The NGP, Sony's successor to the PSP handheld console, is to launch in "at least one territory by the end of holiday 2011" according to SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton - but it's "very difficult" to launch worldwide on the same date.
Its for things like this that I wish I lived in Japan
Yeah, this is bullsht. Sony are close to 20 years industry experience and they still can't release something worldwide at the same time? Come on now, this is getting ridiculous. I understand if they can't release it to every country out there but they should at least get the most important ones ready by release.
You speak as if you know what you're talking about.
what are the most important countries? if you dont mind me asking, you really sound ignorant
@liltitan Well the most important sales wise; USA, UK, Germany, France, Japan.. Spain has also been a big PSP supporter. I don't get why, after 20 years (almost) in to the industry, Sony can't be more prepared for worldwide hardware launches. They have the experience. Do i speak for myself when i say, i don't want to wait that long til NGP gets released? Or are those who disagreed thinking i'm dissing Sony by wanting one of their products sooner than launch? lmao =D
Yep US release early 2012 most likely I'd say.
fall 2011 in japan february 2012 rest of the world That's what I think.
yea, i think it'll just be a month maybe in between releases, if that, it's not gonna be a 5 or 6 month difference, that just sounds dumb, it's not the '90s anymore lol seems so long ago
Im Cravinf For The PSP2 Off Topic:Can Someone report This PSN TO SONY Purp_inf3ction, His on My friendlist and he got costume Firmware 3.56
I'll get right on that! pffff
Do it yourself, too lazy?
IDK hOw To. Mr Tretton Give me a Word When u Do it.
Looks like I'll be importing, but I'm worried that half of the features won't work because of regional locks. ='/
If only pirates didnt exist eh? naaah, into the next LOL
why not just wait a few extra months and get one you know will work from your own region? -_- common sense xD
Because that's the problem..waiting those extra months for something I could have right away, no thanks.
While the psp2 is released in japan in 2011 (We dont know if its region locked) the 3ds sells 15+million in 2011 just sayin. I will be getting both eventualy @ below........... what you say is what everyone has said against nintendo in portables. The truth is with a lower price, a head start, and basically the same third parties making games for this system plus the first party stuff, plus million seller launch titles in the states and japan its not even fair.
LOL, by the time NGP goes nut over xmas, I expect this to u ndertake 3DS for around 10 millions to 20...looking at how hot the handheld market for the portable gaming is...only games gonna save NGP to fail, and looking how things are shaping up with all these studios behind the scene, I don't think the upper hand the 3DS is having gonna make it the winner. Also, who the fuck care about sales?...bring me games for fck sake.
I'll be expecting a release date by 2013-14 in where i live.
Sucks to be you.
Not really lol
Yeah I heard they would be coming out in antarctica in 2015 , sucks 4 you :) xD
Ehh, probably Japan.
Guess the Europe is out of the question for '11. Oh well, one can dream...
why Sony why?!?! You guys should know by now it would sell like crazy BY LAUNCHING IT ON ALL TERRITORIES. I can't wait till next year, damn
