Can I ask what you're doing writing asinine trolling posts about the DS in a Nintendo forum? This board is for people to discuss and enjoy Nintendo games and consoles - those trying to preach and evangelise that Nintendo products are inferior to other company's offerings are not welcome here. If I held a view that the PSP is not a viable gaming platform, I most certainly would not feel the need to go and ram that view down the throats of those who think it is, particularly as I know it'd get an adverse reaction.

Both you and I know that you're a worthless troll who's only purpose here is to get a kick out of riling up all the Nintendo fanboys. Given that you have nothing constructive to add to this forum, please move along.

You can take your simpleton clone, Top Score, with you too.

You're picking me up on trivialities. This is getting ridiculous.

I think everyone else understood what I meant, but I'll explain it anyway. You said the touch screen was the feature the DS was promoting, I noted that the very idea of having two screens in the first place will provide a new gaming experience.

Start basing your arguments on something solid, for your own sake, or at least try to get some background on what you're criticising.

No, you said "the very idea", which is wide open statement not restricted to any one market like games.

Yeah it's not a new idea, yet nobody except Nintendo have thought to incorporate it into games. Just like Sony released a console to fully support 3D games, and didn't bother to create a new method of control, choosing to stick with the 2D d-pad instead. Until of course Nintendo came along and stuck an analogue stick on the controller of their first 3D console, prompting a quick Sony hash job to follow.

Look, can you read what I write before you reply? I didn't at one point say that having two screens was "new" or "original". I said that in applying it to gaming, Nintendo have been "innovative".

And why are you once again drawing comparisons with the PSP when it's the DS that is in question?

Infact, I was using a Macintosh computer with 2 monitors hooked up back in 1989, and yes I know its not a "games console", but the fact remains the idea is not new. PSP has Wireless too. Not sure about the Pictochat.

FPS games are where the stylus or thumbpad help out a lot because you get a PC mouse style control which is far superior to an analogue stick.

And don't forget the built-in microphone.
