Too early to say, IMO. PSP looks more promising to me, but DANG is it expensive.

In power, the PSP is better than the DS, no question. But in cost, stability, and manufacture, the DS has the upper hand.
We create reality, reality does not create us. Thus is the question, if we stop beleving in reality, then what are our limitations on pursuing our dreams?

the PSP was set to be released in New Zealand in April, but because of the dead pixel issue, it might not be released until around xmas time, which is fricken ages away!
so the DS will be the leading portable machine here for a while yet.

I don't plan on getting either any time soon.

The DS: I have my GBA and N64, why do I need this? It's got a touch screen, that's nice. I don't need a map to show me where the castle is in Mario 64. The DS also doesn't look as sturdy as it's predecessors. I mean, you drop a Gameboy, you don't need to worry. I know people whose Gameboys have gone through the wash or fallen off roofs and survived. I doubt if the DS could take much, but I've never really handled one. So, no DS, not unless SSB:DS comes out.

The PSP: Did you SEE the price tag? I can't afford that, at least not now. I have a portable DVD player, and I have my PS2. Like Steve said in his podcast, it's not a unique experience. I'm sure when GTA:PSP comes out, I'll be rushing to the store to buy one just like everybody else. Maybe even if it's just GTA3... I had a great time with GTA3, and playing it on the go could be fun. Just imagine GTA3 on a plane. Of course, PS3 might be out by then, and the mini PS2 with LCD screen might be out, too. I guess it depends on timing and my income levels. Hopefully it won't end up trying to do everything and just fail miserably.

Its so the DS for me.  I've had mine for a month now and still do not own a single DS game.  So why did I buy it?  So I could play my current GBA games on it!  I have a GBA, and playing the games on the DS makes them 10 times better.  Still keep my GBA around for GB and GBC games as well as GC connectivity (FF:CC).

Been a while, the new people might a time with this. Personally, I like the DS for its potential and the fact that it's not just a DVD player.

I really like both systems, I think that PSP has better games out right now, and overall it is a very cool system.

Incorrect! name these so called 'good' games on the PSP. Chances are they have a DS equivalent which is superior in every way...maybe :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

There are many great games on the PSP, that you can't find any equivalent to on the DS, like Wipeout Pure, GTA:LCS, and Socom: Fireteam Bravo. And even games that are on both like Burnout: Legends are much Superior on the PSP.

whereas on the DS there are also great games with no equivalent on PSP. Warioware, Mario 64, mariokart, Animal crossing, Meteos...

Star Wars Battlefront 2 for PSP is good.
