Independent UK retailer boss expects PSP Go to 'fail miserably'

The managing director of Chips, the UK's largest independent game store chain, doesn't see a bright future for Sony's new PSP Go. In fact, during a little pow-wow with, Don McCabe said, "I'm 99.9 per cent sure it's going to fail miserably, in which case it's going to put back other potential people coming into that digital space." Wow, that's a lot of certainty!

McCabe doesn't point to any one thing about the new handheld as a deterrent for potential customers (examples: price; no UMD; crazy cable accessories), but seems adamant that the system isn't destined to "go anywhere." Of course, this comes in stark contrast to Sony's opinion that PSP Go sales are meeting expectations. If both end up being correct, those must have been some weirdly low expectations.
