    Wow, the DSi has not been out that long and there are already rumors of a new DS. I must say I am surprised.

    The bolded statement is completely false, the DS is beating the PSP hands down but both are good systems that have their pros and cons. Also caps, proper grammar, and punctuation on the bolded statement, didn't your English Teacher teach you anything.

    +1 to Hop. Spend it wisely.

    The DSi beat the PSP in Japan, despite it being a higher price and the price cuts put on the latest PSP model. And the PSP Go is a gigantic loss. No one in their right mind will spend almost $300 on a shitty device that's not even compatible with your old PSP games. It's one of the dumbest marketing decisions I've seen in a long time.

    The fact is that you could easily buy a PS3 for the price of a PSP Go, or close to that. And the fact that the PSP Go doesn't have access to the full library of original PSP games and the fact that it's a hell of a lot more delicate than other PSP models really makes it a terrible move on Sony's part.

    You still got ripped off because you could have bought a used PSP-3000 for $110-$120 or a new one for $150 and used the extra money for games and if you are switching to Digital Distribution only like myself to save even more money, it's 100% possible to do so on any PSP, just get a bigger memory stick.

    That's still under the price point of the PSP Go in the end.

    I have a 32 GB that costs $110 and if you shop around online you can find a 16 GB for less than $100. Best Buy and such are overcharging pretty badly.

    I would, if it saves me $50. Just back up your saves on your PC.
