Bought the PSP, enjoyed it for a bit, then it collected dust in the summer of '05. In the fall of '05, I stumbled accross homebrew, and I've been enjoying my PSP on a daily basis ever since.

I'm a huge NES & SNES fan, and I'm playing through all the games I enjoyed years ago.

This is what I always wanted my GBA to be!

It's really a no contest at this point.  Although it started off slow, the DS now has a huge library of classic games, and has even more on the way. 
I have nothing against the PSP, but at this point it's library of games isn't that fantastic, and what it does have, is mostly ports of games you can get on the PS2, with less features.  Though it is starting to get better, it'll be a while before it overtakes the DS.

The PSP does have some other features that may make it appeal to more people, but I can't think of one of them that is useful to me.  UMD's are much more expensive than DVD's and less useversial.  The web browser is slow, and you'd need a PC with an internet connection anyway, and it's too big and delicate to be used as an MP3 player, compared to something like an iPod or even a cheap mp3 player.

I own both
PsP is the better Console but has no good IPs at the moment
This is where The DS comes in not a great piece of hardware but with tons of great IPs

I bought a DS when they came available in the UK, played Mario64 and the Metroid demo for a while, then went back to my GBA.  When GTA came out, I bought a PSP.  I played that until POP: Revelations came out, which is great.  And then Mario Kart came out.  Haven't been near the PSP since.

The PSP is a nice machine, needing some games ( are you listening Sony??? ).  As an MP3 player, it doesn't compete with my iPod.  Browsing is painful.  Watching UMD's on it, is nice, but they're a tad too expensive.

Until some decent PSP games come out, the DS is the most fun console to have.

I find it ironic that the best games on the PSP are ten and twenty year old games from the competition...

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well, they are probably also making money from the games and they probably also make a fair amount of money on their memory sticks.
