EBA is awesome! haha :) always thought of buying psp ever since it came out but many years later, i own the famicom edition GBA and the DS Lite but still no PSP cuz there's nothing to motivate me to buy. not games, not graphics.
Currently loving my Wii x2, Xbox 360 Pro & Xbox 360 Arcade, and Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children Limited "Cloud Black" 160GB PS3
GAMEFLY & GOOZEX FTW
I have a psp and a DS and I can tell you why people opt for the DS, it's simple, it's offering you an experience you can get only on the DS, the psp is offering you an experience that you can get, and better at that on the ps2, ps3, Gamecube, xbox....., my point being is the psp only has watered down console games, with an annoying little analog nub to play them with. DS has Nintendogs, Brain Age Pokemon RPG, Ace Wright, Elite Beat Agents, New super Marios Bros. , I can go on and on forever the point being these games don't have console equivelents and there for offer an experience entirely unique to handhelds. Now with that said there is some sweet games on the psp namely Tekken Dark Resurrection in my opinon it's the best game on the system. The GTA's are good. Tales of Eternia is really good(only out in japan and europe though). Ridge Racer and Burnout and Virtua Tennis are also sweet. And for me that's about it. Alot of games look good, play well but I just can't get into these kind of games on a portable. For the most part I like quick loading cheesy 2d games on a portable.
The PSP kicks ass ....Syphon Filter Dark Mirror ,Ratchet and Clank Size Matters ,Daxter ,Lemmings ,Burnout ,Wipeout Pure ,Tekken Dark Ressurrection ,Ace Combat X ,Out Run 2006 ,Loco Roco ,Me and my Katamary ,Lumines ,Every Extend Extra ,Metal Gear Portable Ops ,Valyrie Profile Lenneth ,The Warriors ,ISS 7 ,Gitaroo Man ,Madden 07 ,Marvel Ultimate Alliance ,Lego Star Wars II ,Field Commander ,Socom Fireteam bravo ,Killzone Liberation,Capcom Classic Collection Remixed ,Sega Genesis Collection ,Metal Slug Anthology ,Pro Race Driver ....and the upcoming games as Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core ,Final Fantasy Tactics ,Dungeons & Dragons Tactics ,Castlevania:Dracula X Collection ,God of War ,Devil May Cry ,Gran Turismo Portable ,Silent Hill Origins ,Final Fantasy I and II remakes ,Valhalla Knights ,Test Drive Unlimited ,Craxy Taxy ,Afterburner ,Virtua Tennis 3 .......yeah the DS has Nintendogs ,and Mario and Brain Training and sells a lot because casuals but in the sheer quantity and quality of software the PSP gives it a good beating .
First off you mentioned alot of games that aren't out and many that aren't even coming to the psp God of War? And Devil may cry and GT Portable seem to be on indefinite hold. Second you mentioned some pretty average games in the there Out Run, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, even Fild Commander is good, but I'd take Advance Wars over it any day of the week. Have you played most of these games? I've played just about all of them, and Loco Roco is the only one you mentioned that is really good and doesn't actually have a console equivelent that's better. (Even this title as brilliant as it is, I just get bored with it after two hours) lets not forget your shelling out 40 bucks for games and way more for the system also. This is my big problem with the psp. later this year i'm going to buy Burnout 5 for my x360, and Burnout Dominator is coming for my psp, I'm sure it's going to be great, but Burnout 5 great? No. Again it'll be a crappy version of a console game. After spending 60 bucks on a great console title should I pay another 40 to get the watered down version on my psp? no. And I'm sure Dominator will be highly rated and used as an argument to give the psp a chance, but you can't forget the bottom line, if I want Burnout, I'm getting 5 for the 360 or the ps3, and not wasting my time with the psp version, same with GTA, Metal Gear, Tekken Syphon Filter, heck even Monster Hunter is now going to move to the ps3, eleminating another reason to waste time with the handheld. The DS treats the handheld market like a unique market with a unique gameplay experience with plenty of strong titles for casual or hardcore players that you simply won't find on your home console at all. So you can tell me how great every psp game is until your blue in the face but until they start making something other then crapy versions of console games or start selling eveything for 20 bucks it's just not worth it.

Are you sure you bought a PSP? Or is just another way to continually thow around Sony product names in an amatuerish attempt at viral marketing? Seriously though, I was starting to miss your outrageous statements. It is what hooked me into reading this forum. However,-Nintendo-I-Nintendo-am-Nintendo-not-Nintendo-swayed-------------Nintendo.
I could play mario on a console. it's called the NES and SNES. and yet, I really want to play new super mario bros. I could play pokemon on any nintendo system, and yet the DS versions sell well. before I continue this...any game can be made into a console game. being able to play a game anywhere you go is the important part, not that it could have been made into a bigger game on a console.
It's funny because both fooflexible and mancandy elaborated on a point that I previously spoke about. MGS portable ops is completely unlike every other MGS I have played and so is acid. I do not expect MGS4 to incorperate any of the gameplay elements of these because MGS4 is most likely going to be in the vein as the numbered sequels. I listed games that are unlike thier PS2 conterparts and I highly doubt the PS3 are going to include the unique gameplay the PSP provides. The PSP is has games that are cleverly designed for short burst of gameplay and revolves around some pick up and go type games. Like I said before anyone who thinks that the PSP experience will be recreated on console need to spend a tad bit more time with the PSP.
