PSP Delayed in Europe
A significant postponement for the much anticipated handheld
Originally scheduled for release later this month, the Sony PSP has now been delayed in Europe for an extended "several months". This is an unfortunate event for the company as the system's primary competitor, the Nintendo DS, was released in Europe last Friday and will now have a much more significant head start in sales.
Chief of Sony Computer Entertainment France, Georges Fornay, confirmed the unit's delay today. The reason behind the release's substantial postponement was so that Sony could adequately provide enough PSPs to satisfy the consumer demand.
North Americans need not worry, however, as Sony has promised one million PSPs available for its US launch next week.
