    Gamestop Pulling PSP Games From Store

    GameStop is looking to free up some space in their stores. The American retailer has decided to pull PlayStation Portable games from a quarter of its stores in the United States.

    They're not just tossing all these games into the incinerator, though. A GameStop rep speaking with Kotaku characterized the move as "consolidation." In other words, they're taking the PSP games from one quarter of their smallest stores and putting them in the other three-quarters. GameStop mentions that that the stores that still carry PSP games will have a greater assortment of titles as a result of this move.

    Some of the games will no doubt end up in the company's warehouses, too. GameStop plans to continue to sell PSP games through its website. If you're not near a location still selling PSP games, you can purchase select full games through PSN as well if you've storage space to spare.

    GameStop's decision is just the latest sign that the PSP's days are coming to an end. The handheld's days were essentially numbered once Sony released its successor, the PlayStation Vita, earlier this year. The PSP's sales have been slowing long before the Vita's launch, though. It doesn't look like it has the staying power of the PS2.

    Even if the PSP were still selling okay, it's the low man on the totem pole. GameStop's going to need room for the Vita's expanding library, as well as the upcoming launch of the Wii U. They don't have infinite space in their stores so some system had to take a hit. Perhaps the PSP will disappear from stores altogether once the successors to the Xbox 360 and PS3 arrive in a year or two.

    well i guess its understandable since the vita doesn't have BC physically but it would suck for the people who still have psp's..i still do

    I have 2 PSPs but it doesn't bother me because we don't have a GS anyway, but you've still got amazon/ebay like for PS1 games though. Even so, I'm buying all my PSP games from PSN now and will be doing so for Vita when I get one.

    I got a PSP as well and same as Aaron, we don't have GS here either.

    But this doesn't surprise me since the PSP isn't very popular in the West, contrary to Japan.

    yep, I work at a GAME in Australia and we haven't taken trade ins for PSP games since the Vita came out, and we don't get any new stock at all for the new games (not that there is any new ones coming out/recently released)

    As specialty stores its just what we have to do, keep up with the times.

    Also I'll note that at that same time we got rid of all out PS2 games as well. This is just what happens. Of course the PSP will disappear from stores altogether soon its just what happens with old technology
