    Okay I know what's better but my little step brother is going to get a psp or a ds. He's 11 and totally technology-illiterate cos he's spent his whole life on a farm.
    Anyway he's a totally mellow gamer, like the only game he really likes is wipe out pure, and he doesn't race, he just drives around backwards and forwards for ages. And every time he comes to stay that's all he wants to do. He loves video games, he just really sucks at them.
    His parents finally agreed to buy him a second hand psp, but then one of his school friends told him that a ds is the business, and he rang and asked my opinion and I dunno, honestly, for this kid - maybe a ds would be better, cos a psp is a bit of work if you want to really use it and I don't know if he's got it in him. He is on internet, but it is (no kidding) 14kbs. That's still enough to join psp-hacks and start learning though.
    Anyway I don't know f**k all about a ds and I'm not about to start trawling through fanboy ds sites trying to find out at this stage in my life so basically I'm asking here. What'd be better for him?
    (And can you play musics on a ds? He wanted to know that too.)

    For a younger kid, a DS would be better.

    You just have to distinguish if he's a hardcore gamer or a casual gamer. PSP is more toward the hard core gamers and the DS is more a casual gamer. Not saying that the DS isn't meant for hardcore gamers as well but it is a good system to have. I bought my GF a DS and ask if she wanted a PSP, none of the games appeal to her as much as the DS does. The main question is, does he like more games on the PSP rather than the DS?

    mugendc4 is right.

    I would recommend a DS for him, just because there are just so many games.
    but get a PSP when you have enough money.

    DS for funner games.

    PSP for not-that-much-but-still-better-than DS games.

    I recommend ds if he wants to play we friends you know games like mario kart and stuff always fun for the kids. PSP if he's decides to just play by himself. You do realize with the purchase of a psp he can't play too many games if you're ok with him playing teen rated games which most of them are from my perspective.

    I reccomend psp. My little sis has a fat psp with CFW and she enjoys playing the iso's I've given her as well as classic snes and gameboy games. Sure she has a ds too but i see her with her psp alot more often. Maybe you should have him send it to you, you could mod it, send it back, have him call you when he gets it and you can explain everything to him. my sister at least knows now how to get roms herself off the net and where they're susposed to go and she's 11

    And btw we're on a farm with a 45 kbps dialup connection lol. But I've grown up playing around with consoles and computers all my life :P
