    Probably the PSP here in Britain. Nintendo hasn't managed to get a great foothold over here where as most of the country's gamers have a PSX or PS2. If Nintendo can get some decent third party support, the ones that produce sports and racing games, or even war games (eurgh) that should get them some interest here. I doubt it though, it'll probably end up being like the GBA - mostly ports and crappy movie tie-ins with the occasional gem hidden umongst them.

    Both. Add that as an option and I'll vote. Otherwise, this is reminiscent of a shoolboy argument about SNES is better than megadrive! (yawn)

    I think the two are aimed at sufficiently different markets and both will be successful I reckon :)

    We all know the SNES was better!!! Another thing, i know people aged 20+ who own GBA's, just to prove its not just aimed at kids.

    If you want a ford buy a DS. If you want a Porche buy PSP. End of story.

    i do think that both will do pretty well.
    although the whole handheld market is made up from alot more kids than adults, therefore with the back catalogue of GBA games and the fact that the old GBA owners will take this as a logical upgrade to keep using there accessories/games etc i feel the DS has the edge over the PSP.
    but saying that though, i for one would rather have a PSP in my hands.
    so, in my mind the PSP will do well (i hope so anyways) but the DS will more than likely be the favourite overall.

    I am not so sure, I have a feeling the PSP will out-sell the DS from day 1, assuming Sony don't screw up the pricing..

    I think the PSP will sell better here and in the States in the long run. However Ninty have already shifted millions of DS apparently so they have alot of work to do catching up.

    Sony have to make sure they get out quality and quantity in terms of software for the PSP, if they can get out a fraction of the PS2 back catalogue they will be on a winner.

    There are rumours of build quality issues with the PSP which are a bit worrying, I wonder if they will struggle to turn out enough stock for the US launch. They had an horrendous Christmas with the PS2 slim shortgages so they need to get this right.

    This actually was a bit worrying for me, but let me tell you that (on my unit at least) there were no problems at all. I would go so far as to say that it is far better built and put together than my DS - which has got dust under the screen, and creaky hinges.
