In the course of the current annual report the dealer GameStop spoke among other things about the launch of the Xbox One X and attested the console a strong start. In addition, warnings of delivery bottlenecks for Christmas.
On October 28, the world’s leading video game retailer GameStop ended the third quarter of the current fiscal year.
As part of the relevant financial report, the company’s executives also talked about the Xbox One X, which was released on November 7 and is priced at 499 US dollars or euros. According to CFO Robet Lloyd, Microsoft’s new console will become a sales engine in the fourth quarter.
Xbox One X: GameStop speaks of a strong launch
As Lloyd points out, the Xbox One X made a strong start. Within just two days, all copies of the Xbox One X that Microsoft delivered for launch were sold through to the end customer. It also states that all units that Microsoft supplies are still being sold immediately.
Due to the continued high demand is to be expected according to Lloyd with supply bottlenecks for Christmas, as it seems Microsoft will not succeed in the coming weeks, to meet the demand from customers. A relaxation of the market situation is therefore not expected until next year.
