3DS had better upcoming support, based on sales and upcoming games. And the franchises, IMO, appeal to a wider range of people, specifically the system exclusives (I.E. New Leaf and Pokemon are exclusives to only the 3DS, while PSABR is on PS3 as well as Vita).

I also find the XL fits better in my hands and is more a good amount comfortable than the Vita. The XL also offers more total viewing area between both screens.

Having 2 screens allows the 3DS to offer experiences you can't get anywhere else, not on phones/tablets/project shield or anything.

The Vita is considerably more expensive, especially with it's memory cards.

However, the Vita has some nice franchises on it as well. It also has 2 analog sticks, if you prefer those for gaming. The higher res screen makes viewing something like Netflix more enjoyable (although you can't set it down and watch, like a 3DS).

Because the Vita is noticeably stronger, it will be able to run larger and more taxing games in the future.

Both have advantages and while I prefer the 3DS (specially the XL), neither is objectively better than the other.

Oh, and 3DS haz MOAR gamez nd Vita haz teh beust graphiccz!

Both because I own both and cherish them equally.
Well, Courtney Gears didn't seem to mind.
88 Fingers Louie were a hardcore punk band. 88 Fingers Eddward was a nickname on Ed Edd'nEddy. Pretty cool reference.

Vita if you want lots of downloads and a solid online store/older game backlog. More expensive, but built well.

3DS for newer games, most likely going to be retail games. More coming out right now than Vita. Less expensive, but poor build (at least for the original model).

3DS. Far better library of games. Also, the Vita is going to crash and burn at some point. As is Sony likely. I'm not saying this to annoy Sony fans or anything. I want Sony as a company to survive, but the Vita is failing miserably. Sony has failed to overthrow Nintendo in the handheld market. Also, their TV's and computers are no longer selling. Sony also lost financially the first few years of the PS3 and only managed to turn it around the past two years or so.
