New PlayStation, Xbox One Are Coming, and GameStop Wins

GameStop, having survived a brutal nine quarters without much in the way of new video game products on aging platforms, is about to power up on two new video game consoles and two major releases from popular franchises.

The Texas-based retailer expects a major boost from the fourth iteration of Sony’s PlayStation, due in mid-November, and Microsoft’s new Xbox One, expected to hit shelves around the same time. Before the next-generation devices arrive, there’s likely to be a final retail hurrah for new games on the old machines as the hit franchises Grand Theft Auto 5 and Battlefield 4 hit the shelves over the next two months.
