Sony to release handheld game player

The living-room games leader turns its gaze to the portables market with the planned launch of the PSP, a handheld game player capable of 3D images.

Sony did not offer a projected price for the PSP, but said it plans to release the device late next year, with Ken Kutaragi, president of Sony Computer Entertainment, promising it would be “the Walkman of the 21st century.”
