Last week Sony’s Jack Tretton warned that the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan may push back the release of the NGP in some regions, but now Sony says that production of the NGP is continuing ahead as planned.

Only a matter of few days after Tretton’s caution, Sony’s Japan division began its damage control, calling the Bloomberg piece flat out “wrong.”

So far we see no impact from the quake on our launch plan.

Saying that the quake has not effected production “so far” certainly isn’t the strongest language that could have been used, but it certainly re-establishes the possibility of an 11/11/11 release date for more than one region.
