PSP Delayed

Sony delays launch of PSP

Sony has informed publishers, developers and retailers that while it still plans to launch its handheld gaming and entertainment device in Japan this holiday season, the PSP will not hit shelves in North America or Europe until calendar year 2005.

More specifically, it should be out by March 2005.

This changes things a bit…the Nintendo DS handheld will be the only new hardware on the market for the Christmas ’04 season (unless Phantom actually ships, of course).
