Sony denies PSP 2 setback
NGP will roll out this year, firm insists
Sony's successor to the PSP, the "Next Generation Portable" (NGP), will not be delayed by the Japanese earthquake and should be rolled out in all regions by the end of the year.
Earlier this week, we were told by Sony Computer Entertainment America head Jack Tretton that, due to the disaster in Japan, several manufacturing plants were running behind schedule, delaying production of the NGP and pushing its release back into 2012.
Last night, that claim was disputed by a Sony spokesman in Japan. "So far we see no impact from the quake on our launch plan," said Satoshi Fukuoka, who called the Bloomberg news report "wrong", Nikkei reports.
He did mention however that when Sony unveiled the NGP in January, the company never said it would launch the device in all three regions at once. ®
Remember its not yours
It belongs to Sony and they will do whatever they want with it.
Whereas you can only do what they tell you you can do.
More likely they were revoking the keys that were "discovered" in the PS3 for the PSP1.
I would say its a fair assumption that the PSP2 and the PS3 will link in much the same way...
Lots going on
This story changes by the minute with various bits of Sony saying one thing and other, looks like its back on now, with a big official unveiling of the name and price at e3.
