Speaking as a gamer and someone who although they have all game consoles despises Sony with a passion, I have to say that the PSP rocks.
I have the DS, but was very disappointed with it. All this time and still no real hardcore game to be found. The only one that interested me was Mario
DS, but it is just a rehash of Mario 64...big deal.
So far, with my PSP, I have downloaded 27 MP3s to the memory card, played Darkstalkers chronicle in Ad-hoc mode with a friend (who kicked my butt with
Bishamon) and have been playing Twisted Metal over my own Wi-Fi hotspot. (Wireless modems do indeed kick butt)
The DS just doesn't have the library that the PSP has right now...and the PSP has been out for only a brief time. Sure, the Ds is getting a
castlevania game as well as a Metroid FPS...but those aren't out yet and the PSP is already taking up large chunks of my free time.
Even took the thing to a company casino trip a couple sundays ago. Used it as an ipod-type device. It only plays MP3s, but really, who has their music
in .wma format anyway?
Lastly, every in the gaming industry is aware of how poorly the sell-through rate on DS software has been. Read the gaming magazines...it's quite a
hot topic. Even Nintendo admitted that their software lineup for the Ds is weak...which is why a true succesor to the Gameboy Advance is on the
horizon. From the looks of it, the DS may end up being another "Virtual boy".
