PSP or DS Lite ??

Found 28th Sep 2008
I am trying to decide which to get my kids for Christmas. They are 4 and 7 years old. I want something portable so they can take it out the house.

I don't know anything about either systems.

Any advice?

Boys/girls?

If they are that age id get them the ds lite as its family fun and friendly games

The psp is more for like 12+

i think the ds is much better than the psp!

the psp has better games but very few of them - whereas ds has innovative games

ive also got a 4 and 7 yr old but as they r girls they both have ds's they do enjoy playing their dads psp but have trouble getting to grips with some of it where as a lot of the ds is self explanotory, although on flip side of tht psp is more a boys toy and thts not me being sexist im female and although i do like the psp it has obviously more the range of footie games etc where the ds has a lot of more fun girly games lol

for kids that ages the ds is much better as it has alot more character games and with the touch screen it makes it more fun for them. Like you said they dont relise many new games on the psp!

my nephew is 5 and loves is psp .. his brothr is 4 and prefers the ds. i think its down to prefernce really why dont u do one of each and then they can share>

then defo ds lite no doubt about it.
Psps games are too older-kids style
ds lite is for fun for all

yep easily DS

i like my psp as i play baseball - football - racing and shooting games on it - (and loco roco ) which apart from the last are all male 12+ games

Whereas the ds i enjoy playing phoenix wright ace attorney + advance wars + brain training + trauma center - which are all for people about 16+

On preference for children id go for the ds as its a kid friendly console but the psp as i said is for mature gamers

The thing about the ds thougt is there is so much rubbish released every day on it that you cant say its a good console as imo there are/were only 4 good games released on it
Mario kart
advance wars
phoenix wright
brain training

I have a psp and the wife has a ds lite. we both play the ds lite more.

my 8 year old brother loves his ds, pokemon games and things, then again i love my ds, my older brother has a psp but he's 17 and i always catch him player on our brothers ds

DS Lite ftw!

My kids love their DS too !! :thumbsup:

DS lite seems to be winning the war at the moment.....in fact nintendo seems to have got the market by the balls......you can now buy an xbox 360 for the same price as a DS lite :w00t: gives you an indication of the way to go

just like the ps3 / 360 argument imho

ds is better for games

psp better for all round features (video / photos / internet etc)

like many have said, its a preference i suppose. Each have their qualities... but it is true that there are more games available on the DS for you particular age range OP. And probs some interesting (mb cheaper) bundles available for the DS as its coming up to xmas. Good luck with your quest anyway.

PSP no comparison, I no have got 4 kids and PSP's DS light's PS2's and Xbox 360's coming out of my ears:x
