08:31 EDTGME, MSFT, SNEGameStop reports holiday sales period SSS up 10.2%
Total global sales for the period were $3.15B, a 9.3% increase compared to the 2012 holiday sales period. Total comparable store sales increased 10.2%, with U.S. comps of +7.1% and international comps of +17.4%. Comparable store sales were driven by new video game console sales as demonstrated by the 99.8% increase in new hardware sales. During this transitional console period, strong sales of next generation software were offset by a greater than expected decline in Xbox 360 (MSFT) and PS3 (SNE) software sales resulting in a 22.5% decline in the new software category. The pre-owned category increased 7.0%, driven by a stronger in-stock position and by the sale of value-priced previous generation consoles. Gross margins for the pre-owned category are expected to range from 46% to 49% for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year.
