It's now January of 2005 and the PSP is still nowhere to be found. Unless you happen to be at a store when shipments arrive (or you, perhaps, live in the remote "inaka"), you have as much a chance of getting a PSP now as you did at launch: zero. Did Sony Computer Entertainment screw up and not produce the number of systems it had promised? Apparently not. In comments shared with the press today, SCE president Ken Kutaragi revealed that SCE was able to ship out 510,000 systems by the end of December. This number is 10,000 more than had originally been promised.
