    PSP = are they any good?

    I have a DS but want another portable game system. I have heard Little Big Planet is good, but what other games? Is a PSP good? What are the different types of PSP - I have seem many versions of the PSP when I look on Amazon?

    Also are thet any good deals?

    well,I have both-the ds is great for the brain training/prof layton stuff and mario kart is the bomb.

    the big advantage of the ds is the kids games I reckon but my style of game is tiger woods/gran tourismo/fifa etc and the psp is the portable system to go for on these styles of games-the ds is more "cartoony" in style and graphics,the psp is the one for realism-was playing the new formula one game on psp today and its amazing.

    not having a go at the ds btw-just think its 2 different styles. for sports/driving games(mario kart aside) the psp is the one.

    Thanks Barky....anyone else?

    Little big planet isn't on the psp I don't think. It's only on the ps3 as far as I know

    PSP is in my opinion the best handheld console. The graphics are great, you get an internet browser, microphone, lots of stuff, and you get good games such as Gran Turismo, LBP etc

    The best deal i guess is currently on Very, with the £30 off code its about £117 for a PSP 3000 and a game
    Well there may be better ones though but thats after a quick browse

    Its a decent console, just not enough 'must have' games though in my opinion.

    The webrowser is (was? haven't used it for 2 years) awfully slow though.

    PSP is much better than a DS imo

    bigger screen, much better graphics capability, great for watching divx, mp3s, photos etc

    oh, and CFW

    ds vs psp chinatown wars

    and you can get a 2nd hand one on hukd for £50-£60

    I've got both the PSP and the DS. The DS gets almost daily use whilst the PSP generally sits on the shelf attracting dust. I'm not suggesting it's a bad console, far from it, the options for multimedia and games are excellent with the CFW installed. The problem is it's portability and the quality of the games.

    The DS is simply a fantastic games console, with numerous highly addictive, highly replayable games that can be picked and put down in as short or long a period as you're playing. I can also take it out and about with me and not be constantly worried about keeping it protected due to the build quality and clamshell design.

    Just for the record I own both a PS2 and a PS3 so I'm definitely not biased against Sony products. :thumbsup:
