    I can't help but feel they're being sarcastic. No one can be THAT stupid...except Sony(PSPgo is a flop and failure, no one can deny this) and Apple(Really. A bigger iPod. Stop copying Nintendo, Apple.)

    Neither can the PSP.

    Seriously, I don't get what all the fuss is about. What important, essential, mission-critical tasks to you have to have running in the background at all times while you're doing something else on the device?

    Well in my humble opinion the PSP Go is like a crystal of super-condensed fail, there are basically no redeeming features to it aside from how easy it is to rip on it for being so crap. And the Ipad looks like a brick. It really does look bloody awful. Like someone hacked open an Etch-A-Sketch and put a half-assed game system inside. I've never seen the appeal of the Ipod, etc either. The only game I've seen that might interest me is Ace Combat Xi, but since there's a new one coming to the old-style PSP anyway, I don't care. I'll not be buying either. I'll stick to my DS Lite, thanks.

    Seems to be talking about PSP Go not the PSP as a whole. The platform's 5 years old now anyway something new will come along sooner or later but it better not be that stupid iPad! I hate that "i" prefix with a passion, I mean everything from speakers to cheap MP3 players have started using it.

    Apple must've paid them with a little bit of money.

    Read: $1m (but what is a million to good(!?) ol' Mr. Jobs?)

    You can't even listen to music while on the internet with the iPad, with a hacked PSP you can listen to music in-game.

    Actually, It does multi task. It's firmware is still operating in the background. It's just that sony never made use of multi tasking....
