iPad will boost PSP sales, says Sony rep

Apple, Gaming, iPad, Tech Digest news

ipad psp.jpgI’m still trying to figure out the logic behind this one. Sony’s John Koller believes that having the iPad as a major rival in the handheld console territory will actually increase sales of Sony’s machine.

Unlike Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata who out-and-out dismissed the iPad as a worthwhile gaming console, Koller believes that the iPad will act as a casual stepping stone from the tablet to Sony’s handheld.

“Apple’s entrance into the portable gaming space has been a net positive for Sony … when people want a deeper, richer console, they start playing on a PSP.”

Consider this fact though: since the iPhone’s first launch in 2007, PSP sales have “nearly tripled”. Is the release of killer titles like God of War Chains of Olympus, GTA: Chinatown Wars and new versions of the handheld console the answer, or something more…sinister…?
