I'm content with my DS.  Besides, Microsoft still hasn't convinced me to buy an Xbox/360 so I doubt they'll win me over on a portable system.

Touching is good.

X-Box handhelds aren't.

While I see the console market supporting three machines, I really don't see it happening anytime soon in the handheld market.  Certainly the PSP has expanded the kind of people who have a handheld, but I just don't see the target market for the Xbox springing for a portable any time soon.

Seriously.  Until I see enough quality RPGs on the "main" system I can't get on another platform, why would I have the slightest interest in their portable offering?

well If it was a cheap portable media center with games functionality with a hard drive, I would buy just for the multimedia functions. Otherwise, I'd has to somehow beat the psp in the coolness factor or beat the DS in the originality factor. Somehow, I don't see that happening.
