Technology Wise, Vita wins.
Games Wise, Nintendo 3DS wins.
Tiebreaker, Sales: Nintendo 3DS wins.
That's all, folks.

Neither doing it for me on either, sadly. Most disappointed in Sony though, because of the superior potential ( IMO ). I had such high hopes for Vita now I'm losing the faith.

Never thought this day would come

Unfortunately, I lost the faith in Sony with the Vita long ago. So much awesome that could have been had, but they shot themselves in the foot with their DRM (expensive proprietary memory cards) causes no one to buy the system. Which causes 3rd parties to stay away... Plus, they aren't doing much to put the rest of their PS1 and PSP offerings available for download.

I kind of want to buy the Vita TV still, but I would still have to purchase an overpriced memory card...

I got a Vita recently for a great deal: $120 for the system + Final Fantasy X and Ragnarok Odyssey. Having never owned a smartphone I'm blown away by what the Vita can do. Compared to the 3DS it's easily the better multimedia device. In terms of games, what can I say. I'm having a lot of fun playing RE1, SotN and MHFU. I'll play the 3DS for Nintendo exclusives like Pokemon but the Vita is my go-to for portable entertainment. Now if only memory cards weren't so expensive...

While I don't think the memory cards were that big of a deal, I still can't believe we don't have a PSN version of Crisis Core! Blows my mind.

Yeah they are severely lacking in the PSP catalog department. I really wanted Megaman Powered Up, and figured since Maverick Hunters was there, that Powered Up would come...

I'm still seriously considering a PS TV just to play the PSP catalog on the tv, but would rather they just had a PSP emulator on the PS3 since I already own that...

I was hoping that they'd at least announce some new colors/bundles of the PSV2000 for a western release but Sony totally ignored the PSV this E3.

They truly do not care about this console at all.

Okay let's put in the things that even if the Vita had, 3DS would still outsell it.

Let's say that the Vita does have backwards compatibility and that it can play PSP, PS1 and even PS2 games. Then let's say that they even made it so that its still affordable and has the best internet connection ever.

Guess what? it would make them lose more money than they are now.

Even right now, I'm pretty sure that Sony can have backwards compatibility updates and do that but the cost itself is too expensive and it has to be so that it should make a lot of money.

Lack of exclusives, new games and any attention is another problem the system has. what games are out for PS4 can easily be ported on Vita.

I can't think of any games besides Sly Cooper that I want for the system. I don't get why Sony is even interested in competing with Nintendo in handhelds because they clearly have dominated since Game and Watch and no other company came close to beating Nintendo at all in the handheld era not even Sony.

I'm not ranting here, but if Sony isn't even interested in most of the products that they made, then why are they even attempting to do it?

Well even if the Vita isn't a smash hit they were making money on each unit since launch, so certainly it couldn't be THAT bad for them. Yeah, Nintendo dominated the handheld market, but PSP took a good chunk away from, more than any other brand. I know I had no interest in DS but I loved my PSP... so obviously it worked for them once. PSP sales weren't too shabby either. They just didn't realize the market this time around.

Also with that attitude Sony might not have even entered the console market. Nintendo had been pretty dominant in the console scene too, but once Playstation came out it's been over all the most dominant brand.

The vita is plagued with ports and sequels right now. The only unique IP's are JRPG's that only the most hardcore of fans are going to care about. Danganronpa 2 I don't see anyone lining up for it.

3DS build quality sucks, Vita's is great.... at least in my experience.

I've owned 3 3DS originals, and one XL.

All 3 of the 3DS originals had loose hinges and rubbing screens.

3DS XL my left speaker blew.

Also, the volume on 3DS sucks! Guess I have to use headphones.

Vita, no problems with mine yet.

Both the XL and Vita are terrible in pockets, 3DS original was great though.

The volume using headphones on the 3DS is terribly low as well.
