Gamestop: We're "excited" for PSPgo


Executive Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing at GameStop US, Tony Bartel, has said the retailer is very "excited" for the impending release of the PSPgo on October 1 in the US.

Speaking in the company's financial call for the quarter of Q2 09, Bartel said that they were excited even more to be selling the new PSP model.

"On the PSPgo, we are excited to be carrying that for a couple reasons. We do participate in the downstream revenue via both POSA (point of sale activation) cards and through points cards," said the GS exec.

"We are very excited about selling the PSPgo. We are very excited to be reserving it; reserves are picking. And we have a very clear roadmap as to how we can drive profitability on the sale of games."

In case you can't tell, he says "excited" quite a fair bit.
