New PSP is slimmer, lighter.

This is the forum to discuss all of those video games you love playing or that are coming out. From Transformers video games to Fighting games to Sports games ... whatever makes you a happy Seibertronian. Just keep it the topics and conversations game and console related.

On a related note, I was hoping Nintendo would have revealed that rumored DS with the closer together screens and more comfortable grip. Definately would have upgraded to that from my old DS "Phat".


It's called the DS Lite. It's something like 2/3 smaller and 30% lighter than the original.

As for 'mature games,' if people mean guts and gore, that doesn't make a great game (though I've played plenty good ones with it), and I've never been a fan of GTA. I find, if anything, 'mature' should apply to players who look don't look at 'rated E' as a condemning mark for a game, and idolize good solid gameplay over empty, brain-numbing violence.


No, thats not how it goes. When we say mature games, we dont mean stuff with simple mindless blood and violence, we mean we want stuff that isnt obviously aimed and designed for 5 year olds. I.E. Mario and its endless spin offs, starfox and stupid kiddy character based games like that which is all the DS ever has and all Nintendo ever comes out with.

We want an intelligent, exciting, realistic, adult experiance. If swearing and blood make it into the mix then thats just an added bonus.

Yeah by "mature" I mean, no pokemon blue diamond fom the bottom of the ocean crap, If I wanted to raise an animal I would buy one. And not every other game needs to be mario or wario. I know ds has other games that are not that but the "bulk" are those types of games in one form or another.

It's cool that they got a slimmer psp. But, that's not i wanted. The thing i would want the most is a right analog stick, because turning with the same stic to use for walking is really difficult for me.

Second Paragraph sums me up exactly. And why GTA never cut it for me. But, as well, Prince of Persia and God of War are amoung my favorite titles. Violence is cool if it backs a good story and intense gameplay. What I'm just not cool with is why some people seem to instantly condemn games without the blood and gore as something strictly for the kiddies.

Exactly. Without a second analog stick, a revamped PSP is pretty pointless imo. I'll just keep my old one. I don't play it enough for the battery life to be a problem anyways.
