    that depends on what you like?

    personally i will still go for DSL
    just because it provides me variety of games [​IMG]

    if you fancy top notch graphic over the variety of games that DS is offering
    then go for PSP

    I much prefer my PSP over my DS because of the far better graphics it offers as well as the PSP has much more features than the DS Lite and an updateable firmware. The only benefit I really see is the far larger game library of the DS in comparison to the PSP.

    I agree...also, it's kinda pointless to ask such question on Nintendo dedicated forum, and especially in NDS section..You won't get objective opinion in this.

    In the end, it all comes to what you like better....

    If you are a what they call "hardcore gamer" PSP is more suitable for you. If you just play whatever good games that come your way, the DS is definitely your thing.

    PSP:
    -Good graphics
    -More "Hardcore" games
    -Larger display screen than DS.
    -Supports Memory Cards without additional add-ons (e.g flashcarts)
    -Analog Stick
    -Its 2000? Get it nao!

    DS:
    -Innovation (Touch Screen)
    -Nice and glossy
    -Two screens
    -Has a variety of good games
    -Can have classics like Mario from our very own Miyamoto-san and Nintendo
    -2 weeks, newer than the PSP

    The PSP...if only because as time goes on it's going to get harder and harder to get a CFW'able PSP and if you pick one up now you certainly won't regret it. You'll be able to get flash cart compatible DSL's for the foreseeable future so theirs no kind of urgency.

    PSP can emulate GBA without slot 2 (hell it doesn't even have the slots) You can play your RPGs and Platformrs there [​IMG]

    But I'm biased against PSP fanboys just to let you know [​IMG]

    Editr: You want a list of good rpgs? I just need sometime to gather some infos [​IMG] Or theres Hadrian [​IMG]

    This.

    RPGs? It's got plenty of them. Sidescrollers? Maybe not so much.

    I mean the DSls price new is probably going to drop nearing Christmas, so just pick one up then along with a flashcart.

    The r4 is fucked up. Its out of production, the company is gone.

    Wait don't you already have a DS? You don't use flashcarts? Wow.

    And FFIV is kinda good considering its a classic ported into 3d, KH is good too.

    I'm making up a notable RPG list now, you want it?

    as mentioned r4 is dead~!
    you can easily get other flash card like acekard, cyclo, scdsone which are pretty cool

    well seriously.. one downside of DS rpg is the playability~!
    the game time is usually shorter~!

    Game time shorter but theres a nice thing about all games from all consoles, its called "replayability" [​IMG]

    Actually, When I look at the list most of them are pretty much known or hyped by E3 already so if you aren't happy with the RPGs now then consider the change, though PSP has some nice fighting games [​IMG]

    And try commenting at the kickgaming contest if you haven't, you may get a new cart:D

    a flash card breaking down on you? i guess thats your luck [​IMG]
    so far *touch wood* my flash cards are still working fine~!

    as for cobalt i have no idea [​IMG]
    you can always replace with a new casing/housing [​IMG]
