if you were just using it for games
and money is not an object
and these are your only two choices

would you get an ITouch, or a DS, and why?

my brother is buying a birthday gift for himself, and he's torn between the two

I would say the DS alot of good games. I really dont know anything good for the Itouch off the top of my head. DS has hotel dusk trauma center, phoenix write, chrono trigger and many other games.

PSP has a massive library of games, or a DS if you have to - scribblenauts looks great

DS, if you can't find some good games, make em ;P [url:1of6cahb]http://www.dsgamemaker.com/[/url:1of6cahb]
Although to do that you'd still need something that lets you run homebrew like R4 or something...

Edit: Ah! he might want to look at the GP2X actually [url:1of6cahb]http://gp2x.co.uk/[/url:1of6cahb] very awesome handheld linux console/pc and comes with all the dev ware to make stuff for it as well. Although, if you wait for their other product, Open Pandora [url:1of6cahb]http://openpandora.org/[/url:1of6cahb], it's going to be even better =D

Edit 2: Seems Open Pandora is selling right now, just limited due to it still being updated, but this is probably all you need to hear [quote:1of6cahb]How powerful is it?
It is by far the most powerful handheld in the world both in terms of raw CPU power and 3D graphics capability, it will be able to handle things such as Firefox3 or Quake3 with ease.[/quote:1of6cahb] :P

If he's looking purely for a gaming machine... DS, hands down. I love my iPhone, but gaming is more of an 'extra' on it - and definitely not a main attraction.

I love my DS, it has lots of fun games to play. And if your friends have DSs too, it gets a ton more entertaining. For example, Mario Kart WiFi with 8 players - pure awesomeness.

Of course DS would be better than the iTouch, it was specifically made for gaming.

DS. But a PSP is way better since it can do almost everything.
