I own both of them and I got more use out of my PSP due to movie watching. However DS has more "fun" games like Mario, Mario Kart, and a few others. Also they are getting FF3 along with some other port games.<br><br>
I still use my PSP but like I said its for music and movies and thats about it.<br><br>
the PSP has better graphics, but how many games do you see out for the PSP, the answer is about 4. And the PSP movies are even harder to find these days. If you have played a DS, especially with games like New Super Mario Bros. you will know which one is the best. Hands down Nintendo DS FTW
Get this, it has "Dot Matrix with Stereo Sound"!:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v441/takeherthere/IMG_3980.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
And then transform it to this:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://perswww.kuleuven.be/~u0008708/images/boostergameboy.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">
I love a PSP and won't trade it for a DS, EVER. The screen is amazing. It just sucks you in and all of a sudden it's a big screen LCD. Then I look at the DS. Choppy graphics, pixilzed screen... Back to the PSP. <b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">HOMEBREW</span></b> That means you can do virtually [<i>anything</i>. Play Mario? Sure. Play DOOM? Sure. Stream music and videos from the internet? Of course. Go on overclock.net? Yep. There are of course more advantages, but well, it's againist the TOS here.<br><br><br>
Edit: Well if you want to poke your finger at a screen (or scratch it) and you may find that fun, then get the DS lite. (If you are getting a DS, don't get the orginal DS. The thing is bulker and pretty uncomfortable.
Try the GP2X. You can program Linux based software and use emulators on it, play video, etc. Just the same as what you can do with the PSP. And, you can find and/or attain them relatively inexpensively.
I would have to say a psp, espically with all the homebrew. About half a year ago I was at the same crossroads but then a freind of mine had a 2.0 psp he wasl selling with 2 games and 2 movies and everything for $120 so I nabbed it and I havn't even begun to let go of it sence. So yes my vote is for psp.<br><br>
If you want a glimpse of what the psp can do go here:<br><br>

Nope I have a 1.5 and it can emulate 2.71 which can play like ALL of the games out so far, plus I get the best homebrew firmware. All firmwares have homebrew (except 2.8/2.81) but 1.5 is considered the "golden" firmware followed by 2.71, but that's no issue because as long as you have 2.71 or lower you can downgrade to 1.5 and emulate 2.71...and soon once gta vcs is released 2.81.<br><br>
Ohh and the GP2X is really nice too but it would be ALL about homebrew with that since there are very VERY few comercial games for it, but it's nice nonetheless.

<div style="font-style:italic;">Cant you only get homebrew on the PSP if you get the first version of the firmware, like didn't they fix the firmware in the later PSPs so that you couldn't do homebrew?</div>
Well if you get the value pack (best buy still has them) it can do 100% homebrew. The Core PSP (aka the TA-082) need to use HEN-C to run basic homebrew. Homebrew 2.71 and up run homebrew via a image exploit
I have both, and personally the DS gets more attention. Simply because it has games which I actually enjoy. Not only does it have games that I enjoy, but it also has plenty of them!<br><br>
The PSP is good, but it's short battery life and the lack of exclusive games makes it a little boring. A handheld screen isn't that great for movies. The speakers are also a load of crap. If you buy a PSP you better be spending a damn lot on some headphones to get decent quality sound. Headphones are an absolute necessity.
