you forgot to mention pricier
the DS Lite is the same price as the original, isnt it?
The "crap games" problem that plagued the PSP for so long is pretty much over. Currently, I only have Megaman Maverick Hunter X for the PSP, and I'm getting Megaman Powered Up (most insane amount of replay value ever: stage creator, and you can play through the game as all the bosses) on wednesday. these two games alone will make the system worth owning for me.
I do want to get Armored Core Formula Front, and PoPoLoCrois eventually too. oh, and both Metal Gear Ac!d games. Daxter is looking like one hell of a game, and I cant wait to play it.
There's no reason to choose one portable over the other. they both have great games, you just have to look around for them.
Wait for a DS Lite, Ds Lite is Mother's love!
I don't think it is by much. If you don't have a DS, and you want one, might as well get the lite.
but the others are right, might as well save up for the DS and have both. It you can look past the loading times, unneeded firmware upgrades, and subpar battery life of the psp, it will have a great library of games during its lifespan, as will the DS.
Except Psp has like what 5 good games to the DS's 50?
50? name them.
Yeah, no kidding. I'd LOVE to see a list of 50 truly great games for the DS.
New Mario brothers
Super princess Peach
Mario and Luigi
Super MArio Kart
Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney
Advanced Wars Dual Strike
Castelvania Dawn of Sorrow
Metroid Prime: Hunters
Kirby Canvas Curse
Feel the Magic
Metroid Prime Pinball
That's off the top of my head, I can also throw all the GBA games into the mix since it officially plays those as well... and adding GBA would throw the number WAY over 50.
Backwards compatibility doesn't count. That's like saying the PS2 had a library of 300+ games on the day it was released.
Opinion is a wonderful thing, it's chewy like gum and long like string.
Actually, I think that list is everything worth playing on the DS, which is 17 games. a long way from 50.
and yeah, GBA doesnt count.
I still play Animal Crossing! Advanced Wars is good also.
Get Castlevania DS and Sonic Rush, they are damn good games.
No price has been confirmed for the US. Rumor puts it at $130. The Japanese market has seen extremly high DS demand and popularity, creating shortages and price gouging, so that is why import shops are charging so much for the new system. The DS has been my friend, and the PSP collects dust, so I say, wait for the DS lite, save the money for it in the mean time, and for the love of God, get Sonic, Castlevania and Trauma Center.
does the Lite have the GBA Port???
I know TT... I'm getting sick of these questions too.
I do believe the GBA port DOES count in the DS's favor. Since it's well over a year later and GBA games are still being released.
The day the PS2 was released PS1 games pretty much became extinct, but I WOULD definately take backwards compatibility into account when it came to title selection for a console I was purchasing.
The DS by far has a much wider, and varied library than the PSP does. It may eventually change, my opinion is that it won't.
That being said, I plan on buying a PSP when the price drops for the Megaman games, movies (I ride the bus/train a lot), and to mod it to play my NES emulator off the memory card.
You said DS. not GBA. No one in this thread asked about the game selection for the GBA.
if GBA games are allowed in the DS' count, then all the systems the PSP can emulate count just as equally. Which hilariously enough, also includes GBA games.
hmm, for the DS there's Castlevania...and....Castlevania....
For the PSP there's Grand Theft Auto...and....Grand Theft Auto....
Not much difference.
