It's no secret that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the must-have games in the Switch's launch line-up, but according to GameStop COO Tony Bartel pretty much everyone who bought the system picked up a copy of Zelda BotW too. Demand for the hardware is still high too, with a restock this week seemingly flying off the shelves.
Here's what he said to investors recently:
The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get it into our stores, it's out within hours. So we anticipate we're going to be chasing supply this entire year.
The other thing is, every game that's out there, to have over a five and a half attach rate to this, signifies that a lot of people are finding this a great platform and they're picking up any games that they can. I mean, we have almost a one-to-one attach of Zelda.
GameStop CEO Paul Raines has previously described the Switch has having "potential to be Wii-like" during an earnings report, which will no doubt be music to the ears of Nintendo's shareholders.
What do you think of this comment on the attach rate for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Is it the killer app that the Switch needed?
