Sony PSP or Nintendo DS?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sony PSP or Nintendo DS?

easy solution. 1. find out what games you want on both systems. 2. compare your list of games 3. pick whichever console has the better list of games that you like 4. ??? 5. Profit! honestly, no one can tell you which system is better. Look at the lineup of games and decide which looks better. That is your number one priority.



Help! I'm stuck in a forum signature!

The DS, because the PSP is missing an analogue stick.

The more I play my PSP the more I realize that certain games require a second one. There alot of games that do not need such camera control so old school rpgs, 2d fighters, card games, puzzle games and unique games are good on the PSP.

 

The one MAJOR negative is the UMD loading. My favorite feature is the standby mode. You can put system on standby come back days later turn it on and it is picks up right where you left off. I am not sure if I said thise here before but the only thing that makes the PSP less than perfect is the amount of ram. If it had more it actually might solve many of the issues that system has.

 

Imagine if Sony would have released it with the original "8MB" instead of the 32MB it has now. That said, 32MB of RAM *should* be enough for a console. I don't think adding more RAM would solve anything.

Standby on the DS is also pretty damned good. More than a few times I have closed my DS, forgotten about a game over a weekend, and come back 3 days later to find it still running.

It's certainly down to what games you want to play on it.

PS4 Slim $249 (October 2017)

PS4 Pro $349 (October 2017)

it's important to base on what you use it for. I have a DS and i'll list reasons why I picked it in the first place. - compactness - fits your shirt pocket - game library - stylus - different kind of gameplay to experience - dual screen - change the game interface, for better or worse... - clam shell design to protect you screen without having to buy extra accessories to protect the... screens Things that I make me like it more after I bought it, - battery life - I don't even turn my game off, just close it and it'll go in stand by. even battery if flashing red, you can just close it and charge it up hours later. I had my game in wifi mode which prevent it to go in stand by mode and it lasted... 8 hours (when i noticed red blinking battery light) - instant stand by mode and open it to resume where you left off (no pause, no load time) - "loading..." - i don't remember seeing any - Phoenix Wright 1 & 2 - Trace Memory - Pac Pix - Cooking Mama There are many more games that I would want to play but I am currently "stuck" on Pokemon Diamond. (stuck as in, hadn't swap it with another game since release) I don't own a PSP so I can't comment on that, but it sure have some games I like, especially those tatics games.



It's really about what you look for in a game, but xstonexcold316x summed it up well.

Nintendo DS. Nintendo has always been the king in the handheld department of video games.

Maybe because it does depend on what games you want!?

If you like Console quality games on the go, then buy a PSP.....if you want a different style of game on the go, then buy a DS.

I recommend DS, though I still have an urge to get a PSP. Price isn't really as big of a deal anymore, since the games cost about the same, and the systems aren't far apart in price. But I find the DS games fun, and good for a time-waster. I'm afraid that I wouldn't be able to pick up and play a PSP as easily.



LEFT4DEAD411.COM
Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

DS PRO'S:

-Touchscreen.

-Biggest 3th party support.

-Nintendo games.

-Big software line-up.

-Interactive... Fun to play FPS like metroid... Or minigames like Warioware... And brain training or even Sudoku is much more fun than on PSP.

 

DS CON'S:

-Not a graphical beast (N64 lvl's).

-If u don't like a touchscreen... (Which i can't imagine cause it feels rather normal or should i say... natural?!)

 

PSP PRO'S:

-Nice graphics... (PS2-)

-God Of War: Chains of olympus...

-Big screen...

-Many options... (Plays MP3, MPEG4 etc...)

-More FPS orientated games...

 

PSP CON'S:

-Battery dies in 3-10 hours... Depending on if your watching a movie or playing a game like Sudoku...

-Less games...

-No touchscreen (If u don't like a touchscreen forget about this con)

-Sony games... (Not as good as Nintendo's in my opinion but still GOOD)... Example: SoCoM Fireteam Bravo 2...

 

 

Edit:

I have 1 DS and 2 DSlite!...

Cause i like the games and the touchscreen... And like to play multiplayer metroid and stuff... But thats just me...

I'd pick DS... (But im a Nintendo fanboy...) So it's your choice... But i'd say DS! (And 40 mil to roughly 20 mil agree with me...)
