Dutch Retailer Refuses To Sell PSPgo

According to a report on Eurogamer, Dutch chain Nedgame—the country's largest specialist games retailer—are refusing to stock Sony's PSPgo.

Why?

Nedgame (and, apparently, other retailers in Holland and Spain) aren't happy with the console's price, believing it to be too expensive to bother stocking. A beef, then, but not their main beef.

No, their t-bone is the system's lack of a UMD drive, which they feel robs the store of their main source of income; namely, the mark-up on game prices. With PSPgo games bought directly from Sony via the PSN, and the console more expensive than the existing one, it's not hard to see their point.

    -grins an evil grin-
    it has begun
    muhahaha

    If they are anything like GameSpot, they are not upset about not being able to sell new UMD's, they are more upset about not being able to continuously re-selling used UMD's they get from trade-in offers offered on most new purchases.

    Or they want some publicity. They ain't gonna lose money buy selling it. They'll make there money back.

    Its the consumers who should be standing up against Sony by NOT buying it. Not stocking or selling it is just stupid.

    LAME!
