Nintendo of America Asks: Who is Sony’s PSP Go For?

psp-goThe Christmas battle has commenced and Nintendo gaffer, Reggie Fils–Aime, has thrown of his gloves and slapped the Sony PSPgo firmly across the chops.

Reggie is known for telling it like he sees it – while he was having a go at the go he also took a quick swipe at the iPod Touch.

The PSPgo has been in the news, mainly regarding its price but Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime has put his cards on the table when chatting with The Washington Post about the PSPgo.

Mr fils-Aime said, “I have the utmost respect for all our competitors, but it’s interesting to try and answer the consumer question of ‘What’s in it for me?’ in that product.”

and then went on to say that the PSPgo had a, “fundamental concept problem in terms of ‘Who’s it for?’ and ‘What’s the benefit?’”

He was then on a roll and got the iPod Touch in his sights.

Saying the he sees that the iPod touch continues to grow as a gaming platform but the Nintendo DS offered an experience that couldn’t be matched by Apple’s efforts.

Speaking of titles including Mario Kart and Scribblenauts, he said, “All of these experiences are very unique and very different and what you cannot find on their App Store.”

So – which do you favour and why?

iPod Touch, PSPgo or Nintendo DS/i?

Let me know 🙂
