A few days ago, SCEA boss Jack Tretton told Bloomberg that NGP might see delays in more than more region because of the Japanese earthquake disaster. But speaking to the Wall Street Journal, the company’s main branch in Japan has described those claims as false, stating the situation in Japan hasn’t affected NGP’s launch plans one bit.
SCEJ spokesperson Satoshi Fukuoaka told the publication that Tretton was simply “wrong” when he said the Japanese earthquake and tsunami had closed factories relating to Next Generation Portable production.
One person is telling the truth, and I smell it’s Tretton here. Of course Sony Japan is protecting its shares. I could be wrong though. Maybe Tretton made a mistake. What do you think?
