Nintendo DS is looking good, and nathan the Gamecube sales are going quite good for the amount of games being made for it (due to Microsoft buying most of them...)

Nintendo DS - VS - Sony PSP

DS is looking better tbh

They aren't N64 quality, much better but not spectacular, but good for a handheld console...

here in november this year...

bdw Myamoto says its not psp vs. ds because these are 2 different systems...

Lets get 1 thig straight.. these are the three types

1)Home Consoles (ps2, NGC,XBOX) - Play games at home based on buttons & joysticks
2)Handhelds (GBA SP, PSP) - Play games on the go with buttons
3)DS (nintendo DS) - Play games on the go with buttons, ur voice, a stylus, & more

And bdw the psp's graphics are a bit better then the PS1 graphics... trust me i know for a fact...

and bdw if u do wanna pick between psp and ds, go for the ds... Its something more new and innovative, It has potentiall... Dont think about the graphics... (psp a bit better then ds)
Think about the way you play, witch is much more important.

And also if u think that the screenshots are crispy its because the high FPS...
Its higher then the psp's FPS, so as a result, the screenshots ccome out, err, wrong...Watch a video of E3 or something to get a taste of the true DS graphics...

most of its features are just for commercial purposes, i mean come on, voice activation?
wont work 98% of the time, plus im sure you will have to buy a ton of peripherials to make it work.

things that make ds extemely gay:

+ the controls, if you guys saw it with the metroid all gay using stylus to move

+ 2 screens confusing my head + the fact that it's on 2 screens whould mean that games would have to be rewritten quite a bit to make good use of them (making games cost more assuming their porting from n64) with the psp you don't need big game changes.

+ it's screen is smaller then the PSP's

+ that it goes like \_ because i'll snap off the top half dropping it for some reason plus the look of it generally is plain and dull like a brick

+ touchscreen gay because i get it dirty and scratched then its no more fun

+ DS can hold 128mb in its cartriges, PSP holds 1.8gb in its umd's

+ it's cheaper by an estimated $100 and made by nintendo so you have to put up with people looking at you playing on the same system a bunch of 8 year olds are running around playing on

Why psp is better:

+ Sony makes small complex electronics (laptops would be a good exmple) and they know how to make them well

+ it's specs are almost at that of ps2 (6-7mil polygons/s @ 60 fps at most), nintendo hasn't released specs but leaked info says it's a little better than n64 (200k polygons/s @ 60 fps at most)

+ you'll be able to watch movies and listen to music

PSP owns DS tbh...

DS is a GBA and a GBSP stuck together, literly, swap the GBA screen with a touch screne and glue the flappy bit from a SP onto it and you make ya own ^_^

PSP just rocks, tho its battery life will be the downfall imo...dunno about DS but 2 screens= big power drainage

people are moving too fast with games consoles to actually stretch the current machines to there limits. if they wanted to, they could make a ps1 game with ps2 gfx but nobody takes the time or effort to make games now

No They Couldn't, They Had 16mg Graphics Chips.

Also The RAM Inbuilt Couldnt Handle A PS2 Game Engine


ps2 games use a fraction of there limits, same with all games consoles. if they actually tried they could make a game worthy of the console that pushes it to its limits. and how do u know they couldnt?
