An unnamed Konami executive has spoken to Business Journal about the sales of PC Engine Mini in Japan.
According to this unnamed Konami executive, pre-orders for the PC Engine Mini are currently faring very badly on Amazon Japan. Amazon Japan is the only retailer that’s carrying stock for this, as part of an exclusive deal between Konami and Amazon Japan. The reason behind this is to prevent price cuts by brick-and-mortar retailers.
The lack of price cuts and Amazon’s exclusivity for the PC Engine Mini could have also contributed to the lukewarm sales.
The Konami executive added that due to the poor sales, they will “definitely” distribute to brick-and-mortar retailers in Japan in the near future.
