Interesting, if you cannot be arsed reading then they say the PSP is a
better system overall, but the DS is a better portable system. Confused
lol? :)

I would take the whole review with a pinch of salt, it really will come down
to the games. If you like Nintendo games, which are often childish but
ALWAYS a lot of fun, then the DS is for you. Also the input method of the
stylus, when used correctly, is amazing.

If you want a high spec, portable PS2, then get the PSP - you wont see much
innovation software wise, but man it packs one powerful punch. Both are
obviously very good systems.

If you can afford them, get two of each :)  Need to make sure you can take
advantage of the multiplayer!!

I like Nintendo games but I don't want to be tied down with N64 technology.
I can play SuperMario 64 on my PC for free.

Mario 64 is a bit dated, but the new DS version has lots of cool extras,
including a shedload of mini games which are fun. The N64 emulators are a
bit iffy sometimes, not very reliable.

Im planning on getting the DS now seeing how gaming on portables can be just
as fun as consoles. I have the psp now, and wipeout pure is just one of the
best games out right now imo. But I like the ds for its uniqueness with the
touchpad and all. So yeah, get both.

There's an extra Star (8 vs the 64's 7) in each level to get, plus new
levels (supposedly). And puzzles that can only be solved by the use of
each of the 4 chearacters

There's much more to it than just a straight copy of Mario 64


Plus there's the whole legality of playing with emulators, but I doubt
that bothers you in any way.
