It appears that in the wake of Apple’s big announcement when it unveiled its new iPad tablet PC, that people have been giving their responses and reactions. And according to a report at defaultprime.com, Sony and Nintendo are to name a couple.
Yesterday, it was Nintendo president Satoru Iwata that gave his reaction to last week’s announcement by Apple. And it appears that he wasn’t too stoked on it, saying that “It was a bigger iPod Touch.” He went on to say that it offered “no surprises.”
Sony on the other hand, expressed a lot of optimism and happiness about the new iPad tablet. Sony’s John Koller, who is Director of Hardware Marketing, said that Apple’s entrance into the portable gaming space had been a net positive for Sony.
He then went on to say that when people want a deeper, richer console, then they start playing on the PSP (PlayStation Portable). But that is not necessarily the case, as people don’t appear to be coming to the PSP for a deeper, richer console.
