Good to see both sides agree... almost.

Seems like DS is not popular with devs. ;_;

I like how Final Fantasy VII Advent Children is on the list. It's not even a game! Or a PSP exclusive

There's a PSP exclusive game on that list? Where?

Haha, right. Maybe that explains why Metal Gear Ac!d is #1? Unless they really like card games!

have you seen th DS list also?

they're all tried and true franchises.

No, really, I swear to God, I was kidding. I was just about to copy and paste that the DS list has three separate entries for regular Mario games, and ask how that was possible.

Nintendo: "sheet! sheet!! eeat haaapeneeeng ageeen!!!"

hehe. I think when both are released people will realise how different each system is from one another. Almost like comparing a PDA to a gameboy.

Both are aiming for different audiences, with agendas only overlapping at various points.

They'll both find their place.

um, what is this?
That is Capcom's court room game thing where you try to succeed in the court by presenting various witnesses/evidence at the right time and moments. It's much more complicated and a hell of a lot of fun. It's actually a very nice series so far. It's rumored to make the jump to America as well. A DS version would rock, maybe they can go the investigation root too and have you search areas for clues and things. Who knows.

Sounds like a cool concept that hasn't been tried here in the US...

I'd probably jump on something like this...
