The PSP seams to be a step forward in gaming. Perosnaly i would rate it 5 stars, but if i was searching through all the reviews then i wouldn't bother with reviews that just say excelent excelent excelent. The PSP seams to have gone for the new age type games that you would expect to find on a PS2 whereas the DS has all the classics (eg. Mario, Zelda, Wario and Pokémon). The DS is clever with its touch screen but the games seam to be too much like GBA games (of which a GBA SP i already own). The PSP is like a MP3 Player, MP4 player, Portable movie player, Portable internet browser and Handheld console. Buying an MP3 Player, DS and portable DVD player would cost around the £350-£400 mark whereas the PSP (+ 1gb memory card) is around £250. All-in-all i think the PSP is better and half the poeple i know with DS's wish they had bought a PSP instead.
