I got a presale at MediaPlay two days ago. I went to MediaPlay and got my PSP at midnight. w00t! I went there, and there was barely anybody there to get one, which was surprising to me. I think even people that didn't do a presale got one. Because I don't think that MediaPlay sold all of their presales, but don't quote me on that. I don't think, I saw more than 10 people buying the PSP. But I'm sure that it will be a different story in the morning.

So did anybody else get one? Where did you buy it? How people where there to purchase the Sony PSP? If you don't have a PSP, do you plan on hunting for a PSP to buy?

I'm not much of a handheld gamer even though I have a GBA and GBA SP. I don't even have a single game for them, I just used them for Game Cube's Crystal Chronicles.

On the DS- I'm sure the awkward feel and control has driven customers away however there are some clever and fun games nonetheless. Feel The Magic being the game I've had the most experience with. Wario Ware Touched I'm sure will be another hit. You are correct on the extension on the Game Boy line and the DS not being it. Nintendo was very clear on this at launch. They are confident both handhelds can co-exist, so you don't have to worry about Nintendo pulling a Sega (ala 32X). Not just yet anyway!

With the target price of $99 for the next Game Boy most people feel this will just be an updated SP. However with penetration pricing being the norm these days in the industry this is just fan speculation.

Picked mine up at EB Games locally last night at midnight. This system and games simply brings handheld gaming into the current generation. I bought Lumines, Need For Speed U:R, and NFL Street2 and eagerly awaiting MVP Baseball.

Nintendo fans might not like the PSP because of the price point but everyone should at least drop by a store to see the machine in real life in motion. The graphics and games are just jaw-dropping.

My 2 cents.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

The graphics kinna reminded me of the PC Engine or Turbo Graphix 16. Just my opinion, no need to flame!!!!

Again, like I said in my earlier post I'm not a handheld gamer so don't think I'm a Nintendo fanboy. I dislike them all equally!

I saw a kid playing with one at school, that thing is amazing. I have a DS already. I am very disappointed with the lack of quality games for it. I think the PSP is really the way to go. I don't do enough mobile gaming to spend that much money, I mainly bought my DS because I wanted to be able to play all my older GB games.

I have a DS also, but I barely use it. But it's okay, I'm not really seeing any games that I'm dying to have for the DS either.

I just can't set my PSP down for a minute without thinking about it. I think, we'll be seeing some great innovative features coming in the future for the PSP. A feature that I'm impressed with at the moment is the PSP being able to use my wireless connection, and one of my games can even use the Internet to download content onto the memory card in the PSP. But I got a message from the video game developer that downloadable content will be coming soon.

Plus, there are already some great apps to use in conjuction with the PSP on the mac side, but the good ones cost money at the moment. I guess, I'll just have to want for some free apps ones.

I think the 2 screens on the DS are really pretty worthless.

I just picked on up at Best Buy. They still have lots left. Guess they got over 200 in. Well I must say it is a jaw-dropper. Definetely worth the $250. Although there is some sort of defective screen on mine. Seems like dust or dirt was in the screen at manufacture. i bought a best buy plan so after work i hope to return it.

i really want to try the online mode and play someone across my wireless network. SO COOL!!

I was to scared to buy the ds. I didn't understand playin' with two screens. It makes sence in some situations, but for most I think it would be weird. If anyone owns it and doesn't like it, I'm sorry and wish you luck in seeling it. PSP looks nice, but I don't think I have the funds to be able to buy it.
