12:35 A survey conducted amongst 1000 Japanese gamers has shown that many PSP owners are feeling slightly disappointed with their new handheld, while DS owners feel a little more comfortable with their dual-screened baby.
Conducted by Otona Fami and reported on new games industry website Next-Gen.biz, the survey found that 14% of the gamers questioned owned a PSP compared to 25% owning a DS. Approximately one third of those surveyed planned to buy one or both of the handhelds.
While DS owners claimed that they played their handheld every day and in concentrated bursts, PSP owners seemed a little disillusioned by the games on offer. They expressed concern at the lack of original titles, complained about loading times, spoke of problems with games crashing, and said that the initial impact of the impressive widescreen display wore off quickly.
