Sony Japan pulled Wall Street Journal aside from their busy schedule in order to debunk earlier reports that did suggest Japan’s recent earthquake as being the cause of delay for the NGP (Next Generation Portable)’s release in selected territories, while comments spewed forth by SCEA president Jack Tretton were outright “wrong.” According to Sony’s representative, Satoshi Fukuoka, the company expects “no impact from the quake on our launch plan,” and that the NGP is slated to arrive later this year on schedule across different territories. After all, Sony had never mentioned that tehy would be holding a simultaneous launch in Asia, North America and Europe, so there’s that. Of course, Sony has left a back door for themselves in case the unexpected happens by claiming that they will monitor the situation in the earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged region and make changes to their release plans if and when the need arises.
