GameStop Gets 75% of New Sales Revenue from Five Companies

In its annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, spotted by GameSpot, GameStop's sales figures reveal that the video game retail chain gets 75% of its revenue on new hardware and software sales from five companies. GameStop purchases products from around 75 companies.

Nintendo accounts for the most new sales at 23%. Following Nintendo are Sony (17%), Microsoft (12%), Electronic Arts (12%) and Activision (11%).

The next five companies on the list account for another 10%, leaving the remaining 65 companies fighting over the last 15%. If anything were to happen to any of the top 5, GameStop (and likely all game retailers) would take a large hit.

GameStop also has a lucrative used hardware and software business.
