The launch of Sony’s new portable gaming system, the Next Generation Portable (or NGP), might see a delay thanks to the recent earthquake and tsunami disaster in Tohoku, Japan. Speaking with Bloomberg, Sony Computer Entertainment America president Jack Tretton said the portable may only launch in one region in time for this year’s holiday season.
“It may be the straw that says ‘maybe we get to just one market by the end of the year,’” Tretton told the site. A delayed launch may give developers more time to create games for the platform, he said.
Unfortunately, Tretton remained mum on which region might get NGP first.
