3DS or VIta?

I just can't decide!!! I haven't bought either yet because I thought I'd wait and see what's coming out later for both.

I know first world problems and all that jazz, but I really can't decide =\

Wait till the Vita launches and try them both out on the day if your local store has demo models maybe? See which one you enjoy the most.

I have the 3DS, and my Vita is paid off. I waited on 3DS till Mario Kart came out, if there is no game that you "had" to have by now for the 3DS, then maybe give the Vita a try.

I think I might wait just a bit longer for both until I start seeing some big announcements.

Nothing really too interesting yet.

in terms of hardware, and I'm aware this is blasphemy, but it's more or less a wash. They will both look great when devs start to push them to their limits. For me it came down to games coming out this year. There are three 3DS games I want this year. Just three. For the Vita, however, there's somewhere around 12. I sold my 3DS and preordered a Vita. I'll grab a 3DS again when all the games I want have been released, and there is a redesign.

Definitely wait. Although I am enjoying my 3DS it still doesn't really have a well established library....unless you live in Japan that is.

You might want to wait on both. 3DS is probably getting a redesign in the next year and Vita wont have much in the way of games for a little while yet. Plus there's a decent chance the Vita could get a price drop in the next year (of some sort at least, whether it's in the memory cards or the system itself).
So if Nintendo changed the name of the Wii - U, would the be pulling a U-Wii?

This.

Also, it largely depends on what type of games that you enjoy and whether you need to have certain types of gameplay.

Although I'm getting a Vita, the 3DS is still a good option if either of the following things are important to you
- 3D
- Larger immediate library
- First party Nintendo games

I have a 3DS and plan on pre-ordering the Vita on Tuesday. I printed out a coupon from Best Buy that gets me the "week early" bundle and Uncharted thrown in for free!!

The Best Buy pre-order promotion ends on January 12. I don't know about the US, but this is only available for Canadians.
