Nedgame Won't Sell PSP Go


We know what you’re thinking… You wouldn’t want to sell an overpriced, UMD drive-less PSP at your business either.


Oh, you were thinking what the hell is Nedgame? That’s a fair question too. They are, in their terms, Holland’s “largest specialized retail outlet,” which must mean they’re big on gaming.

However, their stance on the latest PSP is less than enthusiastic. Since profits on the hardware are minimal at best for stores, they can’t make up the difference in software sales, leading to their boycott since the PS Go is download only. Good for them, and hopefully more retailers and gamers begin making a stand against downloadable-only gaming.
