GAME won't stock Ubisoft Vita launch games

Lumines, Michael Jackson, Rayman: Origins, Asphalt Injection and Dungeon Hunter Alliance get the chop.

GAME has confirmed it will not stock Ubisoft's Vita launch games.

Lumines, Michael Jackson, Rayman Origins, Asphalt Injection and Dungeon Hunter Alliance will not be available to buy from GAME stores across the nation when Sony's PSP successor launches at midnight tonight.

"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," GAME said in a statement issued to VG247.

Vita launch titles from other publishers, including EA, Capcom and Sega, are safe, however, and will be sold in GAME stores.

News of the cancellation of Ubisoft's Vita launch titles only adds to the current troubles afflicting the specialist retailer.

Last week Eurogamer broke the news that GAME would not stock Nintendo 3DS game Tekken 3D Prime Edition.

GAME is currently working with publishers on a title-by-title basis following its loss of credit insurance with the banks last month.
