GameStop expects Kinect to be on short supply this holiday season. The reason for that is the new audience which the product targets. This information comes shortly after Don Mattrick strongly suggested to buy Kinect otherwise it might not be on time for Christmas.
I think you are going to have consumers following the UPS truck to our stores to pick up that product as soon as they can find it. So, we are not only excited with the sale of Kinect and with Move, both of which are going to be in short supply during the holiday season, but we like the fact that they are bringing expanded audience to games.
- Tony Bartel, executive VP GameStop
It seems GameStop is very confident about the sales. Do you think it will be indeed difficult to find Kinect in stores during this winter holiday?
