With the Nintendo 3DS rolling out in Europe and North America in the next few weeks, it’s almost time to start looking at the next big upcoming handheld, the NGP. And while Sony a bit hesitant on talking about the release world wide, they did confirm that the platform will be launching in at least one region in 2011. That region is Japan with a Q4 2011 release date.
But it looks like more than one region may be hit with the NGP this year. According to an inside source who whispered their hearings to MCV, the platform is due for a European launch this November. According to the source, Sony is telling third parties to start wrapping up development by the end of the Summer, so they can be ready for the release.
We had previously heard a rumor that Sony was gearing up for a Holiday launch in Europe, and this seems to line up with that rumor quite well. Hopefully at E3 we will get some solid details.
