    Makes you think on why Nintendo is trying another home council when there handheld sales are slaughtering the competition.

    Still not sure if I am ready to give Nintendo another shot. They burned me with the N64 which I purchased when it first came out. I was so sick of Mario 64 and Mario Kart and the complete lack of rpg's (at time of release and for awhile after) and Zelda kept getting pushed back. I ended up trading it to a coworker for a PSX and never looked back.

    Damn, Nintendo is kicking a$$ with that little DS Lite. I'm a die-hard PSP gamer but even I want a DS Lite. Good for Nintendo.

    The handheld market domination probably allows them to have more freedom to be innovative and go their own way with the Wii. Nintendos future looks bright.

    The PSP really needs to see a price drop. DS Lite is only $129.99 brand new. If the PSP was down to $149.99 it would be more competitive with the DS. With the onslaught of amazing games set to release this FALL for the PSP, I think Sony will gain a lot of ground with the PSP.

    nintendo has sucked since gba and n64 with a few exceptions like the final fantasy remakes and metroid hunters. maby so many people buy nintendo systems because they remember the gameboy and snes and mario.

    and xbox sucks too if you have a good computer.

    game cube sucks all together.

    playstation stuff and computer stuff are really the only new gaming systems that I really care about now, lol.

    naw. nintendo games are badass. how can you say that gamecube sucks with games like smash brothers, wario ware, resident evil 4, and the zelda games (including twilight princess). plus GBA had quite a few great games too. and the DS is awesome in it's own way too. nintendo is kickin some ass in japan.

    Well to be purely SONY and condemn everyone else in today's increasingly popular gaming world is very biased.

    I have, a PSP, DS, XBOX 360, PS2, & GameCube.

    Sure each has its own pros & cons but by having them all, you really benefit. Each has plenty of unique benefits as opposed to just owning ONE and boycotting the others.

    I forgot about those games

    yeah... i have all of the new nintendo and sony systems like ds, psp, gamecube, gba and ps2.. I guess nintendo isn't THAT bad, but I would be willing to sacrafice the gamecube in exchange for something else, same with my old beat up gba.
