Dutch retailer refuses to stock PSP go

Large Dutch retailer Nedgame won’t be stocking PSP go this October, the chain’s told EG.nl.

Why? Two reasons. Firstly, it sees the €249.99 price tag – €80 more than the current PSP-3000 – as too steep. Secondly, the fact the console doesn’t use physical media means it won’t be able to sell any games for it. And selling games is how games shops make money.

A similar story relating to French retailers did the rounds recently, but SCEE poo-pooed it.

PSP go releases on October 1. Thanks, EG.
