3DS, “PSP-4000” pegged for 2010 by Japanese retailer

According to a listing from Japanese retailer Geo, 3DS is set to drop this year. And so is “PSP-4000”.

No exact date is mentioned for either console.

NoA president Reggie Fils-Aime said over the weekend that 3DS will be out next year on US TV.

UK retailers seem convinced the machine won’t make it to Europe until 2011.

Fils-Aime has already confirmed 3DS will release in all major markets by the end of March next year, so we may be looking at first signs of a pre-2011 Japanese launch.

PSP-4000, meanwhile, hasn’t been announced. This may be PSP2, which is currently rumoured for a first airing at gamescom in August or Tokyo Games Show in September.

Watch the skies, innit.
