I know they are out in US and Japan and possibly other places too. But not here, and as I got one shipped to me via eBay, I just wondered if anyone else had one. Anyways, they're great. I have Super Mario 64 DS and Mr. Driller Drill Spirits.

Thats a Nintendo DS.

Touch screen technology, built in microphone, tilt sensor, built in wireless adapter, gba and ds slots, ds to gba functionality (meaning you might be able to put a GBA game in as well as a DS one and do something extra on the DS game.)

Not just the graphics, the whole PSP is awsome, The ability to use it as an mp3 player, Movie player, Games console and Sony have been talking about a patch which allows an email browser, web browser and much more.

Edit :

In reply to mudda, It's not out in the US till march, but its available from Japan and is region free. The games are on little disk things called UMDs, they hold 1.8gig compared to the DS catridge which holds 1gig.

Another Edit :

Pulled out some images for you.

And the fact the battery life is so shit you won't be able to watch a movie in one go, be able to listen to only a few songs and have to keep saving your games to stop the battery going flat on you halfway through a level.

DS is where it's at, with it's better games and better battery life. I have a DVD player and CD player anyway, and I'll choose game quality over graphics anyfday.

PSP > DS

Though more then likely when i get enough money and if it has any games that interest me i might get DS. But then again there is still plenty of Advanced games that i am interested in getting. But i think PSP is a must buy, and i am curious as to how exactly the metal gear game will work. Inshort i believe Gameboy may get overthrown for once in it's existence.

Firstly, to the kids who said about the battery life. Im guessing you have a DS and are now regretting forking out your cash on it because you released the PSP is so much better. Anyway, Apparently the japs get 4 hours or so from a movie and 8 hours from games. Anyone who plays 8 hours non-stop without being in a place to charge the PSP should seriously see a doctor. And noone in the right mind would walk along the street watching a movie. Get an in-car charger if you wanna play/watch in the car.
