The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...
We start with an easy call because it's easy, and we like easy. Both systems are roughly the same size - neither fits comfortably in your pocket, but both will definitely fit in the front portion of your backpack. The DS is metallic, utilitarian and edgier, featuring two small but effective screens and weighing a bit less than the PSP. Sony's device is smoother, darker and more rounded, featuring one giant, gorgeous LCD display, and is longer and leaner than the DS.
Which one is hotter? No contest - the PSP, far and away the more attractive system. Between that giant screen and its mature, sleek design, the system simply feels like the future. If you don't believe us, take a gander at these pictures:

Imagine yourself at a bar and you have to take one of these home with you. If you're going for a trophy night, you make a pass at the PSP and hope for the best. If you've had too much vodka, you grab the DS because, well, it's the last one left in the bar.
Hmmm...maybe we took that analogy too far. Please do not attempt to make love to either system (or at least USE PROTECTION).
