This would effectively be the second time it has delayed the European launch since it originally planned to release the machine in time for Christmas last year.
A spokesman for Sony spoke with GameSHOUT this morning did not confirm whether or not the launch would be delayed, saying only that it continues to expect to roll the machine out "in the spring."
The company source said Sony still planned to ship 3 million PSPs by March 31, but it was not sure how the distribution of those units would change if the launch in Europe was delayed.
