In Gamestop’s latest financial briefing, which took place earlier today, the company’s Executive Vice President Mike Hogan said that he believes the Nintendo NX will be huge. According to conservative estimates, the company says the console could bring in at least $7.5 billion in revenue in the console’s first 26 months, which is roughly half of what the original Wii brought in.

Not much is known about the Nintendo NX, but the console is scheduled for launch next March. We will keep you updated as new information becomes available on the console.
EDIT: Although it seemed like Hogan was bullish on the NX’ prospects, the company’s stance on the console was a bit more neutral.
Seems lots of outlets already picking up on the NX/GameStop slide.
