Based on GameStop’s latest sales report, it looks like Santa’s nice list was filled with gamers! During the 2013 holiday season, GameStop raked in $3.15 billion, up 9.3% from 2012. Hardware sales nearly doubled, mostly due to the launch of the Xbox One and PS4. The popular retailer also saw an increase in pre-owned games, digital revenue, and mobile sales of 7%, 14.9% and 23.8% respectively. GameStop experienced a 22.5% decline in new software for the Xbox 360 and Ps3, which was “greater than expected.”

CEO Paul Raines, pleased with the company’s success,  is ready to take on 2014 saying:

“Building off this momentum, we are in an excellent position to drive the global adoption of the next generation of new video game products in 2014.”
