GameStop's money bin kept on filling up in the third quarter
of its fiscal year, with the company reporting $1.9 billion in sales, up 3.5 percent from the same period last year. The company saw a profit of $54.7 million, up 4.8 percent from the $52.2 million from Q3 of last year.
The top five selling games for the retailer during the period, ending October 30, 2010, were Halo: Reach, Madden NFL 2011
, Fallout: New Vegas
, NBA 2K11
and Medal of Honor
reports that during an investor call earlier today, company president Tony Bartel noted there is strong demand for both Sony's Move
and Microsoft's Kinect
. The company is "excited" to see that the peripherals are currently in "very short supply" and that they are bringing in an "expanded audience." Company execs believe the two items are comparable to the Wii in terms of bringing a different set of customers to stores.
