the thing is a 3ds is backwards compatible. seeing as you only played the psp, you missed out on quite a large amount of games.
my ds library was larger then both my wii/3ds/wiiu(no surprise there).
3ds is backwards compatible. had it not been i doubt id have picked one up.
i love my vita, dont get me wrong, but you missed out on an amount of games that were on no other system.
its a double edged sword:
if i want my psp games i have to double dip and even then the price of memory is enough to make people balk. yet theres been a reasonbly good stream of new games.
as for the 3ds, my entire ds library outweighs my 3ds library. nintendo titles rarely ever price drop. games from 2006 bought new today cost just as much as they did almost a decade ago. o.O? even so, just for the ds library/hardware is way cheaper/no fleecing of propreitary memory.
you could get a 3ds w/memory card and still have money left over for games, compared to a vita/memory...
another hard part is the eshop vs PSN. PSN has more savings deal offered then the eshop from my exp.
even so, you could rebuild your psp library only to find youve been locked out of some great titles... *cough* KH:BBS/PSP2 *cough*
take into account both library of games, find something you like, go with it.
When it comes to exclusives the 3DS have WAY more and they also have better quality and value than the Vita exclusive.
3D exclusives include (only the ones I know about): Phoenix Wright series Professor Layton series Pokemon series Zelda series Mario games Luigi games Super Smash Bros Monster Hunter series SMT series Animal Crossing New Leaf Tomodachi Life Persona Q (not released yet in US) many great JRPGs from Atlus Upcoming exclusive new IP from Nintendo (Codename S.T.E.A.M)
Vita also have many good games but most of them are not exclusives, Vita have many great indies that are not on 3DS like Terraria, Hotline Miami, Spelunky, Lone Survivor and upcoming Minecraft but all these can be played on other systems like PC or consoles.
Vita exclusives include (only the ones I know about): Persona 4 Golden Soul Sacrifice/Soul Sacrifice Delta KillZone Mercenary (I heard it's the best FPS on handhelds but never payed it myself) Little Big Planet Vita Sword Art Online (released two days ago) Toukiden: Age of Demons Danganronpa series Upcoming exclusive from Sony (Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines)
Both Vita and 3DS are VERY different from each others, as someone who owns both I even feel weird when switching to one after spending few weeks with the other. It's great having both because of the different experience each can provide. Vita haters will tell you that Vita has no games, well they're liars...there are many games 3DS haters will tell that 3DS is for kids, they're also liars...I'm 23 year old gamer and had a blast with Nintendo 3D games.
Spend some time checking the games for each console and never pay attention to fanboys of either side. --- PSN id: KillZoneAI 3DS FC: 4957-4496-9365 I Pokemon X IGN: Dina
Which one is better for sports games? I feel like getting the Borderlands 2 bundle is so difficult since it offers the most value for $200. --- Current Devices: Galaxy S5, Retina iPad Mini, and Xbox One.
Dunno most 3DS games don't excite me. I'm not interested in playing yet another Mario/Luigi game. VITA has so many more games that I want to play. I have both consoels and 3DS is only used for MH :/ --- Steam ID: Glockass1 http://i.imgur.com/qsRb7.png http://i.imgur.com/PgA0Rlc.gif
