So much for all the announcements by Gamestop about high sales of Nintendo Switch being dismissed by some as "bullsh*t PR".  That "PR" and so-called "spin" has been backed up by Gamestop's quarterly earnings report.

"Nintendo Switch remains sold out virtually everywhere, and no one has sold more than GameStop. The retailer today reported its earnings for the quarter that ended on July 29, 2017, and it was a period that saw the company receive a notable boost from sales of Nintendo's latest console.

GameStop had "leading market share" for Nintendo Switch during the period, beating out competitors like Amazon and Walmart. As a result, new hardware sales were up 14.8% year-over-year, which is notable given declining prices of the PS4 and Xbox One."
