Sony NGP release date and price leaks in the US

Release date and pricing information for the recently announced Sony NGP, formerly the PSP 2, has leaked with the portable console surprisingly set to hit the US next year.

Leaked via a snapshot of an internal database screen from retailer GameStop the emerging information, if accurate, would see the pocket-friendly Sony NGP hitting US stores on January 1st 2012 with a $299.99 price tag.

We must stress that these details should be taken with a hefty pinch of salt with a post-Christmas January 1st release date appearing more of a placeholder than a confirmed, and very unusual, arrival time. With Sony having previously confirmed that the NGP will come with an affordable price tag, the sub-$300 marker given to the upcoming device seems to suggest this.

Officially announced late last month the Sony NGP is set to reinvigorate the stoic PSP with a tantalising selection of new features and credentials that will include a 5-inch 960 x 544p OLED touchscreen display, touch-sensitive back, dual analogue sticks, cameras both front and back, a chip which Sony says is the most advanced available and the connection selection of 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi options.

Information on a UK arrival time or pricing is still unknown.

Would you be tempted into buying a Sony NGP if it hit the UK on New Years day or would the post-Christmas money constraints put you off? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
