Report: GameStop Dropping PSP From 25% Of Its Stores
Sony is trying to push the PlayStation Vita hard and as a result, the new portable's predecessor might disappear faster than anticipated.
According to a Kotaku report, GameStop will be removing PSP games from one-quarter of its stores.
This will occur at the retailer's smallest stores, in order to "maximize the merchandising space," although a GameStop representative made it plain that the remaining locations will "provide a great assortment" of PSP titles. You'll also still be able to find games for Sony's first handheld device at GameStop.com, so feel free to stock up if you've neglected your PSP library. Of course, not a heck of a lot of games released over the past year; Sony was obviously looking forward to the Vita.
After a few really solid years, the PSP has tailed off and this reduction of inventory at GameStop is a clear sign that it is no longer a big seller. Besides, might as well use that extra space for Vita stuff, right?
