Sony's John Koller Thinks iPad Users Will Be Tempted By PSP.

The iPad was announced by Apple this week, and is essentially an inflated iPod Touch, capable of supporting the numerous millions of Apps on the iTunes Store.
“Apple’s entrance into the portable gaming space has been a net positive for Sony,” said Koller. “When people want a deeper, richer console, they start playing on a PSP.”</blockquote>

We can kinda see where John's coming from - undeniably the PSP is a deeper portable platform. Alas, probably better to have kept quiet on that front.
