It's not as straightforward as you might think.
But that's just because I'm going to get the PSP Slim real soon after it's release.
PSP won it. It had a redesign, a redesign that was more than purely cosmetic.
Only because Nintendo seemed to focus on the Wii more than anything else. Not to mention they spent a lot of time just patting themsevles on the back for their sales numbers. They did show Phantom Hourglass but I have already seen so many videos of that game on the internet. The PSP came in with a re-desinged case, an overhaul to the "D" pad and they moved the WLAN switch to the top of the unit rather than on the side. Also the media functionality where you can now hook the new PSP up to a television. Granted the PSP will probably never catch up to the DS in sales, IMO the PSP is a better system. Especially at $170. I use my PSP way more than my DS.
I havent seen Nintendo presentation or microsoft. But ive seen Sony's. I would say PSP slim won.
i own a psp, n believe me it deserved to win. its awsome! the graphics are great n clear. i can even use it on my ps3 :)
nintendo is the bset hardewaer sell out there now then any thing els .it beat the psp a long time ago
going by what was shown at E3 yeah psp won just for the fact of the new psp. I think the DS only showed off Zelda too so that's not a strong showing. They did mention Syphon Filter and I did get a demo of that and it could be good if they fix the AI. I swear I could see and hear them shooting in fact they were aiming at me but not once was I hit by a bullet. Game looked good thou and controls were tight
I don't think Nintendo did a good job of hyping-up DS developments as well as they could have. For example, a HUGE DS game announcement pretty much flew by under the radar - Advance Wars 2!
Oh yes, most of their conference went to the Wii. They had way more about Metroid 3 or Wii Fit than any DS game.
DS vs. PSP: Who won E3? That's like asking who won the last 15 seconds of a Globetrotters vs. Generals basketball game, right after the Generals scored one basket. ie. It doesn't matter. We all know that the Globetrotters are already winning, and will also win in the end. PSP may have had a better showing at E3, and won that battle... but they'll never win the war.
