Well, a few days ago I had a go on a PSP, and even though I've wanted one from the start, it just reassured me. So, I'm curious what everyone else is getting/already has?
Personally, the DS wasn't very well designed (aesthetically or ergonomically). Nothing about it interests me as much as the PSP, as well as the fact that Nintendo don't offer the Final Fantasy titles (as far as I'm aware). I do, however, feel I'm missing out on Pokemon..... :(

I feel personally the DS is superior to the PSP. Nintendo have been dirtying their hands in the handheld market for years and years; they know what it takes and there is no doubt that they have a stranglehold on the market.
Sony are taking a brave step by even trying to challenge them.
However I think that firstly the PSP is too expensive (about £199 to the DS's £99) and that also the design is not as good as the DS. The dual screen on the DS sounds gimmicky but it works an absolute treat. Overall I believe the DS has a better lineup of games; Nintendo's quality in this market is proven, and so it follows that more companies will be willing to develop for the DS.
Still, it'll be interesting to see how things pan out.
Edit: Just had a quick look on Amazon (UK version) and was interested to see that the DS has 181 customer reviews and and an average score of 4.5 out of 5.

I don't want either. I cart around enough crap already, I'm not stuffing one of those things in my pocket :). Seriously though, I'm not much for handheld gaming. After the Gameboy went color it lost its appeal and I gave my Gameboy Pocket to my nephew. Never played a handheld game since. Don't really have a reason other then that I just don't want 'em. Playstation's enough for me (and Super Nintendo of course!).

I have a DS and it absolutly rocks. I do wish they'd hurry up and come out with an RPG for it before I lose interest. There's a Kirby game comin out for it! :D I love Kirby! :D But yeah, the PSP is gonna need alot of help if it wants to beat the DS in quality, in my opinion. ;)

I will live happily with my ps2 and xbox, though there are certain games that you can't get on neither one of those systems, but you can on ds or psp.....But ps2 and xbox have way better games, not to mention better graphics! :)
