UK trade publication MCV recently caught up with GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs to talk to him about the stock situation of the Nintendo Switch leading up to Christmas. He told the publication that Nintendo needs to take some real credit operationally for how they’ve managed to deliver. You can read the interview, below.
“We’ve got enough Switch coming in on a week-by-week basis, Nintendo needs to take some real credit operationally for how they’ve managed to work this through.”
“We’ve now got a constant supply of stock coming into the business on a weekly basis, Don’t get me wrong I don’t have [Distribution Centre] stuffed full of 100,000 units, but we do have a good, regular supply from Nintendo.”
“The only reason that we wouldn’t see [stock] is if demand picks up any further but I wouldn’t see that as a bad thing.”
“I’m not sure on that, it’s probably going to be the number one tech-toy for peak, so I think across those two spectrums and across such a wide-ranging base of gamers who all want to play Nintendo Switch I think we’re clear it’s got great demand, the absolute peak of that demand I don’t think we’re anywhere near yet.”
