IGN: DS vs. PSP showdown - Which has the best games?

If you're in the market for a handheld gaming machine right now you face a hard decision. How do you choose between the N-Gage and the Neo Geo Pocket? Sorry, the Nintendo DS and the PlayStation Portable. It's an interesting two horse race, simply because both systems are highly capable, and both have very distinct strengths and weaknesses. Rather than go into those – which IGN are sure you're well versed on anyway – IGN have decided to evaluate each system by the single most important factor: their games.

After all, it's not the tech specs or the name on the case that's important, it's the gameplay on offer.

PSP wins with custom firmware/emulators/POPS

...for me its got to be the PSP, many because of HOMEBREW allowing me to play any game on and console from PS1 backwards.

I'm starting to put serious consideration for getting a PSP.
Kind of odd in the article they didn't do a conclusion... that was like number 1 rule when I had to write essays at school.

[EDIT] - Well I hope your happy now....I just got it on order with 3 games.

Well if emulators are your thing DS does have them as well. In terms of games that you buy DS has the medal for that :)

Have you heard of the R4 REVOLUTION?? there are a few other brands but that the best i know of.

i URGE any DS owners to look into it. its worth every penny, i have a friend with over 100 games on his + video + themes.

yea that's pretty slick what people make for these handhelds.

PSP I think is more user friendly in the homebrew arena though which is why more people like the PSP for emulators
