It looks a little small compared to the PSP, but to those that have it...how is it? Any issues with games such as Blazblue & MvC? I ask because the dpad on the 3DS was one of the main reasons I sold mine. It was tiny, but it just felt so cheap and spongy. I don't mind a small dpad as long as it works fine for fighters...because I refuse to play MvC etc with an analog stick.

I have read the same. They like it more than the PSP pad.

Its much easier to use than the PSP's Dpad.

You can feel it very solidly click down when you press it, which I Find to be very nice.

Does the left analog stick ever get in the way? I am getting Blazblue and probably UMVC3 later on and really hope the DPad is solid.

I absolutely LOVE the new d-pad on the Vita. I've found it extremely good for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Has a nice feel to it and rolls around nicely. I'm glad they tweaked it for the Vita.

The D-pad is really great this time around. I mainly play fighting games on consoles (with a joystick) and I can actually pull off alot of combos in UMvC3 on the Vita since I got it a few days ago. I can definitely say the Vita has my favorite D-pad ever, even over the PS3's one.
