DS or PSP for what I like?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I was contemplating a PSP Slim or DS Lite as I am looking for something portable that would let me game and maybe more. Any suggestions are welcome.

Here are games I traditionally like to play:

Games I know I like:

Lumines
Wipeout
Tetris DS
Brain Age

Games I would like to try:

Patapon
Ace Justice Series
Crisis Core
God of War Chains of Olympus
The World Ends with You
Elite Beat Agents
Meteos
Polarium
Advance Wars Dual Strike

In this debate it depends on how often your going to be playing the system, they both have great games, if you want to sit down and play a portable system for long periods of time i say go with PSP, since it has multiple 10 hour + games and access to most ps1 titles as well. DS has a multitude of games, there really is something for everyone on the DS. The majority of games on it are for quick gaming fixes, however it does have some really good games as well like: the castlevania series, metroid, etc. So really its up to you they are both wonderful systems. My personal opinion is for PSP however, since i use it as an mp3 player, emulator for my old snes and nes games, and to watch movies.

I decided on the ds cause there are so many games to choose from and its easy to find used games for cheap. I also picked up one of those flash cartridges with a 2gb sd card

psp is so much better than ds, has more capabilites like internet browser, movies and music, plus it comes out with more frequent updates. If u hack ur psp to a custom firmware there are endless posibilities on wat u can do, unlike on the ds

This may be true... but, I don't plan on watching movies with my PSP as when I watch a movie it will be on a TV or at a Theater. As far as hacking and putting games on it.... well, I really don't care to play most of the old school NES games, etc.... I like more original or modern games... perhaps a few classics, but not a lot. When it comes to playing music I rarely listen to music via MP3 players and the like and when I do it will probably be something like the Zune so I can zone out and what not. And with a Zune and similar stuff you can play movies and see pictures. Thus the only media capability I may concern myself with is the fact that I have a PS3 and I guarantee you I won't use it as a controller. Internet is also slow and clunky on a PSP though a nice edition. Skype is nice too if you have Wifi handy. Then again I don't know many with Skype, and if I do it will probably be on a computer of sorts.

In the end it really comes down to gaming for the PSP though added stuff through my PS3 is nice.

Since you dont really care about having a portable media center, then its really up to you on what type of games you want to play. PSP has great titles like God of War, Crisis Core, Twisted Metal, Metal Gear Solid, Tekken, Street fighter, An amazing Rendition of Burnout and has some great multiplayer games like Socom fire team bravo. The DS has Mario, Zelda, Warioware, A really great multiplayer game in Metroid: Prime hunters, Mario kart, And my personal favorite series Castlevania. PSP has Castlevania as well but its not the same quality. (unless you count the over a decade old SoTN, thats still my favorite game). They are both really great systems. I no longer have my DS as it got stolen, but MarioKart on WiFi was really fun. Since you have a PS3 though, i would go with the PSP just for all the additional things that come available with both systems. Remote play FTW!

I have the feeling I can't go wrong... it's just every time I look at the PSP price ($199 for bundles) I feel like I could buy a Wii (lol).

Yeah lol i would have you get a DS or a PSP over a Wii tho lol. They are both great its pretty much Cratos vs Mario, Snake vs Samus, Cloud vs Link, and Mario kart vs any 3d racer they are both amazing just go with what you like.
