we have the one we won from the christmas party two years ago. my son loves it. i am not sure of the current games. i saw a psp the other day and think it has a better picture. i don't think you can go wrong with either one.
I have one, and since it plays GBA games as well, I sold my Game Boy Advance a couple of weeks ago. Mario Kart DS is lots of fun, don't really have any other games except Advance Wars DS which is ok, but not what I expected.
I also just sold my PSP, that was to help justify the Xbox 360 I have been playing constantly! (Dang Oblivion!!)
I like the DS...I am probably gonna get Brain Age soon to indulge my new found addiction for Sudoku...argh!
Wait until 6/11 and get a DS Lite. The DS Lite will be smaller with much brighter screens.
DS Lite on the left, original DS on the right.
I love my original DS. I play it more than my Cube and PS2 combined. There is a great catalog of games out right now and over 100 new games between now and the end of the year. Online gameplay is fun and easy to set-up
The PSP has a larger and higher resolution screen but lacks a large catalog of great games.
