    Well I have finally broken down and ordered a DS Lite (en route from Amazon.ca). I may have actually stumbled on a second one... still deciding on that one.

    I do own a PSP already, but have not been that impressed with it. Although, I am excited to hear that Ratchet & Clank are coming in 2007. The only games I actually still own are Megaman Maverick Hunter X & Lumines.

    The question is: Do I keep the PSP (even for the 1 game I am looking forward to)? Even though I rarely play it... hell... I don't even know where it is right now. The game library on the DS is so much appealing. So, is it worth it to keep the PSP and hope that the games do finally improve? Or should I cut my losses and ditch it now while there is still some value in it?

    I'd banish it to eBay while it still has value, but that's just me.

    Welcome to the ever growing club.

    I say keep it though...Maybe, just maybe in a year or two there will be some absolute gems that you can't pass up on the PSP, then you will be kicking yourself. Until then, it makes for a pretty paperweight.

    Keep it. I went through something similar when I got the DS when it first came out. Soon I didn't touch it. This was when it was first out. I sold it. Now I wish I still had it so I could play Nintendogs, Pheonix Wright, Trauma Center, etc.

    there are good PSP games out there. Plus it does more than just games. I say keep it. Use it for MP3s and videos for a while.

    My rule: NEVER get rid of game Hardware!

    Just use your PSP for videos, pics, and MP3s if you dont use it for games. Or in a year or so, if nothing is good out, you can take some risk and put a nice modchip into your PSP for homebrew and stuff.

    And if you like platform games, have you given a look at Daxter? Its quite a short game, but I would suggest at least renting it to see if you enjoy it.

    The only reason I would consider getting a PSP is emulation.

    This thread had me tempted to sell my PSP for a moment, then I was reminded of the Metal Slug collection coming out.
