Sony's next portable console, codenamed the NGP, could have its release delayed in some regions around the world due to the earthquake that hit Japan in March.

The news was delivered by the President of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, Jack Tretton. He stated that the disaster has meant that electronic shipments have been delayed and it's lead to production problems.

Analysts have already started with the gloom talk, with Wedbush Securities' Edward Woo saying "As it is now, it's already going to be almost eight months behind Nintendo, and a delay could push that to a year and delivery when the iPad 3 may be coming out."
