In an interview with US Gamer, GameStop CEO J. Paul Raines said that Pokemon Go has led to a significant increase in sales at certain GameStop stores. Raines said that “we did some family events and our sales were up 100%. Our Pokemon merchandise is up significantly across the board. So we’re very happy to see all this excitement around Pokemon in what is traditionally a slower time of the year for video gaming”. No surprised here, as those who are new to Pokemon because of GO would probably want some merch. What do you think ?
