    PSP or Nitendo DS?

    For travelling, which one is best, if you have one, review out of 10. I am leaning towards the PSP, purely on the number of games.

    Planning on buying the DS once I have the cash. I wouldn't go just on number of games, you should have a look and se which has the most games you like the look of imo.

    Have a Nintendo DS myself. The best thing about it is it's convenience and it's library of fun, playable games. If you already have a PS2 or a PS3, I don't see the point of getting a PSP as the games are the same and the experience is replicated only at a portable level. The DS is an entirely different experience and the games are a lot of fun too.

    Depends how in depth you're going to get. If you get a DS I STRONGLY suggest you get an R4 as well, so you can download any DS game you want and play them, without having to pay best part of 100 bucks for a freakin' portable game. A few emulators (for only older Nintendo consoles ie. NES and SNES) are around as well which you use through the R4, which opens your library immensely.

    PSP is absolutely spectacular if you're willing to risk it for homebrew. Haven't done it myself (don't own one) but if you homebrew it you can download whatever games you want for it (they're large, though) and there's any number of emulators for it. NES, SNES, Genesis, PSX. Massive open.

    I'd get a DS if you're going to just buy and play games.

    I have both, play the PSP alot more. Though it all depends on what type of games you like. DS has alot of wierd RPGs while the PSP has alot of better graphic games.

    I plan on buying a few more DS games, but as of right now, much prefer my PSP.

    I have a DS Linker and it's has exponentially raised the value of the DS. Have tooled around with emulators too, they're very good on the DS.

    But yeah, the emulation scene for PSP is huge, mainly because I think th hardware is gruntier.

    I think overall the DS is a better choice.

    I have a homebrewed PSP, but none of the games on it truly excite me much, whereas I like the DS games.

    DS has Phoenix Wright on it, that pretty much ends this discussion.

    Specifically for travelling as you have asked, I'd say a PSP because out of the box it can do more multimedia things (movies and the like afaik, not an expert) than the DS.

    DS... sooo much fun!
    Its a different experience, aren't you tired basically the same gaming layouts as usual, PSP is just a mini playstation. Get a DS try something new.

    For those who never got my answer, thanks for your help I got the Nintendo DS, it was a genius idea. I bought it when travelling and it was definitely worth it. It is extremely worthwile. Don't know much about the PSP, and at this point don't care either.

    Get one of these babies too;

    DS LINKER

    They're cheap (around AUD$60) and you can do all sorts of cool emulation on it.
