All I got from that image is that the Wii U gamepad is bulky is as hell

i didnt know the 3DS was a beast until i saw Resident evil gameplay. am totally getting one to balance out the incredible power and graphics of the Vita.

I am still trying to beat Revelations on hard... seriously it's an amazing game and the 3D effect is pretty good. If you can have a 3DS + Vita then you will be a happy person. Also, I would like to introduce you to some 3DS games (including upcoming games for this year) so you can search for more info later and see if there is any game you want:
-The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
-Super Mario 3D Land
-Resident Evil: Revelations
-Kid Icarus: Uprising
-Pilotwings Resort
-New Super Mario Bros. 2
-Mario Kart 7
-Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
-Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
-Paper Mario
-Luigi's Mansion 2
-Professor Layton
-Heroes of Ruin
-Castlevania: Mirror of Fate
-Mario Tennis
-Fire Emblem
-Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
-Animal Crossing
-Harvest Moon: A New Beginning
-Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

I am sure you will be happy with both handhelds. Good luck!

woah woah woah woah, hold on... Did You Say PILOT WINGS!? omg that was THEE best Game On the N64 i can't Believe that they made another one!!! IM SOLD. thank you for that. and that's cool yeah Resident evil really looks like a true resident evil game. thank you again.

Coltrane_C2185d ago

Pilotwings on 3D was not the same experience....Warning you now

Hisiru2185d ago

As Coltrane_C said, it's not exactly the same experience, but it's a very good game and the 3D effect is one of the best on the system. Also, if you want 100% on this game, then it will very challenging.

Wow yeah. If those pictures really are to scale then it's even longer than on ipad. Eesh.

Y_51502186d ago

I would like all those devices. You know, for comparing purposes. :P

StraightPath2186d ago

The large screen will beautiful, but the increase of overall size not sure how comfortable it will feel until i hold one personally. Vita is pretty large aswell.

PoSTedUP2186d ago

the only handhelds that were comfortable were the gamegear and the gameboys imo, all the new ones cramp my hands after like 8 minutes. the Grips for the psp and the vita are a must. the vita is only a little bigger than the psp, it's still too thin to be comfortable if you're not a little kid.

Hisiru2186d ago

I had no problems holding my vita or my PSP, but I had some problems trying to play FPS games on the original DS (it hurts my hands).

PoSTedUP2185d ago

i aint trying to diss the vita, i love it and play it everyday. i just had to get the grip for it, just the fact that it doesn't fit your hands it's like trying to do pullups on a 2x4 (2-by-4)

NeXXXuS2185d ago

maybe you just have bigger than average hands?

PoSTedUP2185d ago

idk. i have the same size hands as my cousin and he says the ps3 controller is too small for him meanwhile i feel it is just perfect. humph...

I'm a bit worried about it's PPI as it'll most likely have the same resolution as the standard model, but on a much larger screen. Hopefully the image wont look like shite. Also, the whole thing seems a bit too big for comfort, standard model size with bigger screen would be better.

Tony-A2186d ago

The screen size is still a tad smaller than th Vita's? Wow, I guess I never really noticed how insanely large the screen is. (writing this from my Vita) haha
