    im trying to decide what handheld to buy psp or ds and would like to know which is better.......i know the psp can play movies, but what can the ds do that the psp cant......and what new technology can you do with the two such as mods and tv hookup and chatting programs without gaming?

    m3 a brand name....aka is a adapter to play pirate ds games, that mean you can buy m3 adapter with passcard to play gba game or ds simply to play ds game for free....it is illegal to download roms,

    i love both ds and psp, i have both
    defend what game u like to play, psp have better graphic, ds game more games, but suck game, just download what u like to play

    most of the ds game only 32 mb, barely 120 mb, so ds has bad graphic
    psp have at least 300 mb, up to 1.8gb of game...make the graphic similar to ps2 games
    i will buy both!

    i would/did get the ds. also, it can play movies too. in comparison, it seems your talking about homebrew. and that last part of the first question kinda doesn't make sense.

    anyways, the ds has: a great pda program thing that utilizes the touch screen(much like a real pda)-[DSOrganize]; a media player program that can read .txt files, play movies(has to be converted, but so does the psp}/music files(mp3, wav, mid, aac, ogg supported i believe), and launch other homebrew with support that stops bad programs from launching at all -[MoonShell]; an excellent aim program -[D-SAIM](also known as DS AIM and DSAIM, but its all 'the same', lol); an FTP(file transfer protocol) client that sends/recieves files stored on the memory device in the ds wirelessly-[DSFTP]; *other homebrew* (i haven't tested much else but the ones listed, THEY PWNZ!); a GREAT game library. ds games are 9/10 of the top selling games for japan last month and i think 4/10 for the us (which is still very good considering the american market and blahblahblaster). get the ds, and don't look back... or to the side...

    m3 is a company that makes flash carts, passmes, and a slot-1 device. these are all products used to operate homebrew/backups on the ds. some also work on the gba. products made by m3 usually have the company name in them, such as the m3 lite perfect or the m3 ds simply.

    edit: roms are not illegal if you have the original cartridge. as long as you only have one copy of the rom and do not distribute it or call it your own creation. but this area is still kinda gray...

    More Customisable menu
    Loads of features, not only to do with games, like different sounds, game boots, etc)
    Better Homebrew - has everything from calculators to calanders, even has a dancing game.
    Better emulator, has a full speed snes emulator, full speed sega genises emulator, full speed PS1 Emulator, Nintendo 64 emulator, full speed gba emulator, and much more)
    Can overclock the system for faster preformance
    Can already play MP3
    Can already play MP4
    Can already view pictures
    Can already browse the web

    Cons:
    only 3 hours battery life when playing games
    Has to go to trouble of downgrading to 1.5 and then upgrading to 3.03 OE
    Can destroy your psp if you flash the psp and do something wrong
    Have to buy big memory stick 2gb recommended
    Only like 5 games fit on 2 gb

    Nintendo DS
    Pro:
    Funner
    Touch screen availabilty
    More games to fit on memory stick
    Can watch movies
    CAN listen to music
    Can use homebrew

    Cons:
    Have to spend a little more on the cards to let it play homebrew

    I would go with the psp.
    Why you ask?

    psp can play videos and music full 3d games
    Ds can play videos and music and weak 3d games

    To play music etc on psp drag and drop
    To play on ds convert run the porgram for what ever card you have then drag drop

    ds more work

    Ds loads fast
    Psp slower but is really worth the wait

    Homebrew etc
    psp downgrade then upgrade play great stuff like ps1,sega and gba etc
    ds convert then play great stuff like nes,snes etc but the psp can do all that

    ds screen could break off or become lose if your not carefull

    wifi both consle has these

    internet psp most times comes with it if not update free
    psp web is really good trust me

    ds your got to go buy the thing
    ds can do photo chat but you can get msn for it

    psp rocks but ds mario kart 64 ds is a blast

    I hate threads like this ¬_¬
    Just get both a PSP and DS and your sorted, get the benefits from both worlds.

    You'd have to very very stupid to be able to accidentally break the screen off

    I hate it, messes up tons of pages, quite slow, always running out of memory (usually just after all the websites adverts have loaded) Not saying the crappy Opera browser for the DS is any better though, well it dosn't give me memory messages every other webpage.

    Anyhows, back to FFVII on my PSP.
