Every year, IGN puts out their guide to the best gear for the holiday season… and this year they don’t disappoint! They have released their 2006 Holiday Buyer’s Guide, and here is their insight into the best games to put under the tree for both the DS and PSP:

Ds guide

With all of this momentum behind the Nintendo DS comes a ton of fantastic games to own. Games for the hardcore. Games for the grandparents. Games for the younger crowd. There’s a wide range of software for the system, and we’ve gone through this year’s releases and handpicked the games that will make any DS owner cheer this holiday season.

    I completely agree with all the ones mentioned for the DS, because they are pretty much marketed to come out for the holidays, and are HUGE games for the DS this year.

    But the PSP’s has a few games missing (imo) from it.

    Namely Fire Team Bravo 2 (Excuse my mistake if it’s actually on there)

    Good job with pumping out the info. :)
