So I have landed myself a job, finally. As a treat to myself I’m thinking of buying one of these when my money is given to me. (YAY MONEY).

Anyway, im undecided, i’ve heard good things about all 3.

Give me your opinions on which is better and why.

Ultimately I want a Wii, but I already have a console in my room which is alright for now, and either a DS or PSP would be portable.

However I really want guitar hero 3 and it’s not available for my poor old PS2.

I would save for a wii, even though I never play mine. I pretty much just play 360 nowadays, wii needs less party games.

I would say Wii, if only for Super Smash Bros., No More Heroes, and a few other great games. But with those still difficult to find (I found mine completely with dumb luck), the DS would be your next best bet; it’s better than the PSP in a lot of ways, and cheaper to boot.

Whichever way you go, these are a few good games I’d look for:

Wii: Super Smash Bros., No More Heroes, Mario Kart

DS: Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Hotel Dusk: Room 215, The World Ends with You, Dementium: The Ward

PSP: Metal Gear Acid series, Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles (I think that’s the name), Final Fantasy Tactics

EDIT: Guitar Hero 3 is on the PS2. The graphics suck compared to the next gen versions, but it’s there.

I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

I think the DS is best value out of the three. You can play games on it anywhere, and it’s much more affordable.

Plus since it’s been out so long, there are dozens of great titles to choose from. The Wii probably has half a dozen triple A titles right now.

I had a PSP and after not using it for over a year sold it.

The only plus I’d have to having a PSP is being able to aquire free games from someone I know.

I wasn’t goin to consider a PSP at all, but someone else put up a good arguement for it.

I want a wii eventually, but I can wait an extra month or so.

I think a PSP plus a (crap) game is around £130

A DS bundle (3 games) is around £120, which is quite good I guess.

The Wii + Wii sports is £179.99 + £60 for guitar hero 3 + £70 for Wii Fit

I agree here, to a point. The DS has had a lot of time to explore it’s high, and unique, potential, while the Wii has only a few games that really exploit it. For example, I loved the immersive experience (yet poorly executed plot) of Dementium: The Ward, which was surprising to see from a portable game – there were times that I was genuinely terrified.

But the Wii is still a tough console to find, so I’d suggest buying one if you can find one. At the very least, it still sells for more than it’s retail price on Ebay.

Yeah…in terms of power, the Xbox is amazing. Plus, the Xbox is the best source of Western video games; Wii, PS3, and DS rely mostly on Japanese games.

Is it? I swear I see them all the time when I’m in Game. + the other game places usually have them new or second hand. The only wii thing I’ve found to be unavailable in most places is Wii Fit.

It depends largely on your area. I still rarely see them, and they disappear quickly when I do.

I love my DS but I would have to say WII is more fun.

Considering 2 of the options were personal and portable, I am guessing you want it for yourself not to share with friends though… So in that case, I would go with DS.

I think the DS is an incredible buy, though a lot of that is because of how easy it is to pirate games, as well as how convenient that makes it. Instead of carrying around a bunch of tiny cartridges, I’ve got every game for the system I want in the one cartridge that’s plugged in.

It’s hard to compare a handheld with a console though.

For the consoles my pick order would probably be:

PS3 (if you’ve got an HD TV, because it looks goddamn AMAZING and it’s nice to have a Blu-ray player for “free”Log in to see images!

XBox 360 (great games, amazing online interface and content)

Wii (innovative games and potential, but just doesn’t deliver for some genres)

PS3 without HD TV (lots of money for less value than the 360, and most of it’s good games exist on both)

Edit: So I just noticed the topic says PSP and not PS3, which I guess makes more sense price-wise. Don’t get a PSP.
