Default Official PSV vs 3DS Thread: Troll Graveyard

PSV vs 3DS discussions will now be allowed; however, please do not make threads whose sole purpose is simply to compare the two systems (which includes features, software, etc.) Such discussion belongs in this thread. Certain topics may naturally lend to comparisons of both handhelds- these are acceptable as long as they remain relevant to the original topic of the thread.

Most importantly: Unsupported claims or arguments are considered troll posts. If you make statements such as "The 3DS is garbage" or "PSV sux!11!", you will receive a severe infraction.

Post away!

Soft buttons are better, I hate those damn clicky buttons; although my PSP's buttons are somewhat clicky.

Vita game cases generally have nothing in them. Uncharted has nothing, ModNation Racers has nothing, and Wipeout 2048 only has an "Online Pass" flyer.

3DS cases always have something inside.

The bottom line? Either Sony is digging their own graves by taking a piss on the best part of buying a game at retail (looking through the stuff that's inside), or Nintendo be doomed because all those extra costs of inserting useless fliers inside their game cases will eat into their profits.

I prefer soft buttons too. And what PSP version did you have? Cuz my PSP2000 buttons were just as soft as my DS Lite buttons.

I've got a PSP3000, the L and R buttons are the clickiest but the otherse are too; my DS Lite's buttons are definitely softer.

Both are awesome handhelds that all gamers should enjoy.

I have a certain member in mind who I'm sure will jump at the change to create troll 3DS > Vita threads, assuming he hasn't been banned yet.

THE VITA HAS THINGS AND THE 3DS ALSO HAS THINGS SO THE 3DS IS BETTAR.

I was just kidding anyway, it's the garbage thread after all. But no hopefully the Vita does well because I get mine tomorrow so it's not in my interest at all to see it fail.

I was wrong! D:

Anyway, do you guys think that the Vita will also have to get a price drop like the 3DS? I just don't know if they could drop it any lower. 250 is pretty low compared to what most of use expected at first, remember?

Well, they could cut the price of the Vita. I think the price of the parts of the 3G Vita is $159, and the 3DS is $103. Obviously there are a lot of added costs on top of that, but the fact is that they have a little more room to breathe than many people believe -- even though their finances are really bad right now so a price drop would be disastrous for Sony in the short term.

But do I think the Vita will also get a price drop? In my opinion, not until the fall. The fact is when the 3DS got its price drop, it had games to drive this new momentum. We knew Pokemon, Mario Land and Mario Kart were coming soon (Pokemon was actually already out in Japan if I remember correctly).

For the Vita, in the West, I don't see a price drop happening until a little closer to the release of Call of Duty and other big end-of-the-year games.

And even then, first of all, I don't think they will cut the price to $170 but to $200, and Sony will want to be extremely careful with a price drop because pulling that stunt again exactly a year after Nintendo with the 3DS? Consumers, right now, think the 3DS price drop was an accident, something out of the ordinary. The last thing Sony would want is to make consumers feel like it would be better for them to just hold off on purchasing a new console or a new handheld because there's going to be a price drop anyway if the sales aren't high enough.

Realistically, my bet is the Vita won't get a price drop until October.

One thing they might attempt however to drop the price sooner without really looking like they dropped the price, is just releasing bundles. A WiFi bundle with a PS Vita, a game and an 8GB card for $250 for example.

1 has a capacitive screen in 2012, the other is stuck in 2004.
1 2 analog sticks out of the box, the other has 1 slide pad that is in no way suited for Ace Combat much less any other game, second slide pad sold separately.
1 has all Ys games save for 5 & origins, the other has a mediocre port of of 1/2 from an build predating "Ys eternal"
Both have a slowdown heavy remake of Ace Combat 2 that only utilizes 1 joystick
1 has a good reason for the slowdown (its a PSP game not a PSV game)
1 has a lagless port of Blazblue with online play and Cross platform saves, the other has a port of street fighter that is 2 revisions obsolete.

1 votes Republican and kisses babies in Rallies, the other votes Democrat and kisses babies in basements

I have them both. One observation I would like to make. Mario Kart 7> Modnation. It has great online which singlehandedly wipes the floor with modnation. Also the karting feels tighter, and better.

1 of them is the fastest selling handheld.

1 of them is the fastest selling handheld with dual analogue inbuilt.

Agreed. I really liked the PS3 version and think this could have been way better than Mario kart (IMO the karting is better in ModNation) if only it had online... I should have looked that up before buying it. :P but that's like the whole point of the game >_>

Anyways, I got my vita at midnight as well as ultimate marvel vs Capcom 3 and uncharted. Uncharted is even more boring than the console games but MvC is insanely fun. So yeah. I'm enjoying it (vita) even though I only have one game that I like. xD way better than the 3DS...

Any common hardware problems so far? I might get one next month, or in a couple months. I'll go back to my plan of waiting for a while if there are some early hardware faults.

I'm only a 1/3 way through but I already like it more than Drake's Fortune just because the firefights don't bore me.

I hate that crap too! Clicky buttons and D-pads piss me off. Seriously, these need to be banned. I hope that whatever 3DS redesign comes out utilizes a D-pad and buttons like the ones on the DS Lite (not the DSi, which is like a hybrid between the DS and DS Lite).

Drake's Fortune is my favorite Uncharted (haven't played 3 yet). A lot of people think 2 is superior, and graphically it is, but I like the jungle setting and set pieces of the first game more. Only problem was the horrible screen tearing.

From what I played at Gamestop, Golden Abyss looks worse (graphically) than the first Uncharted, except for one area: screen tearing. DF did it a lot, didn't notice any in GA.

That's fine. I'm just saying the gunfights are more enjoyable in GA (at least for me).

Ugh, can't disagree more. Mushy D-pads, like on the DSlite, lead to lots of problems when dealing with precision. If you have to enter a combo of directionals using the DSlite's pad... forget about it. The original DS clicky D-pads were much better

It doesn't matter though. With the current 3DS design, the D-pad is little more than extra buttons. You can't control a character with it placed where it is.

EDIT: Thanks, nasic. I'll see if this becomes a bigger problem in the coming weeks.

No, if you check the vita forums it's something people are experiencing using different applications of the system.
Nothing a reboot doesn't sort out apparently, so not too big a deal, but hopefully something that gets sorted.

Also, I don't like to be 'that' person, but this is a thread for comparing vita to 3DS, there is a general vita discussion thread where you will probably get better answers to your questions.

Well honestly... I've only played it for about 30 minutes. I've mostly been playing MvC. But from what I played so far, I'm not liking it. Mainly due to the unnecessary gameplay they put in just to make use of the touch screen and rear touch pad. Rotating and cleaning suff isn't fun. Nor is taking pictures or swiping across the screen to do simple non touch screen required things.

Yeah, I'm sure it gets better though

Actually if we're thinking about the same place, it kinda makes more sense than in a PSP. Just sayin'...

I just ate a banana thanks to this thread. It made me crave one.

No seaman on my banana.


O and yeah..on topic:

I have both the Vita and the 3DS, so far my first impressions of the Vita have been far better than the 3DS's. It's too early to tell which one will end up being my favorite handheld though, they both have their merits.

The 3DS circle pad is pretty awesome... I love it even more now than I did the first time I tried it, and I loved it from the start. I didn't experience the same "love-at-first-sight" with the Vita sticks. What I did find however was that the sticks, d-pad and buttons were all better than the PSP's except for the shoulder buttons.

I liked the 3DS's circle pad as well, I wonder what the Vita would be like with two circle pads in place of the two sticks.

Well, I've had my Vita for a day now. I have three complaints.

1: The sticks aren't really comfortable and feel fragile. I'm afraid to use them! Also, the placement of the right stick right below the "X" button is an inconvenience for me. I have big hands, so these problems bother me.

2: Having to sign into the Playstation Network and then connecting to the Internet before you play a game online is ridiculous. Why can't it just already be signed on?

3: Now this is my biggest complaint. I got my Vita shipped from Amazon, and they forgot to include the other half to my AC Adapter. So while I'm waiting for it to be sent, I have to charge it through USB. I don't like having to completely shut off the Vita in order to charge it this way. It's so damn annoying and inconvenient, ugh.

Aside from that, the Vita is amazing and I'm enjoying it. Those issues are small compared to the fun I'm having on this beautiful little device.

I have a friend who imported the vita from Japan.But because of how long shipping took,it came here around the launch date of Vita itself.So i played it and the most uncomfortable thing on the system is analogs.To me,they're horrible.But that's just me.Backtouchscreen also seems retarted to me but i guess you can find a way to make it useful.
For me the problem of Vita is there isn't many games that i care about.Sure i care about some games like Super Stardust Delta,Persona 4G,Metal Gear Solid Collection,Ninja Gaiden Sigma,Mortal Kombat and some other stuff.But the problem is i can play all these games on different consoles rather than on Vita,and vita costs MUCH more than a PS3.

But I see your point about having the same games as the home consoles.

It looks like there are roughly 2 camps of portable gamers:
- people who expect handheld games to be completely different from console games
- people who want handheld games to give an almost console-like experience

The Vita obviously targets the second group much more than the first. For me, personally, handheld games should be as console-like as possible. I don't really care for watered-down/bite-sized games. As long as I can put a handheld in sleep-mode at any moment I don't see a reason any more why handheld games need to be designed around short bursts of playtime (I have a mobile phone for those type of situations).

Further I expect the sticks on the Vita to become the biggest polarizer of the device. They really grew on me during the short time I spent with the system and they felt pleasant and accurate to me. But I can totally see how people with big hands may dislike them.

Well... at least Sony had the intelligence to put 2 of them on the device *before* taking the Vita into production.

**** that, the Vita has amazing hardware and the graphics it produces can be gorgeous. It'd be a waste to provide us with watered down games that can only be played for short bursts of time. I want console-like experiences on the go!

Oh, as for the sticks, I hope they grow on me too. They're not my biggest complaint, it's the USB charging dilemma that really bothers me. Everything else I'll get used to eventually.

I think the adjustments to handheld gaming should be minor. The games should start quickly, the menus should be streamlined, and overall just not make people wait for anything, or as little as possible.

In terms of the games themselves, I don't think anyone really argues that handheld games shouldn't provide a console-like experience, I think people just don't want the exact same games. I'm very happy to see an original Uncharted and Wipeout on the Vita. I wouldn't be glad to see a port of a previous Uncharted game and a port of Wipeout HD instead. There's console-like and console ports.

Oh I agree. I'm just mirroring what I hear around here. Apparently there still are many people who don't want their handhelds to be like a little console, even though hardware limitations are no longer a factor.

I fall into both camps, I would like a bit of each, and I think both handheld's can deliver that. In the past I have bought a much higher proportion of console to handheld games, but with the 3DS and Vita I can see that changing. However it will be the short burst games such as sports and driving sims that I will be more inclined to buy on handheld now, as I think their better suited. More indepth games I will only likely get on handhelds if they're not available on home consoles.

The next call of duty I will be getting for neither 3DS or Vita, I will get it on WiiU or PS3. I'm surprised to see so many people on other sites claiming this will be the game that 'saves' the Vita. It will no doubt sell well to installed owners when it's released, but unless it's a stand alone game, I doubt it will be a great system seller.

I know what you mean, I have heard some people say how they want games that offer short 'bursts' of entertainment like that which SM3DL offered; Buramu knows what I'm talking about that Mario lover.

With the standby features of handhelds these days there's no real need to design games differently just because they are on a handheld system. If I'm playing God of War on my PSP or Dillon's Rolling Western on my 3DS while I'm on the train and it's my stop I can just put them on standby and resume the game later; where's the need to design the game differently when you can do that?

The USB cord is actually the other half of your AC adapter.

Well,in here a PS3 costs around 400TL which is around $230 but Vita costs around 1000TL which is around $570.

Both will get a Call of Duty game. Sony fanboys will claim that CoD will "save" the PSV while Nintendo fanboys will bash it because they hate FPSs.

Their arguments will be pointless because neither the PSV or 3DS versions of the game will come close to the numbers that the PS3 and Xbox360 versions will sell.

With visuals and possibilities on handhelds becoming what they are, you can't really say that for sure. They probably won't, but I wouldn't completely write anything off like that.

Hopefully I don't sound fanboyish here...but...VITA SUUUUCKS 3DS GONNA OWNZERATE

/endfanboysarcasm

Now for something more intelligent. Hopefully. ...I'll try. xP

I have tried the Vita, and I do own the 3DS. First, my impressions about the Vita.

The screen was an absolute lovely size, that I can agree on. The graphics looked nice and crisp.

The analog sticks were a bit small, and didn't take as much getting used to as I thought. Although they definitely felt like they should be clickable...I felt myself trying to click them more than once. (Not a problem with the system, just how the sticks felt)

The X/Square/Triangle/O buttons felt fine, didn't really have a problem with those...although the L/R buttons did feel kinda weird.

The rear touch...is still meh. I don't see a huge game-changing benefit from this, but we'll have to see.

Now for the demos I tried...

Uncharted: Golden Abyss does, in fact, look very good in the graphics department.. Comparable to Drakes Fortune at least. The only gripe I have with the game, is that some of the gameplay mechanics felt like they were putting it on the iPad, and then the Vita game along (AKA, Swipe the screen to punch/tap to climb) and quite honestly, tapping to climb doesn't work as well as it should. Also, the fire effects (that I saw) in the Uncharted: GA demo looked like they were ripped from an N64 cart. Now, those may or may not be in the final version, this I don't know.

Little Deviants is Little Deviants. Would've been more suited as a $10 downloadable title, and not a $30 release game.

Gravity Rush was probably the most impressive game I played. The graphical style was very interesting to watch, and the gameplay was very good, albeit a tad hard to control. None of the other demos really interested me, and I had to go, so I didn't really bother trying anything else out. Maybe I'll try Escape Plan next time.

Now the thing is, I do not hate the Vita. I found it to be a very cool system, but there aren't any games that scream at me "GOTTA HAVE IT".

The general rule that I normally follow is the system cost (For the Vita it's about $270 for Wi-Fi + 4 Gig Card) should equal the total price of the games you want. So far, there's only about 3 games that I'm fully interested in. Uncharted, Touch My Katamari (still think that name sounds stupid), and Gravity Rush.

As compared to the 3DS, where I knew there were at least 10 games that I wanted for it (That were announced at the time) and I genuinely enjoy those series.

With the 3DS, I find the slide pad to be just as good as an analog stick, and although the exclusion of a second circle pad (not counting the CPP here) is disappointing, it isn't 100% necessary. Resident Evil: Revelations proved that quite well. Will I buy a CPP? If Monster Hunter gets localized, and it has online, 100% yes.

The buttons on the 3DS are generally very nice to use. I feel that they're the right mix of mushy/clicky.

The D-Pad...is awkwardly placed. I can see why they decided to keep it in the final systems design, but it just feels odd.

The graphics on the 3DS are definitely better than the Wii, and quite honestly I think RE:R is still comparable (not exactly like one, but the graphics are comparable) to a PS3 title.

That being said...I do not think the Vita will be overthrowing the 3DS anytime soon. There simply isn't many "gotta have it" killer apps for the Vita, like an exclusive Monster Hunter, or Resident Evil. Now hopefully, the Vita does sell well, because it does deserve success and it is a good system, and competition means better games (generally). But unless something drastically changes...doesn't look good. :/

tl;dr: Both systems have their strengths and disadvantages, play what you want, don't bash others for wanting it, and just have fun with whatever you choose.

The 3DS and PSV CoDs will probably sell better than previous handheld iterations but I have no reason to believe that their sales numbers will reach that of the console versions of the game.

Anything is possible, but the thought of a handheld CoD selling into the multi-millions is ludicrous to me.

I'm sure Vita's CoD will be leagues better than 3DS's, just judging off Nintendos track record with CoD games. From what it sounds like they are taking the Vita version more serious because they feel its more suited for it ( and everyone has dual analogs ). I have to agree with that, and I hope it is a good version of it.

Anyway I don't see many categories the 3DS wins in for me against Vita, but does it matter if there are millions of people who grew up on Nintendo that flock back to them because of nostalgia?

I have both and all, but man when I'm playing the Vita its more like "wow"... and the 3DS was more like "cool" for the 3D effect. If you can't play with the 3D effect on for reasons like eye strain, only the most dedicated of Nintendo fans could justify the price IMO. So far Resident Evil is the only game I like that doesn't have Zelda in the title.

I am still keeping mine now I that I have my Vita, but the poor thing won't see much use from me until the new Zelda games. I've looked over the line up.. not impressed. Remember that's just because of my tastes, but I would say there are a lot of people who like the more console / pc like gaming experiences that would see from my pov.

Anyway I'm going to try not to post in this thread just because I probably won't be agreed with here, and I'll just be flamed to death.

You seriously think Nintendo handhelds sell well because of "nostalgia"?

Obviously that's not entirely it, but I do think it plays a big role.

Possibly for some, but the games are actually good enough for people to still shell out the money for. It doesn't really matter either way, if someone has fun with whatever game for whatever reason, then they play it. Do I have nostalgia for Mario Kart? Hell yes I do, but I still personally have a lot fun with it now, just playing online and in communities. I also love revelaitons, a completely different game, and for different reasons. Plus I also know the high probability of a new Metroid coming at some point, which becomes an automatic for me.

I have no doubts in Nintendo's ability to make good first party games, but I would say that shouldn't be enough to sell consoles with such a track record of poor 3rd party. I guess what I'm saying is are Nintendo's first party games really enough to justify the systems prices when they have rarely got anything worth while for 3rd party games?

Every time I look at a Nintendo system its the same thing for me, good first party games ( not good enough to buy the system for me personally usually ), but like 5 games at most that are awesome 3rd party games. I don't think that is worth purchasing personally. I only bought the 3DS breaking my rule because I get DS's line up plus 3DS's line up.... 2 systems in one at least gives me double the first party and 3rd party.

Well, that's why it's all personal. I'd say (now) $169.99 is very reasonable for what the future line-up is and what we have at this point. Revelations proves what it's capable of, and it's up to devs to make games at that level now.

I still don't know where the whole "Nintendo handhelds have poor 3rd party support" comes from because unlike consoles Nintendo handhelds have never been short of good third party support.

Just look at any list of "Best DS Games" on the average gaming site and you're bound to find plenty of third party games.

Yea, and I'd go as far as saying that first party was a weakness for the ds, imo. What? You had NSMB, two mario rpg's, hunters, two shoddy zelda games, and a couple others. Ok, and pokemon, a given on every Nintendo handheld.

If you like Japanese(-style) games that is. The DS was quite short on decent quality third party FPS/TPS shooters, racing games, sports games, adventure games, etc.: the typical genres that appeal to more western gaming tastes.

One uses sd cards, the other has dedicated memory sticks.

On the same subject, I stumbled upon an intersting article about the vita, and I wanted to know what you think about it: Don't Even Bother With a 4GB Vita Card | PlayStation LifeStyle

As long as I can put a handheld in sleep-mode at any moment I don't see a reason any more why handheld games need to be designed around short bursts of playtime (I have a mobile phone for those type of situations).
I think both handhelds will cater to both groups. We have already seen console-like games on the 3DS, with many more on the way.

It doesn't matter though. With the current 3DS design, the D-pad is little more than extra buttons. You can't control a character with it placed where it is.

EDIT: Thanks, nasic. I'll see if this becomes a bigger problem in the coming weeks.
I don't know how you manage to have any precision with those D-Pads because I can't do it. D-pads, like the one on the DS Lite, were the norm for the longest time. Every system had them. The first time that a clicky D-Pad appeared was on the GBA SP, and that's one reason I wouldn't buy one.

If I try to play my copy of Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival on a DS, I absolutely cannot do it. I cannot pull off a fireball or a dragon punch to save my life, and that's why I hate those D-Pads. D-Pads should be smooth so that you can do half-circle/quarter-circle movements easily.

I don't know if I've complained to Nintendo about it yet, but I really should.

Complaining to them about the type of d-pad isn't going to do anything.

I agree that the 3DS's dpad is terrible and in a terrible location. Though I like the feel of the circle pad better than Vita's analogs.

One day we WILL get a modular control set up, and be able to interchange the location of the dpad and analog. A 3DS prototype had this and it would have been so wonderful Nintendo would have left it in the final design.

The problem I see here is that the analog stick from the prototype looks worse than the stick on the PSP (so small and dinky).

For the modular design to work and not have such a terrible circle pad, the 3DS itself would have to be larger (I would think).

Yea, that's just a prototype unit though. Of course I would want the final product to have the current circle pad. The picture was just an example of how it would work, not what I wanted exactly.

That's not necessarily true. Nintendo takes feedback from consumers all the time and delivers it to the development teams. The only question is if enough people will complain that the D-pad is crap.

I actually like the cod games for the ds more than the console counterparts. Nspace did a fantastic job. but because they didnt have amazing graphics makes them bad?? I hate the graphics *****s of this generation, when it comes down to games the 3ds is simply going to have more its happened with the ds, gba, and gb. I like vita and all but sony do not know how to make a portable console because uncharted GA is not a console experience it a blatantly watered down game that doesn't have advantages of it being portable except being portable.

When people say they want the games to differ from consoles that doesn't mean that they want the game to be small; they want the game to take advantage of the handhelds strengths to make a console quality game that plays differently than what you are use to. Mario land 3d is cool because nintendo tried something new and they made the game 100% made for 3d you couldn't play mario 3d land on wii. But uncharted GA you could play it on ps3 and you would say it was disappointing because it lacked online. Both appeal to the console crowd, only one relies on graphics to make you forget about the stale gameplay

HOWEVER! when little big planet comes out I will eat my words most likely, that game is going to be incredible and that game will offer and amazing console and portable experience without being watered down, so LBP is going to be amazing.

I think the two systems really appeal to slightly different audiences; The 3DS for people who want a casual or completely different kind of experience (Professor Layton, SM 3D Land, etc) and the Vita will appeal more to people who want to take the 'console experience' on the go (i.e. action games like CoD and Uncharted). It wouldn't be too crazy to assume that fighting games work better on the Vita in general though due to it having a much better Dpad than the 3DS...

That's not true. GA's main problem is that it keeps using the system's features (almost all of the features). It's getting annoying. I don't want any handheld entries of established franchises to control differently than the console versions. That's how we get things like Spirit Tracks. Ick.

Resident Evil: Revelaitons? Metal Gear Sold 3DS? Tales of the Abyss? Monster Hunter?

There are plenty of "console like" games on the 3DS and lots of others on the way. Likewise for the Vita. Both consoles appeal to both markets, like they should if they want to be successful.

true enough. I feel like the Vita is pushing those console- like games in their marketing more than the 3DS' is though. That may just be me though...

Yeah, if there's one thing I can fault Sony for, it's awful marketing. I follow gaming a lot, and I barely remembered the Vita release myself. Even the 3DS had advertising , albeit faulty, leading up to launch. People need to at least know that the Vita is a thing that exists.

I guess it depends on the channels you watch. I've seen most of the 3DS commercials on USA and Bravo (my GF watches this channel not me!).

Black Ops DS had more zombie maps than the Wii version (it has 4 vs the Wii's 1), and still manages to have:
33 weapons (including an explosive-tipped crossbow, throwing knives, RPG's, and a standalone grenade launcher),
4 attachments,
12 multiplayer maps (to be played on in Free for All, TDM, Capture the Flag, Team Capture the Flag, and Sabotage),
16 campaign levels (in which you can pilot a jet fighter, a helicopter, a gunboat, and must eventually destroy a Soviet submarine base storing Nova 6),
62 titles/challenges to earn/complete outside of challenge mode, and
6 single player modes [campaign, quick play, arcade, challenge mode (with 24 trials), zombie mode, and and a weapons range time trial called Killhouse, not counting Training].

This game also keeps track of detailed statistics for each gun you use, knives, grenade, launchers, zombie mode, and multiplayer.

And it's on the DS.


Disregarding the graphics, this game is impressive given the DS's limitations.

Edit: This gives me high hopes for 3DS and Vita COD's/other shooters.

That's not at all true for me, I still love playing MK7 all the time, and also Revelaitons as a console-like game. It doesn't always have to be all or nothing for everyone. And you have to consider that a ton of people have that mentality with the 3ds. It still is just all about game genres and styles.

In the Reality. Ps Vita does have few good games (Uncharted, Gravity Daze, and few others) but 3DS have gaemz.

The 3DS and the Vita both have gimmicks - 3D effects and motion controls for the former and touch controls for the latter. This obviously means that they're horrifically terrible and that they'll both fail horribly. In addition, the only ones who will buy them are idiotic fanboys are 5 year-old kids.

Am I doing it right?

There's quite a bit more than those two and a "few others". And if GD doesn't count as a "gaem" then, really, what does?

Please list all "other" the PS Vita games if you're bothered to do it.

I've only played Wipeout 2048 for a few hours but it's incredible. Perfect fit for the launch of the Vita. And the game isn't selling in Japan... I can't understand their tastes. Solid 9/10, at least that's my impression after a few hours with it.

Uh... wonderful? But I hope you can recognize the difference between good games and games you're interested in. I'm not interested in most Nintendo 1st party games but I know they're good.

Wonderful.
For me in general... I don't like music game sorry if you liked that sort of game for your taste of game. I respect your taste of your games.
Sorry if I went off track somehow. I will definitely buy PS Vita next year or two for more games. Well Nintendo wins me this year at least.

It wouldn't be too crazy to assume that fighting games work better on the Vita in general though due to it having a much better Dpad than the 3DS...
Just because the 3DS has inferior graphics capabilites as compared to the Vita doesn't mean it's for the casual market. There are some pretty good action games on the 3DS, and creative ones at that. The Vita will have CoD? Great! Let's all give Activision money for a game we had 5 years ago!!

Same for me against the 3DS fanboys wanting the Vita to fail.
Very annoying.

Why can't we get along and wish for both these handhelds to succeed to save the dedicated portable gaming market?

The first post states that troll posts will be infracted. There was fair warning, so you'll have to accept the consequences.
If you have an issue with us personally, take it to PM or Feedback. Don't complain in this thread, since the topic has a very specific purpose.


Anyway, I do see the Vita as a far better system then the 3DS. It's taking full advantage of its hardware and knows very well that its demographic is dedicated gamers. It's a nice contrast to the iOS, which is the complete opposite side of the spectrum.

On the other hand, Nintendo is trying to play both the casual and hardcore crowd at the same time, adding peripherals and promising DLC while at the same time feeding us a dozen Mario games this year. They're trying to have their cake and eat it too. It's stuck in the middle ground and, as a result, lacks the benefits of either side.

It'll be good for the usual first party games, which is most of the reason I bought it, but Nintendo needs to decide on a demographic if they want to compare to the other two.

Always nitpicking at the smallest things. It wasnt even a true troll post. Anyway I wont even bother trying to deal with any of you as that'd have the same effect telling a rock to move. Youre just going to twist it your way, so whatever.

I think that they CAN appeal to everyone. If nintendo network is great, they release a redesign with dual analog, and push some 1st party games that appeal to gamers. I.E Metroid, Zelda. Then continue to grab 3rd party support, they will appeal to those of us who game a lot. Then the nintendogs,brain age, pricing will bring in the casual. They have come close to achieving the perfect storm.

I bought a vita, and yes I think it is the best piece of hardware on the market today, but from a business standpoint, the 3ds just works better. I hope that the vita can come close to the 3ds in sales, to show Nintendo that power is important come next gen and that it will sell.

I don't see a redesign helping all that much. They'd still have to develop games to work with one analog and two shoulder buttons for those who have the original model of the system, and it'd be a pretty bad move on their part to alienate all those users from their main titles.

Also, is the 3DS even getting the user account stuff from Nintendo Network? I thought that it's only confirmed for the Wii U.

I think they could use the dual analog just like they did with revelations. It's not that hard to create a control scheme for both. Example: Zelda with it would just have added camera support.

Also I don't know about the nintendo network thing, but all I was saying is that if they do it right they can attract some "core gamers.

I own both and wont both to succeed. As a gamer why would anyone want only one quality hand held console. Sony and Nintendo both seem so far to have brought very different things to the table and both are/seem (I'm not ready to confirm yet for the vita as it has only bee out for one day) to be fantastic.

Am I doing it right?
3d done right needs be no more a gimmick then seeing in 3d in real life.

I still don't see why Nintendo has to choose a particular demographic. From Iwata's comments, Nintendo has made it clear that they want to bridge the gap between "hardcore" and "casual" because in reality those two categories don't even exist.

.... where are you getting that because the graphics on 3DS are inferior I thought it was for the casual market? I'm more thinking of 'casual' games on the 3DS are a bit more prominent on the 3DS than the Vita, such as Cooking Mama for example. And I'm fully aware of the great action games on 3DS, I only mentioned CoD because it'll be pretty close to the proper console experience, you don't have to like it...

My only problem with the vita is that it's super awesome and it was expensive so I'm choosing to keep it secret from my kids and their grubby little hands. I can only use it when my little guy is at school in the afternoon and after they are both sleeping for the night. If the kids knew I had this I wouldn't get to use it at all...ever!
I can however, use my 3DS while they are around because they each have their own. So, +1 for 3DS in that it doesn't have to be kept seekrit.

I'll sum up the 3DS vs. PSV thing.

Both handhelds suck ass. Just choose the piece of crap you prefer, or get both if you have the money. That was irony, btw.

If this is true and lives up to the hype Nintendo is giving it, I will retract any statements I have made against Nintendos online policies.
But the company is pretty well known for promising to up their game without actually delivering. Until we actually see NN in action I will reserve judgement.

There has never been a better time to be a dual handheld gamer. Both the 3DS and Vita improved on the last systems by leaps and bounds, and everyone wins. Anyone who has both is the real winner .

Yep, enough said right there. Reminds me of how much the technology improved from n64 to gamecube and ps1 to ps2 for consoles, in some ways at least.

I totally agree. He seems like one of the few unbiased YouTube reviewers.

I'm glad the Vita's recording is better than the 3DS's, because man, it sucks major ass...

I think the Vita's recording being slightly better than the 3DS's is neither here nor there, the same as the 3DS taking better stills.

The truth is both are pretty bad when compared to an actual camera/camcorder or indeed many other devices, so you should be either of the 'they both suck' camp or the 'they both do enough for intended purpose' camp.

Arguing over which is best (i'm not saying you or anyone else were), is just pointless.

Even though the cameras aren't very important and their quality not very good, I still think it's cool that the 3DS can take 3D videos, because I don't have any other device that can do that at all. 3D sex tapes.

Fun fact: After two months, Sony's Vita has sold 1.2 million units worldwide. Nintendo's 3DS sold 3.6 million worldwide in about half that time also of 1.2 million Vitas and 2 million games (digital/retail) sold global. 3DS - 3.6 million hardware, 9.4 million games.

Proof Nintendo systems don't need games to sell, just the name Nintendo and the promise of a Mario game.

Of course, it certainly wasn't based on that launch line up or price.

None of those are system sellers.
The three items that are keeping the 3DS afloat right now are the DS brand name, Mario and Monster Hunter.

Probably is the just the fact that Nintendo has always been known as the handheld company since the gameboy, so that will just continue to give it the backup of being at least a solid system every time a new one is released.

You obviously have no idea how dedicated the Kingdom Hearts fanbase is if you don't think it will sell a few systems. What's keeping the system 'afloat' as you put it are that it's a good system at a decent price with good software now and more coming in the near future.

Last I checked, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle was sold with a fair amount of launch 3DS's in Japan. I'd say that's a system seller, even if it's only in Japan.

And if RE:R isn't a system seller, I don't know what is. xP

Arguing over which is best (i'm not saying you or anyone else were), is just pointless.
I agree. It's just on the Vita and the 3DS because otherwise people will be complaining that they have no camera (which isn't a bad thing, because I like to be able to play games and take pictures with the same device). But indeed, the camera on devices like the iPhone/iPod is a lot better.

Why you say that?

On the 3DS with Netflix, when you pause, fast forward, and then continue from a location, I wait like 8-15 seconds for the load par to move. with the Vita it's almost instantly. + It is extremely fast when starting to play a video. Only disadvantage is the initial loading of Netflix on the Vita, it takes awhile, but once that loads, it's extremely fast.

Also the loading of the images on the genre selection screen with the series/movie covers loads extremely fast compared to the 3DS.

So why put it in the Garbage thread? If the 3DS forums didn't want any talk about the Vita, they wouldn't make a general gaming section and keep this topic for as long as it has, lol. 526 Pages in this topic... I think this could still continue, lol.

The garbage thread keeps the PSV vs 3DS discussions contained to one place.

Over the summer, they were EVERYWHERE. It was insane.

Whoa. Were the posts moved from the Vita thread or did I just imagine the whole thing?

The Garbage thread is where the 3DS/Vita comparisons belong.

Vita will fall below 5k per week sales during March in Japan. Mark my words.

There's literally like 1 game release for it during the whole month and it's a port of a PSP game that sold 40k units lifetime

Why not? As much as I love the Vita, a 3D screen would be great. The lack of 3D on the Vita is something that I miss. Of course, it's not crucial, but why would you not want it if it were possible? It would be a definite improvement for me.

I'm not a 3d fanatic either by any means, but it works so perfectly for a game like Revelations and really makes a huge difference in the atmosphere. Then again, it's literally nothing but a gimmick in a game like MK7.

I was fine with the Game Boy games being black and white, but color was still an advantage.

I've probably felt at some point or another it would look/play better in 3D with every one of my Vita games so far. Wipeout is so chaotic, 3D would definitely help. ModNation Racers has such crazy track design, sometimes it's really hard to make out where you're supposed to go and 3D would be equally if not more useful there. Uncharted, it would probably just look better.

EDIT: The UI also seems made for 3D to me, even if the advantage there would just be purely visual.

I do like it in mario kart though, I like having the second virtual eye being opened, which I am glad the are using the 3d as a visual enhancer. I just think it really makes mario kart look better

Eh, I haven't used it literally at all other than the first few cups I played in honestly. It's just that for the amount of time I play it, there's no point in leaving it on to take up that much more of the battery. For Rev, I have it on at all times because it literally does change how the game looks and immerses you in it.

Vita already flopped in Japan and flopped in USA on release. I mean, if 3DS didn't get monster hunter then we would really see a good show in Japan. In usa, people don't really like hand held gaming and a near 400 dollar vita that play games I already have on ps3 is flop. Psp vs ds all over again.

Handheld gaming IS popular in America.

Just not as popular as it is in Japan.

Also, the Vita hasn't been out long enough to determine whether or not it's a flop.

I like that the PSVita is far more compact, in terms of full size when playing the system. I also like how Sony has always made the PSP series far more technologically advanced in terms of presentation especially.

However, I will always have to hand it to Nintendo for its utmost dedication to the public interest (to a certain extent) as well as the unbeatable range of stunning, first party games that have been running the show since the 80's.

there are plenty of good games coming out for the vita, you should try some of them or for that matter you should try newer franchises you've never tried before. some of the best games are usually the ones you take a chance on.

We should compare them in the same point of their lives (start of Vita's vs start of 3DS's).

*Mentally compares*

Nope.

I totally agree with you! There are absolutely no fans of the Vita here. I know I would never buy a Vita. I totally hate how awesome Super Stardust Delta is!

You are so open minded, and have the best educated opinion, based on experience instead of ignorance.

We should be friends.

Hi there.

You must be new here.

Since you don't even know this site has plenty of users who are interested in the Vita and are not biased Nintendrones.

Currently I agree with his comment and I very much so like my Vita. But the lineup is definitely stronger in my eyes for the 3ds, but then again the Vita is only a bit over a week old so no real comparisons can be made yet (plus I imagine E3 will hold alot of announcements for both platforms).

Just thought I'd point out something:

At the end of this virtual tour of the 3DS uploaded over a year ago, the announcer says "Nintendo 3DS - It's a game changer." Now, what's Sony telling people to hashtag at the end of Vita-related tweets? "#gamechanger"

To me, this sounds like an attempt to not sound like a fanboy. All systems have their qualities and all, but I'm pretty sure we all have that one system we favor above all others.

I think that might be a little harsh, if he said the opposite like some of the clear fanboys here, people would jump on him. I don't even have a vita yet, but I'm almost positive that I will at the least really like it, even if not as much as the 3ds.

I was pointing out that it sounds suspicious. No one truly likes all consoles equally.

Where was that fact written at? Ironically your post sounds fanboy'ish in a way.

Could you explain both of what you wrote? I don't know which "fact" you're looking for or how my post sound fanboy-ish.

I like my Wii, 360, 3DS, and Vita equally. I don't prefer any of them over the other. They each provide a different experience. People like me do exist.

You said no one likes all consoles equally, and I said what I said getting at how do you know for sure. I'm pretty sure there's an abundance of people of love all consoles equally. Also I said fanboy'ish, because your comment could come off as you have to like consoles over others, which is how fanboys think(though I wasn't calling you one at all).

I hate to admit I haven't touched my 3DS since I got my VITA, It's sad really, just got a circle pad pro to use with RE too. Man I wish I had more time to use both.
And I really want to play RE, I'll eventually get around to it my my friggin VITA keeps on sucking me in, I blame Super Stardust: Delta and Ninja Gaiden Sigma !

That's funny, i've just seen one of your posts on another forum saying the 360 is your favourite console and that you prefer the Vita over the PS3.

Or do you have an imposter.

Did I mention the PS3 on my post here? I gave it away a while ago. The systems I mentioned are the ones I like equally.

Yes here you're saying you like them all equally but on a different forum you're saying you prefer the 360, two opposing statements.

I'm not trying to start something, I just find it funny.

It's true that I prefer Xbox Live over what the competition is doing, and anyone that knows me knows this by now. But I still like all of my consoles equally.

That's a bit of a oxymoron, but fair enough, i know where your coming from. I prefer Nintendo consoles, but that doesn't mean I don't see their faults and it doesn't mean I don't enjoy other consoles. I've owned most gaming platforms since the mid eighties.

I severely doubt that. I can't think of an argument without using "favorite child" as a metaphor. Although we'd like to think we like all consoles equally, but I think we all have a console we favor above all others based off of our experiences with it. Liking one more than the other doesn't make you a fanboy, per se. From my understanding, fanboys generally choose one side and stick to it regardless of the facts against it. To be an open-minded doesn't mean you'll love all of them equally. (missing one sentence)

Personally, I've had better experiences with my ds than I ever has with my 360. Then again, my 360's library sucks.
