New 'Smash Bros.' fastest selling Switch game so far, Gamesindustry.biz says

Nintendo's latest Switch game "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" has broken records to become this week's number 1 U.K. boxed game, Gamesindustry.biz reports. The game is the fastest-selling Switch title so far, eclipsing the recent combined launch sales of "Pokemon Let's Go!," the report says. In addition, the new "Smash Bros." game's launch sales are 302% higher than the numbers achieved by "Super Smash Bros. for Wii U" and 233% higher than "Super Smash Bros. for 3DS," the last two games in the series, the report says.

Sony appeared to be video game hardware winner on Black Friday, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter notes that each of the four game retailers he tracked, namely Best Buy (BBY), GameStop (GME), Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) offered the Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Bundle that included a slim PS4 with a 1TB hard drive and Sony's (SNE) Marvel's Spider-Man for $199.99, as well as the Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox One S Minecraft Creators Bundle that included an Xbox One S with a 1TB hard drive, a Minecraft full game download, the Starter Pack, the Creators Pack, and 1,000 Minecoins for $199.99. Nintendo's (NTDOY) primary hardware offering was less compelling given that it was priced at the console's standard MSRP, he adds. The only sell-out that the analyst saw over Black Friday was the primary PS4 deal. Pachter expects the Black Friday deals to eventually translate into permanent price cuts for the base PS4 and Xbox One, possibly by this Christmas.

GameStop strong hardware sales offset pre-owned and software decline, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian kept his Outperform rating and $14 price target on GameStop (GME) after its "in-line" Q2 results, where "strong new hardware sales and improving Tech Brands segment profitability" offset the declines in the pre-owned and software segments. The analyst adds that the revenue beat was driven by the ongoing demand for Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch and Xbox One consoles, while noting that the comps decline of -0.5% was better than the expected -3.7% decrease.

Nvidia can selloff near-term on graphics commentary, says Citi
Citi analyst Atif Malik says his recent supply chain checks indicate discrete graphics gaming demand is expected to remain sluggish thru the September quarter due to a "sharp decline" in mining related demand on falling cryptocurrency prices, channel distributors and partners waiting for Nvidia's (NVDA) new Turing gaming card launch in the October quarter, and weak gaming console sales at Microsoft (MSFT) offset by the Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch. The analyst lowered his July and October quarter estimates for Nvidia to bring them in-line with consensus. He thinks the stock can selloff in the near-term on weaker than expected graphics commentary from TSMC (TSM), who reports on July 19, and AMD (AMD), who reports on July 25. Malik, however, keeps a Buy rating on Nvidia with a $300 price target. He believes his long-term thesis on the shares remains intact.
