My Dad just got his taxes and he's letting me choose from either a Playstation 3 or PSVita.

I only have a DSi and 3DS at the moment (never been much of a gamer aside from Pokemon and Dragon Quest).

So should I purchase a PS3 so I can finally get into console gaming or get the newer Vita for titles like FFX and Type-0?

If you're more casual than anything I'd say go with the vita because it will ave more features than a ps3 like AR games and stuff

PS3. BTW, FFX is also coming to PS3 in full HD.

I'd go with ps3 just because you already have a handheld and the games will be cheaper since alot of the good ones are several years old

PS3, no contest. It already has a well-established back catalogue.

Do you want portability or not? To me that is what it comes down to.

If you don't want to be tethered to your TV you should get a Vita. You are already familiar with portable gaming too. Being forced to sit in the same spot every time you want to play a game or having to move the console around sucks.

I only use my PS3 for movies.

PS3 easily. PS3 has loads of great games released already, while none of the Vita launch titles look that interesting to me.

PS3 has a larger library. This is a no brainer.
So many games, so little time...
Unfortunately most portable/HD remakes suffer "Emperor's New Clothes" syndrome. Nostalgia ftw.
