Why are you people calling everyone who defends the PSP a fanboy?

Not to mention you're comparing a 5-year old device with one that's not out yet. Obviously the 3DS is going to have some benefits (though the PSP actually has a better resolution, larger screen than the 3DS still...)

But versus the original DS, the PSP is more attractive to me. Games for it which I loved:

-crisis core
-disgaea
-disgaea 2
-peace walker
-MH freedom unite
-and i'm sure birth by sleep

DS had more, better, games, yes, but as good as those games were, not many of them had a very serious vibe to them. No, I'm not saying "zomg i'm hardcore gamer i hate kiddie gaemz" but the games just didn't feel fulfilling.

And then people act like the PSP was a complete failure even though it sold a decent amount and had hardware that was vastly superior to the first DS.

The only thing that really made the DS better was more support for it.

DS had more good games, but when the PSP got a good game, oooh, it was stellar.

Shuriko, I would applaud you for the attempt at trying to get people to stop trying to pick needless fights over which is the better console but I recommend you instead find a flame shield/healer.

I mean, this is exactly the sort of thing both the PSP and DS boards on GameFAQs have been dealing with on nearly a daily basis for something like 5 years now. So while a good idea, this attempt is likely just going to fan the flames.

The only thing that really made the DS better was more support for it.

That's always the main reason for owning any console. I think PSP hate is justified, I own one, and aside from 5 games, if I could go back in time and never have bought it I would. I'd miss Lumines (greatest puzzle game of all time) but I could go without it.

Then again I bought my PSP in 2007, and I had no idea the DS library would get so good. I guess hindsight is 20/20.

Also the PSP has slightly larger screen but the DS has two (and there's the XL). The DS just makes more sense than the PSP, having a second screen is great for a handheld, and having an optional touch screen just gives you that many more options. The PSP's battery life is about half that of a DS at the lowest brightness, the speakers are weak, the library has too many games that don't make sense as portable games.

The biggest flaw of the PSP is that it'll always be a portable weaker PS2. The DS's greatest strength is not only it's developer support, but I could never go back to having one screen and no touch screen. Also the clamshell design should be standard post GBA sp, no exceptions.

Props to you for standing up for the PSP here. It's ridiculous how much it gets bashed, although I do wish mine got a little more usage. However, it is understandable since this is the 3DS board I guess.

I'm just bracing for impact when/if the PSP2 gets announced. If it's anything like the old days... this will seem tame.

BTW, anyone here remember TechniMyoko? The Pictoquest thread got me slightly nostalgic about the old DS vs PSP days.

Yeah he was outed for not being a girl, rofl. Remember the days of Dash JR, Bendilin, Phange 2, wild PSP vs DS times.

Old names are popping up like no tomorrow. Techni was fun to mess around with. I think I've seen Dash Jr post a bit still. Phange is on the PSP boards still, I think.

lol

If only the PSP2 would be announced. The explosion will be immense. I wonder which side will fire first. Especially if the PSP2 does 3D as well.

TechniMyoko as I recall she (he?) goes by a similar name on the PSN underground boards (posts mostly on the GAP). I haven't been posting there lately, but doubt she's gone.
