Life is about choosing XD. It's no fun if the only way you can go is straight forward.

I have an original DS, red. I was thinking about getting a DS Lite. I didn't like how, when you put in a GBA game, the game sticks halfway out! I still like the orignal DS.

I have a white PSP. I don't really play it much. I have a few movies. Also, I have a few SD cards with music on them. So, it works out for music, movies, and games.

I think that I would pick the PSP. But the DS comes really close.

PSP = PlayStation Portable.

Now read that, it's just a portable or handheld PS2, Don't expect hardly any innovation besides it's portability.

Sure as everyone can see the video capacities of a DS is equivalent to the PSP for exemple ...

or not.

I had both a Nintendo DS and Sony PSP for awhile. I got kinda bored with the Nintendo DS after awhile though... I don't know, just wasn't my style of system I guess...

The PSP is nice because it allows me to have two things that I love with me at all times: Music and Games. Although I mostly use my PSP for music when I'm on the go walking around town, it's nice to have a good game to play while waiting in line at conventions or during gaps between my classes at school. My current obsession with the PSP has been playing Guilty Gear though. LOVE THAT GAME!

Man, hard decision indeed. I've got both but play my PSP more often. I think it's because of the better homebrew scene (as far as emulators go, at least).

I'd say to just look at what games from both systems you'd want to play most and decide from there.

I have no loyalties to platforms - mine kinda lie in franchises. When a game comes out, I usually think "oh boy, now I need to get my hands on that system".

I'm enjoying the PSP at the moment, and with custom firmware, the neat additional things one can do is a very satisfying experience. I find that when I'm not in the mood to read a book, I curl up on the couch to play it for hours at a time.
However, if you commute, I find the DS to be more appropriate to fill in the time. If price is an issue, I would consider the DS since the cost of the system is relatively cheaper. Games for both platforms tend to be about the same in terms of pricing.

For every 40 DS games I would find fun, there is only 1 PSP game at even looks somewhat fun. Eh, still don't feel like getting one.

Well, I own a PSP and have a 4GB stick to go with it. Haven't regretted my purchase even once, since it was actually cheaper than what a DS+R4/M3+1GB microSD combination would have cost here.

With custom firmware, the PSP is basically a portable entertainment center. I use it mainly to play games, read manga, watch anime and browse internet from WiFi hotspots, in this order. I own a decent amount of PSP games, I have also converted some of my old PS1 games for my PSP (PS1 emulation can be also done without custom firmware, unlike someone else said in this thread), and I also spend time with emulators, mainly SNES and GBA. I use PSPComic to read manga with PSP. Watching anime with PSP is also very enjoyable, and since it uses H.264+AAC in MP4 as the default format for videos, the episodes don't take much space from the stick either (one episode is usually around 40-70MB converted) and it looks very good too. You can even turn softsubs into hardsubs pretty easily when converting.

So I'd say that PSP is a great purchase, if you're into homebrew, since you can do so much with it. And there are lots of great PSP games out nowadays too.

Of course, DS has some great games too, and it's a shame that I won't be able to play some of them, but never have felt that I made the wrong decision when I bought my PSP. Maybe I'll get a DS someday to go with my PSP, but for now, my PSP is plenty enough for me.

DS all the way!! Fun games, awesome graphics, innovative and most important.. LONG battery life!!! (I played DQMJ for 6 hours straight without recharging batter) Get a R4 and you're set life on DS. With tales of innocence, DQ9 & KH coming, what more can you ask for hehe

A couple more neat stuffs are the homebrews. NDS calculator that can even plot graphs, dictionary(chinese,jap,kor,eng etc), NES games, movies etc...

I think it all depends on what games you like. I've owned both handhelds and ended selling my DS because I didn't like alot of the games. The PSP's graphics are far superior to the DS' as well. Alot of people tend to say that the DS' game library is way more fun, but I think otherwise. I only liked the Castlevania series and some of the first party Nintendo games. As for my PSP, I ended up getting a ton of games that I love. Alot of PS RPGs were ported so I ended up getting Valkyrie Profile, Tales of Eternia(US Tales of Destiny 2), Breath of Fire 3, and Final Fantasy Tactics. And as for non ported games, I got MGS PO, MGA, Lumines, Rengoku, Loco Roco, GTA LCS, and Blade Dancer. And the rest are Initial D Street Stage(ported arcade game), Parappa the Rapper, The Legend of Heroes games, Tekken, and Hot Shots Golf.

And for those who said the Ds are getting the Final Fantasy games, the PSP has FF, FFII, and FF Tactics. And they're getting Dissidia Final Fantasy, and Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core.

And MAYBE if we're lucky enough, we might get Suikoden I&II and Star Ocean.

But if you're impatient you could always just mod your PSP and get those yourself. =P

And as for Nintendo's "innovation". Does anyone ever recall something called the Power Glove? And remember the DS isn't the first hardware to apply a touch screen with a game, nor was it the first hardware to apply two screens with a game. It was the first to apply the touch screen and another non touch screen to a game. Very innovative. The Wii... well the Power Glove comment above says it all. Nintendo has been trying new things for a while, and have failed time and time again, but only recently did the "something new" actually succeed. I for one think it's all a fad. I seriously doubt the new generation is going to be super motion activated mega ultra high speed infrared bluetooth high octane controllers.

If nintendo goes far enough with this so called "innovation" then we might as well carry a real sword and shield, and hit something with it. =P

And no, I'm not a Nintendo hater, nor a Sony fanboy.(I was raised on the nes, playing FF and Ninja Turtles) I just think the hype the DS and Wii get is laughable.
