I have been a Vita owner since October last year, and I must say that I'm pretty disappointed. The hardware is amazing. I had a psp as well, and the improvements, both aesthetically and hardware wise is quite vast. However, I'm very disappointed in the amount of games that has been released has been rather poor. While I wish it would sell better, I am not surprised its doing so poorly. In my opinion, the best game released thus far is Uncharted: Golden Abyss, but even that isn't that amazing.
While I don't personally dont regret buying a Vita, it's only because I have the money to buy one. If I was living on a tighter budget, I would definitely have second thoughts.
What are your thoughts?
(keep in mind that this is EU, and I've yet to try the beloved Persona 4. Even this is a bit disappointing though, as it's a PS2 remake, and not a Vita original.)
My launch Vita and I were happy for a while. Though the games were few, we looked forward to the day we could play Zero Escape on the Vita's screen, which was noticeably larger than the 3DS' at the time.
Then the 3DS had cosmetic surgery and had its' screen size augmented. With the screen sizes now about even, the honeymoon was officially over, and we (the Vita and myself) went our separate ways.
During the breakup, the 3DS XL introduced me to its' JP cousin, the 3DS LL, and a little game called Senran Kagura.
In a last ditch effort to win back my affections, Vita courted the girls of Senran Kagura, and caught my attention. Now, I have a shiny new Vita, that I think I will be very happy with come Feb 28.

I'm satisfied to say the least. I agree the hardware is amazing, there is nothing I would change (just add TV output which most probably will be released sometime). Got mine just 2 months ago, and I haven't been bored a single day yet. However, I know the library of games is small and I think it really needs big titles to be as good as the PSP was. If you look at the PSP, SE helped A LOT to it's sales: 2 Dissidias, Crisis Core, Birth by Sleep, War of the Lions and FF4CC were all system sellers. The Vita doesn't have that support yet. But also considering it only has 1 year, I wouldn't worry too much yet.
