Right on the heels of the UMD dump, someone's already managed to boot a homebrew demo on a 1.0 Japanese PSP. So it's now possible to run games from a memory card... but considering that an UMD is around 1.7 gigs and a 2 gig memory stick cost more than a PSP itself... it doesn't seem worth it to me.

Of course I already have a DS and I'm happy with it... especially since I can just now use my old GBA flash cart to run code/roms with the custom bios.

Choosing PSP or DS comes down to your financial situation.

To me PSP seems to be the cooler system with more games and more power (I imagine emulators will run great on it)... it's easy to convert divx files to play on and the screen is really a marvel to look at... but man is that sucker expensive. We're talking half a grand after you buy a decent size memory stick, a spare battery, and some games.

Then you have DS which is only 150 and doesn't need memory sticks or spare batteries. DS has to potential to have some really incredible titles that take advantage of the touch screen... but so far no one has really come close to that except Wario Ware Inc. Yoshi Touch and Go just plain turned out crappy... although Nintendogs has some really good buzz around it (perfect score from Famitsu). My one worry is that Nintendo is going to abandon DS for the true Gameboy successor... especially with the PSP giving them some strong competition. Honestly since I got my DS in Decemeber I use it mostly to play GBA games.

The fact some people still use Famitsū as a reference is behind me.
