Report: PSPgo Flops In Australia

The PSPgo has been a sales flop in Australia, according to official GfK sales figures showing Sony’s new handheld had sold fewer than 1000 units in its first week.

Industry sales tracker GfK doesn’t make sales figures public, but the Sydney Morning Herald has obtained the first week stats. Its anonymous source claims that “Sony had sold fewer than 1000 units of the PSP Go in Australia during its first full week of launch.”

Sony did not deny the claim, however Sony Computer Entertainment Australia boss Michael Ephraim did say the PSPgo had in fact sold “slightly over 1000” units.

The PSPgo has struggled under the weight of a high recommended retail price and a lack of support from retailers, most notably the refusal of EB Games, Australia’s largest games retailer, to stock the handheld at all.
