Store spokesperson did not disclose reasons for pulling titles

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.
