Retailers aren’t too fond of the PSP Go, and with good reason. After all, who needs crummy old brick-and-mortar when every game you could ever want lies at your fingertips? Joystiq cornered Sony with this pressing issue, and – shockingly enough – got a response.

Sony of America’s keeping retailers in its corner with a series of PSP “Game Cards,” which consist of download codes and – enticingly enough – some very revealing packaging. Yeah, Sony knows how we like it. Apparently, the cards are already in stores, with games like God of War: Chains of Olympus and Gran Turismo Portable representing the initial volley.

As for Sony of Europe, well, game cards aren’t in the, er, cards. For now, anyway.

“We don’t have any plans for vouchers/gift cards like this,” Sony of Europe said. “At the moment we are only selling the PSN vouchers of £20 and £50 for the UK.”
