Dumb question on the 3ds board, but I'm looking for genuine opinions here.

#1DeGamer81Posted 10/7/2012 2:14:12 PM
First off, no console wars please. I like both Sony and Nintendo, so that's out of the way. What my question is, I need to replace my current 3DS(the original version), but I can't decide if I want to get a 3DS XL, or a Vita. I'm leaning towards the 3DSXL, but I could use some input. I've already done some research on google and youtube, but I'd rather hear from the people who's actually spent some real time with the systems. Like what are the pros and cons of each system? Just try to keep it civil. Thanks.

That is all nothing on the vita comes close but do note that I am a bias fanboy,

Why do you want to replace your 3DS?
You have 3ds games so thats better for you to get 3ds XL but the choice is yours.

Dont listen to other people,everyone has diffrent opinion.
Go to local store,ask to try both consoles to see how does it feel in your hands and take one that you like.

look at a list of vita games. if there a few that interest you, just get an xl. i'd rather get a newer version of a system i already own and have titles to play than buy a new system with few games.

Can only afford one. Not everyone can afford to shell out hundreds of dollars for these things all the time.

I need to replace mine because it's got a little wear and tear (like the scratches on the screen). Also there's a blacked out pixel staring me in the face that's been bugging the crap outta me.

A price drop for the Vita is expected in 2013 (supposedly)

If you've got the patience and determination, there should be some crazy Black Friday deals for the Vita and 3DS XL.

3DS. The Vita's support is embarrassing lately.

I kind of want a vital but can't find any games that would justify it.
