Dutch retailer refuses to stock PSPgo
No software sales and high price upset specialist game stores in region
Dutch retailer Nedgame has refused to stock and sell the PSPgo because of its high price and lack of retail games.
According to a statement published on its website, the company is unhappy that without a UMD drive it is not able to sell software for the download-only console, cutting out any second hand sales opportunities.
It also has issues with the high price of the new console – which retails in the region for EUR 249, compared to the PSP-3000's price point of EUR 169.
Nedgame also noted a discomfort with Sony creating a monopoly on the pricing of games for the system.
The PSPgo launches across Europe in October, with early adoptors able to download a free copy of Gran Turismo PSP.
