    1. Yeah, this time NDS would beat PSP for sure.

    2. How do you feel when there is no your best friend in the class?

    3. I think they keep on making better games for NDS.

    4. Do you think I'm capable with it?

    5. Do you believe in what they are saying/ they say?

    1 will
    2 How do you feel if there's no one you are very close to in your class? (or something similar)
    4 What's 'it'? It might be better to say 'capable enough for it', but it depends.
    5 believe = accept as truth believe in = have faith

    I've got a question for you.

    For number 1, why must we put 'will' instead of 'would'?

    Because it's not 100% going to win.

    I'm sorry, but your sentence is contradictory to your statement.

    Yeah, this time NDS will beat PSP for sure.
    It's differs from:
    Yeah, NDS may beat PSP this time.

    How do you feel when there is no your best friend in the class?
    How do you feel if there's no one you are very close to in your class? (or something similar)
    ''How do you feel when you don't have your best friend (with you) in (your) class?''
    ...If you want to keep it with ''best friend''.

    Some context would be helpful... ;)
