I bought a DS Lite for my gf this Xmas, and after looking/playing with it I've decided a handheld console seems like a great idea.
I've looked into both for a while, but cannot decide which is the better idea?
I love top end graphics and good kit, which would side me more with the PSP, and I also have a Nintendo Wii so can get the DS counterpart games for it as and when they come out, but the DS seems to have a more fun approach to things.
I'm a 26yr old male and like different/interesting/fun games. I do tend to get bored of the same old thing pretty quickly, but recently completed Need For Speed Carbon and Most Wanted enjoying those, and have enjoyed Oblivion. I like racing games occasionally, fps's as long as they arent just the same old stuff, and rts's are good now and then! Basically I think the DS might have more original titles out there? Oh, and I cant stand special ops sneaky sneaky team leader rubbish, I just wanna get in and shoot things!
The decent games as far as I've been told/read for the DS are
Mario Kart DS (never played mario kart, any good? looks fun)
New Super Mario (never really liked platformers)
Meteos (sounds interesting?)
Elite Beat Agents (got this for the other half, looked ok altho not really my thing on first glance)
Animal Crossing (apparently great, got it for the gf, but looks like a bit of a girly/kids game?)
Metroid Prime Hunters (apparently a great fps for the ds?)
Trauma Centre (got it for gf, looks wicked and unique)
Nintendogs (got it for gf, not my thing tho, more for girls/kids?)
For the PSP
Lumines (sounds good?)
Wipeout Pure (i loved wipeout years ago)
GTA LCS and VCS (I bought the ps2 for GTA SA, who didn't quite honestly?! both sound great)
Ridge Racers (sounds like a top racer)
Burnout Legends (got Burnout Takedown for PS2, fun but doesn't really last that long)
Virtua Tennis (loved the dreamcast one)
LocoRoco (lol, this looks like something really decent, something happy for a change!)
So at the moment game wise methinks PSP. What do you all think out there? Any views on the above games? Anyone my age group that has both consoles or a preference?
Thanks to any help ya'all can give!
Oh and any 'cheapest' links to anything I've mentioned is always welcomed :)
