News broke out earlier that French retailers have refused to stock the PSP Go, citing its lack of physical media as the primary reason. When independent retailers in the UK such as Chips and Grainger admit to not stocking the new handheld yet, the inclination is that this news is highly probable. SCEE, however, wasted no time in quashing the news.
No French retailers have refused to stock the Go, SCEE told VG247, adding that the story simply wasn't true."
Without UMD support, secondhand game sales, and a swear-inducing price tag to go with it, the PSP Go doesn't exactly sound like a retailer's dream come true. But whether or not the retailers will lend their support to a platform that may not benefit them remains to be seen.
