.5.
A new, 4K capable PS4 model is heavily rumored and a new Xbox One slim model has also been spotted recently, so everything seems possible right now. Would you be surprised to see those new models showing up at E3?
