I was going to get round to getting a PSP, but I always end up getting more DS games.

Nintendo will always top the handhelds.

Personally I've got nothing against PSP, but the DS is so much more appealing as my handheld gaming is somewhat casual.

I don't really wanna sit and play a lengthy adventure game or something on such a small screen. The DS works so well because of its smaller applications that are just great FUN :D
