Portable gaming on a budget

With all of the recent portable gaming price drops, which console is the best deal?

Now that both Nintendo and Sony have shown their respective upcoming portable gaming hands, each company's current-generation systems are more affordable than ever.

For the gamer on the go who might not care about the absolute latest and greatest, there are plenty of deals to be had on some very successful pieces of hardware and software.

Last week Sony lowered the price on the PSP-3000 to just $130, placing it in line with Nintendo's DS Lite. Even better, many "Greatest Hits" and other titles on the platform have received heavy discounts, bringing their price to $10 and below. The PSP Go even got the price-cut treatment, now available for just $150--the going rate for a DSi.

So with all of these recent price drops, what do you think is the best deal in the portable gaming market?
