GameStop feels the next-gen console launch this holiday season will be “the largest console launch in history.” These words were uttered by GameStop CEO Paul Raines during the company’s Q2 2013 call to investors today. Bartel also said the retailer’s launch allocations for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were “much stronger” than for PS3 and Xbox 360, with the retail chain increasing the supply chain capacity by 60% to ready itself for launch. On the call president Tony Bartel also said that PS4 seemed to be the most popular system with its PowerUp Rewards program members, as firm has 1.5 million members on its PS4 first-to-know list and 700,000 on the Xbox One list. Thanks, GI International.

“I think that, by Sony’s admission, you can tell by the small marketing that was done for this, that their mentality was more of a slow roll than a major launch. This was clearly different than the way that Nintendo approached the DSi, and I think that was by design,” he told Industrygamers.
“I think the story is far from over and being written on the PSPgo. I think Sony knew it was going to be more of a slow build as opposed to a right out of the gate huge release. I’m not sure that anyone that spent a lot of time working with Sony on the launch was really surprised by the way that it’s gone so far.”
Tons more through there. Thanks, GI.

Gamestop executive marketing vice president, Tony Bartel, has told Gamespot that the US retailer now has a “full week’s supply of Wiis.”
“We actually have slightly over a week’s supply of Wiis, which is great,” he said. “We haven’t been there ever since the launch, and so we’re excited about being there.”
Not bad considering the console has been out for a couple of years now. December NPD will be very interesting indeed, we reckon.
