GAME will not stock Ubisoft PlayStation Vita launch titles tonight, VG247 has learnt.

UK retailer GAME has confirmed to VG247 that it will not stock Ubisoft’s Vita launch titles tonight.

“At this time we will not be selling the following Ubisoft titles; Lumines Electronic Symphony, Michael Jackson: The Experience, Rayman Origins, Asphalt Injection and Dungeon Hunter Alliance,” the chain said in a statement.

“All customers affected by this decision have been made aware of the situation and we will continue to communicate any updates to customers through our Twitter and Facebook feeds.”

A rep couldn’t confirm a specific reason for not stocking the games. Vita titles from Sony, EA, Codemasters, Namco Bandai, Capcom and Sega will be available in GAME stores from midnight.

Ubisoft has declined to comment on the matter.

Concerns regarding GAME were raised after recent troubles with its ability to raise credit insurance and acquire new stock.

In the wake of the revelation, GAME said it may sell its international arm.

PlayStation Vita launches in the US and Europe at midnight tonight.
