SCEA’s Jack Trenton recently told us that the launch of the NGP may be effected by the earthquake that happened last month in Japan. SonyJapan doesn’t want you thinking that. According to Sony, Jack Trenton’s statement was “wrong.” “So far we see no impact from the quake on our launch plan,” a Sony representative said to Wall Street Journal. Despite Trenton’s comments, Sony also said they never promised a simultaneous launch.
The only hints we’ve seen for a release so far is a rumor floating around that the platform is set for a November 2011 release in Europe.
