    I have just decided to trade in my PSP for a DS lite, and I have three questions.

    1.How much can I get for my PSP, a 512Mb mem card, and a game?

    2.What game should I get for it? I want a very fun and addicting game that will last me awhile. I was thinking about getting Mario Kart DS?

    3.How much is a DS lite?

    Thanks!

    1. If you go to a Gamecrazy, you will get 90 dollars in credit for your PSP (not sure if the store around you will give you cash, many of them don't.). 512 MB card will probably be 8-9 dollars in credit, and the game, well it depends on what game it is.

    2. Mario Kart DS is only fun if you have people to play with, if you want a game that will last you quite some time, get Final Fantasy III.

    3. The DS Lite is 129.99. I prefer the black, but you may prefer Coral Pink or Artic White. Black is sexy though, also for accessories, if you are going to get it, get the Playpack (I believe it's by Pelican.) It comes with a belt clipped storage case, an extra stylus, a screen guard and a velvet cloth to wipe off finger prints from your system. It also comes with a game case to hold 3 DS games and 2 Gameboy Advance games.

    I really don't see that big a difference in the two except for the pokemon.

    addicting game, hmm, i say if you can try to find Advance Wars: DUAL STRIKE, but thats only if your into strategy, by the way, its turn based, i thought i wouldnt like turn based (starcraft/warcraft whore here) strategy games but i LOVED it, and ive invested around 30 hours into it so far, (ive gotten 3 new games since) personally, the best one for me besides advance wars is..Yoshis Island DS...pretty hard and long, then you can go back and unlock tons of mini games and 2 bonus levels for each world and a exclusive mini game for each world (HELLA HARD!!!) im on world 5, the last one, it makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry

    I just got rid of my DS Lite with 5 games, everything still in the box for $100. :lol: I am such an idiot but I was way too lazy to put it on eBay so I gave it to Gamestop. I had a PSP at launch when there weren't many good games out so I got rid of it for the DS, then got rid of the DS for the DS Lite. I must say the games are fun as hell but if you want something mature with better graphics, look elsewhere. And that is the reason why I am heading back to the PSP. Now that there are a **** load of titles out.

    PSP is more for overall media entertainment..no killer apps really, GTA was ported to PS2, and I'm sure the new GTA will be ported as well to the PS2.
    3 games that appeal to me: Loco Roco, Killzone: Liberation, and I think its Ghosts n Goblins <--heard it was REALLY hard
    my friend had a psp, i would play this weird matrix like shooter and i got hand cramps

    The green looks awesome and get Yoshi Island 2, I dont have a DS yet but I am going to get one if not a Wii and if you want to know your credit you divide by 3 for the new price, so for a PSP, 250 divided by 3 = $83....:(

    That's not always true. I look at the receipt from Gamecrazy and they game me 90 dollars in credit for it, not much of a difference, but still.

    I just bought a DS Lite in onyx black and I never saw the other 2 colors, I think maybe its only available in Japan? The Light blue and Green? Any heads up, I just asked EB games when I bought my black one and they said the blue was only in Japan. Whats the word?
