First of all, as I am new here, hello to everyone and happy New Year.
I found this forum searching through Goggle, as I was hoping to find some forum where people who are passionate about games can share their ideas, help each other to get round some issues and simply talk games, technology, new things to come etc.
I have to say I could not find any that "delivers" the above, and that includes this very one, although this is definitely one of the "less worse".
I would like to understand why people seem to spend time, posting about why the console they own is much better than the one they have chosen/have not been able (not) to have? What is the point ?
Do people who have bought say a Mercedes, spend their life going on about how crap a BMW is ? Does someone who has a nice girlfriend/wife spend his life explaining how crap other women are ?
The answer is NO of course, mainly because when you chose something, you are convinced that it is the most suitable for you and you therefore don't need to discuss why you chose it over other choices.
So I find quite amusing to see that most forums are full of posts from people who have chose a PSP over a DS (or vice versa of course) and who need to justify their choice by slagging off the PSP/DS they have not chosen!!
Call that insecurity!!! Even more amusing is the fact that most people will criticize a console they don't even own or that they have not even tried! Call that "I don't know what I am talking about"...Literally!
So why I am wasting my precious time stating the obvious ? Because I would love to find a forum where those who have a PSP exchange valuable ideas, tricks, secrets, and so on about their beloved PSP, and the same for those who own a DS (or for real gamers both like me!), instead of pointless posts from intellectually challenged spotty teenagers which a speech impediment.
I think (I think as opposed to "this is the way it is" that PSP is the best handheld I was ever given to play with and I hope good games will come aplenty, whether they are PS2 ports or not - And yes they are faulty units out there, and yes Sony is not the most reliable manufacturer out there but I suppose these things happens when you manufacture such a vast array of products.
I also really enjoy the DS, which also looks great, which has and will have some great games albeit completely different and probably aimed at a different audience, and it certainly doesn't take a genius to see how the dual screens could be used (they are obviously already being used but I am sure that could be even better).
