Default Are PSP's worth the money?

i was thinking about getting the GOW PSP bundle, but are they worth it? I dont travel alot and the only thing i would use it for is movies and games. i was thinking about getting a zune or something like that for movie watching on the go but they're about the same price as a PSP and if i'm gonna pay that much i might as well get the PSP to play games right? Or does anyone know of any portable video players less than $100 that are good? if i gotta pay over $100 i'll probably just go with the psp.

They are by far the best hand held device IMO. ALthough mine has sat on my end table for 2 yrs now.

I don't really think they are.
not nearly enough good games imo.
I bought one just to play Castlevania X, but have been disappointed overall regarding other games.
DS absolutely smokes psp imo.

I havent tried the DS much, so I may have overstated the "best by far"

Shitload of great games, but if you don't travel, then I don't see the point.

PSP has better graphics and you can do more but DS has better games.

The system looks cool and handles wifi decently but like others have stated, there are not enough good games on the system. I bought Castlevania The Dracula X Chronicles, and maybe I'm just getting old, but that game was hard as hell. Fun for a few levels and just got hard to the point that I didn't want to play anymore.

Highly questionably statement, as DS has no action game of the caliber of God of War: COO and no RPG the caliber of Crisis Core: FF7.

The "PSP has no games" thing is just groupthink mantra that has nothing to do with reality. Unless you travel for an hour everyday, there is no way you'll beat all the great games it has to offer. I challenge you to beat FFT: War of the Lions alone.
