I bought one on the day of release with Super Mario. Its a pretty nifty piece of kit, the touch screen is perfect and it feels good in your hands. The way they have utilised the dual screen is impressive too, and its not sluggish in anyway, it shifts those polygons like no ones business . It has a built in rechargable battery which saves you alot of money in the long run. Also it has blue tooth built in so you can play against friends within a certain distance (say from 60-100 meters in the book). And there is Internet capabilitys for it, with a few online games comming out soon, which sounds interesting to say the least.

On the downside though, theres not many games out for it so far, that why I only bought Mario with it!

I think the PSP will be alot better, it has better graphics and much better game maker support, with around 30 titles on release! But im alittle warey of the battery life because of the PSP's big vibrant screen. And its going to cost 200, where as the DS is only (well i say only in a loose way) 100.

I think if you have the money for both you should definatly get the DS, and if you only have enough for one, I would go for the PSP without a doubt.

I like my DS, i think the touch screen idea was good... especially for Metroid. but i belive the PSP will dominate over it (hate saying that since im a nintendo geek!) but the DS isnt even the official successor to the GBA.... in fact it is just a way to get games out in the memory card form for nintendos next handheld!! i think it was to be called the "Game Man" or something like that. supposed to come out in a few years. wonder what that'll be like...

The DS is 100 for the console on its own, then the games are 30 a pop!


The PSP is due for release on the 29th April. And will be priced at 200 with the games ranging from 30 to 40 each.

I havent tried that chat thing with the DS yet, everytime ive been on it no one else has been on! I'm such a loner .
