    In all seriousness, neither the PSP or DS is superior to its counterpart. They have their strengths and weaknesses afterall, with the PSP having powerful specifications and beautiful games and the DS having a touch screen (innovative gameplay) and fun games, just to name a few.

    What makes a handheld system good?

    In my opinion, that would be good portability and good battery life. Being a handheld system, developers developed the consoles with portability in mind. If the system has poor portability, it fails as a handheld system. Its like carrying a PS2 around with a small LCD display; it makes no sense and is far from being sensibly portable.

    Likewise, a good battery life defines portability. It makes no sense to carry a "portable" console with an hours worth of battery life. You'll end up carrying the charger and extra batteries, ultimately defeating the meaning of "portable".

    I would touch on games, but that would be referring to "handheld gaming systems" and not what the TC has mentioned in his first post.

    EDIT: Grammar

    The main difference is that you will still be using your DS Lite after 2 weeks.

    This is the first type of topic vs the 2 on GBATemp(I searched).Also, I really feel like the DS is a much more worthwhile deal than the PSP(if you were to ask the origional creator of this topic) simply b/c the PSP isn't creating enough games that are appealing to everyone rather than just sports fanitics. I can only see Metal Gear, God of War, and the Final Fantasies as their gaming franchise outside the madden games.

    Well, I prefer NDS, but I wouldn't mind getting a PSP, and hack it to play PS1 games..
    It's just too expensive for me at the time, because I have to earn money myself..But if I get the chance, I'll be getting one for sure..

    My vote goes for NDS, but I really don't think PSP is a bad console (but many PSP owners are bad people) [​IMG]

    What's wrong with ps3 now?

    ontopic: both are good. But i sold my ds and kept psp to get ps3. So maybe i prefer more psp, because of it's multimedia capabilities and homebrew scene of course..

    sigh......

    Definitely the DS. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you ask a PSP player what their favorite PSP game is, they'll just look dumbstruck.

    The PSP lovers always say "It has better graphics, and games. The DS has shitty graphics, and no games".

    That really annoys me. I saw this idiot who thought the PSP was godly, while the DS was shit. He didn't know about flashkarts, but when someone told him, he kept saying that was bullshit, and called the guy who gave the info a "Kid" even though he was the same age as him. The guy also thought Memory stick Duo were the only memory sticks available, and said Micro sd cards are fake.

    I laughed my ass off.

    Back on topic, the DS has a much bigger library, and that is enough to win my vote.

    Not really, seeing as the PSP is superior to the DS in terms of emulation. Frikking PS1 and SNES which work perfectly should keep a normal busy for several years.
    Nevermind the PSP's liberry is made up of ports and remakes.
    Also, there's just something awesome about having a PSP..

    The PSP gets my vote. SO many hours wasted on Disgaea [​IMG]
