I'd say to get a DS now, then if you like get psp 2 when it comes out. If you like bright, vibrant and fun games I think a DS is the choice. I played Socom Fireteam Bravo for the psp and I just can't appreciate the graphics. It was so bland and boring. The enemies were almost dots on the screen. I aso played some others like Madden. Those games just don't seem to be meant to be played on a handheld. As for getting a psp for multimedia purposes, I'd pass. Battery not that good, you have to buy expensive low capacity memory cardsand it's not that portable. I think the newer version of the psp might have a hard drive, will be more portable plus you will be able to acess files that are on your PS3 hard drive even though your not near it.
