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.
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
Hey, I love the psp, but I think Ill give the ds a shot.
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.
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.
