At least with PSP vita you get a device brimmed to the top with features and a company that is fully behind their product. Nintendo on the other hand believes their product cannot go against the competition, and refuse to fully support it. Nintendo keeps putting off features and games till tomorrow, but how are they suppose to thrive today? I would not buy the 3ds, at least until another price drop when the psp vita comes out.

why do people talk as if they're quoting the marketing materials when they talk about the vita.... "brimmed to the top with features" wtf?

how about elaborating instead of providing lip service? if you're talking about music player, videoplayer, internet brower, online store, netflix. 3DS has all of that.

The price was the only thing going for it? Really? I mean It's launch titles blow away anything the 3DS has. It has an actual online system. Way better multimedia functions. And the biggest thing it has is hype.

except the 3DS had probably 10 times the hype leading up to release and is probably considered the most hyped, most anticipated handheld in history and was even the clear winner of E3 in 2010. E3 2011 was much more fractured people said that Wii-U was the big news while others said vita's price and now that vita's price is less significant it actually hurts the hype of vita.

if the 3DS did relatively poorly with that kind of hype vita now with its even more diminished mindshare is in big trouble of becoming the next ngage.


And that hype is really what saved the 3DS. Sony will have a much stronger start with the Vita compared to the PSP. I know a ton of people that said they will now be getting a Vita over a 3DS after E3. Considering the PSP sold over 70 million and the Vita will pretty much guaranteed sell better than it, it will be a real competitor. I'm not saying the 3DS is gonna flop but this time Sony will actually give Nintendo a run for it's money.

and 3ds also has a much better interface, vita's home page looks like it was designed by geocities.

I see the Vita interface and I see an interface that is large and easy to find things. The design implies that organization will be easier than with the 3DS, as well.

heres the problem the market is much more different than when the DS and PSP were battling it out, there are now tablets, gaming capable phones, and even their predecessors (ds and psp themselves) already clogging the market. so the vita has basically has nothing left. the 3DS and Vita are both going to do worse than their predecessor because the market has changed and is more crowded.

How does it imply that organization would be easier than the 3DS? With the 3DS you can drag and drop applications and games wherever you want and have them displayed in different ways.

Because the Vita doesn't have a bunch of cramped icons. Nintendo doesn't exactly have a good history of organizational skills; lest we not forget the dreaded SD Card menu on Wii.

The holiday shopping season will show who's on top, I guess. Even if $250 proves not to be a sticking point in their strategy, Sony's still got to produce enough units to meet demand. Something they've only been good at when demand is low.
