    Game: Not stocking Ubisoft Vita games

    UK retailer GAME will not be selling any of Ubisoft’s PlayStation Vita launch titles.Although it has not confirmed the reason, it is presumed that it is down to ongoing negotiations with individual suppliers regarding GAME’s troubled credit insurance status.
    At the moment GAME is having to strike deals with publishers for individual titles with special conditions often attached to each agreement. Most recently this saw Namco Bandai title Tekken 3DS missing from GAME upon its release last Friday.
    “At this time we will not be selling the following Ubisoft titles; Lumines Electronic Symphony, Michael Jackson: The Experience, Rayman Origins, Asphalt Injection and Dungeon Hunter Alliance,” a spokesperson told VG247.
    “All customers affected by this decision have been made aware of the situation and we will continue to communicate any updates to customers through our Twitter and Facebook feeds.”
    The news is a big blow for both GAME and Ubisoft. With the Vita launch kicking off at midnight tonight, GAME’s potential Vita customer base will take a big knock with so many key launch titles missing from their shelves.
    In addition, Ubisoft faces the prospect of its Vita launch line-up MIA from the UK’s biggest High Street games retailer, meaning it will miss out on crucial sales.

    Other than Rayman and Lumine, they're not missing much, honestly
    Anyway, it sucks for Ubisoft and those looking forward to their games.

    Maybe its different in Australia, but I work at a GAME and we are stocking those games... minus MJ: The Experience for reasons I'm not too sure on.


    EDIT: Unless its because the ones we have in stock are pre-orders, otherwise we don't get them? I'm not sure I'm only a casual

    That's why it said "UK" retailer

    Besides, I am glad - Game are so expensive, easily one of the most expensive on the high street.

    I read it's because it's well known they are in trouble and can't afford to pay the suppliers.

    I know man, but most things like this and exec decisions carry over to us anyway. So yeah, I'll wait and find out tomorrow!

    Bricks and mortar game shops are very rarely profitable. They get out priced by supermarkets and online.

    Not selling Rayman Origins or Lumines is not good! Their deals weren't that great anyway for the vita which I found surprising as I always buy from them.
