Advantages of psp/ds... Compared

PSP PROS:

Built in Digital Photo Viewer
Built in Movie Player
Built in Web Browser
Download many free flash apps/games
Amazing Graphics
Powerfull Games

DS Pros:
Unique Touch Screen
Unique 2nd screen
Cheap (not much of a pro)
messaging with your own handwriting (can include pictures)

PSP Cons:
shorter battery life (due to brighter screen, louder volume, more graphical games, more powerful games... to increase time lower brightness, volume etc)
expensive (if you have the money its easily worth it)
Load Times (due to more advanced games etc....but extra time really isnt noticible)

DS Cons:
Worse Graphics (when using basic 3D graphics it goes pixelated/fuzzy/blurred etc, where as most psp games use 3D all the time)
More childish games (not much of a con...depends on what you prefer...just going from my age)

I posted this to try preventing fan boys making useless comments about both systems and i am listing what i know about consoles)
Overall I prefer PSP but of course it mainly depends on your personal preference

To help

Get PSP if:
You want a full media player in your pocket
You love extra features (flash, internet)
You want better looking games, more AI, more physics etc (better games)

Get DS if:
You want more innovative in games (not saying its bad but it does get boring useing stylus sometimes, but still a great feature)
You want a portable now and cant afford psp
PSP is good, DS is good

PSP
A promising handheld manufactured by Sony which has fallen relatively short of expectations, due to numerous fundamental flaws and a lacklustre games catalogue. Beyond the slick, glossy look and expansive but half-baked media capabilities, lies a surface which attracts finger oils like an oxy pad and demands more care than a mentally-deficient infant, poor memory options with the outrageously expensive 'memory duo stick', a piss-poor battery life, which despite being dependent on how graphically intensive a game is, is still unacceptably low, and a software catalogue which comprises of a plethora of ports and rehashes.

Regardless, it has phenomenal technical capabilities and better titles are further down the line, such as Exit.

One of its trademark symbols is reflective of its functions, which include pictures, movies, music and most importantly, games. In addition, it has its own web browser and frequent firmware updates add various new features, such as support for different file formats.
Open-minded gamer: It's difficult for me to say a whole lot of positive things about the PSP at this moment in time, but eventually Sony will iron out these first-generation flaws and we'll see a better range of games.

Both sony and nintendo fans are acting ridiculous. Ds and psp are both wonderful systems, equally revolutionary in their own way, as well as they both have their own faults. Here we go:

Cost: The DS is an incredible low price as we would expect from Nintendo. Yes, the psp is expensive, but considering it has dvd capabilities and other functions, you cant expect it to cost as much as a DS.

Controls/size: Both of these systems were originally flawed in this category. The ds was bulky and fragile, but the newly released ds lite fixed these problems. As for the psps poor control and size...its Sonys first handheld, give them a break. And the low battery, why the hell would you play for 6 hours straight anyway??

Games: I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF PEOPLE SAYING THE DS IS A KIDDY SYSTEM! It is indeed not, they are quality games, that were actually created with care and knowledge of what was going on. The graphics are revolutionary for a handheld. The psp has great games, and slightly better graphics, but graphics do not matter, gameplay does, so its a plus.

In conclusion: Both systems are revolutionary with their graphics, capability, and design. Neither one is better than the other, as their pros and cons even each other out. By bashing because of simple factors only shows you have nothing better to do
I prefer ds, but the psp is great as well.
Hey, I love the psp, but I think Ill give the ds a shot.

PSP
short for playstation portable, it is a portable gaming system recently made by sony entertainment in an effort to sweep the legs of nintendo out from under them. at its release the psp said to play games, music, and movies on one system. initially the idea seemed good, but many people began to realize the fatal flaws that Sony had made, including it's proprietary UMD discs for games and movies, a short battery life, bad coding. but above all the biggest mistake for sony was that honestly all they had done recreate the laptop computer, which has done everything the PSP does for the last 3 years.
UMD's cost about the same as a DVD, but can only be used on the PSP, while the DVD can be used by anything with a dvd drive on it.
Sony released for mandatory firmware updates in the first six months to prevent hacking.
the best selling games for the playstation pointless have been racers or puzzle games.

The Playstation Portable, a great system.
The PSP is a handheld game system developed by Sony. It can display excelent graphics, and the 1. generation of PSP games looks as good as the 1. generation of PS2 games.

Many Nintendo fanboys criticises the PSP because it has PS2 ports, low battery life, and because of it's price. The DS, however, has rehashes and ports of Mario Games, which can be played on Nintendo 64 and GC with better graphics, it does not have support for GPS, or Eye-Toy, and it can not play movies, nor MP3s. The PSP is also much, much more powerfull than the DS, and uses 1.8 GB UMDs, the DS uses memory sticks on maximum 64 MB. All this makes it more reasonably priced than the DS. Many Nintendo fanboys ignores this, since they can't find any arguments against it.

The PSP has exclusive games within well known, and classic franchises, such as GTA: LCS, GTA: VCS, Daxter, Tekken: DR, etc.

The PSP vs. DS debate, is more or less stupid, like all the other fanboy wars.
