    I only bought myself one of them GBC during the summer, just to finish off my handheld collection. All I'm missing from the mainstream market is the Sega Nomad (no UK release), Virtual Boy and PSP slim.

    PSP less is tempting, but all I have is a DS FATSO. :)

    I'm going to get a DS Lite shortly, hopefully the Zedla edition. I also own a GBA and a Virtual Boy -- it was a pass me on.

    None now, I've had both the PSP and the DS Lite though. I'm a bit of a fadboy when it comes to handhelds.

    Have both.

    DS does get a fair bit of play, especially the more open/casual games


    At the moment I am mostly playing.

    Brain Age 1 & 2, Vision Training, My French Coach, 42 All Time Classics (Clubhouse Games US) and Tetris


    On my PSP, I am thinking of getting rid of it and getting a SLIM PSP with the 3.17 M33 Firmware, but this is just a want rather than a need as I barely touch the PSP as it is.

    No that's just weak emulation.

    I can relate to all this too. Originally I thought the two screens was a complete gimmick (and still do to *some* extent), but it has proven to be quite good at a lot of things. Once the DS picked up a bit in software, I haven't played PSP much as it usually requires long sessions, sitting in the dark so that the glare on the screen doesn't make you think you've finally gone blind. :eek: If only the PSP screen was more matte, and brighter. I also got really sick of the fact that you can't name the videos you put on it.

    You still can't name PSP video files? Bloody hell, that was a qualm back in 2005! Thought they would have fixed that with a firmware update.

    As a general comment I much prefer handhelds over consoles. Always have, even when my Amiga was the graphical powerhouse with all its art and even video suites - I wanted a GB. Don't even do much global travelling any more and I work at home! I'm a silly one :)
