A lot of those Wii Fit
bundles people have been snatching up (and never playing again
) came from GameStop, apparently, as the company reports a net earnings increase of 162.1 percent to $57.2 million in the second quarter. For the period of three months ending August 2nd, sales increased by 34.8 percent to $1.80 billion.
It wasn't all thanks to Wii Fit
, though. There were some other big titles that released during this time period, including Grand Theft Auto IV
and Metal Gear Solid 4
's CEO R. Richard Fontaine is obviously happy about the increase in profits. "By prioritizing our investments and focusing our resources, GameStop continues to significantly outperform the specialty retail segment as a whole, when comparing top-line growth, comparable store sales, and net earnings growth." Yes, but while you're commenting, is there anything you'd like to pre-order today?
