    Oh dear... another 'gamer' blinded by good graphics and sound . Sigh... I have explained this to people many a time... games don't have to have good graphics to be good. The PSP has good graphics I'll give it that, but it has very few good games. The DS however doesn't have the best graphics out there I admit, but what it does have is excellent games, and lots of them. I think you should give the DS a try and when you do try it concentrate on the gameplay, not the graphics. If you do that you'll realise that the DS is the better system . One question though, have you played any DS game? Or have you just looked at the graphics any automatically decided its the worst portable console out there? Because if you only play games with good graphics then you missing out on a lot of games.

    P.S: The PSP can do nothing that the PS2 can't. Plus most of its games are crappy PS2 ports .

    the psp i actually like alot as with the ds i like it too but the psp is actually a good system with some good games (not alot of rpgs tho) that many nintendo fanboys (no offense) wont try simply because its from the evil empire in sony but i have played both and i love both the price difference is probably a big advantage for nintendo but heres the funny thing you can buy a ps2 for cheaper then a ds ... and with the psp being a portable ps2 THATS THE WHOLE POINT its what sony wanted to do with it and many people applaud them for it ....... it just matters what fits your style of gaming and your needs the ds is also a great system with plenty of great games (yes more then the psp) but its inovation that got this system where it is ... my verdict is go for which ever one you think will fit your needs and will have you enjoy it more thats the problem with alot of things today people dont acess their needs before buying a product and it leads to less enjoyment ... i am just trying to tell people get what you think you will enjoy more if not you could be very disapointed ..... if you go onto to a sony site they will only tell you the bad things about the other console and it is no different with this site sadly enough.... but its ok because this is peoples opinions and you should always acess the buy before hand i cant emphisize this enough because of the mistakes that i have made by not doing this in the past ... just do what works for you ....... go wii lol.

    the voice of reason martini178!
    thats very true, through blind support for nintendo its easy to immediately downplay competitors without recognising the true fun value of its games. I never really thought the PSP was that bad, the main problem i had with it was the pricing, it was just too damn expensive, additionally the whole UMD Movie thing is just stupid; who wants to pay twice what you'd pay for a DVD to watch it on a screen the fraction of the size of your TV? Besides, when exactly would you have the chance to watch those movies? I doubt a bus/train ride into town would last 2 hours (unless your state/county/province/city/district has some serious public transport issues or you just enjoy getting motion sickness).

    On the other hand, the PSP does have some great games, even Resident Evil 4 is a prospective title for Sony's handheld, and that was just a downright gorgeous game in every way. Functionally speaking, there have been alot of homebrew (colloquial term for independantly made, unofficial programs) applications in circulation for the PSP, making it a very versatile machine, meaning you can potentially play all your favourite ROMs on it, along with some classics like DOOM and Duke Nukem 3D through unofficial ports. Having said that, the PSP has no in-built storage devices, so in order to posess enough space for games and the like, the user must buy memory sticks, which aren't exactly cheap.

    Personally I never really found the whole mp3 player aspect of the PSP all that appealing, isnt that why we have mp3 players which are smaller, with alot more storage and mp3 features on the market? Companies seem to continue trying to cram as much as they can into their products, thinking it makes them better, or likely to sell more- not necasserily. One thing it does guarentee though is a higher price; Royalties and licensing fees to the companies who developed the .mp3 codec and whatnot.

    I was a little annoyed at the DS' lack of features, but thats when I think if they had included them the system would probably be alot more expensive. I was also somewhat taken aback by the system's pixellated graphics, then I realised if they had made the DS with better hardware (which is certainly not out of nintendo's technological means) the system would probably be larger, more expensive, and use more battery power. Besides, with screens that size you don't really notice the pixellation unless you stop for a detailed scan of your environment.

    The main thing that appealed to me about the DS was the WiFi connection as well as wireless local multiplayer. If the DS did not utilise wireless hardware I probably would not have bought it. The whole NintendoWiFi service is an awesome feature, the fact it is free makes it even more appealing and accessible to gamers (as opposed to XboX Live's subscription fee) and it's so easy to get going; just get your DS into a wireless hotspot, connect up to NintendoWiFi and get gaming around the world. It works in any area with wireless internet (I usually play down at the cafe underneath the theatre with a hot mocha :P). I hear the PSP has in-built wireless hardware too, however I have not heard any reports on a major international PSP online service yet.

    So Nintendo with its legions of online multiplaying fans gives the console worth, and quite honestly who doesnt enjoy jumping online (hopefully not with any disconnecting/dishonourable n00bs) with some Metroid Prime Hunters and blowing a few suckers away? :P

    About the damage resistance on each handheld, I was running for a lecture one morning and my DS fell out of my top pocket, seriously I was sprinting here, I turned just to watch it bounce and skid across the ground. I picked it up thinking crapcrapcrapcra.....wha? It had 2 scratches on the corner and that was it. I was all "Er...okaaay". Guy in one of my clubs told me his PSP cracked on its back casing when a book fell on it

    Correct, it just seems too standard.
