Alistdaily has spoken with Gamestop boss Eric Bright and he said the following about Nintendo Switch:
“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.”
