Just wondering what you think about the handhelds? Do you play PSP, DS or something else and why? What games would you recommend? What are the pros and cons of either system?


I play my DS way way more than I play my PSP. Currently there just aren't any games that peak my interest for the PSP. I just bought Star Fox Command last night for my DS and it's pretty sweet so far.

I barely have time for console games, by the way I highly recommend Dirge of Cerberus, let alone handhelds. Sorry. The last handheld I had was whichever Nintendo one had Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on it, but that was such a disappointment that I never picked up again.

My friends totally ripped me for buying nintendogs but oh well that game was tight. I did feel like an *** talking to my DS though

I heard Dirge of Cerebus wasn't all that great..... I do love all the new FF7 spinoff stuff and was really looking foward to this game but I read a really bad review on gamespot.com. Have you played it?

Played it and beat it. Thought it was a lot of fun and since I love FF7 that was a bonus for me. The reviews I read said the main downfall was the lack of difficulty and shotty controls, but if you put the aiming on manual the first time through aiming becomes more fun. Then play on Extra Hard when you beat it and it's a lot more challenging.

DS all the way. So far I've got New Super Mario Bros, Brain Age (Addictive...), and Resident Evil (Classic). The DS just has a better line of titles coming with the Final Fantasy 3 remake, The Zelda: WInd Waker sequal, Children of Mana, Star Fox Command, and the Castlevania games.

I'm with DS. PSP may have better graphics but the ds has more innovative gameplay. The touch screen was created by...

Chuck Norris!!!

I have both and say that both are great systems.

PSP is that take everwhere system. You got the games,movies,music,pics and internet(someplaces) all in one. I absolutely will not travel without it. Games are getting better but they not a consistent flow of good games. That and they need to add something that will get people interested in it again.
Cant wait for that new MGS though.

DS has the games on lock. DS lite is was just the perfect "model upgrade". The touch screen just gives it so many possibilties.

Just picked up that new Star Fox today. Went to like 4 stores to find that joint.

I have neither, and don't really want either.

Gameboy Advance all the way.

I played Starfox Command like crazy last night, and I must say I am really impressed. It reminds me of a cross between Starfox 64 and Starfox for Super Nintendo with a little stategy thrown in for good measure. Beat it once and that allows you to unlock different pathways thought the story for great replay value. On my second time through I got to fly as some of the ships from the Starwolf team. Sweet! It looks like there are a ton of different endings depending what route you take........
