Yeah I'm posting this here instead of the 3DS board because I actually think the 3DS trolls will jump at the opportunity to give a comparison, since they spend so much time talking about the Vita.
Can someone please tell me what exactly a 3DS has going for it, particularly what it does better than a Vita?
This is think of when I think about a 3DS: - children's games - region lock - clunky, square design - single analog - low battery life - two screens with touch - gimmicky 3D - backwards compatability with DS... offset by region lock - Mario, Zelda, Kid Icarus, none of which I care about - doesn't come with a charger in some regions... LOL? - can be bricked by firmware update - stability issues (eg completely wiped save games on Virtue's Last Reward, and only allows ONE save) - cheaper than a Vita - selling considerably better than the Vita
So yeah, I don't understand what it does better than a Vita at all (other than being cheaper). Someone educate me. Someone give me a list of awesome games that make me go "MY GOD I WAS WRONG ALL ALONG!!!!!1111" Because all I see is a cheaper and inferior console that seems to be selling better due to having lots children's games.

3DS doesn't incite insecurity.

Just this topic and that one about countering 3DS games.
I don't even know what to say. --- Read a Nuzlocke by me and a friend at: http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/topic/8746106/1/#new Dubs>Subs

wow that's alot of reasons to hate the 3DS. The only thing I can say badly about is, is not enough Japanese type games come out in America, but that's true for all systems. I like both systems.
VITA -amazing OLED -fun console "like" experience
3DS -cool 3D experience -lots of gamecube era style games for my nostalgia of the "gamer's age". --- last $$: Gravity Rush, Pokemon Conquest, SSX, Atelier Meruru LE, Tales of Graces F Playing: Legend of Dragoon PSN/PSPgo +

Man this is almost as vicious as the Colecovision versus Atari 5200 debate of 1982. And then came 1983.....I'm still weeping over the carnage.

"Better" is purely subjective.
I am sure others will go over your list point by point, so I will just say this:
I have been having more fun with the games I have on my 3DS over the games I have on the Vita.
That is 99.98% of what I use each device for, games.

Capcom is supporting 3DS more than Vita...

Neither is doing fantastic so far. And both have a small selection of great games. --- My signature is better than yours.
