I'm thinking about buying one next month.
Any good games for it?
Should I get the DS instead?
Pro's and cons compared to DS?

If you get one, hack it.

I hacked it, and now I play it way more. There are so many applications/homebrew that you can put on it.

Buy a DS. Much larger library of good games because all the developers noticed it was selling better. I had a PSP Slim for a while and ended up trading it in because I beat all the games I liked for it. All three of them.

You don't even have to hack the DS, though. Just put its game ISOs on an SD card and you can play its entire library for free.

I don't own one, BTW, but srsly.

No, that's illegal. Why would I do something illegal? :rolleyes:

2-1 for the PSP :)

I own both, and I kind of regret buying the DS. I liked the PSP a lot because my MP3 broke down and I used the PSP as a portable media player instead (films too!). I never got too many games for it, but the best game for it is Killzone: Liberation.

For the DS... I liked Phoenix Wright 1 because it was unique and creative, also Objection! is satisfyin!

I had a PSP. Was fun until I got bored of playing Suikoden/MGS/Socom games. Definitely get the Nintendo DS if you like awesome RPGs and badass mario games. Also the stylus is pretty awesome and the system isn't fragile as hell!!!


Also Xzi knows what he is talking about. Except I won't say more...

You used your PsP poorly sir.

But only get one if you want to hack the shit out of it. Only good to have one if you do that.

That or if you like me can't stand the DS split-screen crap and most of the games on it.

Well no, you can't just put them on an SD card. You need a flash cartridge, with which you can use a microSD card to run .nds files or even run emulation, play music, etc.

There's also no microSD card that could fit the entire DS library on it that I know of, not going into the fact that you're gimping developers like hell by pirating games that are still on the market.

One thing that would be nice and that I would consider doing if I actually played a decent amount of DS games would be buying the games (so the devs still get their money), then putting them on an SD card so I could play multiple different games without switching (or carrying) cartridges.

God of War: Chains of Olympus
Final Fantasy: Crisis Order

Crisis Order? What kind of fanboi are you, the game is called Crisis Core.

Would, let's say... a Snes emulator work on PSP?
Not that I'm considering it at all, just brought up the first application that came to mind.

Um, some Flashcards support SDHC 8gb sd chips. So yah you can fit a hefty amount of games. Also lmao $40 for a freaking overpriced game is not my style. Maybe for Chrono Trigger or FF3 but for other games....

Sorry, didn't mean you could fit the entire library on one card, but you can have access to the entire library a few games at a time.

If it existed, yes, but you probably couldn't just transfer ZSNESW or snes9x over onto it. (I don't know anything about how PSP homebrew works, so I could be wrong, but you'd pretty much have to be running windows on the PSP to run those programs, and I doubt it has that kind of hardware.) In other words, someone would have to develop a PSP SNES emulator.

Upon doing a little research, snes9x seems to have a PSP port, but it appears to be version 0.02, so I wouldn't expect great game compatibility (especially considering that the DS emulators have pretty poor game compatibility themselves and have higher version numbers; mine is version 0.6).

Also, at the rate this is going, ibtl.

You're too pure, alfar!
No, I just care enough about game developers actually putting out new, good games that I'm willing to pay to play the ones that are already out. I also play very few games (last games I bought were Metroid Prime 3 and SSBB), and so I don't lose a lot of money out of it.

You can play Snes and GBA games on it? Vastly superior game lineup. Flashcards also give the NDS the ability to view movies/play music.

So can the PsP? But I can also play sega, PS1, NES, DOS, and other games on it.

Neglecting ports, I really, really doubt there's a fully functional PSX emulator for the PSP. Emulation takes more hardware power than the actual console by its very nature, and the PSP's hardware specs are pretty much identical to the PSX. But I haven't done any research, so I could be wrong.

Similarly, the DS has no N64 emulators, even though some of its games have essentially been N64 ports (there was a port of Super Mario 64 for example as I recall).

The DS has NES emulators for sure.

DOS...meh, games like that were built for the PC, and so should stay there.

The PSP probably has the DS beat in the Sega area, though there weren't many good games on that console anyway.

Lawl, sega fails. Also for handhelds I don't bother purchasing many games since most suck ass and aren't worth the pricetag. So having a flashcard is a plus.

Shining Force 1-2
Golden Axe
Master of Monsters
Mutant League Football and Hockey
Phantasy Star
Streets of Rage
Mortal Combat

Are good for me from sega. Beyond that don't think there much more I liked from it.

Lets get the fanboys fighting. I'll stand in for sony, who backs nintendo?

Psps are more powerful than the original ps1, thats just how good it is.
Plus internet, plus internet radio (which I actually USE), plus music if you have spare space to burn but an IPOD or mp3 player is where its at for that really, plus video playback (i watched all 3 matrix films over 3 nights in bed. I didn't buy them, but borrowed them from a friend. The hi-rez makes it look good as well), competitive multiplayer games through wireless. There is some functionality between the psp and ps3 but its not really been captialized on yet. Potential future usb attachments, for example a hi rez camera (which is already out).

An arguement for the DS is 'wide library of games'. Ok they have a lot of games but thats only if you include the rehashed mario games, the film to game games and the barbie / pet sim games.

Otherwise you end up with nothing.

I look up 'buy ds games' and I found a buy 42 ds games for £38 deal. Shows you how much their 'massive range of games' is actually worth.

Here you go.

1. FIFA Street 3 LAME REHASH SEQUEL

2. FIFA Street 2 LAME REHASH SEQUEL

3. FIFA 2008 LAME REHASH SEQUEL, the above football games are all the same

4. Dungeon Explorer - Warrior Of The Ancient Arts Ahh, a dungeon crawler. Nice and gripping...-.-'

5. Naruto : Ninja Destiny Better on the psp me thinks?

6. Naruto : Path Of The Ninja See above ^^

7. Naruto Ninja Council 3 See above ^^

8. Pokemon Pearl Do I even need to say it?

9. The Legend Of Spyro The Eternal Night Platformers died in the '90s. Bring it up to the present kthx

10. Contra 4 Ahh, a nice repetitive side scrolling rehashed sequel. 11th in series methinks?

11. Need For Speed Pro Street I bet its ugly as sin

12. Power Ranger : Super Legends Go go, bargain bin!

13. Ultimate Mortal Kombat Ok thats one nice game

14. Call Of Duty 4 Could be fun, shame it claims to be the same game as the REAL version. Hit or miss.

15. WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2008 Wrestling games are for rednecks

16. Mario Kart DS If you bought a DS, this is probably why you did it. But then, who isn't sick of mario? Everyone not counted obviously.

17. Super Mario 64 DS see above

18. Pokemon Trozei Do you liek mudkipz? No? Me neither

19. Scooby Doo Unmasked :bang:

20. Incredibles - Rise Of The Underminer :bang:

21. Nicktoons Unite Form of! Rubbish game!

22. Kim Possible Global Gemini :bang:

23. The Sims 2 : Pets only girls like the sims, so unless your getting a ds to impress your girlfriend and haven't already gotten sims 2 for her -> pass

24. Dora The Explorer : Dora Saves The Mermaid yet another girl aventurer game

25. Imagine Babyz :bang:

26. Barbie In The 12 Dancing Princesses :bang:

27. Crazy Frog Racer :bang:

28. Princess Nathasha :bang:

29. Strawberry Shortcake Strawberryland :bang:

30. Impossible Mission :bang:

31. Brain Buster Puzzle Pack Ahh. Puzzle video games. The sort you THINK will be good for a long plane journey, but you find you skip most of the hard ones then 'accidently' end up leaving in the back of the seat in front of you

32. Sega Presents Touch Darts point end away from face

33. Puppy Luv Spa And Resort noooooo

34. Balls Of Fury I had to look this up, and its another film -> game. weak.

35. The Bee Game film -> game

36. Schaackmat when i googled this i got porn, so huh. must be good. thats two.

37. Word Jong any jong incarnation is never worth shit

38. Solitaire DS everyone got tired of it years ago when people realised that just an OS system didn't make your computer very fun

39. How The Grinch Stole Christmas :bang:

40. Betty Boop's Double Shift as if you do, honestly

41. Super Fruit Fall Yay, another shitty casual game that could easily have been made by pop cap. suitable for bored housewives only

42. Super Collapse 3 sounds like anyone who plays this will


If you looked through that list and though "Wow! the DS really DOES have more better games", then you're probably only just mentally capable to warrant using one, and owning a psp would just prove too much.

I really like the DS, there are some really original games on it that are a lot of fun to play. With the flash carts you can play snes and nes games on the DS, but the SNES emu doesn't have the best compatibility. The PSP has an emu for SNES games, but I don't know how good it is.

If you like puzzle games, RPG's and point and click adventures, I'd say the DS is the way to go. If you like action games, go with the PSP.
