PSP and DSi Feature Comparison

PSP World Writes:

"When the Nintendo DSi launches in the United States on April 5th, it will come with a hefty price tag of $170. Perceptive consumers will notice that this puts the Nintendo handheld at exactly the same price point as the PSP 3000 core pack, which currently retails for $169.99 in the United States. Excitement for the DS successor couldn't be any higher as we wait for it to arrive, but does the DSi offer value at its current price? To find out, we compare the features in both the Sony PSP 3000 and Nintendo DSi right out of the box."

$170 is definitely a ripoff for the DSi, at least until it gets some actual software and we can see whether it is a worthwhile upgrade. My DS Lite plays games perfectly and that's all I want it for.

If I want to play around with snapshots I can do it in much higher resolution on my PC.

Didnt they do this comparison a long time ago when it was announced in Japan?

BrunoM3197d ago

Yes they did but GAMING journalists like to hit on dead birds !

FarEastOrient3197d ago

They should have considered the region the PSP and DSi is coming from...

For example the PSP is Japan has a camera attachment, while in Europe it comes with a GPS Locater and acts as a controller for the PS3 DVR functions they have on PlayTV.

Also in the United States you can install the Google Android OS unto the PSP, you have to tweak the way it process data, an easy tweak.

Oh no! This PSP website has fallen to the dark side.

clinker3197d ago

yeah, but at the very end the article they say that the DSi isn't worth the price.
