With all these responses all I got other than a throwaway "I enjoy 3DS games more" comment was raging.
Didn't they just mention that the 3DS has far more games? There's more, but that really is all you need. No matter how amazing a console may be, it's nothing if it doesn't have games.
And on that note, why are you asking about how the 3DS is "better"? Everyone knows that the Vita has better specs, but specs aren't important, especially on a handheld. The difference between the Vita and the 3DS is that the Vita is a portable PS3 while the 3DS is it's own unique experience. The reason that the 3DS sells more than the Vita is (well besides the amount of games the 3DS has compared to the Vita) it has it's own style to it while the Vita aims for a very small demographic: people who want a portable PS3 experience (and a few people that are big fans of Persona and the like.)
-3DS is backwards compatible with DS. And DS has one of the largest current libraries of games period.
Thanks Dartpaw86, I wasn't aware that the backwards compatability of the 3DS wasn't region locked and went back so far. I admit that's a fairly solid point for the 3DS.
I don't necessarily agree that 3D is worth anything but I'll begrudgingly offer that it is *something* that the Vita doesn't have.
Also the 3DS is obviously cheaper but I already mentioned that.
Regarding the games, can someone tell me what games are actually worthwhile? I was honestly looking into buying a 3DS but the region lock and general lack of worthwhile 3DS games (since I don't care particularly for Mario, Zelda) turned me off pretty hard.
How is the PS Vita powerful?
I mean, I see no games that has full console qualities.

I was asking how it was better because I was thinking of getting one but my initial research showed that desptie the hype its pretty much worse than a Vita (which I already have) in every way. Maybe I'm unfamiliar with the best 3DS games since they all looked extremely childish and uninteresting on face value, but then thats my question. I already have a gaming collection on PSP/Vita so I was trying to get an idea of what exactly a 3DS could offer me that I don't already have.

Then why didn't you ask this on the 3ds board?

I LOVE MONSTER HUNTER!!
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.
- Games, period
- Analog stick that doesn't feel cheaply-implemented
- Two screens with touch
- Optional 3D
- Backwards compatibility with DS software
- (Generally) good first-party games
- Chargers in all regions, sans the XL model in a few places
- Same chance of being bricked as any other updatable system
- Good stability
- Lower price than the competition
- Better sales, meaning more game releases
Now Playing - Assassin's Creed III (360), Assassin's Creed (360), Call of Duty: Black Ops II (360)
3ds has childish games? if you truly believe that, tell me what a childish game is... in all reality, im sure every game is childish, and if not, then the only true childish games are "educational" games, which we can all agree arent true games... and also all games are educational in their own way.... so that goes right back to all games being childish...
also, id like to point out, i got my 3ds yesterday, because i saw no games that made me say "i want that now" and my ds worked fine.... till i dropped it and the top screen snapped off... so im not just trying to defend the 3ds, im pointing out that youre wrong...
you can be anyone on the internet, why do you choose to be stupid?
You forgot 3rd party support TC
Of course, if being better than your own photocopies excused bad behavior, your ass wouldn't have gotten fired after last year's holiday party.
