Babelfish translation:

From the 5 to next 9 January, Las Vegas will accomodate a new edition of THESE (Consumer Electronic Show). During this living room, the principal actors of the world of the video play present their new products. Sony America will benefit from it to announce information of the launching of the PSP on the American continent. January 5, a press conference will take place moving of the living room like that is done at the time of l'E3. The price, the date of exit and the line-up of the "Day One" will be officialized. According to certain persistent rumours, the giant Electronic Arts would present 6 titles for the portable console made in Sony: FIFA, NFSU Rivals, NBA Street, NFL Street, Tiger Woods and MVP Baseball. Still a few hours, and we will be fixed. For l'Europe, any advertisement n'est made for the moment.

Notice that on the sites main page, this info is not marked as a rumor. The site seems pretty reputable. So what do you folks think?

Also, they have a 100% completed savegames of ridge racer and lumines available for dow:woot: :woot: ...for the lucky few who have imported/or live in Japan

It also seems that they have a repack of the 3gp converter which is widely used for converting videos into a psp acceptable (mpeg 4 I believe) format. The repack looks like a more clean version of the original 3gp converter version .22 and can be found here:

Title needs to be changed to "PSP Launch Date TBA Jan. 5" so it's not as misleading. I was excited there for a second!
