Theres already a post about this on another thread that Matt from IGN uses a projector as well and specifically requested an extension cord while talking to some people at Pelican, who said there should be one shortly after launch.

That's comparing apples to oranges. The Wii and the PSP are not interchangable purchases for most people.

But since you're curious, Ars Technica on the most recent DS sales numbers:

The DS once again slaughters every other system in units sold
Oct. 31, 2006

Is there anything at all that can stop the DS in terms of sales? The new US NPD sales numbers are out, and the system sales are striking: the DS moved 403,435 units, while the PSP was only able to get 153,353 units off the shelves and into the hands of gamers. Is this a trend we'll see continue into the holidays, or will the PSP pick up steam with the buzz Sony is bound to get after the PS3 launch and subsequent sell-out?

Another question is that of price. The PS2 again outsold the 360, with 306,517 PS2 units moved to Microsoft's 259,458. In both cases the inexpensive system won; even with bundled software, $250 is a high price for a portable system. This proves that technology isn't the only factor when deciding what consumers are interested in, and in fact the biggest competition for*the next-generation systems may*come from their*current-generation siblings.
