NGP still on track for a 2011 release

You gotta love rumors and executive squabble, especially when it’s concerning a high-profile handheld gaming device such as Sony’s NGP. We reported a short while back that the Sony NGP was slated for a release by the end of this year. Sony’s Jack Tretton said it could be delayed due to supply constraints caused by the recent Japanese earthquake, but then Sony Japan refuted it. Gamers were left in a pool of confusion, wondering what the heck is actually going on. Aside from knowing that Sony will dish out the full details on the NGP at E3 in June, an analyst from Lazard Capital Markets who recently attended a Sony conference says the NGP is still on track to be released this year in the US. Launches in the UK and Europe are still murky. The LCM’s report goes on to say that there is also concern on the NGP’s potential high price limiting market opportunity. That’s without a question. The original PSP launched at a hefty $250 and the NGP’s specs are leaps and bounds beyond that device. How much do you think Sony’s going to charge for the NGP? What’s the most you’re willing to pay for an NGP? Leave a comment down below.
