For those of you with a PSP or DS...

Wanted to make a more descriptive title but ran out of room.

I never use the PSP but use the DS for hours at work every day. But I go to shows a lot (live in Vegas) and find myself taking the Touch because it looks more grown up. Lately I've become self-conscious about taking the DS to shows. But with the iDevice I not only look like a grown up, I look cool!

PSP: 13-15 year olds with baggy pants, baseball caps, and skull shirts.
DS: 3-11 year olds and cute, japanese girls in college.

This point has been made I don't know how many times. Point of the thread?

Well it makes more sense to have it because with the iPhone it's a phone first, they don't know if your txting or email or important stuff... If you whipped out your DS while standing in line somewhere, yeah i'd think you were a nerd ha but you know if it makes you happy don't let anyone tell you otherwise

Do you find yourself leaving the DS/PSP at home and taking the iDevice because you think others are looking at you weird because you're a grown person playing with a kid's toy? BTW I'm 30 years old so depending on your age this may vary

Ha.

I liked both my devices at first, but I almost "outgrew" my DS except for Mario Kart. I played my psp A LOT one summer, and then my touch came into my life and I haven't touched my psp since. I never carried around my psp or ds to many public events, but now that I have my Touch it's awesome cause I take it everywhere.

P.S. This should be in the lounge

I'm 14, so, sure I'd look silly with a DS, but those things are still pretty awesome. I was addicted with mine 'til it broke, then I shifted over to mp3 players.

PSPs, eh, they need serious revamping. They're like bricks, and kinda ugly. Sony, if they know what's good for them, should be getting a new one ready for christmas.

Probably. I haven't ventured out too much outside of this forum, it's a scary world out there

The point of the thread is... since getting the iDevice, do you find yourself using it more in public instead of a DS/PSP because you think people are judging you by playing a portable video game system in public?

Those are two different questions.

edit: nvm. they're not I thought you were talking about what they looked like and what they are.
