Hooray for people seeing the word "Inferior" and automatically assuming I'm insulting the 3DS because they haven't made it to high school economics yet. My bias has nothing to do with the systems: it has to do with consumers approaching a product with the wrong mindset and the rabid fanboyism associated with competitor products.
Also it looks like no one read the part about people enjoying the games they're playing. Good job.
I read your whole post and everyone responded to it appropriately. Your bias was clearly based on you being a fanboy because your depiction of how consumers approach the products was a bitter, poorly drawn caricature. Tossing in a sidenote about how some people might prefer 3DS games amidst the rest of your whinging did little to hide that.
You clearly have no concept of the meaning of "fanboy," or you simply have poor reading comprehension. I have neither a Vita nor a 3DS, nor do I have plans to buy either any time in the near future. Calling me a fanboy is the complete opposite conclusion you should have come to.
My preference, as I've already established, is that all systems and games should be considered regardless of a name branded on the console box. I pointed out that there's a tendency toward Nintendo products in the market because of ill-informed consumers, parents especially, buying the lowest ticket item they can find. If your purchase experience resonated with the examples given, then you're no different; if not, you shouldn't pretend that it's any less true.
Nintendo makes a fine product, and their third-party support for the 3DS is proving to be excellent. Most of the Vita's library comes from PSN ports (this can actually be a very good thing) and even current-console ports such as UMvC3. There are still exclusive gems to be found for both systems. As for why the 3DS is more favored, from a market standpoint, than the Vita, it is as I have already elaborated.
Finally, as I clarified on in the second post, any bitterness present in the first post is due to consumers and not products. If you don't believe that the 3DS is as successful a product as it is chiefly because of its namesake and its low price, you're deluding yourself.
