Dutch retailer won't carry Sony's PSP Go

Dutch retailer Nedgame has informed its customers that it will not stock Sony's upcoming PSP Go portable gaming system. The nine-store chain says it doesn't agree with Sony's sales strategy of only offering downloadable games, giving the manufactures a monopoly on game sales, as the PSP Go lacks a UMD drive. Another reason for Nedgame's decision is the high cost of the device compared to the existing PSP-3000, as it costs the equivalent of $365 to the PSP-3000's $248.

Nedgame feels its customers will realize the 'poor value' offered by the new system, with the downloaded games will be worthless when users want to sell their device, or trade in games, as is commonly done in video game stores. Trading games or lending them to friends is also impossible with the download model.

The PSP Go is scheduled to launch worldwide in October. [via Reghardware]
