the fact is they are not supose to be compaired. It wasnt even made to ply gba games so stop complaining about it not playing older games cuz that slot was actualy put there for expantions and extras that widen the DSs capabilities. The fail rates not to bad for either system being ones got a shit load of prossesing with all of its inputs and third output (fourth with expations), and the otheres prssesing a ton of graphics. The fact is if your a PSP fan, we dont care, fine be one, thats your system, its better for you. Its all a matter of tast, do you like pepsi or pepsi vinella, its all your prefrence. Just remember PSP is more expencive, but better graphics. DS is less expencive, lesser graphics, but a more varried feild of possablilities then the PSP.
both of those Handhelds were rushed. It's going to come and bite them in the ass when microsoft relases it handheld gaming system that, I would seriously bet, is already in the early to early-mid stages of delevopment. Oh and I think for media we will see Apple trail baze in that area.....or if you take this april fools day joke......
So no it wasent rushed, it was perfect by the time they finished it, just all you PSP fanboys cant admit that your console was designed by a bunch of retarded monkeys
If it is perfect the failure rate would be 0%, but nothing is perfect. It is amusing you call people PSP fanboys for saying that DS is not godly and PSP "was designed by a bunch of retarded monkeys." Somehow I get the impression you are somewhat biased.
Personally I wouldn't drop all that money for PSP or DS, it isn't worth it to me since I could pay $6 for a book and just read when I'm traveling. However, I have seen them both working and they both are good, but different.
new starwars DS wmp is up. Not to shabby, i like that they are combing a sidescroll with a flying shooter type but they coulda done better with the graphics, they arent using the DSs graphics to there full potential in the sidescroll mode.
Ok, The psp has usefullness up to a point. To me, it has little usefullness to others it may have a ton of usefullness, depends on the person., I will explain.
I have an iPod, I know not everyone does, but I am not gonna trade the best mp3 player out there for a psp's mp3 abililties. And even if I did, who wants to hafta BOOT the dang system just to listen to a song? And get this, you are going on a trip, and you are listening to music and then your like "herm I wanna play freakin metalgear solid card game" and you whip it out and guess what? Your freakin battery is low. So you can either play the game for a while or listen to music, your choice. But for someone that dowsn't have an mp3 player, this is a nice feature to get with a gaming system.
Ohh and I know it is lame, but when they make a game for the psp that doesn't have a console equivalent, then I will be interested. But that is my opinion, games made for the playstation never really appealed to me, don't know why. Except final fantacy, if final fantacy comes for the PSP, I am buying one!
A while ago I bought a PDA, I thought it was cool, and I was the envy of my friends, till a month later when I put it aside and never used it again. I lost interest and realized that I don't need one, and few people do. I think that people are going to realize the same thing about the video feature on their psp, cool yeah, but after a while, it won't be used anymore.
And oooo lets watch full length videos!!! YEAH! lets pay another rediculous amount of money for a version of a movie we probibly already have JUST so I can watch it in my car on the way to school. No thanx I will bite my lip and WAIT TILL I GET HOME TO WATCH IT! And even then I have a portable DVD player (I won in a contest yay) that I can watch movies on, without buying special versions of media for it! so if I get the rare urge to watch a movie on the way to the mall, I will use it.
I personally would not use the psp's features other than the gaming, and that is not appealing to me now.
I forgot to mention the same thing about the play-yan or whatever, I have no need for music, or video. The video capibilitys are cool but rarely will anyone use it for longer then three months in my opinion, it will be a short fad that is passed.
good points, the battery dose suck, personaly i own a pda, its my dads old one when he got a new one. Personaly i use my pda for everything, lists, the time, taking notes i know i would loose otherwise, i use mine since ive got realy bad memory and need to list everything i need to do (my real probs when i forget my pda at home). Now if the DS had something to give it those abilities of a pda... well that would just plain kick ass. I also own an mp3 player already, not an i-pod, something called a rover its cheap, holds 2 cds at most, but still nice. Now I see where the PSP is a good system, the PSP in fact is a great gameing system, I might end up buying one once the PS3 comes out cuz then it will go down in price signifigantly. But never the less I will love and play my DS with more heart and gratituid especialy because its battery plainly fucking owns, and compaired to the PSP its buhkingham palace battery wise.
A few monts ago i heard some roumors about a possible expantion or new system that makes the DS into a functional PDA device. Nintendo registered a patent that suggested to personal orginizer abilities on a handheld gaming system. Not sure if they are going to use it, but always a possibility.
Well Nintendo are about to put another handheld out, another Gameboy for a fact and no DS arnt releasing another console because thats a piece of hardware not a company
And like the rest of us your sources are the Internet which isent the best place for reliability, unless your watching porn..........
when did nintendo annouce the release of the new GBA? im pretty sure that it was just a rumor that was dicarded, i mean iv heard that it would be better than the PSP also. but i dont think nintendo would put out another handheld.
new GBA was said to be released at this E#, but then they anounced the Revolution would be there even though ewveryone thought it wasnt gona. So Nintgendos realy gona steal the show. Now I would not expect the new gameboy to do GCN (and yes its GCN not GC, learn to initial). Gameboys have always done cartrages and have been able to play there prodocestors (not sure if thats a real word or not). Thus it would have to be cartrage based, and a gba playing gcn would not be compact, i mean eve with our technolagy it would be like stuffing a slightly smaller gamecube into your pocket. Also you cant exactly throw GCN games in you pocet. If there ever will be gcn games on the handheld they will be remakes in very tiny cartrage form like they did with all the nintendo games and some SNES games for the GBA or how they put Supermario 64 on the DS.
