Store GameStop expands its product catalog to include PC gaming products such as GeForce’s graphics cards and RTX 3000 Series laptops.
GameStop CEO George Sherman said in an earnings interview on Tuesday (reported by PC Mag) that the company is increasing its inventory to meet consumer needs. “This includes expanding our product offering on PC games, computers, monitors, gaming tables, mobile games and gaming TVs to name a few,” said Sherman.
The company also released a new ad highlighting various hardware for sale, including GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs, mini tower cases and motherboards. Many of the products already appear in the search results on the GameStop website, but some are shipped to the US only, others are not available, and some do not arrive until April 1
GameStop also launched one dedicated PC game page, which will sell desktops, laptops, virtual reality headsets and accessories such as lights and speakers. The company has not specified whether this sale will take place online or in-store, although Sherman said GameStop will invest more in its e-commerce.
“Global e-commerce increased 175% and represented 34% of total sales in the fourth quarter against 12% of net sales in the previous period,” said Sherman.
GameStop made headlines when Executive Vice President Frank Hamlin announced that he was withdrawing in the middle of the company’s share price. The company also expects board members, including former Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime, to retire as part of the 2021 annual meeting later this year.
