    iPod touch
    i have always laughed at psp owners
    how they PAY for games
    and how they dont have a touch screen
    sure it can play music- so can the touch and better
    sure it can play movies, go on the internet and play games
    the ipod can do all that, better and cheaper
    but then...

    i realized that f***ing steve jobs is holding it back
    the touchmods way of using sip on the touch is good for a mod
    but if apple released skype on the appstore!!!
    why do we have to fight and hack and mod to get features that only promote the product!
    sony was just like yea lets let it have skype!, why not
    but steve jobs was like, hey lets restrict and control
    idk, there is still alot more the touch has to offer
    but the psp wins in 3 ways
    bigger screen
    expandable memory
    easy to use sip-voip

    btw im selling my ipod touch mic
    because of practicality, i have a cellphone, so ive stopped caring about using my ipod for that, if interested pm me, or reply to this thread
    or go see the listing on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=260275931672&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=016

    the psp is way cheaper then the ipod touch..
    a hacked psp can have better voip than skype.
    a hacked psp can also have better video codecs and play them at full speed perfect sound
    hacked psp dont need to buy games
    hacked psp you can play emulators at full speed and also you can increase the nes emulator speed by holding the l button so it goes about 50% faster

    There IS going to be VOIP. But not for the iPod Touch since there is no Microphone for it.

    Also, if the iPod Touch WERE to get VOIP, what would happen to people with iPhones? And the iPhone itself? Do you not think sales would go down? Do you not think cellular companies would be angry that its losing customers?

    I agree that the PSP is great for gaming, BECAUSE IT WAS DESIGNED FOR IT.

    The iPod Touch/iPhone CAN Be good for gaming, but only if the games are designed for the Platform itself.

    As far as playing Media, the iPod Touch/iPhone is way better than the PSP. Screen Size means nothing if it can't render the media nicely or if doesn't have enough pixels.

    I would have to go with the ipod touch. It has a lot more space than the PSP and I am perfectly content with the gaming. Plus, it is cooler looking and has a touch screen.

    a psp 160$
    8 gig memory card 80$ (newegg.com)
    which is 240$
    ipod touch 8gb 300$
    actually the psp does well with playing videos and more codecs tes..
    video controls are harder tho

    That's what i was going to say, the PSP is only good for gaming, the rest of it's features are just like little add-ons.

    hmm...
    well i did forget that you can hack your psp
    and if you really can run emulators and install games manually than that evens the field a little bit
    id say another big disadvantage is the keyboard
    its a pain in the ass whereas the ipods is just a little clumsy at first
    the ultimate thing would be an ipod touch with a bigger high resolution screen
    and with Touch screen and some sleek buttons
    now that would be awesome oh yea, and some speakers
    i will give the psp credit for being pretty sleek (though the ipod wins)
    and this fantasy device would be as thin as a nano, with a black scratch resistant carbon back
    and it would come with at least 8gb with a sleek memory expansion port
    if apple and sony got together and made this....
    =D

    Oh god, Sony + Apple? No, please no. The iPod Touch/iPhone is fine the way it is. It doesn't need anything from Sony.

    The iPhone could probably use Sony's Lens/Camera technology and thats about it.

    It doesn't need any extra buttons and the Keyboard is just fine.
