Well I came across a couple of my old Nintendo Game and Watches when I was going through some of my old stuff - Donkey Kong and Octopus - in excellent condition and still in boxes with instructions and so on. Was going to pick up some batteries and hand them over to the kids...and then saw how much they were worth now on ebay Decided I might just sell them instead :grin: Anyway I was thinking of getting a new handheld gaming console as I have a collection of gift cards for Myer courtesy of my employer thanking me for 10 years of service shortly before telling me I won't be needed any more. I was wondering what people thought of the PSP versus the DS, and which one is the better buy. The DSi is about to come out in a matter of days so I figure I'd be going with that one rather than the DS - cost of the DSi and the PSP seems to be on a par. I'm aware one of the biggest selling points for many on the PSP series was the hackability and the ability to run homebrew software and of course *cough* download iso's and play them rather than having to buy games - but from what I can see nobody has managed to hack the firmware on the 3000 series yet. Similarly there seem to be cartridges around that you can slot a memory card into with homebrew software or games loaded onto for the DS series. I think there appears to be some new ones popping up that suit the DSi. But with regards to "playability", having not used either before, which one is superior? With the larger screen is the PSP the winner? There appears to be more software around for the DS, but graphics from what I've seen from screenshots appears to be better on the PSP? I'll be the primary user, although my fiancee will use it as well and I'll give the kids some rather limited use at this point (prefer to see them playing outside or reading). Not at all interested in using the PSP to watch movies on by the way. Battery life? Hardware faults? After some opinions on what is the better one to buy! Cheers.
