I want both the PS Vita and the 3DS to be successful for many years to come, but I'd be lying if I said PS Vita's launch isn't going to steal the spotlight of an already struggling 3DS from both gamers and developers.

The 3DS remains a hard sell still, and I believe it will become an even harder sell when the PS Vita is on the market. Which is a competing product that can be purchased for the same price as the 3DS, and frankly does a ton more with better graphics and better online

If it was just Sony releasing the PS Vita with a launch line-up that was nothing special, I'd think the 3DS was in the clear for now. But the PS Vita is launching with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Uncharted is one of the biggest series on PS3 and of this generation of gaming. Along with a few other promising exclusives like Gravity Daze, Wipeout 2048, and possibly LittleBigPlanet Vita.

I just hope the 3DS isn't knocked down too hard and doesn't struggle getting back up when the PS Vita arrives

By the time the Vita is released, multiple good 3DS titles will be out.
Graphics aren't everything, and in my opinion the 3D on the 3DS makes up for it. The 3DS will do fine, as well as the Vita.

I think that both systems will actually have a close fight with each other this time. Nintendo resorted to ripping off gamers with the over-pricing (my opinion) of the 3DS, the lack of sure fire games (I don't buy the BS excuse the fanboys make that Nintendo just wanted 3rd parties to have a chance to sell games), and Sony seems to be learning from their PSP missteps. All I say is "Game on"!

I'm gonna hold off on the Vita, nothing about it excites me much. Except maybe Reality Fighters, that looks awesome!
The 3DS I knew would have lots of games I wanted in a short time period, so I got it soon after release, though sooner than intended due to my DSi dying. After I heard good things about most of the launch titles, I wanted to buy more, but unfortunately don'y have the money!

This is the same hoo~ha we heard when the DS and PSP were launch and they had a much closer launch time compared with one another. There's nothing to be terrified of. How long of some of you guys been gaming? 2-3 years?

I want a PS Vita, and the day it launches I will be happy as a Vita owner tbqh.

Even happier if FF Type-0 is released before/on the same day and is on the PSN.

(if they bring Type-0 over in the first place...)

The 3DS will already have some AAA titles out by than. I don't see any thunder being stolen.
I can't wait for Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D, Paper Mario 3D, Luigi's Mansion 2,
Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kirby Mass Attack, Kirby Wii, and Skyward Sword!
