2. Play Station Portable, Sony's new high-definition graphic portable gaming system based on the PS2. It has (personally) some of the best graphics ever to be made in a hand held. Like the PS2, it uses discs (on a much smaller scale).
Person 1: FUCK PSP IS SVCKS LIKE HELL BECAUSE COREL MADE IT!
Person 2: YEAH I KNOW PSP IS BULLSHIT!
Nerd : Sorry, but I disagree. This superior program allows you to create the most delicately detailed pictures, and it only costs $200!
Person 1: FUCK YOUR ASSHOLE.
Person 1: MA PSP WHOOPS YOU DS'S ASSHOLE!
Person 2: NO MY DS WHIPS YOUR PSP'S ASSHOLE!
Nerd : I agree with person two. My Dual Screen Liquid Crystal Diode gaming system is far superior to your Play Station Gaming system.
Person 1: NO SHUT UP FUCKER!
Person 2: The NERD'S RIGHT!

Unique Touch Screen
Unique 2nd screen
Cheap (not much of a pro)
messaging with your own handwriting (can include pictures)
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)
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
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
If you use the homebrew PMP MOD AVC player you can record watchable VCD quality video and audio at 2 megabytes per recorded minute (256kbps) as opposed to a heck of a lot more wasted space (768Kbps) with the player Sony gives you.
The PSP ran every NES game I could throw at it, can emulate a Sega Genesis with frameskip 1, runs a full speed gameboy original, a SNES that tears the picture a little, a third-speed Amiga 500 (best computer ever made IMHO), and you can get an MP3 player with an oscilloscope for the easily amused. It's also an infrared remote control. Since when did your "Update" ever give you the ability to zap people's TVs while it looks like you're just playing a game?
And you can control your PC's mouse, or check on a long download that your PC's doing from the kitchen.
It has a shitty, half-baked mp3 and video interface, and you're forced to buy expensive memory sticks in order to play them. Also, the battery life is 3-6 hours, and the loading times are horrible.
Me: Holy shit dude how much did you spend?
Moron: Only about $500
Me: *smacks him in the head*
