I choose the Nintendo DS. I am a full Sony supporter, as a matter of fact i hate Nintendo, always have, but i just cant be satisfied with 2 hours of game paly. Nintendo DS provides decent 3d graphics with 2 screens for easy display of scores and game. I dont like the design of the DS, the PSP looks much better, but i bet if the Nintendo improved or made another colour (which they will) like "Black" that would look much better. Sorry Sony, but Nintendo wins this round.

Graphics isn't every thing. Dont forget that 2 hours of game play feels like 10 minutes and if your on a long trip, why should you carry a massive PSP and a huge mfkn battery pack which just adds onto the weight.

PSP is only slightly bigger than GBA. Battery life was just an estimation, the 2 hours you speak of was for playing Movies not games, besides for all we know they may improve the battery life before it launches. Also if you are in the car, as if you wouldnt plug your psp into the cigarette lighter!

I personally intend to get both PSP and DS, both look impressive in their own right!

No honestly i think they will find a solution to the battery power and you said psp is heavy did you see the specs its not that bad and i think the better graphics and much longer list of developers and the cool look it has easily sways it for me

what are you talking about. the sony representative said ( and this was posted at ign as offical news) that psp battery will last for 10 hours over all battery life and how fast the battery is drained depends on what functions you are using on psp. but so far nothing has been confirmed.

Im sorry but the DS just beats the PSP. WiFi internet connection for online play, voice recognition , Touch screen technolgy, and wireless 16 player lan. PSP just sounds bland in comparison just a PS2 that you can walk around with plus thoses renders of the DS make it look a bit shit look at a real picture of it it aint that bad although i do agree the psp does have a slightly better desighn.

All the features of the psp have not been revealed yet,.,.,

I will probably get the ds at some time when the price is lower than it starts out as which will be cheap and i will definatly get the psp as long as it is no more than 180..

The dude said 10 hours for Music and Games and 2.5 hours for watching a movie.

2.5 movies (hmm does that mean we cant watch lord of the rings)
10 for games and music.

i cant believe you said so of this...how is one screen a disadvantage!? you play everything with one screen! how is that a disadvantage? PS repeats? i didnt hear of any PS repeats they are compltly new games...except GT4 and Ape Escape..but i think thats a PSP specail not a repeat. i mean Metal Gear Acid...never heard of that one...Death Jr. many more...and you put something about an advantage is a big screen then in disadvantages you put to big. one or the other dude pick

elheber

Very well, single screen isn't a disadvantage... but cost may be. I was surprised i didn't read price in the comparison.

I'd still get the PSP for the sole reason of having the power of a PS2 in my hands. If it isn't as powerful i'd be real dissapointed.

Psp for me, PS2 quality games in your pocket, not much more needed!
and for those who cant get it through their head 8-10 hours of gameplay, and im sure it will increase by the time it is released.

the 1 screen was a disadvantage because the DS has two screens. so in theory i should erase the single screen thing, but anyways...

i dont see how a movie could drain a battery faster than a game. they both have high quality picture and sound and both use a disc. it just dosnt make any sense.

I think that when they said "game", they meant Pong running off the RAM.

I'd imagine that a movie would have to keep the disk spinning for the full 2 hours, where with a game, you can load a level then spin it down. Depending on how long it takes to spin back up, may not even be noticable (not like we aren't using to seeing "LOADING" messages already LOL!)

you have just gain some respect from me for that post, and you are correct. since the PSP has much smaller textures it can pre-cache the textures and not need to go back to the UMD for information every 5 seconds. any type of disc drive are very power hungry. especially when moving at full speed for 2.5 hours. while with games the textures are cached then swapped when needed with the disc drive. given the PSP's cores probly use 90nm tech with less transistors meaning the PSP's EE does not need near the power that the Ps2's (especially old ones) uses.

First Post: L3XO you say the PSP is Large and Heavy, then the DS much be near the size of the PSP, thicker and just as heavy, why are these not dis-advantages for the DS? surely you have read and weighed the PSP and DS then measures there sizes before using weight and size as a factor? i've seen the movies of the guys and girls holding the PSP, it looks far from large.

I agree. im sure it was 2 hours for audio+visual(games, movies) and 10 hours for audio(mp3). Though gaming will last longer than movies because of less disk activity.

Stinkin Mushroom
05-15-2004, 11:23 PM
It's 2 hours for movies but for games it will be longer! Think about it, a movie uses all the time the UMD and read it all the time! for the games it loads the level and then it doesn't really use it anymore ... the UMD for games is used when loading, not all the time that you play o it will be about 7 - 8 hours of play i think !

ultimategamer2004
05-15-2004, 11:27 PM
Nope only 2 and a half hours of gameplay.

ainsley
05-15-2004, 11:44 PM
1 things for sure and thats the UMD will drain the most juice of all components in the PSP, which begs the question, which is better, UMD or cartridge?

UMD:
Pros: cheaper? more capacity

Cons: Probably not 100% jump free, drains juice (not disk itself, the drive motor), information needs to be loaded

Cartridge:
Pros: 100% jump free, likely not to drain juice like umd cos theres no motors, no loading screens!

Cons: Expensive, less capacity than UMD.

Nintendo made the mistake of using catridges in the n64 in my opinion, but this time sticking with cartridges for handheld gaming is probably the right thing to do.

i should of created a new vote thread for this.

Ok, you guys are just saying stuff out of your a$$

a) PSP willl load a game, then the disc drive can power down, therefore, 8-10 hours of gameplay on a single charge is MORE than ENOUGH. How old are you people? Do you really want to sit there for like 10 hours straight like a complete moron playing a game on a handheld? I bet your back will start to hurt and you'll get pretty stiff after only two hours, then you'll turn off the PSP, go to the washroom, and get back to your miserable life.

b) DO NOT COMPARE DS to PSP, completely different machines, safe to say I'm not going to blow my money on either, because face it, handheld gaming is for little kids no matter who makes the system. When ever I see middle aged men play games on their cell phones only the word "dork" comes to mind. I had a prof at my University who had Gameboy SP, and safe to say I kinda lost respect for him cause he was so excited about it like it the greatest fucking thing he ever saw, judging that he had an iMac, GBA graphics were probably something he's never seen before but still, the guy was 40 and his wife was just shaking her head.

c) Some girls like games, but not all, and girls need attention, so if you a get a girlfriend and go on a trip, its safe to say she is not going to tolerate you ignoring her, or even worse, she'll take the damn thing away from you and play it herself, ignoring you, and you'll feel pretty fucking bad because a little PSP is more interesting than you are.

d) Get the point?

e) Bite me.

The ds will use discs and that will have about 10 hours of gaming before needing a recharch. The psp uses discs but they might be a different type so I think it'll have about 5 hours before needing a recharge. If it did only last 2 hours then you woudn't have time to save in some games before the battery goes. That would be a waste of time.

I'm not going to blow my money on either, because face it, handheld gaming is for little kids no matter who makes the system.

You my friend are a moron, plain and simple, you are just insecure with yourself and a prude and you think people should follow your miserable way of life. You are acting childish by trying desperately to act like an adult.

safe to say I kinda lost respect for him cause he was so excited about it

The Anti-moron software on my PC went crazy when i saw this one right here, you lose respect in people just because they get excited about something, this explains a lot.

Some girls like games, but not all, and girls need attention

Evidently you have no girlfriend, and its safe to say you really dont know anything about having a relationship with someone because if you did you wouldnt be saying these things, and do you really think people are going to let their gaming get in between their girlfriend/wife ?

In closing I have to say that all of us were refreshed and challenged by your insignificant point of view, now get lost.
