Sizing up the handhelds: DSi, PSP-3000, iPhone

October 2, 2008

Joystiq put together this handy dandy chart speccing out the 3 major handheld gaming platforms.

Key points:

  • DSi has the worst camera by far, 0.3 mpxl
  • PSP-3000 has the beefiest gaming horsepower
  • DSi is slightly taller and thicker than PSP-3000
  • iPhone has the best touch screen
  • DSi beats the iPhone camera by having one facing both directions (if only it had the power to handle voice chatting)
  • iPhone has the best networking abilities with EDGE/3G and Bluetooth
  • PSP-3000 has the largest (and probably best, visually) screen
  • All three can interface with a parent unit (Mac, Wii, PS3)

      Hate to be the first to comment on my own post, but I think it’s pretty interesting to note that this old post from April shows the Intendo faithful getting 2 of the new features right. You guys rock.

      And i dunno why, but that post is getting more traffic than the actual DSi announcement and detail posts.

      What bothers me about this mini update is that it doesn’t address one of the biggest graphical problems of the DS, which is screen resolution. This makes it so that no matter how many textures you try to cram into your game (hello square enix and team ninja!) it still only looks barely palatable compared to a first gen PSP game.
