The DS came out during a great selling season. It also came out much ealier.
3 months isn't much earlier, but yes, the season did more than likely have an effect on the sales, but even so, right now it is the all around better system. It has slightly worse hardware, but we know hardware isn't everything.
I (and critics around the world) respectfully disagree
Graphics whores = instant lose Why do you think the PS2 is the top sytem right now? Your logic is flawed, sir
I didn't present any logic. I just stated my view on which was the better gaming system (and which recieved more critical acclaim) :-/!
Hey ya know what about 5 months ago I won a contest and won a Psp and a DS and over the 3 months a bought a few games for each and i would have to say the ds touch screen is all the much better but the psp's graphics are greater than the ds's but they both have their ups and downs
Which is exactly what this thread is about....
As far as Advent goes, what a pathetic little Sony fanboy, I laugh at him.
I can't wait to pick up a DS and an adapter.
DS has alaready outsold hte PSP in japan where they were released at teh same time.
in fact sales for the DS were higher than the PSP and PS2 combined.
DS is also getting some heavy hitters in teh next few months. Castlevania, advanced wars, metroid prime, mario kart. god damn! what does PSP got? nothing!
man u guys dont know wut ur missing, the psp is so sweet cause it came with orginal games not some lame port from the n64...mario ds, rayman, ect
Mario 64 > Metal Gear Ac!d anyday... As for good DS games, check out Kirby Canvas Curse. It's getting phenomenal reviews. As for the PSP, battery life and price turn me off. I also notice on all the PSP's I see... SO MANY SMUDGES/SCRATCHES!
Final Fantasy III FTW.
Kirby's Canvas Curse may be a bit lacking in story, but it absolutely fits the gameplay. Don't let "lacking in story" drive you away, though. The gameplay rocks! It makes excellent use of the touch-screen, and it may well prove to the "the Tetris of the DS" that everybody has been looking for. That title may belong to Nintendogs, however, as that game, alone, has sold more DS units than PSP overhype ever has.
Even I am tempted to pick up Nintendogs this October/November, and I don't even like real dogs. The DS can do anything the PSP can do, and at a lower price to boot. $200 will get you the system and attachment to play movies, MP3s, etc. (though, you'll have to import the attachment at the moment). The DS line-up is also a whole lot better than the current PSP line-up.
That, my friends, is why the DS kicks the PSP in every concievable way, especially sales and loyalty.
I'm looking forward to Advance Wars DS, Metroid Prime: Hunters, Animal Crossing DS, Mario Kart DS, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, Final Fantasy III, Xenosaga DS, and the multitude of games that just plain slip my mind due to shear number.
SquarEnix has announced two FF games for the DS. They've only announced one FF game (a remake or sequel to VII?) and one movie (sequel to VII) for the PSP.
Namco has announced a Xeno(gear/saga) for the DS, and they have absolutely no plans for any game, that I know of, for the PSP.
wut kind of people smudging their psp.
:rolleyes The PSP surface is absolutely perfect for collecting the greasy fingerprints. It's the easiest system I've seen, at least in a while, to smudge.
it is so true. My brother is constantly wiping the screen casue it is so bad.
The date today is Wensday July 27 2005 and the last few weeks Nintendo has been givein alot on info out on the Ds.
For example they want to make a giant Wi-Fi net work where you can connect to any one in the world any where. The picture in the statement I found is a boy in the middle of a forest useing the ds as a Gps.
I know this isint new but theres also been rumors.. well not rumors on ign they said blizzard was thinking about comeing to the PsP or Ds and makeing Starcraft Ds sounds cool.
So I think the Ds is just going to get better and better because of the add-ons there going to make
i like em both personally, i just dont think that psp has a lead over nintendo, i mean who actually buys those ****ing lame ass umd movies?
See: My new NDS Guide.
With nintendo's upcomming titles by the end of the year, and the launch of their free online wifi gaming network, PSP is doomed. What has the PSP done/are they doing? UMD movies you can usually get cheaper on DVD and convert to play off the memory stick >.>
You judge a game by it's graphics?
Play Final Fantasy 3 and compare it with 10. There is no comparison.
RPGs not your thing? Play Starcraft and compare it to that Star Wars RTS.
Force commander? Never speak of that game again >.<! It was just baaaad.
