The launch of Sony's PlayStation Portable in the UK has been a success with many shops already sold out of stock. The European launch of the PSP was initially delayed as the company had to ensure enough stock for the US debut.
A spokesperson for Sony said of the UK launch: "We think it will be the biggest UK launch in the history of our business across all manufacturers." The PSP is not only a portable gaming machine, it also plays films and music and has Web capability.
Some UK PlayStation fans lined up outside stores through the night, while some stores held special midnight releases. One Tesco spokesperson said "... the level of excitement around the launch day for PSP has been amazing." Source
