Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition and the new Grand Theft Auto title, which will be set in Liberty City, are being developed by Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with Rockstar San Diego and Rockstar North, respectively. Both titles are expected to be available near the launch of the PSP handheld system in North America and Europe.

i can tell you...No, it is lighter has a wider screen, but it looks a squeeze, when Edge magaine gave the specs I thought"new rousers???" well i thought about this and other notable subjects for a great length of time. But if current sales and the absolutely staggering number of developers and BIG name software corps supporting the DS, I think I'll go with the DS over the PSP, and look I've been playing videogames since 1978, I have played and owned nearly every system of the past 27-8 years. So believe me when i say I have nothing against Sony or the PSP ( I am a PS2 owner, and a huge GTA fan), however there is the point that Japanese interest in the psp has been muted at best, that when you consider that the electronics arm of Sony (one of the largest parts of the company) reported in December )$ that it saw an 83% drop in profits, that and the utter failure that was the PSX al in one, then you have to wonder. The battery life on the PSP ranges from 2-6 hours depending on the game (FACTS FROM SONY), you can purchase a second if you wish. Movie playback will be 4 hours maximum at med illumination. Does all this seem rushed?? That and the news on tuesday that Sony will lose a Whopping £140 per unit in japan, WHAT? yes, I know, I thought"BULLSHIT" when I read this, but I checked and checked, and yes its true. So what is Sony's game? I hope the PSP sells well, I think the increased competion can only mean big things for all us gamers. If you take a look at the japanese market the leader , believe it or not is Nintendo, they are the only Electronics/Software publisher that has seen a year on year rise in stock prices and profits since 1987. So where does it all lead to?? Who knows but if I remember the 1980's, and I do very well, then it would all seem to point to...Well lets wait and see eh? SO COME ON PEOPE CHILL OUT AND BE LIKE THE FONZ...COOL 8)

I was on ign the other day and i found this! they have fully tested the battery life!
so its not exactly great!!! :-/
and if you all say screw you DS when you see the MP3 play back time dont! the DS's battery life for music playback using the Play-Yan is still long with about 15hrs. You also get a 256mb SD card which is big and the hole thing only costs around £24 and the stick that comes with the psp is only 32mb
the psp has help me so much!
it made nintendo design the DS its total new and original and i feel if the psp had not been anouced then it would be the GBA2 coming out soon! it also made nintendo redesign the Play Yan which is brilliant! and thirdly it has pushed the UK release forward (still duno when it is tho! guna have 2 wait till 27th of jan to find out) and it pushed the price of the DS aswell!!
i can see why people want to get the psp but for me i want something new! the psp has only got better graphics (now that the play yan with its mp3 and mpeg4) which would normally be find but because of the DS its just not good enough!
