Sorry, Mr. Major UK games retailer; the verdict’s in on the PSPgo, and – after a bit of our trademark expert analysis – we’ve ascertained that a “300 percent sales increase” doesn’t quite qualify as a miserable failure.

Speaking with Kotaku, Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications and Social Media for SCEA, said that Sony’s “top retail partners” have enjoyed a 300 percent lift in PSP sales since the PSPgo released.

Seybold also mentioned a “significant increase in revenue for PlayStation Network, driven by a 200 percent lift in PSP game downloads purchased from PlayStation Store.”
