Sony Computer Entertainment will announce the real name of its PSP successor, codenamed NGP, later this year, Shuhei Yoshida, president, SCE worldwide studios, has told Edge magazine.

Asked why the handheld wasn't announced as the PSP2, Yoshida said: "Well, NGP is the codename we've used since 2008. We will announce the final name of the console sometime later this year."

NGP will be released in at least one territory late in 2011. Whether that means Europe remains to be seen.
