PSP or DSi

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Okay, I know people are gonna tell me to wait for the PSP Vita, but I dont want to spend $200 on a handheld console. So I am trying to decide between the PSP Go and the DSi.

I like the PSP Go for its size, it can slide down and be very compact, thats the main reason as to why I am not looking at the 2000 or 3000.

I have a feeling I'll like the PSP games more, but I wouldn't mind playing Pokemon Black/white on the DSi.

So what would be the best choice here?

Thanks for the help.

I only played around with the 3D for like 10 minutes, but I saw it had apps on it. My cousin had nextflix app on his 3d so Im pretty sure it is more than just another dsi with 3d feature

the graphics are like 10x better. 3ds is like 2x the power of the psp so game look pretty good on it. Mario Kart looks just like it does on the wii.
the 3D is cool, but you can turn it off. Some times I'll play with 3d but not always.

PSP games are mostly horrible. They look nice, but they aren't at all designed for mobile use. The only time you'll ever feel like playing your PSP is at home, in which case you'll likely end up on your PC or a console playing the version of the game that isn't cut down.

Everyone I know that has a PSP has it sitting in their room collecting dust. Oddly enough the only real use for the PSP is as a Nintendo emulator.

Pretty much this.

PSP is awesome on the go and at home, but I wouldn't recommend the Go unless you really want the games that you know are on PSN. If you think the games are better on PSP just by looking at them you are probably right... I hated the DS library. I had a Go it was really nice, and super sexy... but yeah not being able to play most PSP games is a pretty big draw back.

I'd still say save for a Vita or 3DS, but hey you made it clear you don't want to do that.

I would go for a PSP which has a nice selection of games but I'm not sure how easy it is to mod the new PSP's. The old ones (Fat or PSP1000's were great for custom firmware) I heard you can't do that for PSP3000's Slim. And as far as Vita's or Go's, I have no idea.

My little sis has a 3DS and its only good for zelda or mario. There's not too many choices of games out there.

Yeah, that and Resident Evil Revelations. But if Revelations wasn't out there would be 0 games on 3DS that I am actually interested in, and I own one.
