Sony readies PSP for launch in Singapore

The PlayStation Portable is set to take a bow in South East Asia for the first time on May 12th, with Sony preparing to launch the handheld platform in Singapore on that date.

The high-tech city-state is the only country in the region to receive an official launch of the PSP thus far - and only the third country in Asia as a whole, after the Japanese launch just before Christmas and the planned South Korean launch next month.

As yet, it's not been confirmed which titles will launch with the PSP in Singapore, or whether the device will ship with online capabilities, as it will in South Korea. However, further details are expected to emerge at a special press preview event a week ahead of the retail launch, on May 5th.
