PSP 2: Sony NGP coming to Europe November 11th?

Next-gen Sony handheld in shops for Christmas?

Sony gear up for pre-Christmas Next Generation Portable launch in Europe.

Gaming fans with long car journeys to wile away may not have (too much) longer to wait for the next generation PSP, the NGP (Next Generation Portable), with rumours surfacing today that Sony's answer to the Nintendo 3DS may hit European shores on November 11th.

The rumoured pre-holidays release date comes courtesy of sources over at MCV, who report that Sony is planning to release the NGP simultaneously in all markets, despite previous speculation that only Japan would be seeing the device in time for Christmas.

With a spacious 5-inch OLED touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls on the back and a processor Sony is claiming is the most advanced available, the NGP is looking like a strong competitor to Nintendo's glasses-free 3D handheld, the Nintendo 3DS, which will be released on March 25th.
