AUSTRALIA: EB Games to not stock PSPgo?

EB Games in Australia will not be stocking PSPgo consoles, Kotaku is reporting.

The website has contacted EB stores across the country, and each one confirming that the machine is not on their system.

The format has been controversial for retail due to its digital-only model, which means stores are unable to sell games to accompany the machine.

A Sony Australia spokesperson told Kotaku: In relation to our business and the launch of PSPgo, we are already experiencing solid support for launch day on October 1 in Australia. Retail support of the PSP platform, includes both PSP-3000 and PSPgo. Many retailers will choose to range both PSP models side-by-side, as we continue to offer expanded choice for the consumer for the handheld device platform. As with any new product, there will be continued discussions with retail partners to continue to expand reach over time in line with growth of the entire PSP platform.

"SCE are also committed to delivering more PSP content including strong IPs like Gran Turismo and LittleBigPlanet this year, plus increased networked services and applications for the platform such as the Digital Reader service which will launch with Digital Comics this December. In 2010 users will also be able to enjoy access to a Video Delivery Service.”
