It’s out in late March for a mere £129


£129 = $259 CDN.
Nintendo DS = $169.99 CDN.
Total = $428.99 CDN.

PSP = $278.99 CDN.

Yea, this accessory really means the end of the PSP

Storage space is of little concern when the PSP already beats the features offered with this accessory at a much smaller price. You don't have to buy a 4GB memory stick to play an MP3 on the PSP.

I see, that 32mb memory stick that is offered is good enough

Also, let's not forget other companies and Nintendo asw ell already have media addon capabilities for the DS for a mere 40-60$ And, still comes cheaper than PSP.

Is it posible to turn off the light only on the touchscreen and only keep it on the upper screen? Then this would totaly kickass.

That looks really awesome, if you don't have a psp. The psp's screen beats the crap out of the DS's for movie playback so I have know idea how this would be a psp killer. It certainly is great for the people who cant afford both or don't care to own a psp yet still want multimedia capabilities. For 4gigs the price is deffinetly reasonable.

If this device doesn't make the DS too much bigger than it already is, I give Codejunkies and Nintendo props.

Im really intrested in this. Sure my psp can already do all this, but i dont play any games (except lumines) on it or take it anywhere. Expensive dust collector at the moment.

The DS i take everywhere and play it alot. A media player for it would be sweet

It actually would be good if It could run homebrew software. Other than that,
I really don't think the DS screen is large enough to watch anything. I still
have yet to run media on my DS via my M3 Adapter. Heck, I found my PSP screen
too small to watch anime's, especially with subtitles. I can't imagine how small
they would appear on the DS, especially with the black borders.

I also don't think you'd get much playtime running off a hard drive being that it
draws power from the DS. Also, the hard drive looks mighty big.

No thanks, do yourself a favour and buy an M3 and a 2GB SD or CF card for
much cheaper (and you get homebrew too!).

Nf.

I'm sure this is a tough thread for some people to post in. I mean, you've got the crowd that screams "gameplay" from the rooftops, believe nintendo can do no wrong, and readily bash Microsoft and Sony for ruining the industry by adding more features to consoles (and in Sony's case, to portables). Now this device shows up and suddenly we have a 180 on these negative views.

I think this device will add so much needed coolness to the DS, so long as it doesn't make it too fat like the Codejunkies 4GB HD does to the PSP.

PSP killer meant the DS, the HD was a bonus topic.

Meh the DS just isnt built to play movies, PSP has a better screen and a widescreen that just makes it better imo. Dont take this as fanboyism as I sold my PSP due to a lack of games and still have my DS.

And what happened to all the DS people saying "Who cares about movies handhelds are for games only!!1one11 Now that something comes out for the DS you are all jumping up and down?

Nah... not everyone is jumping. The screen is just to damn small for widescreen things or animes. There are still some 4:3 things out there but... I don't know, the DS screen is already small as it gets and then the black bars. No tnx:>

I'd consider getting it if it didn't stick out the bottom of the DS. Seriously, can't they make it to where it just fills in that gap at the bottom? The DS is already big enough...

Oh well...

Funny how ManicDVLN has been downplaying the media features of the psp since the beginning of time, but when nintendo gets a taste of it, he goes bananas.
