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%.

Speaking to the AP, Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter’s claimed core gamers will keep on buying no matter what’s going on in the global disaster that is “the economy.”
“They may be wealthy, they may be poor, but they have no clue we are in a recession,” he said.
“As long as hard-core gamers have a job, they will continue to buy games,” added IDC analyst Billy Pidgeon.
And retail knows it. Well, Gamestop’s boss does, anyway.
“If the core gamers and the avid gamers are with us through these very unpredictable times, that’s a very, very good sign for us,” said R Richard Fontaine, GameStop’s chairman.
