I all ready have my precious PSP now, watching Spiderman2 at the moment, and getting ready to pick up a couple of games at a store that has them in stock.

Got mine as well. Wow, that screen is just amazing Spider-man 2 looks almost as good as my 55-inch HDTV (but tiny!). Got a couple of games, standard fare. Nothing amazing, the release games are good, but nothing amazingly original. I'll talk about it in my new podcast (which I plan on doing today).

Even though I certainly do love Nintendo...

There's just something that bothers me about the abstract design.
That and I can't watch movies on it.

Sorry Mario

Ooh well after the DS getting a head start from me voting for it the PSP took an early lead but the DS has come back, but with many still to vote it's probably all going to change. At least twice.

For me, neither.  I'm sticking to my GBA:SP until I see what the online services are going to look like.

The DS has some design flaws that'll stop me from getting it at least until I find the ultimate DS game.

The PSP...is too bloody expensive! I'd get one but $400+ (au) is way too much.

Have is the main word there.  Buying..not so much.  Metal Gear is (as always) the main draw although from Podcast 6, the darkness seems like a problem. Oh well.  -leeman

Not taking money into account, PSP. I already have a GBA:SP (actually playing Final Fantasy Tactics Advance right now...too bad the plot in that thing is utter crap) and the DS doesn't sport any games that would make me buy it..

Also, other than the money, Steve gave it such a great review that I'd consider it for sure.

PSP would have stomped out DS for me if it wasn't for the price. I still think PSP is better than the DS, but it's just too expensive! argh!

Neither of them have libraries that are convincing enough for me to want either at the moment, which is especially sad on the DS side, since they've had about a 5 or 6 month head start to build up a library and still the only game worth playing is a 9-year-old port of an N64 launch game.

I'll probably be getting a PSP after they lower the price (which I'd assume would be before Christmas) and hopefully get some more worthwhile games, as I'm only slightly interested in Lumines and Metal Gear Acid at this point.

I really hope the PSP's price is lowered before Christmas, but I wouldn't count on it.

I had to vote DS because I own one and I'm looking forward to the Animal Crossing game coming out later this year.

I'm leary about the PSP.  I've always steered clear from Playstation, since I was offended by an anti-Saturn ad of theirs several years ago.  I do have a Sony PDA, but only a few months after I got it Sony pulled out of the PDA market ABANDONING users with little/no warning.  Its making me something of a SONY-phobic.  Now with dead-pixel stories and their must-return-to-Sony support protocol, I'm even more leary.  Add to that that this thing has a DRIVE disturbs me.  Moving parts in a portable??  Unless they've made that really well - I'd expect those to start to die sooner than anything else.   Add to that the overal expense and geez -- no way.

I got the DS shortly after Christmas.  My Advance was having problems - so this was a good replacement.  MOST of the games I still play are Advance games.  I've liked the puzzle games on this, although I'm wondering how long before the lower touch screen is scuffed or marred by stylus usage.  At least the battery life is good
