It looks a little small compared to the PSP, but to those that have is it? Any issues with games such as Blazblue & MvC? I ask because the dpad on the 3DS was one of the main reasons I sold mine. It was tiny, but it just felt so cheap and spongy. I don't mind a small dpad as long as it works fine for fighters...because I refuse to play MvC etc with an analog stick.

I have read the same. They like it more than the PSP pad.

Its smaller than the psp dpad. But its very responsive and a joy to use.

Its much easier to use than the PSP's Dpad.

You can feel it very solidly click down when you press it, which I Find to be very nice.

Does the left analog stick ever get in the way? I am getting Blazblue and probably UMVC3 later on and really hope the DPad is solid.

I absolutely LOVE the new d-pad on the Vita. I've found it extremely good for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Has a nice feel to it and rolls around nicely. I'm glad they tweaked it for the Vita.

The D-pad is really great this time around. I mainly play fighting games on consoles (with a joystick) and I can actually pull off alot of combos in UMvC3 on the Vita since I got it a few days ago. I can definitely say the Vita has my favorite D-pad ever, even over the PS3's one.
