Default Game System or Digital Camera

PSP (Playstation Portable)

or

Canon Powershot S1IS

Both is the same price, what would you rather have and why

Thanks

Links

PSP

Link 1
Link 2

S1IS

Link 1
Link 2

Note: if neither interests you I also had plans for a set of 195/50/15 Toyo T1R, you can vote for that if you really hate technological devices

And the reason why I crave a PSP is because I have an excessive amount of break time at school (3-4 hours per day) and I am too inconsiderate to use that time for studying, therefore, I am frequently pissed bored.

if u don't have a camera at all then i'd say go for the camera

psp looks pretty cool...but if i just need a portable video gaming system to kill my spare time i'll go for something cheaper or just go to arcade at my school (UBC arcade is cool~ )

so personally i'll buy tires over psp...

*but i gotta admit psp is quite unresistable...if u got the spare money, then go for it man~ *

Depends on the price.
I think that I'd find Tetris on a gameboy just as entertaining, for much cheaper.

Are T1Rs necessary?

Vote: camera.

Get a 1/1.3MP phone... My digicams are now collecting dust since I got it. It is a PITA to carry a digicam around, it might get stolen, you have PDA, Cell, Keys, coins, your pocket is too damm full for another device....

As for PSP what U want it for?? Game?? MP3?? Cool factor??

Game, stick to PS2, Xbox etc, the battery life and the game lib is weak, if you just have to have 32bit gaming in your palm and don't want to look like a kindergarden kid carrying a gameboy, then wait till they up batt life and the lib has expended to like 500 games.....

MP3 stick to iPhoto, if for cool factor, well then get it.. but after like 3mths, every tom, dick and harry will have it.

Yea man, if you have a camera already, and given that the camera is working probably and not too bad, go for the PSP.
Otherwise, I think a camera worths the money...as RC0310 said, "photos are priceless at times."

To me, it would depend on how much rubber i have (grap) left on my tires. If its low, Id consider tires first.
Then digi cam, Im really happy with mine, extra memory is a must. Love'n It!
Then LCD screen in car+ ps2= Good times.

i say you should get a better phone with better camera and ones that you can download games.....

or you could wait for end of march to get the american version of PSP

if you want something to kill spare time......a camera won't help you too much

If you have a camera already go with the tires, if you don't really need the tires then treat us out to dinner instead.

Thats my vote atleast

Get the camera instead. I heard that PSP has some issues with its square button... plus it's usually better to wait when it comes to gaming consoles anyway.

yea i agree with HO4-TT, if u are gonna get PSP, dun get it when it first comes out... give it a few months or so before u get it.... prices might drop and there will be better verison of the system... especially if there are mod chips for it...
if u are not that picky about cameras, u can always get a cellphone with camera... like nokia 7270 or 6260 or some other ones...

I would wait for the sedcond gen PSP. Insider tip says Gen 1 will most likely have problems, so better to wait until bugs have been.....de-...bugged.
