    you contridict yourslef a lot-
    how can you say the DS is winning in sales worldwide even though the PSP is only out in japan right now? the PSP come sout here wednesday, but my reserved comes in thursday, meaning the first day they are going to be sold out here also. so wait a few months until XBOX decides they want to make a portable XBOX then we can more accuratly compare sales between the PSP and DS, Pan Sir

    That was the joke

    here? here? where is here.
    Xbox is not going to make a handheld system. closest thing was that Gizmondo thing released in Europe that has only sold around 800 units and is in some way affiliated to microsoft.

    What do you think Nintendo will do if it loses the handheld market? Do you think it'll become the next Sega?

    it has pushed close to 3 million units in Japan, and North America, and broke records for the sale in the UK. Even if the psp outsells the ds, the DS nor nintendo will be switching to games. Sides, Nintendo owns the Seatle Mariners.

    Wow! I never knew that! Nintendo is pretty pimp :).

    Anyways, can you play DVDs on that thing? I heard you could force it if you put them on your computer or something... That probably doesn't make any sense but... is there any way you can get dvds you already have on the playstation or are you just going to have to buy the UMD discs?

    i got my PSP last night, and.. that thing is so pretty. it has a screen size that is like the 2 DS screens combined, and the graphics are awesome. it came with the spiderman2 dvd, and it looks perfect, and came with a sampler disc. the coolest feature about it is you can save screenshots and music from your computer into the game using the little memory stick that comes with it that is like 1 inch long..
    it came with little earphones to, and it has 2 cords that you have to plug into eachother to be able to plug one into the PSP and the other end into the wall to charge it up.

    I work at blockbuster and a tech geek. The PSP sucks. Drop it once your ****ed (not durable), the battery life is about 6 hours (sucky as hell), uses new system of dvd's called UMD's (universal media discs) which you can watch movies well it doesn't play dvd's so you'll have to wait for UMD's to come out for your favourite movies, the space capacity for MP3's well aint bad can fit up to 100 songs basically nothing special and it is heavy. It just a non-revolutionary handheld unlike the DS. Only thing PSP got going for it is a older more mature group aim for games.

    what i think makes the PSP the superior is that it can store music and photos and the graphics quality of the system.

    so what that you'll have to wait until that certain movie you want to see comes out on UMD, the DS cant play em. the PSP can.the DS's battery life isnt no more than 1-2 longer than the PSP. Thats why you are given a chord to charge the battery thats in there, and you dont even have to actually use the battery's life to run the PSP.

    the only thing i can see about the DS being at all better than the PSP is its durability and it dual-screens. thats it

    DS is solid durable, longer battery life, revolutionary and why would you need to store music and photos and stuff by the time the PSP came out I already had a dvd player for movies already had a iPod for music which blows but can hold alot of songs and an xbox for games which can also play dvds and music not portable though. As well already had a digital camera and a phone camera. It nothing special it about the same price as of buying each piece as well. DS games are bad though atm.

    digi camera-$320 to $400
    phone with camera-$100-$200
    mp3 player-$190 to $290
    songs/disc total costs-$50
    xbox-$100-$200

    PSP-$200

    the psp can have all of those in 1, and costs about 550 bucks less. and its portable, which is another big issue.

    my psp was 200 'total' with reservations and everything.
    btw i added up the total cost of everything she mentioned that she said she had that all did what the psp did.
