Aussie PSPgo sells 1,000 units in week one

Tuesday, 20th October 2009 15:36 GMT By Patrick Garratt


According to The Age, PSPgo managed to move only 1,000 units in Australia on its launch week.

Michael Ephraim, managing director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia, told the publication that first week sales were “not under 1000 but it’s slightly over 1000″ units.

“Clearly we haven’t done massive numbers but it’s not something that we’re concerned about … because there are still some issues that we need to work through,” added Ephraim.

    I was surprised to see that the new NPDs actually include two days of PSP Go sales. I guess they didn’t exactly hit the ground running in the US either.

    this is one of the few situations where replacing Australia with Austria would be favorable.

    Aussies always get the shitty end of the stick when it comes to pricing, anyone surprised that they wouldn’t be keen to pay even more for the same games?

    Nah, me either.

    Interesting. The link in your title goes to Chips. The ‘largest independant’ retailer who were recently very very vocal in their damning of PSPgo and of the supermarkets slashing FIFA10 prices. The guy mouthing off happened to be called Don McCabe.

    McCabe’s transparent bitching was tiresome when it was presented as legitimate news. Has it now devolved into making snarky comments on videogames news sites?

    well they could just use american PSN accounts…
    but you don’t need a Go for that, now do you?

    Would these issues be that existing PSP owners don’t want to abandon their UMD collection because Sony haven’t provided a transfer method?
