PS3 owners, would you rather have a Vita or a 3DS?

I have got a Vita right now and I like it, however I'm fearful that we will get very little support from developers and the system will die out within 5 years.

I did put my Vita and Memory Stick on Craigslist for $180 and found a buyer last night. I haven't sold it yet, but I'm stuck between the 3DS and Vita... Vita is the better console, but 3DS is selling greatly and will likely have developer support for sure. Opinions?

Nintendo handhelds rule the roost. Gimme the 3DS. BC will all DS games which is one of the greatest library of games in ages.

Nintendo blows.

Vita, most of the 3DS games I already own the original version of.

I own both and they really can't be compared. Both are great in their own way.

I'd rather have a Vita, but it needs to have a hell of a lot better support than it's getting.

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.

3DS.


I see no outstanding games for Vita. Only Western ones.


Proof that Sony was sad about this:

I think I bought the wrong console this gen.

Hmm, that's a toughie. On one hand, 1) I hate Nintendo's gimmick "3D" technology, 2) I think the 3DS hardware sucks, and 3) there are no 3DS games that I want.

On the other hand, I hate the way Sony is handling the Vita, namely 1) no internal storage, i.e. the memory card issue, 2) no full PSP/PSOne backwards compatibility, and 3) two different models (pointless), both pretty steep in price.

Truth be told, I will eventually get both, but only future software will be able to help me make up my mind. I was pretty late to the PSP/DS scenes as well, but today I have pretty substantial libraries for both and have gotten tons of use from them.

I like my 50" Screen.
