Sony: NGP this year, PlayStation Network restoration by end of May

Sony’s Next Generation Portable, or NGP, is on track for launch this year. During their earnings reporting briefing earlier today, the firm was quoted as saying the platform is still set to debut by the year’s end.

“Regarding NGP, we’re progressing with preparations towards a release at the end of the year,” read the report (via Phile-web).

PlayStation Network was also mentioned in the report. According to Sony, full restoration of both PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be complete by the end of the month for the regions outside of Japan. For Japan, Sony will have a partial restoration in the coming days.
