Sony thankful for iPad

Apple’s freshly revealed iPad has been given a warm welcome from Sony, who believes that the supersized iPod Touch can act as a gateway into the wider world of gaming.

“Apple's entrance into the portable gaming space has been a net positive for Sony,” SCEA’s hardware marketing director John Koller told the Wall Street Journal.

“When people want a deeper, richer console, they start playing on a PSP.”

The comments are somewhat warmer than those made by Nintendo president Saturo Iwata last week. The exec told the New York Times that: “There were no surprises for me – it’s a bigger iPod Touch.”
