Nintendo's latest "Third Piller" handheld. The Nintendo DS features 64-bit graphics, better then the N64 due to the fact that it has more RAM, and a higher polygon count. This fact is proven in Super Mario 64 and 64 DS, Mario's nose in round in DS, but in 64 it's a bit more blocky. It features a built-in mic, wireless multiplayer, an LCD touch screen, a regular viewing screen, GBA cartrige playback ability, and online Wi-Fi gaming with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service(NWFC) which was released in November 2nd, 2005. The NWFC is slowly suprassing X-Box LIVE in the online gaming industry, in its first 7 weeks it amassed more people then X-Box LIVE had in 6 months, and at 4 months it reached 1 million players, and 28 million matches played, though the first two games have scratchy online play, Nintendo is slowly fixing it up. Animal Crossing DS fixed it with chat, Metroid Prime: Hunters will finalize the Wi-Fi service with voice chat, and a lobby, meaning you wont have to exchange friend codes online, you can do it via DS. Soon, the DS's next installment will be released, the Nintendo DS Lite, though some people may groan at the thought, it fixes all of the problems the first one had, it is smaller, 2/3 the weight, a 4x brighter screen, and an apple-style look. They also have managed to place the buttons in a comfier position, along with a larger stylus, stronger screen, and easier portabilty overall. On a final note, the Nintendo DS has become the fastest selling gaming console or handheld to ever be sold, worldwide it has sold more then the PSP, truely clenching victory. One of Nintendo's most successful consoles/handhelds.

Nintendo dual-screen. Something I can't wait to get. Nintendo's latest portable system is seperate from the gameboy series.

At a first look, the DS' dual screen just seems like a feature. A good feature is one that has something to do with improving gameplay, which the touch screen does. The psp however, is trying to beat nintendo with better graphics and dvd, making the DS the instant winner. Why? Because the DS is focusing on making fun games and revolutionizing games. The PSP is a mobile phone minus the calling people.

Also, the DS is cheaper then PSP and so are the games. The DS consumes less battery power then the PSP.
The DS is an interesting console with fun games.

A solid game system with great games and little added features that make it a close competitor for PSP. Although some whiny little lifeless PSP fans act like its just an N64 with a touchscreen, it is much better than it gets credit for. As an owner of a PSP and a DS I have to say that I play my DS much more. It's much for social, since it has single card download play and pictochat. The games (well, most of them) are actually fun and not just about blood and gore like so many PSP games. And now, DS can play Movies, mp3s, and all that great stuff, so it's really an equal to PSP, if not better.
Nintendo DS rocks out with its cock out.

Nintendo's latest handheld, released in too-soon-after-the-last-one tradition, a practice that Nintendo has become quite fond of. Shortly following the release of the Gameboy Advance SP, which was released just long enough after its original to double Nintendo's profits as gamers try and get the new one of what they already have, it seems as if Nintendo has no patience anymore and is releasing new handhelds like crazy, giving consumers just enough time to buy one console, then coming out with a new, slightly better version every few months.

The DS features two screens, one being a touch screen. This feature seems gimicky at first, but is quite interesting. Nintendo also brags that there is a place for the stylus, however as long as there have been devices with styluses, there have been places for the stylus. Even a spiral notepad has a place for the pen.
The DS is a Gamer's palm pilot, which brings up the fact that yet another version of the console is coming out with Palm software. Whoever is seen with a DS is immediately a pimp and may attract women. However, the fact remains that Nintendo is primarily child oriented in its games, and more grown up gamers may want to move on to the PSP, which, though lacking the sex appeal and touch screen pimpness of the DS, has much better graphics and can play movies. Though Nintendo is trying like hell to create some kind of compressed file format to sneak movies into it, the PSP hit the ground running.
The Nintendo DS is cooler than I thought it would be.

A console made by Nintendo hated by Sony fanboys for "making games geared for children" and having "dated hardware" which is utter bullshit. While the PSP (Sony's handheld) has many features that the DS doesn't have (but can be added through accessories), they are all bullshit you don't need. Everyone already owns a MP3 player that actually fits in our pockets, why the fuck would we want a bigger one? The UMD format used for watching movies is dead, so good luck with that. The Nintendo DS has a big library of cool games, where you can kill zombies, solve murder cases, play Sudoku, play great RPG's, and so much more. The graphics are mainly 2D, but the DS can do last wave N64-like 3D too.

The PSP also has good games, even though Nintendo fanboys say otherwise, and if the price wasn't so steep, it would match the DS. The graphics of the PSP are shitty 3D, last wave PS1 to first wave PS2, and has many defects (flying UMD's, disk read errors, short battery life, no refunds for a screen with dead pixels etc etc., but it seems the newer shipments have less of these defects), and is still being raped in sales by the DS Lite.

The PSP is a good purchase if you have the money, because of the many good original games, but if you want to make the most out of your money, the DS Lite is what you want. If you have the money I recommend both.

Me: Shut up idiot, the PSP does have great games on it, too bad there are so many rehashes of old games on it, but the original games rock.

Sony fanboy: Look! I can play MP3's, watch movies, and browse the internet! LOL

Me: I thought you had a MP3 player and computer for that? Dumbass. The UMD format is dead, so say bye to your movies. Good luck finding wireless access points to connect to the internet. Idiot.
