Gamestop exec hints that new Nintendo console launch could be ‘imminent’

Fans and investors are chomping at the bit for any news about Nintendo’s upcoming console, codenamed the “NX.” Many are expecting a big reveal — or at least some news — during the E3 expo in June.

The latest glimmer of NX news is from an exec at U.S. retailer Gamestop — EB Games in Canada — who hinted that new console launches are “imminent.”

“Although we have not modeled extensive growth for new innovation in this presentation, we are very pleased to see the introduction of technology like virtual reality and rumored new console launches, some of which seem imminent,” said Gamestop COO Tony Bartel at an investor-analyst meeting.

Likely the NX is the console he’s referencing, but also could be about a rumoured 4K-enabled PlayStation 4 that might launch with their virtual reality hardware.
