A Dutch retail chain called NedGame (Largest in their nation), along with retailers in Spain and Holland are arguing against the price of the PSP GO, and therefore refusing to sell the handheld.
The PSP Go was announced officially at E3 with an asking price of $250 (Which I KNOW I've talked about before as being rediculous), and that cost is even more outside of the U.S.
Now, let's think. The PS3 Slim which was announced recently will retail for $300. You're asking us to justify paying nearly the same price of a console as you would for a handheld. Not worth it.
They try to justify that though by having DL games that will range from as cheap as $1 to as much as a normal PSP game. And this brings about complaint two from retailers. The PSP GO does not have the UMD drive. Alot of retail stores make HUGE profit off of re-selling used games, and if people have PSP GO consoles, then they can't make that profit.
What's your view though?
