Both look like they'll be good. The DS will be less expensive and the two screen idea is certainly unique.

PinkSpider: Who'll get Final Fantasy is a mystery(although I heard someone say FF7 will be rereleased as a PSP game). Sony used to get them all but recently Nintendo got 2 FF games, Tactics Advance and Crystal Chronicles. So maybe Nintendo will get a new game and Sony will have a remake or two but you never know.

I think the DS looks coolest, as it has the retro game and watch look about it, Image the next set of game and watch gallery remakes on those double screens, Donky Kong WOOT.

Having said that if the PSP doesnt turn out too expensive I can see I will be getting a PSP, but probably after it has dropped furthur in price (I only just got a PS2).

While on the subject of PSP anyone notice the little PSP logo on the packaging at E3 looks like a GP32 ???

The PSP has Final Fantasy. I`ve downloaded and watched the Pulse special on E4 and it has presentations on both handhelds. Release games on the DS look to be Mario,mario kart and zelda(all in gorgeous 3d) PSP has a final fantasy game,4 EA sports games and what looked to be soul calibar.

If you want to get hold of the video and use newsgroups you can find it here -

I kno about nintendo gettin new ff games but they aint exactly what we'd call classic final fantasy r they? It's like a turn based combat game and an action adventure so far. Not exactly a FF style RPG.

I'll be getting a DS as it will actually be completely new, original games, wheras the PSP will be getting pretty much all ports of old PS and PS2 games (of which I have liked absolutely none yet) due to production costs. I read a very good article on IGN which explains this. Plus the DS has better multiplayer support and will be MUCH cheaper.

the problem with nintendo is the fact that they're kiddie friendly and they don't have many gorry games so to me they're the children of the gaming market.

yeah...i would probobly like the horror games...its just that my room is next to my parents and i don't think waking them up at 3 am in the morning by yelling "OH SHIT ANOTHER ONE!!!!!!!" would be a good idea :D they get really pissy when sleep deprived :ph34r:
