* Japanese prefer the DS

Japan Times has a blurb up: Japanese gamers prefer the Nintendo DS to the Sony PSP.

I can't blame them - I prefer the DS as well.

Analysts say that while the PSP has razor-sharp screen resolution and stylish design, it is no match for the Nintendo DS in terms of uniqueness. It fails as an attractive game console, they say.

"With a dual touch-sensitive screen, voice recognition and wireless communication, the Nintendo DS has a load of new features," said Eiji Maeda, game analyst at Daiwa Institute of Research Ltd.
I'm sure the fact that it's completely incompatible with all old Playstation titles and DVD movies (due to the small-sized discs they're using), while the DS has ready access to the entire past Gameboy library, is hurting it too.
