DSi LL Crushes PSP Go

nintndo-dsi-ll

Nintendo’s much maligned DSi LL has sold 104,000 units in two days, according to Enterbrain estimates, double what Sony’s nogoing PSP Go managed in three weeks of release.

However, the DSi LL itself barely managed half the DSi’s two day sales of 170,000…

The tale can readily be told in release day queue comparisons:

It seems that the PSP Go is a failure of exceptional proportions, even compared to the limited charms of the DS Chunky.

The DSi LL is available now.

    I prefer PSPs, and my PSPs are my favorite system next to Dreamcast, but still above SNES.

    ...but both systems are made of distilled failjuice. The DSI-LL isn't too big for me, and I'd get it if I wanted a DSi (iDon't - I'd rather have a GBA slot than cameras and DSiWare) but at least Nintendo gives something in return for their lost functionality instead of the PSP Go's choice of simply giving you a subset of the PSP's functions at a higher price with a smaller screen and cramped buttons... I mean WTF. I'll play PSP until my fingers fall off, but the Go is just weak...

    I'm so happy to read this. That'll teach the Sony retards that making an exessively expensive and watered down PSP will give them disastrous results. I hope they keep losing money as if they were having a hemorrage.

    i dont know why some many people like DS, personally i own a psp 2000 amd a DS lite. the grahic are not even comparable. DS lite is barely better than a gameboy advance 3d grahic are like papers taped together to look 3d(play phanasy star and u will see what i mean). no actually i think DS should be call portable famicon.

    What? The graphics of the DS are far superior to a GBA. Or a famicom for that matter. Yes the PSP is much more superior in graphics, but graphics has never been the critical success factor for any gaming system to ever exist.

    I have a lot of fun with my DS. I've bought almost 30 games for it, and that's a miracle since I rarely get 10 for any console I have at home.

    PSP is alright but it has less than 10 games that are fun and I think are worth the money (that depends on what you like to play of course). It IS a very neat piece of portable media device, but it's kind of a pain to convert everything.

    graphics aren't everything, sales prove this. it like why street fighter is better than mortal combat...it plays better, its more fun, it is better. psp is fail, handheld games are for people on the move usually and casual gamers, the psp fail to appeal, no touch screen was a big no no.

    grahic are not every thing but one of the most important factor. for example i dont play disgea on ds because of grahic but i play it on the psp. mortal combat is shit because it is char arefrom comic book and alway end with the word "man".

    for example it ur give 9/10 for modern warfar 2, left 4 dead 2 and assasin creed. what would you give to it when it is degraded to ps2 grahic?

    PSP Go was doomed to fail due some terrible decisions from management.

    Is the stupid fucking Fat DS, the 4th god damn DS to come out, 'crushing' it? Fuck no. I'm sure that the GBA probably would've sold more from the time the PSP Go was released until this statistic.

    Seriously, why the fuck do people keep buying DSes? They're the same fucking thing as the first one, except smaller in one case, smaller with a shitty pixilated camera which many 1990s cell phones outdo, and one that's the larger version of the smaller one. Of which all games are just stretched so they fit the screen, making it look disgusting.

    Japanese are update-shiny-gadgets whores. They love to have the latest thing available. Pretty much like mac-tards love to have 10 ipods (although those break too easily so it might be more of a necessity)

    Completely understandable, I rather buy a DS Chunky than a PSP Go. In fact I may buy one if they bring it over here for a reduced price when compared to the DSi.

    Maybe if they stopped releasing the same system with a few tweaks here and there over and over again, they'd get better sales.

    Or just wait for an pretentious rich sony fanboy to practically give it away after buying it just to follow the fad. I bet ebay will be full of them at less than 100 bucks in a few months.

    The PsP was a bomb to begin with with its Overpriced UMD movies and the worst of it all..

    No second "Joystick"! Hell, if they just sacrificed some resolution on the screen. They could've made a Touch Screen no less. Would of made a few of those games a little bit more user friendly I say. Seriously, the flipping i-phone has fucking games on it that uses nothing but the fucking screen right?

    I believe that if they'd just sold the goddamn movies at a price under $10, it would of found a market as a on the "Go" entertainment system at the very least.

    Sorry to be interrupt you, but I think you're pointing out the wrong aspects. There's totally nothing wrong with not having a second nub. Maybe it'll cause some games not to play that well as you're used to on the PS, but then again, those are mostly the games you should play at home. That's my personal opinion though. The large difference between the DS and PSP is mostly its "use". DS has dual screen and a touch screen, and a low qual mic while we're at it. The PSP gives quality as in graphics, the mobo is pretty nice, and it has great online functions as well. It does resemble the way Sony handles consoles.

    Overpriced UMD movies, yeah I guess...Then again, I rarely watch movies on a handheld. I might as well buy an MP4 player etc. But 10 bucks? You do know they still have to make SOME profit... It'd be quite unfair as well.

    i dono whats the deal with everyone putting down the dsiLL? i personally would actually want one, bigger screen, more battery? if im not mistaken? or is it more battery consumption?, but as long as i can fit it in my pocket, then all good, heck, right now im using a plastic case which boosts it by 100grams and makes it fatter anyway, i dont care,

    I believe the main complain was that even though the screen is bigger, but the resolution remain unchanged, so visually it ain't gonna be as sharp as DSI or DSL.

    And for exactly that reason EroMango, several game producers refuse to release on the Go.

    Like Kingdom Hearts for example.

    I love my DSi!
    It even outsold its oversized li'l bro...

    I guess being the younger system "DSi XL / DSi LL" will be looking up to its big bro, the "DSi"--which is actually smaller.

    But one thing the XL will cater to...? The visually-handicapped who are unable to see it if it's small. That system will propel Nintendo above even Microsoft...

    The makers of the undisputed champ Game Boy have another runaway success in the making...now all it needs it a killer app of 2010. We just gotta finish 2009.

    This is expected... I don't know much about the DSi LL, but the PSP Go definitely should be scrapped immediately. Sony should just accept the fact that us gamers would never accept the Go. Scrapping it would save them so much more resources instead of trying to promote it further.

    - Same battery life as the regular PSP, despite the fact it's missing the UMD drive.
    - Priced significantly higher than the regular PSP, only $50 difference from a PS3.
    - Required to buy Sony specific peripherals, and the old PSP peripherals won't work on the PSP Go.
    - Screen is smaller.
    - Cramped button and controller placement if you have big hands.
    - All games are Digital Downloads only, so Sony sets the price without worry of competing prices, so they can keep the same launch price 10 years from the game's release.
    - Different SD card type from the original.
    - Region locked, since you can't buy games outside the country with your account.
    - No UMD support for people who already have cartridges.
    - There are more, but I forgot them at the moment.

    The battery's lifespan is worse? Wow.. Didn't know that part.

    Anyways, forgot to mention that the casing is a rather flimsy plastic so Sony can produce the casings at a cheaper rate and to keep it light.
