Apparently, the Sony PSP event , that ran alonside the CES show in Las Vegas, yesterday did not give off any new information. The SCEA CEO, Kaz Hirai, echoed SCE president Ken Kutaragi’s comment by saying that the PSP will “most likely” be released in late March 2005 in North America. He also mentioned that they plan to release the handheld in Europe during that month as well. Other than that, there was no pricing detail.
Following a demonstration of how to transfer video from a Sony Cybershot and then play it back on a PSP, a process that also appeared rather simple, Hirai declared, “Now on to games!” This statement cued a montage of more than a dozen games that will be released in the US, including Coded Arms, Twisted Metal: Head-On, Dynasty Warriors, Metal Gear Acid, Ape Escape PSP, Hot Shots! Golf PSP, Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower, Archer Maclean’s Mercury, NBA 2005, ATV Offroad Fury, Wipeout Pure, Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, and Ridge Racers.
