Still worth buying?

I would say no.

Most of it's best games can also be found on the PS3 (ans most look better there), it's exclusives are nothing to write home about, and the future of the system is looking pretty bleak overall.

If you are constantly busy, travel a lot or ABSOLUTELY need a portable system then I would say...you're better off buying a 3DS.

I own both systems, and I honestly can't find any reason to choose the Vita over the 3DS.


If you absolutely need a portable system you get a Vita for the best experiences. Especially if you aren't playing your PS3 much.

Most people don't need it. They probably sure as hell would love the luxury of it though.

3DS is good if you REALLY want mario or some psp level jrpgs imho.


cause theres more to 3ds than just mario games.

although some games are ported from PS3, but they are portable, Try some demo first, youtube is your friend, you can view gameplay videos of games that caught your attention. Since you've preordered PS4, might as well get the PS+, it will add more value if you own a Vita, coz those free games they give every month consist of PS3, Vita, Minis & PSP games.

As a launch day owner and owner of almost every notable release for the vita, I'd say no. Buy a ps3 or ps4, the games on vita are all mediocre.


Despite occasional posts not being as obvious trolls, you'd be better off ignoring everything this guy says in these boards TC, (everyone here would).

But there is no reason to own a Vita over a 3DS like the person I quoted says? Nice to see so many 3DS fans in this board doing damage control.

I have don't have plus, but I will buy it, as I'm going to need it for ps4. Should I buy the ps+ bundle for 300, refurb for 210 or new for 250? If I buy new, is there any reason not to get the black ops bundle? I have heard the game sucks, but its the same price and I can at least trade it in for some credit to put towards other games.

Def go for the BO bundle. It's a much better value. Also search around eBay for deals and auctions, if you're lucky, you can find one crazy cheap. I got mine in good condition, charger, carrying case, and Mortal Kombat with case for 140$ w/ free shipping. It was the 3G model too.

And it definitely shouldn't be about spending $250 + insanely gougey memory card prices to play ports of old indie and cell phone games.

Yeah, mangy is crazy bitter over the 3DS's strong library. You can feel it in many of his posts. Radiating.


I agree the 3DS has good games, but Compass just sticks around and complains about the Vita's library.


This. Same exact "ports and indies" argument every time. One trick pony.

It's less an argument, more the stating of unfortunate reality. I apologize if this causes you to hyperventilate. It was not my intention.

Yet again mixing up opinion and fact.

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.
