    so for ds all you really need is ds+r4+microsd...

    what about psp? i was thinking about getting one for xmas and was wondering what i need to start out getting so i can: watch movies off of memory stick, play game backups/roms (not asking where to get them btw...), and play emulators etc.

    also wat r the the premiere psp accessories brand?

    Hi!, talking about brands, Sony off course, but for Memory Sticks, Sandisk is a little cheaper (and equally good).

    For you to play movies off a MS: You need PSP Movie Converter, is a program that converts movies to the compatible PSP video formats you choose.

    For backups, you'll need another hacked PSP, a PSP Phat Battery, a Memory stick and an app called Pandora Battery Maker (and off course, a little Google on the subject).

    Best!

    False. Who the heck told you that, or where did you hear it?

    I think Sandisk cards are actually cheaper and have faster transfer rates. But the Sony cards are like 14 mb bigger than the Sandisk cards for some reason. I'm going with Sandisk, because of the price.

    that guy is wrong, PSP slim can be hacked, it just need a Datel Tool Slim (its a pandora baterry for PSP slim), a memory stick less then 4Gb and a Magic Stick program....for hacking details google it out
