* PSP Delayed?

Mobile gaming (GBA/etc)
Gamespot's got an article saying that the PSP may be delayed until next year.

Key issues: weak title lineup, and battery power consumption.

Meanwhile, Piper Jaffray & Co. paints an even gloomier picture for the PSP's launch ambitions. In a report released today, the securities firm expects the handheld "to launch later than the current March 2005 expectation. First, Sony is usually late with most product introductions?and we are hearing that the platform has other issues such as thermal problems (transistors are running very hot) and a very short battery life (90 minutes) that will almost certainly delay the launch." All this points to a November 2005 launch in the US (possibly alongside the next Xbox system), the report concludes.
Ouch. If true, it sucks to be Sony right now.

Though I'm not planning to buy the PSP anyways; the fact that it won't use standard size CD's, requiring users to buy special movie discs just to watch movies or play old, re-released games on it, is a bit much.
