While most of you remain unconvinced by the heavily rumoured PlayStation 4K, the big cheese at GameStop is rubbing his hands like a pantomime villain. Speaking at an investor day, COO Tony Bartel told an audience that, while the company's not basing its forecast particularly heavily on new formats, it's hyped about all of the rumours.
"Although we have not modelled extensive growth for new innovation in this presentation, we are very pleased to see the introduction of technology like virtual reality and rumoured new console launches, some of which seem imminent," the executive explained. Pressed for more details he added that the company knows "more" than it can share.
In theory, there could be three new console launches this year, with Microsoft expected to introduce a new iteration of the Xbox One and the Nintendo NX also on the way. It's going to be a fascinating few months that's for sure, and with PlayStation VR also due in October, it's easy to see why GameStop is over the moon. Whether consumers will be, though, remains to be seen.
