Cmon guys, lay off him a bit!  (unless there's some insider thing I'm missing out on, in which case I encourage you to carry on).

Either way, it depends on what you're looking for.

The DS has way, way more genre diversity in its games.  Phoenix Wright, Advance Wars, New Mario Bros, Pokemon Diamond and so on and so forth.  The PSP has more faithful-to-console games.  It has some serious fighting games (Import Guilty Gear Judgment>all) as well as games like Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and, as you all know and love, Marvel Ultimate Alliance. 

Both are haxxable, though.  Flash carts for the DS allow you to download the games and play em.  And the PSP has all that downgrader business. 

Hax-wise, the PSP has alot more in the advantage department.  The PSP can competently emulate the GBA, PS1, SNES, NES and so on and so on.  Great stuff.  The DS has the GBA, is all. Not that this is a bad thing, as the GBA is good stuff.

Ultimately, it boils down to which kind of games you're looking for.  If you're looking for a combinaion of classical and unique appeal (there's more than enough in the way of non-kiddy DS games to the point where you can't label the DS as "kiddy") then the DS is it.  If you're looking for portable versions of PS2 games with a big amount of haxxability, get the PSP.

What would I recommend?  Being a tactical RPG and Fighting game fan (though I love all genres), the PSP looks better to me.  The DS, though, is objectively the better of the two.  (Another thing is that no PSP games last longer than 20 hours, which may or may not be a bad thing for you)

I would recommend the PSP as it has more features and Sony is more trusted.

Yeah, you can't cay that Sony's more trusted due to how long they've been operating - Nintendo dates back to the 19th Century - making card games

The psp and the nds has the same features. . .

Huh?  They're nothing alike.  If that was the case the PSP would have a touch screen and the DS would have an analog thumbstick.

In the end by the system based on the games.  If you want more mature games, buy a PSP.  If you like Mario-esque stuff, buy a DS.  Both have lots of incredible games, and when it comes down to it they're pretty much even.  So buy what plays the games you like.

I would have to say DS, because the PSP has some decent games, but the controls suck, the graphics, are crappy
How could you say that PSP's graphics are crappy, their awesome for a console that size! Might be crappy compared to a PS3 on a 46-inch LCD HDTV....=P

ok.  lets talk facts here.
PSP has a larger homebrew community, but DS is infinitely easier to mod. All it requires is a simple flashcart, either a slot 1 or slot 2 device.
DS homebrew has everything I need, emulators, media players (audio and video), VoIP, book readers, AN INCREDIBLE TACTILE COMIC BOOK READER, and even an (ugly) web browser.
 
PSP may have emulators for NES, GBA, SNES and PS1
and DS does have emulators for NES, SNES, Genesis, Gameboy and GBA (although you can only do GBA emulation through a slot 2 flashcart)

on specs, yes PSP has far superior graphics and sound, but in gameplay it is drastically behind.

it just comes down to personal preference, if you like racing games, 3d action games(like GTA) or sports games, get a PSP. if you like RPG's strategy games and puzzle games get a DS (oh and FPS's too,  Metroid Prime Hunters and Brothers in Arms are great).  There are great Action and Adventure games for both handhelds.

PSP and DS are relatively evenly matched in emulation prowess. Sure, the DS supports GBA natively, but the PSP is strong enough to handle it fully. Plus, the PSP also has the PSOne and N64 emulation, something unreachable to DS owners for quite a while, I suppose :)

And then there's MAME, which I'm not sure the DS even is friends with. And all of its subbranches (Neo-Geo, anyone? Or maybe CPS?)

Gameplay-wise, both systems have their own uniques, although the DS is obviously in the lead for novelty. But you can't play XML2 on the DS, can you? You can play MUA, there's a GBA version out there, too, but...

It all boils down to which games you like more; like all other console wars, this one is won by your choice in exclusive entertainment.
