Nope, I don't own one. And probably never will.

SNES emulation? I only know one person who owns a PSP and that's why he keeps it... though he tells me once Super Metroid comes out on Wii's Virtual Console he's gonna get rid of his PSP.

I have a DS

Both the DS and PSP seem rather disapointing, so I never picked up either.

I don't have one.

However, I'd say about 80% of the guys in my neighborhood have PSPs. It seems to be the new fad at our school. Some of them don't even have games, they just use them for the music and movies.

Meh.

I still play my GBA, the DS and PSP look so dull. My brother bought a DS and I gave it a try. The touch screen is just annoying....

^^ Fail.

Anyway, I don't think I'd ever get it. It's okay as a game machine and okay as a media player, but the memory is just so ridiculously expensive. The battery life is reportedly the suck and if I got it, I'd probably only get Lumines.

I have a DS. But I'm not thrilled about it, it's funny, but I won't go running around on forums going "OMG LOL I GOTS DS IT RULES LOLLOLOLOL!!!!!1"

Yeah I have one and the kool thing is I did get it. My friend got it for me for christmas. I'm absoultly loving it. I've got tons of games already. Infact I just picked up Tekken Dark Resurection. I'm really waiting for Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to come out here in New Zealand. But I really love my psp. Its great. Not perfect but nearly. And to TiE23 Yeah the memory is expencive depending on how big you want it but thats the same with a pc and the battery life was just a rumor. I play for hours and my battery hardly loses juice.

@ tyrone333: Don't worry, the PSP is doing well for itself, in fact it's selling just as well as the PS3 and PS2 was in its first 130something weeks. But the thing is, the PSP isn't the king of the handheld market cause the DS is selling twice as more units as the PSP and has a wider variety of games that all kinds of people want.

The PSP is a great jack of all trades... in a way... but the problems that introduces is that it becomes too complicated for most people. The only people I've ever known to own a PSP are teens who want to be the coolest and tech geeks. Though I notice that the tech geeks I know sell their PSP after awhile when they realise it's not that good a multimedia device.

The fact is, while the PSP can play movies and music and does all these neat things, people quickly realise that other devices can do it better. And a lot of my friends realised pretty quickly that their PS2's and Xbox360s are better sources for the kind of games the PSP tries to sell them. Those who bought PSPs sold them and bought a DS lite because they got different kinds of games that they couldn't play on their home consoles. It's also a case of having more quality games to play.

I'm not saying the PSP absolutely sucks, personally I'd buy a PS2 over a PSP and I own a DS lite and a tonne of DS games among other things... but I will say that the PSP was a good first try for Sony, they actually survived against Nintendo. No one has ever done that in the past.

@ Bomberman65: I play my DS lite for days and the battery hardly loses any juice. That's the key difference when you actually do compare battery life.

True but still I've had my psp for ages and I love it. I guess it's not whats better its just what people like. People can say the DS is better or the PSP is better. Wrong. They both have their pros and cons and its just what people like. Too people who say one is better than the other, Grow up its just a handheld if someone likes the other don't try to change their mind. I mean my friend has a DS and I have a PSP and I don't want a DS and my friend doesn't want a PSP. And I'm kool with that I mean i'm bummed I can't play PSP games with him but he wanted a DS not a PSP and I'm not forceing him to get the other. So I'm only into the console wars not the handhelds but I hate fanboys. Fanboyes get a life.

PSP: It plays games too.

There's only one real PSP game I would want, and that's Power Stone Collection. Other than that, my DS is just perfect for me

@ Bomberman65: Okay. I'd like to point something out. You completely missed the entire point of my post and have gone off on a pointless rant.

I'll clear this up for you. Everything I said in my previous post wasn't designed to convert people into buying a DS lite and it wasn't designed to put down people who had bought a PSP in the first place.

What I was stating was what seems to be the general trend that is occurring on a worldwide scale in terms of what propels the success of the DS and the PSP. And please, actually READ my post properly since I did say the PSP is doing very well for itself and that unlike every other handheld that has challenged Nintendo in the past, it has survived and is thriving.

I was also pointing out some points as to why the PSP isn't beating the DS at the moment. And yes, while some things I said in my post had an air of negativity around it, it wasn't a case making up s*** just to make the DS sound better.

Like I said, I'm just stating what has propelled these two handhelds so far in the worldwide market. Like you said, both have pros and cons, and these pros and cons are exactly why some choose to avoid either system or buy one and not the other, yada, yada.


To make it as simple as possible for you. I think the PSP could've taken Nintendo off of the top the handheld ladder, it's just that Sony had no experience as to what makes a good handheld better than it could be. I'm sure the PSP2 will give Nintendo a run for its money, and personally I hope it does cause competition is a great thing to have between companies.

Yeah sorry about that man. My bad. But yeah well the PSP has just started out I wouldn't be suprised if the PSP rises in sales as much as the DS in time. But we'll see its only just started out. And again sorry about before.

Don't worry about it. After I posted my post I asked Darth Moeller if it was diplomatic enough cause I was worried people would take it the wrong way XD

EDIT: In terms of how the PSP and DS are doing, the PSP has some decent games out so far, but the DS has such a wider appeal that puts it so far ahead, I can't honestly see it matching the DS in the future at all.

But like I said before, the PSP is doing just as well as the PS2 is if you align their launch dates and watch the sales numbers per week... well, actually you CAN do that lol.

http://www.vgchartz.com/hwcomps.php fiddle around with this to see how things are going.

@ tyrone333: Can I ask... have you actually looked at the kind of games the DS has? I mean, I"m well aware of the view most people have that Nintendo is just for kids. Sure the DS has Nintendogs, but it also has Metroid Prime Hunters, Final Fantasy III and more. It's funny because the types of games you've mentioned are the kind of games people like to play on the DS too.

*looks around* Does anyone really consider the "Nintendo = for kids" arguement to be valid anymore?


EDIT: And don't worry, this isn't going to degenerate into a war But this is a forum, it's more than just "I have a PSP too" usually people like to talk a little more and discuss rather than post short messages like a chatroom.

Not to mention Typing Of The Dead, as well as Hotel Dusk. An on rails House Of The Dead style shooter and basically an interactive novel, I wouldn't call those kids games. And you can call Pokemon a kids game all you want, but I've seen more adults playing the new Pokemon games than kids. We had a little mini tournament in my Precalc class because like 6 people had the game and wanted to see who was the best. it was 4 seniors and 2 juniors doing it

Especially with Manhunt 2 coming out on the Wii, I just can't call Nintendo kiddy.

I own both a DS and a PSP. They each have their strengths and weaknesses - and plenty of good games for anyone who is interested in most genres.

If you head to GamerDad's review archive you'll see that I have ~37 DS reviews and ~75 PSP reviews up there. I also have a ~monthly article I write for RPGWatch that covers role-playing games on handhelds. The latest one is here.

While the RPG selection has not been up to GBA snuff yet, recent additions like "Izuna" and "Etrian Odyssey" on the DS have been very welcome. Oh - and for anyone who thinks the DS is kiddy, you should see magazine editors and publishers getting old-school giddy over Etrian Odyssey at the moment!

I know about Dragon Quest IX and FF XII RW, but my point is that by the end of the first GBA year we had Golden Sun and Tactics Ogre and Shining Soul ... and the DS had Lunar Dragon Song. Things are much better now - Etrian Odyssey in particular is brilliant (and killer hard!)

wow, txa is back? Sweet.

I've played with a PSP and I kinda want one. I like the extra things you can do with it, like put vids on it etc. I've seen you can get one used for about 120-150USD here. Games I honestly don't care about that much. I might get Lumines for it though.

I have one of those fancy Silver import PSPs from Japan, gonna need a new mobo however as firmware is 3.10 (no homebrew ) - i had a white one before that until it broke on me that was fully able to play emulation, ps1 games and emulators. Games are good for the PSP and are getting better everyday, i think the PSP has a bright future.
