    Wich is the best? A hack PSP or a DS with an R4 In terms of homebrews.
    FOr example:
    -for chatting
    -for navigating with a browser
    -for listen to music
    -for watching videos (excluding the fact that the psp screen is panoramic and better than the psp)
    -for emulating nes, supernes, and n64 games
    -for homebrew games
    -etc.

    PD.:My brother has a hacked psp, and I personally don't like the games. I prefer ds games, but im kind of worried about the homebrews and other functions.
    PD2:My apologies for my bad english.

    Yeah PSP wins that duell. It's just the more powerful handheld, and the more resources, the more creativity you can turn into a program [​IMG]

    though, Phidias and Colors would suck on PSP, just as every other homebrew that works because of the Stylus.

    Observe the above changes from your original post.

    I also believe that PSP wins due to the fact that it's much more powerful.


    Edit: Beaten to it...

    I only bought my PSP for emulators, and homebrew, but I prefer my DS because of the massive amounts of games for it.

    Chatting: NDS, touch screen is WAY better.
    Navigating with a browser: PSP, the NDS ones just aren't as good as the PSP one.
    Listen to Music: PSP.
    Watching videos: PSP.
    Emulation: PSP.
    Homebrew Games: Depends.
    Etc: DS.

    Remember that games on PSP mostly suck. It's only good for emulating and these other things.

    -for chatting

    I suppose the DS for that one as you can use the touch screen keyboard rather than having to use buttons to type, beup is probably the best software to demonstrate this

    -for navigating with a browser


    Well the PSP has more RAM so you can load web pages much faster than on a DS, but if you wanted to scroll around the screen it would probably be easier with the stylus

    -for listen to music

    I'd say it's a draw, even though you don't need to install any extra programs on a PSP in order to play music, if you use LMP-ng on the DS it's dead easy to navigate and stuff, and I personally love it!

    -for watching videos (excluding the fact that the psp screen is panoramic and better than the psp)

    It depends on the flash cart, I know that we're specifically talking about the R4 but I've never owned one, I myself own a G6 real and a DS TT, the G6 has video playback capability (in DPG format) but for the DS TT you have to download moonshell, which doesn't play videos so well (it distorts the quality) so if it has built in video playback capabilities, then its the same as PSP I'd say, but if you need to download moonshell for it, then PSP wins

    -for emulating nes, supernes, and n64 games

    I'd say the PSP wins hands down here, it's just so much more powerful, the DS can emulate only a handful of SNES games whereas the PSP can emulate every PS1 game and can slowly emulate some N64 games

    -for homebrew games

    I'm not familiar with the PSP homebrew games library so I won't comment on that one, but as far as DS homebrew games go, i've never really seen one that impresses me (except for Whee!DS2)

    The DS has MUCH better games. The PSP has barely any good games (I'd say below 10), but the games have very good graphics. Also, homebrew/multimedia wise, the PSP is much better than the DS. It's able to play SNES/NES/GB/GBC/GBA/Sega consoles, etc. Plays excellent audio and video, has some amazing homerew.

    In my list, there's 15. Still, the DS does have a much bigger library. And as for the rest of the stuff you said, it's very true.

    The PSP is dying as sony makes way for the PSP 2, but it is an excellent platform for homebrew due to it's sheer power, ease to code for in comparison to the DS, and a number of other factors.

    Just thought I'd go more in-depth about my explanations, since I've had both a PSP Phat and Slim, as well as a DS Phat and Lite. I also prefer portable gaming instead of console gaming, and I've been a fan of handhelds ever since the GB.

    There's a rumor (well, I guess it's not anymore since pparently there's pictures of the thing...) going around about a new series in the PSP models, a PSP-3000. People are just calling it PSP2 because we don't know what it is yet.

    Are you sure Sony are going to release another PSP? The way this one has flopped... Well, I suppose they have to compete in some capacity, even if the PSP is just selling to the homebrew crowd now anyway. I don't own a PSP, but I was away with my friend for about a week and he had one. The PSP is a very slim, sexy machine with almost no quality games. Sony has no direction with their PSP, and Activision has said that unless SONY gets some direction, they're not releasing any more PSP games.

    Nah, I think sony will release a whole new handheld altogether, and maybe microsoft will enter the portable realm, if they can squash an XBOX 360 into a portable then why not? (probably not for the next 20 years or so [​IMG] ) Nintendo should step up hardware-wise and make the system able to play games like the ps2 or XBOX, but I think they should keep the dual screen-touch format.
