Neocrisis: The latest scan from T3 compares the DSi with the PSP 3000. Which system is better?
They really gave the games to DSi? I mean it's more friendly and easier to jump into however alot of those games offer no depth.
There is no denying that the psp lineup isn't good. The DS has far more games to chose from. Personally I like the psp better though because I rarely play handheld games anyways.
and talking about games to choose from http://files.xboxic.com/nin...
wth? ubisoft? is that what they have been doing? those bastards!
Yes. They could eliminate the gimmick touch screen in mind and put those great games on the PSP as ports and brush up the graphics and add content. I'm redundant with the "and"'s but i am a little wasted atm. :-P
neither of them. well game wise, they both offer their share of sh*tty games and gems. But hardware speaking: I think the DSi is better than the psp-3000 mainly because of the screen issue.
Your question being why would Sony put all that multimedia in the PSP even though you have an iPod? I think that one should have been a no brainer. By the way, not everybody has an iPod, like you. If it wasn't for the multimedia goodness thrown into the PSP, I probably would have had to throw down a WHOLE LOT of extra cash for the iPod and what ever else to cover the features I use damn near every day on my PSP. I mean, come on, music, videos, picture viewer, internet, car navi (have you ever priced a stand-a-lone car navi?), camera (yes I do use it quite a bit), Skype phone so I can call from Japan to my Moms back home on 2 cents a minute, the 1seg TV that I use everyday on my way to work AND games??? Sony's PSP has saved me a boat load, thank you. *EDIT: Sorry, I made a posting mistake. This message was directed to "ablecain" below.
They prefer the PSP 3000, yet they concede that the DSi has better games. Makes no sense to me. I have an ipod, why the heck would I need all that multimedia junk on my handheld gaming device (emphasis on the word "gaming").
Most likely because the average "gamer" has evolved to the point that video games aren't the only requirements for a worthy console/handheld. This gen, we are starting to embrace media entertainment just as much as gaming since the two come pretty close together when objectively comes to the point of "entertainment". As a straight up gamer, I'd pick the DS anyday. However the PSP: you can do so much more with it and that really warrants price of the handheld. I'm guessing the article's judgment was based on "biggest bang for the buck". and well...PSP's got that down 100%
Cos the Ipod is crap at multimedia.
Overall the PSP doesn't have impressive games, but the ones that are good, are of console quality. Whereas the DS has variety of fun games so I understand wh ythey game the games to DS.
I have a DS and i would much rather have a psp. the only games on the DS i enjoy enough to keep are pokemon and Izuna. I also have zelda, sonic, puzzle quest, metriod, etc. but really the only thing stoping me from selling it is pokemon. If i had a psp i would have patapon, FFT, God of War, Star Ocean 1 and 2, Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, wipeout, Valkrie Profile and have Resistance Retribution, parasite eve and Final fantasy agito to look forward to.
I think that the PSP is missing it's Pokemon, it just doesn't have anything like that on it. Pokemon can last you a long time, and if the PSP had a game like that it could potentially last forever with DLC, which I think they would do more with the PSP if software sold more. Again I have the perfect game for them if Sony would just hire me.
your right, psp definitely doesn't have a game with the lasting and mass appeal that matches up with pokemon, but it certainly its share of worthwhile games. (although for japan they seem to be crazy over the monster hunter games. I guess you could consider that there flagship but state side it hasn't had the same appeal and there isn't anything that can match the DS flagship pokemon) Pokemon was the sole reason I bought a DS and its probably the sole reason I haven't sold it. I think Final fantasy Tactics comes pretty close for me though (even though I have the PS1 version).
the ds doesnt have a variety of games, dont lie to people its not funny =(
Dsi will win regardless of these peoples skin and bones analysis. The ds does have all the best games last I checked. The 3 megapixel camera is gonna be very nice and the sd support compaired to sony proprietary BS. DSI is a perpetual winner.
...both are great and offer their own unique qualities. However, I will say that in my household my sons want PSPs and my daughters wants the Nintendo DS. I think the DS has a much stronger casual gaming library. The PSP needs more quality casual and hardcore games and where the hell is GT:Mobile?????
I think that the PSP is a better system. It has less software though, but the software that is great on the PSP is alot better than the great games on the DSi. DSi is great for a younger audience. Hopefully 3rd parties get on making ORIGINAL content for the PSP in 09.
these are gameing devies am i right so yea screw the crappy internet both system already have forget that tacky phone psp has witch u cant even call 911 lets talk games ds has far more while psp lack there a few good ones but half are ports ether way or end up coming to ps2 for cheaper its hard to find a ds port theres some but compair to psp not even close i mean liberty citys is a remake and its aloso on ps2 i mean rilly theres no point in that know is there psp gets gba ports whats that game name yago union i dont rember something like that know thats on psp i mean rilly they go rivia the promess land as well i under stan fif the grafic were oh so better and more content beside voice overs or if the game never hit the shores bit thats not the case in thi sone know is it hers som egame sin the ds list here zelda ph, both castel vanya, games witch are not ports like the psp CV games FF A2 withc is also no ta port like the psp ff tactics professore laten, hotel dusk, rune factory 1 and 2, lunar nigths, animal crossing, hunters, afvance wars, viewtaful joe . and rocket slime and thers so mutch more lets do psps games shal we loco roco 1 and 2, patapon, i dont like god of war but god of way wil be in thsi list, crisis core, jeann arc,disgia, rachet anc clank some tales games an dthst about all the exlusives as u can see i did not put an multi paltfroms or ports so yea i have a pritty good piont here plzzzz no one say the psp plays music becouse im almost positive every ones has some typ of mp or ipod in there house

The psp has a lot more shooters and is better for there quality online games. I have killzone liberation and play it online. You could play that online, without buying any other games, for a good year. The DS is more of a laid back kind of system when the psp is more of a shooter blood stuff .. Not to mention the Video (you CAN watch youtubes), Music (downloaded or internet radio), The PSN store And plus if you hack it its just that much better
??????? shooters wTf um one it has no shooters wtf r u talking about killzone O_o GAMES TRASH 2 psp HALF the games neva go online wtf kind of racing games does not go online 3 youtube wtf dont we all have computers of some sort one it laggy and slow as hell ds more laid back? hm i dono man i for know that ds has better shooters i mean how can u play a shooter with out another analog stick hm ewwww must feel horrible to play a shooter on psp hwo do u aim?? ew let me gess the face bottons and u move woth the anolog thats just sad lol space invaders medal of honer sypon filter ur done thats all it has that r even of a decent rateing an dum blood does no make a game good neva herd of that before if u want shooters ds has Dementium: The Ward, call of duty brothers and arms metriod hunters contra metal slug seven i dont care mutch but rilly ds has some vilent games if u wana bring that in so give me a break stop with the fanboy crap an dgo with facts and by thw way more ds games go online then psp none fact monster hunter doesn ot even go online for psp i mean wtf is with that its and ONLINE GAAAAAAAME
