E3 2016 – GameStop expects ‘new console announcements’

There’s plenty of speculation about Xbox One Mini and PS4 Neo to certainly be more than hearsay, and now even GameStop expects multiple new consoles E3 2016.

During the company’s latest earnings briefing (via GameSpot), GameStop COO Tony Bartel said he expects multiple new console announcements during the show, as well as a clearer idea of the next six months of software.

“We expect E3 to focus on key titles in the back half of the year and console announcements,” he said. “We also expect VR to generate significant gaming consumer and press interest.”

It’s important to note that Bartel doesn’t explicitly state which consoles will be revealed at E3.
