Yes/No: The PSP may or may not be better, but the DS is more user-friendly.

#1MetaKirbyFanPosted 6/26/2010 8:57:24 PM
I was excited when I first got my PSP, but I noticed that it was very overwhelming to get started; all the switches, and "WPA format" (which I have no idea what that means), constant system updates, the fact that I need a memory stick just to save my games, the two-piece recharger cord......I just found the DS very easy to get into without needing to consult the instruction book every five minutes when something goes wrong.

Thoughts?

I sort of agree, but it was fun tinkering with all the PSP stuff out of the box though.

WPA was complicated? DS was a complete ***** to get online.

Still, I did find messing around with the GAME folder, putting that .tiff in place, and rebooting the system over and over again in an attempt to get the screen to flash a few pretty colours a little annoying.

Uh..do you mean grandpa friendly?

Not sure if you remember how "user-friendly" friend codes were. That system single handedly ruined any sort of possibility of any online community for games such as Pokemon.

Fix the whole online act, problem solved. Really, that was the only problem the DS had concerning being user friendly. You had to use these redunant friend codes and you also had to use a WEP secured connection, which is old and outdated. Your DSi can connect to WEP secured wifi? Screw that, you still have to go with WEP.

Which reminds me, i gotta go out and find an unsecured WEP connection again to get that Jirachi...

PSP is difficult to use? Ya know, I often forget how brain dead the average consumer is... then I come to Gamefaqs and get reminded.

I have both PSP and DS.

I play my DS more. However, It's probably due to me owning a Ds for longer and have so many more games for it.

"PSP is difficult to use? Ya know, I often forget how brain dead the average consumer is... then I come to Gamefaqs and get reminded."

Most people on FAQs are above average, because the fact they use a forum and have access to a knowledge base to try to find answers for their questions and stay up on current tech. However with that said, their are still plenty of FAQs users who are beyond helping.

I would give a FAQs member a one up on the average retail consumers. I used to be a computer salesman and OMG there were some ignorant people out their, but they put more money in my pocket though so I cant complain.
