After AMD supposed that there will be a launch of a new console in the latter half of this year, GameStop has joined the fray and is claiming that a launch is “imminent.” At the company’s investor meeting earlier this week, GameStop COO Tony Bartel had some strong words about the situation.

Although we have not modeled extensive growth for new innovation in this presentation, we are very pleased to see the introduction of technology like virtual reality and rumoured new console launches, some of which seem imminent.”

GameStop refused to comment on exactly what console they were possibly referring to, or how many, but there are only so many choices. This does not spell “success” when looking at the current console generation, which some believe to be stagnant and more of the same as last generation, mired with a multitude of so many remakes and remasters. Only time will tell until E3 arrives, but all the rumors point to the NX being revealed and possibly being released this year.
