I remember fondly how the Psp was ridiculed at the time. Of course the DS obliterated it in sales to much joy for the Nintendo fanboys.
Personally I bought one for Crisis Core and ended up playing loads of Jrpg's on the Psp.
The better one?
No way of determining that.
I'd say we all came out on top with two awesome systems.
Aside from battery life and discs made of egg shells, I don't recall the PSP being ridiculed. What could anyone say about it?
