PARIS, March 14 (AFP) - Sony Corporation will postpone the European launch of its new PlayStation Portable for several months, with production struggling to meet stronger-than-expected demand, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) France chief Georges Fornay said Monday.

Sony had planned to bring the PSP to market in Europe toward the end of March, following its December 12 launch in Japan. It was due to start selling in the United States on March 24.

Early in March, SCE had warned that it was reconsidering the timing of the launch, as it thought customers would not be satisfied if the consoles were released in insufficient quantities.
