Guild Wars, PSP & DS

Well I was a little late getting guild wars and only got to play it for about half a day all up, a couple of hours at night then til about 12 the next day, it looked simply amazing though and I loved it, I am going to buy it for sure when it comes out at the end of the year, I can't wait that long though! NOT FAIR! Didn't end up going War Driving today, might go tomorrow though?

Of course heres what we've all been waiting for, the shots of the PSP and the Nintendo DS, here are the finished designs both shown at E3, people could actually use the Nintendo DS there though so I expect its in a much more final state than the PSP, we might even see it before the end of the year if we're lucky. Gotta love the PSP's graphics though as shown in the Grand Turismo 4 Screenshot.
