So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

PSP Vs. DS: The GR Portable Prizefight!

Posted on Saturday, March 12 @ 01:12:12 Eastern by Ben_Silverman
 

Round 6: PRICE - FIGHT!

We started easy, so we figured we'd end that way, too. The DS retails for $150; the PSP goes for $250. DS software tends to start out at the affordable $30 price point, while PSP games fluctuate between $40 and $50 (movies on UMD run about $20, same as a DVD). If you have a light wallet, you know where to go.

However, don't let the seemingly exorbitant cost of the PSP freak you out; you're getting just about the fanciest gadget on the market for less than the cost of a standard Ipod. It's not actually the most expensive thing in the world...it's just the most expensive handheld in the world. Point, Nintendo.

Behold the final tally!

PSP: 5

DS: 3

The Verdict

So there you have it: the PSP defeated the DS by a score of 5 to 3. We're not sure what that means since our scoring system is so rickety to begin with, but we stand by our belief that we practice good science. You should see all the cloned zombies around here.

Look, we'd be flat-out lying if we said the PSP was just another handheld that should compete well with the DS. It's truly in another league, and though it isn't without its flaws, it's just about the most exciting product to hit the scene since the current console conflict began in 2001. The screen alone is an amazing piece of tech. Whether or not hardcore and casual gamers agree is another matter entirely, but since when did we care what you think. After all, you're the same people who made Survivor the number 7 selling PC game for a few weeks straight. Shame on you.

Nintendo finally has a reason to look over its shoulder, and while it's still in the driver's seat thanks to a massive handheld install base and rabid fan dedication, Sony is the console market leader for a good reason. The sparks are about to fly, so choose a side, play some games on the toilet, and above all else, duck and cover.

 

>> I want a rematch!
