GameStop Apparently Already Has the PS4, and "Knowledge" of the New Xbox

The video game retail industry is dominated by GameStop, so it comes as know surprise that the retail giant has got the inside scoop on one of the consoles coming out this year.

On a financial call, GameStop President, Tony Bartlet, was questioned about the company’s plans and expectations for 2014, which they’ve been very hush-hush about, to which he responded:

“The problem is that we just – we have one console [PlayStation 4], and we have some knowledge that we can share, more knowledge that we can’t. We also have knowledge of the second console, but I’d rather that, that be out in the public before we discuss our digital goals for 2014.”

Bartlet also teased the fact that though they do have information, he wanted to withhold it until it became public knowledge.

GameStop’s CFO, Robert Lloyd, emphasized though that the company has no idea when Microsoft plans to launch the new Xbox.

“We are making broad assumptions about launches within the guidance, as we do not have launch date information for quantities, prices or available software.”

GameStop VP, Mike Hogan, went ahead to say that the PlayStation 4 will be launching globally by the end of 2013.

For once, it looks like someone’s playing their cards close to their chest, but one thing we do know in this industry is that word gets around, so we’ll keep our eyes and ears open as we release the internet hounds.
