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.
