2013 lineup...Vita vs. 3DS
This year, 3DS by far. Monster Hunter, Fire Emblem and Luigi's Mansion were all stellar, with Vita's only answer to those being a DOA5 port so far. Killzone, Soul Sacrifice, and Tearaway should all score very well and look great, but honestly, it's a no brainer that this year is going to 3DS.
I honestly don't see what's good about MH. I even got the MH3U demo, and it felt clunky, slow, and it had strange controls. Not to mention it has no story, just hunting monsters just because.

for me it's the Vita, an easy no brainer. the reason why is simple, i just don't like, nor will i ever like games such as Pokemon, Animal Crossing or SMT Soul Hackers (i don't care much for the 2D dungeon crawler look of the SMT games... although SMT IV looks like it may change my mind... but Soul Hackers i still don't like nor will i buy it. the Persona games in the other hand i do like (i own P1, P2, P3P, P4G and i'm looking out for the other version of P2 when it's released in the US).
but even if i did like those above Nintendo games i mentioned (Pokemon etc.), the Vita still would be my choice because it has a huge list of upcoming games that i will without a doubt buy.
for example... i've copied and pasted a list made from a poster on the 1st pg...
MLB 13: The Show
Dead or Alive 5 Plus
HISTORY Legends of War: Patton
Atelier Totori Plus
Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault
Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee
Thomas Was Alone
Final Fantasy X HD
Final Fantasy X-2 HD
LEGO Legends of Chima
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
Valhalla Knights 3
Ys: Memories of Celceta
Epic Mickey 2
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
Zombie Tycoon 2
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R
Frozen Synapse: Tactics
Bit.Trip Runner 2
The Walking Dead
Box! Open Me
God Eater 2 - which will most likely be localized
so there's ALL of those plus any others that either don't have release dates or aren't yet announced. either way there will be more, you can count on that... especially if things move the way they are currently moving (i.e. multiple/new Vita games being announced on a weekly basis).
about this new indie game argument...
some people say that the recent flow of A LOT of new indie games coming out for the Vita doesn't really "count" simply because indie games aren't AAA games. well i call bull$%#@ ... i consider games like Pushmo & Crashmo on the 3DS real/true games because of the simple fact that they're fun and provide me with a ton of enjoyment, they fit the definition of a video game both in terms of fun-factor AND in content. to me it doesn't matter if a game was released as a DD or by retail in a chain store... what matters is if i like the game and if i come back to it time and time again. besides, these indie games not only fit perfectly well on portables, but they also bring to us a sense of originality & uniqueness not even found in most AAA games or your average game that is made by the more common/larger gaming company.

MH3U actually does have a story. While it may not be an integrel part of the game like it Is in some RPGs, it is there. The demo demonstrated one aspect of the game. As for the controls, it's a personal preference, so i understand why you don't like them. Personally i feel like the controls make you think about your movements and when to attack more and plan out strategies. I think that's what sets it apart from other franchises.

IMO 3DS will be hard to beat just because of Animal Crossing New Leaf. It doesn't really have anything else I'm interested in though, aside from Luigi, and maybe Lego City if it's not just another horrible handheld lego game. I haven't played anything on 3DS since Scribblenauts Unlimited came out (can't even remember the last time I used it before that) so it's been a very poor 6 months or so for me.
Vita I'll be checking out lots of games. Soul Sacrifice, Dragon's Crown, Ys just to name a few. But I don't think any of them will have the longevity of Animal Crossing for me. I'm sure this year will be the same as last though, where I pick up a lot more titles for Vita.

Ya I can see how that would be a big problem.
So if Nintendo changed the name of the Wii - U, would they be pulling a U-Wii?
Great news everyone! :-)

He bashes the 3DS in topics made on the 3DS board?

I've noticed the major Ponies mostly steer clear of the 3DS board. People there are too happy and content with their purchase. Insecure Sony fanboys don't do well in that environment. They all flocked to the Wii U board to let off some of their buttfrustration steam caused by week after week of poor Vita sales.
I mainly want Rune factory 4 on 3DS and eventually pokemon X/Y.
on Vita i really want Ys celceta at this point.
proably gonna grab random stuff along the line thats not JRPG related though (i need to make sure to buy super niche things on release and other games il just grab when i find them for the right price)
