Pick the one that has the most games you're interested in playing. --- "I wanted another ad where LeBron says "Like a good neighbor State Farm is there, with a clutch gene!" - Skip Bayless Xbox GT: Loyal Catalyst
I asked myself this same question but went with a 3DS XL. What handheld has more games that interest you? I must say the 3DS library is insanely awesome and 2013 is just flooded with amazing titles coming out for the 3DS. I'm not sure about whats on the horizon for Vita as I don't own one. I know Vita is a beautiful handheld with amazing capabilities. But think about it, if you want incredible beautiful graphics, why not play your PC, ps3, or xbox 360. If you want innovation and fun and 3D, and touchscreen and just a new gaming experience (think super mario land 3d) go 3ds.
I'd recommend the 3DS XL w/ these games
Kid Icarus Uprising Fire Emblem Awakening Super Mario 3D Land Zelda Ocarina of Time Kingdrom Hearts Dream Drop Distance Mario Kart 7 Resident Evil Revelations Code of Princess Paper Mario & NSMB 2 Not to mention all the great DS games like pokemon, TWENY, 999 that you havent played yet.
The 3DS has a lot of games on the horizon and already available that look/are awesome so be sure and take that into account before buying a Vita. --- I'm a 10+ year GameFaqs lurker. Friend Code: 3668-7314-6427.
The Vita is supposedly getting a new model soon, that might be announced at the PlayStation event on the 20th. I'd wait and see what that's all about first. --- [Exit, pursued by a bear.] GT: LafayetteV
Just go on here it may take a bit but look up the systems you want to compare them with and see which system has the games that you enjoy the most (exclusive speaking). --- Own a Vita, your a troll, own a 3ds, your a fanboy, own an IOS device, you have no opinion...tis the curse on these boards.
No offense to Vita owner (I am a sony lover) and well...if your interested in what the 3ds has to offer I can guarantee it will hold your interest. --- Own a Vita, your a troll, own a 3ds, your a fanboy, own an IOS device, you have no opinion...tis the curse on these boards.
