I think that's been an astounding marketting move by Sony.
Their home territory has lost favour with Sony for their home consoles and are more inclined to go with the gimmicky consoles such as the wii.
They also have a total hard on for handhelds over there that isn't apparent in other regions. So delay main console launch over there but give them a new iteration of their favourite handheld....top marks Sony.
