    Having never played FF7, I was extremely underwhelmed by Crisis Core's storyline.
    Also, the prerendered cutscenes looked great. The world, on the other hand, looks like a standard PSP game. Dynasty warriors was smoother.

    Obviously no need to do that with flash carts.

    I say depends what you want to do. Both handhelds have their own pro's and con's

    I myself use homebrew more then actual games and I would say homebrewing on the NDS is better then PSP just because we need one flashcart and a microSD to get around booting methods whilst PSP is a little more complicated with firmware's and pandoras battery. But when it comes to sheer processing power, the PSP wins hands down. In terms of homebrew library, you can't go past the DS where most homebrewers take advantage of the touchscreen whilst the PSP has a better emulation list just because of its processing power.

    But in my opinion, NDS hands and it's taken me about 9 years to finally convert to the "light". (I was a sega master system/pc player at age 3, a GB at age 6, got a PS1 at about age 9, PS2 on launch and then got a GBA and the ball started rolling from there)

    Personally, I've never regretted getting my shiny gold Zelda-edition DS. If I could only have one handheld, it would DEFINITELY be the DS. The wireless play is great, and with a cyclo ds and moonshell, it does everything I want a psp to do and more.

    The graphics are a bit better on the psp, plus, you can't beat it for sports games, But for everything else, the DS rules.

    I don't regret having a DS although I miss my PSP Phat and wireless radio and XMB customizing. This was way before custom firmware, around the 2.xx tiff exploit loaders

    web browser
    RSS and RSS video feeds
    internet radio

    I sold my PSP and I don't miss it all. You can only play so many old-school emu games. And future UMD releases look bleak. Retail shelf space gets smaller every day.

    I have a nice mobile device so anything the PSP can do, it can do better.

    I prefer the DS mainly because its always been focused on games. Its not a "jack of all trades" that tries too hard to be something its not, and winds up failing in many catagories.

    I have both, both has pros and cons. But If I can only get one handheld system it would be PSP hands down. For much more homebrew apps & emus. Some said DS has more homebrew is seriously wrong , Aside from superior emulators platform PSP can do much much more than DS.. FTP CLient / FTP Server / WebServer / BitTorrent Client / Online Streaming Radio , WLAN Streaming Video Player , Comic Viewer etc.

    IF for retail games only I would still prefer PSP anyway.

    I seem to be in a sine-like periodic favoritism between my DS and PSP. On the one hand, my DS has great games and very innovative touch screen functions, as well as some great online titles that people actually play (Bleach, Advance Wars, etc.). Also, there's the first-party Nintendo games that almost always are a lot of fun.

    The PSP, on the other hand, has several emulators that run at 99.9%, as well as having a few of my favorite music albums on it. Plus, Disgaea is one of my all-time favorites, and having that ready to go at any time is something I would have killed for back in 2004 when I first got it. And of course there's Crisis Core.

    I have to say though that it's a good thing that the custom firmwares for the PSP came along. I was extremely close to selling my PSP in early 2007 because there simply wasn't any great games to play (that I hadn't already bought and beaten). After dropping some NES and GB goodness on the PSP, and seeing how the "scene" was producing some top-notch stuff, I held on to it, and I'm very glad I did.

    Anyway, I'm currently on the DS-lovin' due to The World Ends With You and Final Fantasy III. After that, I'll be checking out R-Type Command for the PSP.
