I was looking at the Nintendo DS and the games available in my local stores recently - it hit me that most of the games were VERY basic, they were all standard puzzle/racing games, nothing exciting bar the gimmick of the touch screen to control it. I didnt see Advance Wars for it, else gimmick or not I'd have walked out with the DS ;)

Now, I like little gimmicks as much as anyone else but the quality of the games I was looking at was abysmal. Most were simple puzzle-style games or bust-a-move like games. I don't buy into 3d shooters on a handheld - it's just not usually much good.

I was also informed that the Nintendo DS didn't handle racing games (like NFSU2) very well, anyone have first hand experiance?

In the end, I decided against it, walked out with an armful of lower-tier yet very intresting PC games (Neuro Hunter, Yu-Gi-Oh online, Republic: The Revolution)

By the way, I'm a huge fan of card combat based games like Yu-Gi-Oh so online version is a godsend for me, sad but true :thumbsup:

theres that port of Mario 64?

I've sampled a DS for a minute or two but that was about it, I've never seen a psp though. I think for stuff to do, the PSP might have more, but I'd rather own a lap top for on the go gaming lol. I'd still prefer getting a ps3 or computer upgrades though to a psp.

argh... both PSP AND the DS are wastes of money, wait for consoles! Or wait for prices to drop.
Though yeah, I've seen the DS's new Advance Wars game, and it is pretty good actually... and metroid looks like it could be pretty good...
