charlitos saidyou'll be better off with a DS seriously. Theres nothing innovative enough about this PSP that makes it more appealing than a smartphone.
-but the (current) DS is mostly for casual gamers with titles like "Nintendogs-"
"Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-land Mayhem!-" "Minion Mayhem-" with a few exceptions----> "New Super Mario Bros."
So to me the DS is more like a smart phone than a PSP- Check out http://www.toucharcade.com/ and see for yourself- How many games like "Dante" and "God of War" have you come across on a smart phone?
*Yes I know the newer iphones can run games like Dead Space- iPhone -but how many developers do you think will develop games that complex when you can get rich off games like "Angry Birds"
**I'm not saying any system "sucks or rocks"**
3DS is more powerful than PSP not only at generating more pixels per second but as a full dedicated gaming system.
Anyone who spends time playing games on a portable console shouldnt call himself a "serious gamer".
Nintendo has always sold way more portable consoles than Sony. Sony thought that the same strategy they followed with their PlayStation Classic and PlayStation 2 could be easily adopted for a portable console...they failed big time.
So basically u are telling me Sony's PSP future is barely hanging in the hands of third party developers that could easily switch to any other platform as portable consoles keep losing market share to smartphones(PSP just keep selling less and less every single quarter). At least Nintendo is giving u more dedicated gaming hardware than a smartphone can(DS sells like frigging pancakes).
I'm sure ull have fun with ur PSP but u just won't probably find many people to share that fun with.
