Gamestop's COO Tony Bartel has hinted that the rumoured console launches seem imminent. More news is expected at E3 this summer.

GameStop COO Tony Bartel told those at the company's Investor Day Briefings that the company knows more about rumoured console launches than it can say.

However, he hinted that some new consoles could be launched in the very near future. He said, "We are very pleased to see the introduction of technology like virtual reality and rumoured new console launches, some of which seem imminent."

He was asked about the Nintendo NX and other consoles, but simply said, "As usual, we know more than we can share." He added that announcements will come from the platform holders themselves. E3 is the most likely time for an announcement to be made.

Nintendo could be preparing for an announcement of the NX console, while Microsoft and Sony are being tipped to announce updates to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
