The PSP is the most uncomfortable thing I've ever held (inb4dirtyjoke), why in gods name would I want to use the Vita over a DS3?

Besides the fact that the Wii U will have many exclusive first party games and is a new console with more capabilities than the current generation consoles.

But yes pretty much.

Maybe now we’ll see the interconnectivity/interaction between the Vita and PS3 that was strongly eluded to supposed to happen between the PSP and the PS3. Cool stuff. Another incentive for a PS3 owner to pick up a Vita.

Have to make myself remember it's something that I used to know

So considering the PSP Vita was announced before the Wii U, will all the clowns who said Sony copied Nintendo this gen, spend next gen declaring that Sony are the copied ones this time?

Now if only they said there was some way to plug your Vita into your PS3 and play your games on a real TV, or if they said you could hook in a controller, or something.

I hate the way you're stuck with whatever broken/lousy stick handhelds have, I hate crouching over little screens, etc. I keep meaning to get into the PSP again but I just don't see it happening.

But then the new PS and Xbox will be out soon after which will have even better capabilities.

So PS3+Vita make Wii U obsolete already, poor Nintendo
