According to Gamestop, the demand for the Nintendo console switch in the US is unbroken. Eric Bright, a senior director of merchandising, told Forbes that Nintendo’s received follow-on deliveries were sold out again within a few hours. In the past, Nintendo had increased the production capacities and shipped the consoles by air, in order to avoid the long waiting times during a sea transport. By the end of March Nintendo had delivered about 2.5 million consoles.
This exceeds our expectations. We knew it would be a product with strong demand, but our switch allocations are not sold out in days, but within hours […] demand is so high that consumers need to respond quickly to it To get fingers. – Eric said.
