    Hell.
    PSP has some good games anyway and in it's prime it had amazing homebrew support. Definitely worthwhile.

    PSP > DS for emulation (definitely), but the DS has a huge library of all sorts of games, though the graphical and processing capability of the DS is readily apparent nowadays.

    Claiming that graphics are everything is wrong, yes.
    But claiming that graphics don't matter at all is equally as wrong.

    Close your eyes so there's no graphics and see how well you play the game then. :P Graphics matter on a technical level, they are important because they're the main method of communication with the player. If the graphics are garbled, corrupt, or simply don't point out things they need to, it can severely impact gameplay.

    i think she meant the people that only choses a game for its reality ,like chossing to buy codmw3 over smario galaxy , only because its not a little kid game , but she thinks that even with no graphics , there´s still gplay .

    PSP GO's are ugly as fuck...but of the 3 that's probably the best thing.

    3DS exclusives aren't THAT amazing, yet. Some real gems, but if you don't have a PSP at all...it has a lot more gems since its been out for years. If you didn't have a DS i'd have said 3DS+flashcart.

    Not even sure how an iTouch got in the list. It sucks. Waste of money.

    You play a Vita and tell me that.
    I love my 3DS and still use it, but when I play my Vita there's just a "wow" factor where I honestly just sit back and think sometimes "This is GORGEOUS." and those kinds of moments will never, ever happen on a 3DS.
    Graphics don't make a game, but they certainly do help in several aspects.

    I think you forget what exactly your purpose for buying one of it.

    it's not what you should pick, it should be what games you want to play? it should answer this question.

    from my own experience, since you mention PSP and iTouch, most people (this was meant to mention my big brother) who have both, use it only for multimedia (watching movies/listening music)
    he only touch his PSP just for play San Andreas, and his iPhone to play angry birds and that's it, sad.
    ofcourse other person are vary, but seeing so much things you can do with both other than playing games, you probably end up doing same thing.
    So why not saving up for the next big things, or buy Home consoles PS3/xbox360 (since you already have greatest handheld ever made).

    Well considering before this I was purely a nintendo fan, I thought that I should get into some different series of games. Looks like I'll be grabbing the PSPGo then. Thanks fellow Tempers~
