That is a very untrue statement. I've had my DS since Christmas, and i dont have any scratches at all, and i used it a lot when i first got it. And also what i would like to know is how would you know if the PSP isn't easy to scratch??? What were you doing trying to scratch a PSP that they had on display for people to check out...not very considerate. I also think that the DS looks way better anyways than the PSP because on the PSP like almost all of it is screen! The DS also flips open and closes and that protects the screens even more.
