GameStop sold 600,000 Elite memberships, says company president
During a call to investors today discussing the firm’s financial results, GameStop resident Tony Bartel announced that Call of Duty Elite subscriptions helped pad the firm’s digital sales growth for the quarter.
“In the case of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, we worked closely with Activision, Sony and Microsoft to pre-order and deliver nearly 600,000 instances of the Modern Warfare Elite DLC to date,” Bartel told investors and analysts. “This places the launch of Elite as one of our top 10 launches of the year so far.” Earlier today, GameStop reported 59% growth in digital sales year-on-year, with console digital sales up 63% and PC digital sales up 51%.
