5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Games, 19 Jun 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Base Unit Console: Black (PSP) (Video Game)
If you're anything like me, and you are reading reviews about a PSP, you already have your heart set on a hand held console. Then, the only real decision, is Nintendo DS or Sony PSP? Now, I have not played the former, but I plumbed for the latter, and how glad I am that I did.

It is purely for games that I purchased this bit of kit (though it has far more to offer), and maybe the odd UMD film in time. Now, as an RPG fan, I was torn by the DS bringing out FF3, and this seemed to suggest that they had the final fantasy licence. But a brief bit of reserach showed that a prequel to FFVII and a Wild Arms title are due for release on the PSP, amongst other very intriguing offerings.

At the time of writing (18/06/2007) the range of titles on both were fairly even, and not that numerous. So, I suppose, you have to consider the capability of both systems, and the future. On that respect alone, and the PSP having the more powerful processor, it is highly likely that Sony will triumph again, and churn out the superior titles.

To be honest, neither have taken off as their parent corporations would have hoped. Both have also been superceded in importance. Sony concentrates on the flagship PS3, while Nintendo have managed the Wii, which consumes much of its resources. But don't think the noble handheld systems are being entirely neglected. Do not be tempted by the smaller price tag of the DS, and do not make the same mistake as me with the PSP, i.e forgetting to by a memory stick. The PSP has the brighter future, and the most utilities. It also has a vested interest in producing games aimed at a more mature (albeit slightly) audience, while the DS has targetted children.
