NGP still releasing this year - Sony

No fresh details on which territories will get the new portable first though

Sony has confirmed that NGP is still on track for release this year.

According to audio site Phile-web (via Andriasang), the company said on an earnings call today: "Regarding NGP, we're progressing with preparations towards a release at the end of the year."

There wasn't any fresh information on which territories will get the portable first, or whether it'll receive a global launch this year.


Sony has sent out some mixed messages about NGP's release so far, with PlayStation US boss Jack Tretton claiming it could be delayed because of Japan's earthquake disaster, before the company backtracked on his statements.

We expect to hear a lot more about NGP at E3 in a couple of weeks.
