GameStop No Longer Selling PSP Games In 25% Of U.S. Stores

Gaming retailer GameStop is cutting down on its inventory, removing PSP games from a quarter of its stores, Kotaku has learned.

"The consolidation is occurring to maximize the merchandising space in the smallest 25% of stores," a GameStop representative told Kotaku. "It will also provide a greater assortment in those stores that will continue to carry the category."

This may be one sign that the aging (and underperforming) PSP is on its way out in North America. Sony released the handheld's successor, PlayStation Vita, this February.

GameStop will continue to sell PSP games at its bigger locations and on its website, GameStop.com.
