Yeah I'm posting this here instead of the 3DS board because I actually think the 3DS trolls will jump at the opportunity to give a comparison, since they spend so much time talking about the Vita.

Can someone please tell me what exactly a 3DS has going for it, particularly what it does better than a Vita?

This is think of when I think about a 3DS:
- children's games
- region lock
- clunky, square design
- single analog
- low battery life
- two screens with touch
- gimmicky 3D
- backwards compatability with DS... offset by region lock
- Mario, Zelda, Kid Icarus, none of which I care about
- doesn't come with a charger in some regions... LOL?
- can be bricked by firmware update
- stability issues (eg completely wiped save games on Virtue's Last Reward, and only allows ONE save)
- cheaper than a Vita
- selling considerably better than the Vita

So yeah, I don't understand what it does better than a Vita at all (other than being cheaper). Someone educate me. Someone give me a list of awesome games that make me go "MY GOD I WAS WRONG ALL ALONG!!!!!1111" Because all I see is a cheaper and inferior console that seems to be selling better due to having lots children's games.

3DS doesn't incite insecurity.

wow that's alot of reasons to hate the 3DS. The only thing I can say badly about is, is not enough Japanese type games come out in America, but that's true for all systems. I like both systems.

-amazing OLED
-fun console "like" experience

-cool 3D experience
-lots of gamecube era style games for my nostalgia of the "gamer's age".

Man this is almost as vicious as the Colecovision versus Atari 5200 debate of 1982. And then came 1983.....I'm still weeping over the carnage.

"Better" is purely subjective.

I am sure others will go over your list point by point, so I will just say this:

I have been having more fun with the games I have on my 3DS over the games I have on the Vita.

That is 99.98% of what I use each device for, games.

Neither is doing fantastic so far. And both have a small selection of great games.
My signature is better than yours.
