What do you think? I like PSP but not by much.
Kelcey
I suppose the DS has better games but the PSP has better functionality (UMD player). So if you care about the "extras," as opposed to the games, then you should get the PSP... otherwise get a DS.
Monkeydog
The DS is going down in price too soon.
I like the DS cause it actually has more than one or two games unlike the PSP(and they are just dumbed down versions of PS2/PSX games like Dynasty Warriors)
JaeCee
Well, although I like Sony much better, Nintendo might have the upperhand between the two. For one thing, Nintendo's the handheld kings. Secondly, the touch screen opens up a lot of possible innovative uses, although I haven't really seen any DS game that's used it in a groundbreaking way as of yet.

The PSP has the nice tech specs, and I would like to have one, but I think my PS2 will suffice until PS3.

i always prefered sony and i still prefer psp then DS..

Any reason why?
Only reason I'd get a PSP if it had tons of good new games come out(like the DS is getting with Animal Crossing,Lunar,and Phoneix Wright)or just so I could use the emulation fact of it.

I have not seen any one PSP game that has been as fun as Warioware:Touched >.>
Herbz3
The PSP is by far better because of the quality of the system itself and because it has better games. If game designers would get off their lazy butts and make some original games for the DS, then the PSP might have some compitition. It just seems like Nintendo didnt do that good with their new consoles and handhelds......

PSP, MP3 player, Video Player, Portable gaming system, Nuff said!

and coming out
Devil May Cry

>.> I know there is a few more coming out(can't think of them)
but at the moment
DS>>>>>>PSP
PSP has a few games but their like when the Ngage came out,all ports from superior console games.
Plus you must be pretty dim wited to buy a UMD disc to play a movie >.>
Seriously why buy something that cost the same as a DVD but has inferior quality and can only be played on one damn thing that doesn't even play it well?
I think the designers for Sony need to get off there butts and make a game worth getting a PSP for.

ALSO!!!
The DS is cheaper and can be a MP3 player(and even a video player) for all less then a PSP would cost >.>
toyzintheattic
Thank you, Monkey, THANK you. There's just...really nothing I can say that you didn't already.

PSP is a nice little peice of equipment and I would not mind owning one...but when it comes down to it Nintendo are the real deal. Sony tries to be mainstream and it succeeds, but it's just so...lame of a thing to do.
matt87
PSP seems like the better system because of all the game and the features it has. Even though DS is touch screen which is pretty cool but I still would perfer the PSP over it.
LostOverThere
Some devolpers had trouble making games for the PSP, because of its Specs.

I like the DS more, honestly, why buy a movie for the PSP if you can get it cheaper for a DVD player and watch it on a bigger screen?
cavalkaf
PSP all the way. Hackable, has a browser, and has better graphics/games.
Oh, and only one screen Smile
kain
Though I'm a die-hard nintendo fan, the psp gets my vote. There's no denying that the psp has better graphics and I really hate the whole touch screen thing... I just wish they'd team up and make one super-system...

<sarcasm>And as everyone knows a console with better graphics make better games</sarcasm>
JaeCee
In the end, it's just fanboys vs. fanboys I guess, with a couple of unbiased people stuck in between.

Although I prefer Sony over Nintendo, like I said before, both have their own advantages. It's not always about which has better graphics or hardware.

The touchscreen on the DS has high potential. Some find it awesome. Some find it annoying. You can't really judge from personal preferences. Same goes for the dual screen.

The PSP's is basically a mini PS2. Some think all you need is graphics to have good game. That's not necessarily true. I find a lot of SNES games way more fun than a lot of games coming out on PS2 nowadays. Sprites aren't dead yet.

So yeah, this handheld war isn't like a console war. In the next-gen consoles, the 3 systems compete at almost every aspect. Graphics power, Wireless capabilities, netplay .. but for the PSP and DS, it's not as clear-cut. They both have very different target audiences and focusses. DS goes for ingenuity and originality at the cost of processing power. The PSP aims to be the mini PS2 that you've always wanted in your pocket.

So in my opinion, there's no clear 'better' handheld. The differences between them is like trying to compare a toaster and a microwave. They both cook food, but that's the only simliarity you'll really find. It's all in your heads.

toyzintheattic
PSP has a large ammount of good games?

Well, that's news to me!
Monkeydog
Ya' Know in this whole topic JaeCee is probably the only one to actually give reason to defend the PSP if even barely.
toyzintheattic
The PSP is not a bad thing by any means. There are some games I'd want...(Like...LUMINES <3)

But at the moment...as a gaming system...it completely and utterly fails. As a cool gadget, it does it's job. But, that's just not enough incentive to buy a peice of hardware. If I want a portable GAMING system I want to do some GAMING. And really, Nintendo's been there since day one, I'm not turning my back on them now.

Because if you think about it...was it not Nintendo who brought us the D-pad with the NES? Then the analog stick with the N64? The touchpad is just another one of those Nintendo inventions that is quite awesome.

I'll admit...when I first heard of the DS I thought Nintendo had flipped they're lid. But when it comes down to it, they make the good games.
SilverDogg
this is a stupid question, mainly because the ds is a gameconsole, while psp isnt. and also because they are very different.

i prefer ds, but if there would be any interesting games on the psp (HAHA), i could probarbly pick it up when it costs half as much as the ds, and have a much better battery.
dcshoes23
I like the psp better because it has a really nice big screen and multimedia functionality. I think that the Nintendo ds touchscreen is a good idea but not really good enough. Another reason why I like the psp better is its games. I think they look a lot better looking and are a lot more appealing to me.

Thanks Very Happy
CELR
I own a PSP, i prefer it, in my opinion the DS sucks.. the PSP has awesome graphics, great functionality and.. piracy! lol
hardcoregamer808
It kind of matters of what you think of which is better because, the psp isn't really a handheld console, it's more like a handheld multimedia device and the dsis strictly for gaming, unless you get a play yan or a gba movieplayer which is only like 20$ Us and cheaper on ebay. Anyways, for gaming I prefer the Ds and for multimedia I guess people would go with the psp but i would go with the ds because of the gba movieplayer, and plus it takes forever to load on the psp and the games are extremely short.
bassgs_17
Personally, I vote for the Nintendo DS. True, the PSP has UMD playback, MPEG playback, MP3's, etc., but the Play-Yan Micro will be released in the US eventually, and it will grant the DS MPEG and MP3 playback. I've always been a Nintendo fan, anyway.
Nameless
I picked DS, just because I like Nintendo games for than Playstation games. I personally get annoyed at all the random features they add to their consoles that don't really add that much. I mean, the whole dual screen thing is kind of stupid. Why not just have one, larger, screen? (obviously a problem for portability, but still...)

In addition to what I said earlier, I also favor the DS because of the fact that A Dragonball Z game will be coming out.... Eventually. -_-' And don't think I am some twelve year old kid, saying that either. DBZ is an excellent game and tv series, and besides, unleashing a Final Flash against an opponent whom you're playing wirelessly will be beyond cool.

dan751
Sony's PSP is simply better than Nintendo's DS. The PSP has half the graphics power of the PS2, the DS has the same graphical power as the Nintendo 64. The PSP can play music, movies, read ebooks and browse the web, and oh, play games. The DS can play games, and as far as I know, send messages back and forth with other DS consoles. So there you have it, my verdict is that the PSP is better.
Dark_Jedi06
The PSP is a better "system", in that it has all those extras, such as movies, ect. I've never really liked Playstation games though, thus my vote goes to my beloved DS. Smile

Though in my opinion, both are phenomnal pieces of equipment. Razz

Jump Superstars looks AWESOME.
Probably will never come state side though v-v

PSP does have a better set of equipment,but that doesn't mean it has better games.Since the new PSP upgrade YOU CAN'T run stuff like emulators any more which juts made me lose all chance of even having one.If I wanted an MP3/Movie player I could buy a Play Yan or some third party thing from Lik Sang.
The PS2's hardware is crap but I bet a lot of you like it more than the Xbox and GCN becuase it has better games...
blackomen12
hmm... I have a DS, but I still think that the PSP is WAY better.
DarkYuke
Simply put, I prefer the DS better. As cool as how much functionality there is in the PSP, the games just don't stack up. Theres no variety in the games (According to my tastes anyway) and the movie playing stuff, mp3's and whatnot, I simply don't need it. My point is, why do you need so much things in a gaming system? My answer is, you dont need them. At up to $200 AUS more expensive then a DS, it simply isn't worth the money.

Plus, I'm a diehard Nintendo fan Very Happy

In my opinion, the PSP is just a waste of time.

The DS is capable of dishing out very decent graphics. Soon, Nintendo Wifi will be released and it's going to be awesome playing with anyone around the world with Mario Kart.

Lik Sang or whatever the hell it's called.You could get 3rd party equiptment for it or even the Play Yan!
Everyone is hoping it comes state side for the DS ^_^ but you can still get it online,plus I've seen 3rd party junk at Gamestop and Best Buy.
bassgs_17
In addition to what I said earlier, the DS will also support wifi compatability, as soon as a compatible game is released. Hooray, Wifi!
Natrualkiller
Psp seems like it has more options like dvds and mp3 player also has more and my opinion better games then ds and also ds's prices are droping really fastly i guess bad sales that will not attract more games so i would say psp for the win
ldnet
I prefer the psp, Im jsut in love with it lol. The psp will rip the ds apart any time way better games, graphics, screen, movies, hacks, everything, can use a hard drive awsoem stuff man.

PSP ROCKS!!!

No it's UMD not DVD.

Second the PSP has very few good games on it,compared to the DS.

Last the DS's prices aren't dropping because it's doing bad,it's because Nintendo rules.
The DS is beating every console/handheld almost everywere, in sales.
aznrex
well,
i just have to say you cant really compare the 2 hand held the way many people here do

PSP in sonys pov and in my pov is more then a gaming console, they targeted the console to be sold to older people who wants entertaiment on the go, much like a palm. though some might say that DS have better games. but aint all this just opinion?? no one can really say which is better. also PSP do have great games and alot of useful homebrew.
what the DS lacks the PSP has it, vice versa

to me i like both DS and PSP
i use psp for movies and music on the go

also if you dont belive me that sony targetted PSP not jsut for gamming
they are using PSP an PS3 for their loss in the TV market by introducing alot more movies shows and TV for the PSP. sony is planning on making these.

anyways, my english aint the best hope you get my point
and again you cant compare the 2 !!!!

Playing music- my CD player or my computer

PSP fits nowhere on my list.
jozsi1983
I have played both but i still perfer the psp. Its a mini ps2 in your pocket. You can watch movies, get online, play online, play music, I think if you are a hard core gamer you should get this. But if you like DS get both. But you should get the sony psp first : )

Have a great time with your PSP~! Cool

Final Conclusion. (not sure if its conclusion or something else. Very Happy )
1. 13 years and up = PSP, 12 years and down = DS
DS obviously makes games for kids, and PSP targets everyone.
I, myself, find most of the DS games not worth playing. ( Yes I have a brother who once was a DS freak, and he has many games, which I have tried some. Now, he knows the PSP, and is in the PSP. I own both a PSP and a DS, and my Ds is in dust...
2. Im not saying DS is bad. For kids, DS is a good handheld and friend.
PSP is for both kids and more older people. the kids can play some easy but good games for the PSP and the others, like me, can enjoy the full functions of PSP, including chatting.)
DS is good, but PSP is better. If you are a DS fan, just say you like DS, dont say that it's better than PSP.

Well, this is it.
No Offence dear DS fans. I just suggest you try the full functions of PSP.
Thanks to all for reading.
Please do not copy without my credit. Smile
Monkeydog
Nintendo games are not kidish just because they mostly don't involve death and stuff.
Nintendogs kicks hell of ass, so does Warioware.
If you've noticed most PSP games aren't even rated that high, while Warioware,Nintendogs, Advanced Wars,Super Mario 64,Fell The Magic, and Metros were all rated hell of high.
The PSP has nothing special about it, game wise, other than Lumines.
Also after I posted that topic a lot more DS games were announced,and the PSP games that did come out mostly sucked(sadly one was Death Jr.)
While the DS got Lunar and in a few days Phoneix Wright and Truama Center(or whatever it's called)

Wow. Just WOW. You actually use the "Nintendo is 4 KIDZ!!!1" arguement? I really thought we were over that. Nintendo makes FUN games. Just because they aren't really violent and don't have sex and blood in it DOESN'T MEAN IT'S KIDDY. What the ****** do you want them to do? Make a Mario Theft Auto where he's killing hookers and instead of a water gun or powerups have machine guns and machetes? There should be missions where you have to jack cars and sell 'shrooms to Toadette or something. Then have a ******-her-up-the-ass mini-game where you have to move the control stick just right. Jesus, have some common sense.

Last time I checked DS was doing very well. Not sure which handheld is winning but by no means are they in a slump with the DS. Many innovative games (1st and 3rd party) developed have been coming out, and PSP has got...shit.

toyzintheattic
Sorry, double post.
jblaze
although the ds is cool because it has the double screen and the pen, i gotta go with the psp because of its abilities to play homebrew emulators and roms. Once people figure out how to take full advantage of its processor and all the emulators are tweaked to their fullest .. we will be able to play all the old roms... at least if you have the v1.5 or lower Wink

And a Portable DVD Player is cheaper and better than a PSP...
ManKind Monster
PSP. is better.
Monkeydog
This poll will never work, why?
Because the DS is more appealing to real gamers while the PSP applies to the majority and what is now called "American" gamers, also pirates but I don't count them since they aren't playing PSP games.
American gamers care not if the game is actually fun, or new, but if it's got pretty graphics and popular.
Pretty much why Halo is so popular over here, because so many people bought an Xbox and it was the best game(other than Morrowind)they got. Even though Halo pretty much brings nothing new the the FPS genre or creates a new genre in itself.

It seems, a lot of the people here would qualify for the "American" gamer area...or just someone who isn't that big in games and wants an MP3 player that can play movies and the occasional game.

What he's implying is that he doesn't need all those functions when their are clearly better substitutes. Tell me, where would watching a movie on a 6-inch screen 'on the go' be approriate?

In the waiting room of the doctors while all these people stare at you as you distract them with booms and bangs from the PSP?

Or perhaps in a restaurant, where you don't do anything but watch movies and don't socialise while you can?

Or maybe even in the car or bus or some form of land transport? Car, perhaps. But in public transport, I would find it extremely irritating if the person across me just started to play a movie in the silence. Wouldn't you get dizzy anyway? Why not instead look at the scenery around you?

1. You don't need all those functions, its a GAMING system we're talking about.
2. Refer to my previous answer, and piracy? We don't need to know your illegal workings
3-5. You all make no point into why it is better.

EDIT:
Plus as I mentioned ages ago, PSP is WAY too expensive for its own good.
GamingParadise
I think PSP is alot better because:

- Nice Graphics
- Watch Movies, Yes watch movies, what if ur sick of playing a game but you are making a long trip and want something to do, yes then watch a movie on your PSP.
-Not Too big ( I don't like the grab of the DS )
-Expend Memory, u can buy a "Memory Card" for your PSP

But the only thing, the PSP isn't cheap Sad
sqlreport
If you are gamer, you will pick DS for its intuitive design. If you are gadget lover, you will like PSP because it provides everything from games to Movies. I think comparing these two are like comparing apples to oranges.
rbooth
although the ds is an excellent console i would still vote for the psp just because of all its extra features like UMD which the ds doesnt have. also the ds is made by nintendo and i hate nintendo
Guelila
Would GTA games be possible on DS?
I personally love Star Wars Battle Front, and Im waiting for the 2nd one for PSP.
Can the DS play games like these?

My bro bought advanced wars yesterday, and it has nothing to do with the touch screen feature.

Why would you even care, and yes it could.Although Nintendo usally doesn't get Rockstar games, but they did get GTA:Advanced.

Yes, absoultly, why couldn't it?

Just because it's there doesn't mean you have to use it.If I had a PSP I wouldn't touch that dumb UMD feature.

OMG Phoneix Wright came out today*Drools*
Guelila
lol
No it couldnt Laughing
Why would I even care?
If they are the next generation consoles, I expect better graphics.
Monkeydog
Ummm Yes it could.

And it's not a console, plus games supposed to just look good on the eyes, you should be able to have fun playing it, not just looking at it...
Dark-Tech
compared to the Psp the ds is nothing

the ds only function is a game system a gameboy with relatively old technology the only interesting thing is the touch screen used at atms for years,

the psp has wireless connection options, you can use it like an mp3 player essentially has psp dvd playback, and has games

there is no competion and no one can say otherwise and be sane let alone right
Monkeydog
Yes, there is no competition...the PSP owns the DS in little stupid unnecssary things, and the DS owns the PSP in actual games...
No matter how diffrent the graphics are, doesn't mean a damn thing if you don't have gameplay to back it up.
The SNES,NES,and PSX are still pretty much considered probably the best game consoles ever, why?
'Cause they had enjoyable games, noone really cared about graphics, cause graphics don't make a game fun...
Guelila

Oh yes it does.
There are a lot of fun games for PSP in my view and in your view the DS has better games.
We are not disscussing about games and ofcourse not everyone like the same kinds of games.

Games could be counted in them, but not the main discussion.

Yes it could be!It'd be diffrent sure, but it's still possible.
Graphics do nothing for gameplay except make the game look pretty, and at times making a game change graphics will kill how fun the game is.
Such as Worms...that game sucked after it went to 3D.

Plus why wouldn't you talk about Games on a GAMING CONSOLE in the GAMES forum?

Graphics do nothing to make a game fun, would Tetris be as fun in 3D?
I don't think so, Sonic started sucking after it went into 3D.

Graphics do nothing!

If there is bad gameplay behind the pretty graphics, its not a good game.Almost every PSP game is a port or the same kind of game that I have played over and over and over again.Now look at games like Warioware:Twisted, Trauma Center, Nintendogs, Phoneix Wright, and Animal Crossing DS...there haven't been to many games like these, or none at all.They are all unique, special, in a way their own genre.

GTA and Starwars:Battlefront are both shooters, a genre that has been done to death with and very few new things are applied to it.Same with, sadly, RPGs.RPG's back in the SNES ara were fun, new, intersting...now they are mostly junk.

If you don't care about playing an actual fun game fine, go with the PSP...but the PSP is nothing compared to the DS when it comes to new, fun, unique games...
toyzintheattic
Hmm. I don't know why people are going on about how PSP games wouldn't be possible on DS. A lot of DS games really WOULD be impossible on the PSP.

Oh and, I don't NEED to take my computer on the go. Because I have a life and can do other things besides the computer stuff. Really, whenever I'm on the go I have no time for handhelds of any kind.

And CDs>mp3s. I don't care what anyone says. Maybe it's just cause I like something physical to hang onto, you know? Oh and then there's the whole STEALING FROM ARTISTS thing that I don't like to do.

DS is best!

The DS has all of the classic games such as mario DS Mario cart DS and what would be my favroite Super smash bros DS (Now that would be a good game)

The PSP on the other hand costs allot and i dont realy have that much money and like so what if it can play dvds and mp3 u gota buy em first and others will say "PSP has online and thats what makes it the best" well DS is bringing out online next month Razz and your will be to play games like animal croosing and super smash bros online for free and even msn.

So DS Rulz Very Happy Very Happy

To settle this never-ending arguement, I will write a review for both systems on Aquastrike's Realm. Okay? Personally, I think they're equal, and I guess it's about time I did a PSP review. All that's up now is the DS and XBOX (old). PM me if you would like to write game/console reviews for my site!

Nooooo noooo ; don't say that!
I'm poor.
I need it! Lol.

I agree though ; PSP to me is an insult to gaming. It seems like a gimicy thing. NO denying that it seriously kicks ass with what it can do... but its like.. eh ; I just want a gaming system.

The DS, absolutely.

I love it, it has brought me more weird games then any other console I played, and it was this console who really made me started importing games from Japan.

Next game that I REALLY want is Fullmetal Alchemst: DS

I think the PSP is great in its built in functionality. The DS can do stuff like video playback with thrid party devices, but who's gonig to buy that? My friend has a PSP and it looks cool and all, but theres only 1 game he really likes, and he doesn't really watch movies or play music on it. If I were to buy a PSP, I think I would be in a similar situation. I use to think that, despite that fact, that the PSP was better than the DS. But then the DS started to come out with some good games. Really good. The graphics aren't as pretty as the PSP but, if you have no fun games to play using those nice graphics, those nice graphics are useless. A bunch of my friends and I want the DS now becuase of the great games that are out.

i see more gamecoremembers are here =). nice nice ^_^

anyway, yes, the psp can play music and videos out of the box. BUT! wohpdidoo, if you buy the above mentioned play-yan, DING DING DING, you can listen to music/watch videos with either one of the gbas, or even the nintendo ds. you dont need to buy it if you dont want to use your gamingconsole for anything else but games.

to say that the psp is better because of the mp3 and videos is to ignore the fact that it is in the first place a gameconsole, which to be honest, sony isnt really showing. i dont see the psp as competition for gba nor ds.

It's your decision what's better, by comparising these consoles, maybe you can choose right platform.

What you get:

by buying PSP?
- graphics alike, but not exactly like on PS2 with good texture compression
- expensive, but exclusive console which is very good looking
- waterproof console (I read in magazine that someone has dropped PSP into water and it was not broken!
- only a few hours worth of playing Li-Ion battery
- support for MPEG-4/3GP, ATRAC3 music
- support for Memory Stick Duo cards
- Wi-Fi connection and web browser (in later firmware version)
- best homebrew software underground without modificating console (only a USB cable is needed)
- more good graphical game makes console to run for only 2-3 hours with Li-Ion battery (GTA:LCS)
- good accesories
- console is not protected from dust in anyway
- dead pixels in some models (but today it's not a problem)
- updates for games

by buying DS?
- worth graphics, like on a DS
- very good, surround speakers in console, and good sound
- many of games
- not that expensive
- touchscreen, microphone
- interesting patents in games and ideas
- support for GBA games (but not GBC, whoever)
- very good screen quality, without dead pixels (when they show, Nintendo gives you new console in no-time)
- very good Li-Ion battery, good and energonomic (instead of that in PSP)


You see, it's difficult. Want inexpensive - buy DS, want a selection of best Sony materials and addons? buy PSP.

Worst...comeback....ever.

The PSP is not a toy, toys are fun. The PSP is for graphic crazy maniacs who know nothing about gaming. There is one good game for the PSP, and that is Lumines...and I really wouldn't spend 250 bucks on Lumines. Plus the Megaman ports look like junk, I'd never touch them. If I wanted an emulator/media machine I'd just buy a GP2X...cheaper AND better. Just because Mario and crew are old, and people grew up playing them...does not make them kiddish. There is no such thing as "kiddish". When I play Metroid I'm not helping Samus say the alphabet, am I? I'm not teaching Yoshi which is a square and which is a circle.
The game industy has gotten to a point, were everything is the same as everything else. There is rarely a point in time when there is something new. It's all the same old gameplay...BORING. The DS is out to stop that...and idiots like you are holding back a revolution.
toyzintheattic
There's also Liberty City Stories. Smile

But other than that....


yeah...pretty much nothing...


The DS is capable of a lot more you guys are giving credit for. Certain games may not look quite as good as on PSP, but the hardware on DS is certainly nothing to dismiss. Meteos had some incredible graphics.
Dasuku
I feel the DS is much better if you want to play games. It has better games, more games and more often then not cheaper games. If you want movies or music then PSP is an ok idea. For myself, I'd have to go with DS and I have the flash carts for playing movies and music on it.

Although, I don't mind, but the bottom screen of the DS does get quite scratched after a while. x_x
TGWAdmin
I like the PSP over the DS. The graphics on the PSP are so much better than the DS. I have owned both systems so I know what I'm talking about. One of the games i purchased when I had my DS was "The Urbz: Sims in the City". This game has the EXACT SAME graphics quality as the GBA version. The only good thing is with the second screen. I do like the chat feature on the DS, but that wasn't as big as I thought it would be. The PSP allows you to play music, view photos, play videos, watch movies, and play games with much better graphics. You can also browse the internet on it!! Plus, the PSP had online play capabilities at launch. The DS just came out with it a few months ago, about a year after the launch of the system. Sony keeps updating their PSPs with more and better features. The DS has no such capabilities. This is probably because the target audience for Nintendo is the younger ages. Whereas the PSP is more for teens and up. I feel that the PSP is a better all-around portable system and is much better than the DS.
Timoses
I think the PSP is better because it has more functions, looks better Wink , lies more comfortable in the hands and is just Sony.
The DS probably has better games at the moment. But I hope there will come more and more games for the PSP with time.
And the 2 screen thingie. I think it sucks because after a while the touch screen should get really messed up and not usable anymore.
PSP : -D

Only because you know its true Wink And of course graphics makes a difference to a game, it does still need the gameplay though, the psp isnt the same old thing, its definitely something new having that much console power in such a small size, you dont have to bang on about the multimedia side of it to see how good it is.

IT DOES NOT!!!!
It just makes it look pretty, if all games still had SNES graphics people would still be happy, as long as the new unique gameplay was still there.
And it's not like the DS has crappy graphics, they are quite good. Not as good as the PSP...but there is really no need for that good of graphics!

well I do agree gameplay comes first over graphics, plenty of games ive seen in the past look great and are unplayable, they dont get loaded up much after a few tries Smile

This topic has been beat to death but just to add my two cents to the beating, I have played both consoles and honestly I want them both but for entirely different reasons.

The DS has creative, awesome, and inspired 2D and 3D games. It is a terrific platform for game lovers of all ages and more importantly people looking for unique software and gameplay approaches. It also has no loading times and its games are geared towards what a handheld is meant to do well (allow for quick portable gaming fixes!).

Now onto the PSP. First let me say that screen is awesome! It also definitely outperforms the DS by a mile in terms of power and thus graphic potential! It also looks sexier than all get out! While I am not as found of its gaming selection since I don't really see many innovative games or ones especially well tuned to portability, I think its uses as a multimedia device are tremendous. It can surf the web, play homebrews, play music, play movies and so on all on the go!! Say what you will about its lack of gaming innovation but the DS only wishes it could do those things (and if your listening nintendo please please add the PDA functionality that should have shipped with the DS on day one!).

Ok that's my two cents I think they both rock but fit two entirely different nitches and have very different strengths. Either way we can all agree this is a fantastic time to be a portable WiFi gamer!!

I wanted to buy DS before it came out. Now I would propabbly get PSP even though it won't have Megaman series T_T

ok ok, slow down there cowboy. first of all, i said BACKWARDS! i dont know if you are familiar with the term, but that usually means games released some time ago, and not this year. it usually means games from the nes, snes and n64 (but in this case probably only nes and snes, dunno about n64).

second of all, most of the games on ds arent playable on the psp for obvious reasons, which i thought everybody would understand. well, you proved me wrong there buddy. two screens. remember that. two screens. still remembering it? yeah thats right, the ds have TWO SCREENS. which means you will, if they are able to play dsgames on the psp, loose something. if you still dont understand what, please, dont hesitate to go away, and maybe even check up on stuff.

and now lets see, you tell me that the psp have a much larger screen. well, i wouldnt say much larger, but yea, you are right. but still, its just one screen. and woah woah woah! guess what else? theres no touch screen anywhere to be seen. or, is it maybe hidden? i can honestly say i have never seen anything touchy (or whatever you wanna call it) on the psp.

please, next time, think before you write. im sure you might have heard the word, but maybe you didnt understand it?

PSP Specs:

Console: $400
Game: $90
UMD: $35

I think its a bit of a rip-off, Dumbed down games, million dollar prices, $9 movies for a whooping $35.

DS Specs:

Console: $150
Game: $40-60

Cheap Cheap! Tons of games, and of a high quality.
djared90
I've always been a Nintendo fan from the N64 since. I do think that the PSP is a better console, but the selection of games isn't as wide as with the DS. Although the touch-screen on the DS might wear out after a while, I think (if I was going to buy one of these two) that I would stick with it.

Well, although I like Sony much better, Nintendo might have the upperhand between the two. For one thing, Nintendo's the handheld kings. Secondly, the touch screen opens up a lot of possible innovative uses, although I haven't really seen any DS game that's used it in a groundbreaking way as of yet.

The PSP has the nice tech specs, and I would like to have one, but I think my PS2 will suffice until PS3.

But nintedo DS offer a unique gameplay experience with its 2 screens(especially the touchpad can prove to be extremely usefull!)
If you are young naive, and judge by the graphics, then choose PSP, or else get a nintedo DS
I don't expect you to understand(you that voted for PSP)
And don't tell me about the movies on psp.(the screen is too small, and i would never watch movies on my way.The movie player exists in order to exist.Not usefull at all.

not if the dvd player plays vhs tapes. if a psp plays a nintendo game, the more power to the console. and what do you really think-- that sony just stole the scripting for all the nintendo games? if the titles were once true to nintendo, nintendo obviously didn't mind people playing their games on sony's console when they started porting them to the psp format.


holy crap, you really dont understand anything do you? sheesh!


i'm sorry, were you just attempting to prove something? i didn't see anything to back up your excessively licentious comment. perhaps you could enlighten me? however, if you prefer the dark shadow in that little cave of yours, that's fine with me as well.


hell, i could ask you the same! what is so hard to understand? if you buy a psp to play nintendo games, you ARE a retard. whats hard to understand in that sentance? tell me and i will clearly explain it to you!

2. WTF?!?!? Didnt you buy a PSP for playing the PSP games?
3. Calling a DS player a retard. Smells like fanboy....
4. More than 50% of the games to PSP are car games.
5. There hasn't been a real killer-app for the PSP yet.
6. Aint there more UMD movies than games right now <.<?

The DS cards can contain up to 1gb.
And the PSP up to 1,5gb.
Not so much more ;P

"psp can play mp3's mp4's umd videos has an internat browser and has much better graphics and can support much bigger games because of the umd's"
oh that internat sounds spiffy.

"psp has alot more things to do like listen to music and watch dvds"
The PSP can't play DVD's.
And the DS can do almost everything the PSP can do, except go online.

its very easy to convert a dvd to psp format and quite quick as long as u have a pc. You can fit two full length movies on a 1 gig card, so in a way yes you can, also looking around the shops today in the uk ds and psp games were roughly the same price so that argument no longer holds true at, least here.

PSP has much more mature games like GTA, Underground Rivals. And Ridge Racers.

Of course ridge racers is also on DS but in racing games graphics is a lot.

So if your a more childish person DS is right for you. Which most kids here are. On the other hand if your more mature like me. PSP is so much better in graphics, gameplay, interactives, portability.

So what about dual screens or triple screens? and touch screens. I just want a nice portable, good graphics, and good gameplay game. If you think that Mario Cart 64 is better than Underground Rivals... I really dont know what to say.. =)

Personally, I feel that the DS is a better game console. I played with both of them at the 2004 E3 debut, and was definitely impressed more with the Nintendo DS's capabilities than the capabilities of the Sony PSP.

While the case design of the DS is very clumsy in my opinion, the system offers more gameplay possibilities. This is the game designer's platform of choice for the future. You can as a designer create entirely new interactive interfaces using the touch screen and even integrate the game's menu options into this. In addition, the system's microphone allows for further interface value, and the Nintendo WiFi system further adds capabilities to enjoy your game with friends. (Finally, no more limiting link cable.)

PSP, don't get me wrong, is a fine unit. It is produced as the next step forward in the PlayStation legacy: useful in multiple situations, but nothing groundbreaking. The strategy is 'Give the gamer more of the same goodness that PS2 provided'. The case design is very sleek, the screen is very large and bright and crisp, but the games and the game console are exactly what you'd expect from Sony, and exactly what you've been playing for the past few years. More of the same is never a bad thing when those last few years have been filled with fun. However from a game design point of view, the PSP does not offer new options...just a new criteria. This is what makes gaming the same on PSP. (The new criteria is that on a portable console, you need to design a game that can accomodate the player having to unexpectedly be taken away from the game.)

Onto the features. The PSP has 4 plusses in its corner. Graphics, UMDs, MP3s, and the ability to be hacked. The fourth option is officially unintended functionality (though one begins to wonder...), so this feature we cannot credit the console's manufacturer. MP3s are a plus, but this feature is limited by the memory stick size. The value of this feature dwindles if you need to purchase a memory stick with a higher capacity to bring along all the songs you'd like. UMDs...Sony's continuing mistake is to create proprietary format media that only they can produce. It is only the popularity of the PSP itself which drives the continuance of UMD's existence. UMD is funcitonally inferior to DVD in every way except disk size. You get the movie, but none of the extras. Disk size is much inferior to the capacity of a standard DVD. And finally, they cost the same. Graphics are what makes the PSP shine then. While not PS2 quality, they do have a remarkable similarity to the PSP's older brother...and this is a good thing.

So the PSP total package comes in with mediocre mp3 and video support, a design flaw (hackable) that has become a feature, and what in essence is the PlayStation 2 experience boiled down into a portable form. Seperately, not very useful. Together, you get a device to replace all your other portable electronics...as long as you don't want anything special. If you do, you're best off getting an iPod, a portable DVD player, and one of those new slim PS2s, along with a portable screen. Or a Nintendo DS.

While Nintendo DS does not offer anything else, it is the focus on the machine that makes it worthwhile. Everything in the DS package is meant to enhance one thing: the options a player has to interact with his game. To the mobile gadgeteer, it still means he needs to lug around his portable DVD player and MP3 player, or his laptop. However, the quantity of things this gadgeteer carries around actually equals the quality of the components in this case. And for roughly the same price too!

Portable DVD player: $100
iPod Shuffle 1GB: $125
Nintendo DS: $130
----------------------------
Total: $355

Sony PSP $250
1GB Memory Stick: $80
----------------------------
Total: $330

...and that's before the game prices: DS games appear to be 5 bucks cheaper per game.

ah seems ds games are still about 10 to 15 pound on average cheaper than psp, I thought otherwise because the only titles on display in woolworths here for ds were sonic and a few others which just happened to be the more expensive games at about 30 to 35 pound, the same price as your average psp game, so yes indeed ds games are still a bit cheaper, but the gap isnt so bad as it was Smile

GameSpot had it right in their DS vs. PSP feature: They are completely different handhelds for different people.

The DS is a unique, completely original, fairly priced, game handheld.

The PSP is a trendy, powerful, multimedia gadget.

But for a person like me, I'd have to go with the DS. I mean, come on, Mario Kart online. How long have people been clamoring for that?
druidbloke
I come back to this thread after a long asence and have actually used both PSP and DS now, and I think I definitely made the right choice with the PSP, but they are very very different machines, and its like arguing which is best coffee or tea, something you cant agree on if you take a preference to one or the other, and I dont think the touch screen/stylus on the DS is a gimmick its great, it works very well and opens up a completely different way of interacting with the device I was impressed. The two screens are nice aswell and didnt get in the way of use.

You should know that there already is a Dragonball Z game out for the PSP...
DeltaOps101
I have a PSP, and i'm convinced that it was the right choice. It's just like having a media center wherever you go. Games, music, pictures, internet, movies, it has everything. I do admit that the games aren't the best, and it isn't the same to play a first person shooter on a handheld, but the PSP is still better that the DS in my view.
Hanpusu-kun
Still, is the PSP meant to be an gaming machine or an multimedia center where you have the ability to play games?

=/
Im not getting why they call it a game machine if everyone just watch movies and play homebrew on it =/
jefry66
I preferer the Nitendo DS, because the PSP get very fast dead pixels
celo
I vote in DS Wink
lefleygamer
I'm the one who's going to tell all of you PSP is the BEST!! and who the heck said it has lame games? PSP has a lot of realistic games people, it has METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER, GOD OF WAR GHOST OF SPARTA, PATAPON 3 and most of all MONSTER HUNTER PORTABLE3rd, most of psp games are japaneese made thats why it's has incredible graphics and mechanics but if your telling me most of psp games are low graphics like SILENT HILL ORGINS bit it has so beautiful mechanics and so challenging objectives and as we know most of gamers has a psp one of them is the most subscibe person in youtube uses PS3 so that's the reason of why psp is AWESOME and by mean SONY

PSP is better. I owned it, but now I have a JXD S7800B and play PSP games on it.

This is an old thread, but now that both consoles have had their run, I feel I can make a 20/20 answer. I have a DS, and I kind of regret getting one over a PSP. The library is VAST, no question about it, and it has the Gameboy Advance library to play with as well. The problem is, I didn't find that many games to play on it that I actually enjoyed. They were often just time killers and the ones that I really did play though, I've sort of forgotten about. I got bored of Pokemon games pretty quickly. Star Fox was fun, Zelda games are a work in progress (big backlog, you know?). I actually didn't care for Dragon Quest which doesn't help. Metroid Prime Hunters was fun, but not too memorable. Didn't like Mario Kart at all, but Super Mario 64 was a great trip down memory lane. I've played a ton of other games and they seriously weren't worth the time.

I don't particularly care for the "realistic" games on the PSP since they're often just watered down versions of what's on consoles (the Vita is a lot better in this regard). However, it was great for fighting games, had better RPGs (IMHO), and just managed a library that I found smaller, but higher quality than the DS. Owning a Vita now, I'm able to play some of those games, and I regret missing out on them. Then there's one other point...modding. My DS is modded and runs some old emulators. Before owning a decent smartphone, running emulators was one of the primary uses of my DS. And, there's no question, the PSP is a much better choice for emulation. In fact, it's probably the best handheld ever made for playing emulators up to 16 bit systems.

i guess psp is better for the graphics, in DS, you can actually see the pixel, i mean it is very noticeable.. And the graphics was not that cool, it is just like for kids.. Maybe there is a DS game that more fun than PSP, but i believe PSP games are much heavy loaded, more graphically intense.. Very Happy
crazsantatra
smartphone can easily emulate a PSP than DS, then if I have to choose between buying a PSP or DS... I'll buy a DS
