DSi compared to the PSP

Video games are very popular today, especially the hand held systems. When it comes to hand held gaming there are two very popular systems, the DSi and the PSP. They’re both very good systems. The DSi and the PSP are very similar gaming systems but they have some differences.

The things that you can do with the DSi and the PSP are very similar. The DSi and the PSP both have very good video games. You can also game share, which means you can share games with your friends, with both of the systems. Also you can listen to music if you have a SD card for the DSi or a memory stick for the PSP. They both can go online and go to their shops where you can by more video games at the DSi shop or the PSP shop. Also, these systems can go online with Wi-Fi connection and surf the web. They both work great. Last, but not least, you can also update the systems every few months.

On the other hand, the DSi and the PSP also have some differences. The DSi can take pictures with its built in camera, but with the PSP you can only view pictures. The DSi games are mostly E for everyone but the PSP games are mostly T for teen and M for mature adults. With the DSi you can record your voice for up to ten seconds but with the PSP you can not. Also, the PSP can watch movies but the DSi does not allow this feature. The DSi has more action games, but the PSP has more shooter games.

It is hard to decide between a DSi and a PSP because they have a lot of similar things, but some things are different. If you are more interested in E games and characters like Mario and Nintendo characters then the DSi is right for you; but, if you don’t like E games and like movies the PSP is right for you. The decision between the two systems should be based on what you feel is most important.

Thanks for beginning my education w/ hand held games. I had no idea where to start, August. Now I at least know a little of the vocabulary and the key differences. Thanks for writing this summary. It was very helpful to me--Kathy Cerny

My 2 oldest sons have the systems, the oldest having the DSi and the younger having the PSP. As a parent I prefer the DSi for the games, but there is the ability of the psp to play movies, which in a vehicle and a long trip is very useful. However I do prefer the DSi to the PSP, and I must say the picture quality of the pictures on the DSi are quite amazing!! I have always been a fan of Nintendo for the reason that they have never stopped catering to the younger group and make games that are not so violent. Very Kid friendly

Great job, "Kid #1"! I enjoyed reading your comparison/contrast and would definitely recommend it to others looking to purchase a hand-held system!
