Nothing. I got a Vita at launch, just like I got a 3DS at launch. I found a number of games for both that I really enjoy, granted, mostly imports.

The thing that did make it tough being an Vita owner at first was the price of the memory cards though. I missed the part that said that there wasn't going to be a memory card included with my Vita, and since then I have had to upgrade to a higher memory card, which in my opinion cost too much.

Overall, I still play my 3DS more, but I love my Vita as well and am glad I got it.

no good games, just rehashes and watered down sequels

plus its about $100 too expensive, and phones have better specs and are cheaper

it wont be around much longer, and i dont want to feel cheated if i buy it now

I'm asking here as I know this board has more Nintendo fans then Sony fans.

SO tell me what is the main reason you hate the Vita or won't get one. Is it because you are only loyal to one company ?

Nothing. I own a vita and PSP. It rox having both sides so you dont miss anything.
IOS Fanboy. Cant afford a 16 dollar app but can afford a 499$ device.

Understanding "mobile" gaming, isn't exactly, understanding HANDHELD GAMING NEEDS.

It's mainly the price. If it dropped down to the same price as the 3DS then I'd be inclined to pick one up. I've got plenty of games on my PSN account that I'd be able to play on it, and P4 golden would keep me happy too.

I do own a 3DS though. And a Wii. And a PS3.
Are you seriously asking if something is stupid about an economy made up out of hats?
