The 3DS and Vita compliment each other

From the article, "I own both a 3DS and a Vita. As someone who has always collected every dedicated handheld gaming device over the years, I couldn’t help buying and loving both. It’s because of this that I realized something. The two really aren’t in competition with each other. Rather, I find the two act as compliments to its rivals abilities, meaning someone who owns both systems will have access to some of the best games available this generation." (3DS, PS Vita)

It's like owning a ferrari and a monster truck.

Both are awesome, and it's better to have both than it is to have one, because you'll always be missing out on something if you only have one.

I concur completely. They have different experiences, but both have something amazing to offer.

Like owning a ps3 and wii u . Currently playing pilot wings resort , super Mario u and last of us.

They both have their own appeal. Nintendo has their high Nintendo quality franchises and Sony has amazing Sony polished games. Some do argue that one is for kids and the other is for adults but games are games. I own a ps vita and when the ps4 releases it will be the ultimate companion to my home console.

Face to face, sure. But what about in private? Do you think they badmouth each other behind the other's back?
sherimae2413  +   958d ago

It's a trolling account. Bring it down.
elhebbo16  +   958d ago

Hicken  +   958d ago
YES.

For a person like me with two jobs this combo complements each other perfectly. They both have good hunting games, portable version of series, and a exclusives that appeal to me personally for on the go.

Welcome to the world of handheld gaming ever since Nintendo's Game Boy had competition? :P
Pittoo  +   958d ago

sherimae2413  +   958d ago

Making you own opinion and not giving a shit about other people's opinions is generally the best way to go.

This is a great article.
Nice to read someone not whining about the Vita for once and actually talking about it's strengths. I love my Vita, I can go from playing Some Uncharted to playing Crash Bandicoot on the PSOne. Then maybe a bit of Guacamelee and then some Persona 4 Golden. LittleBigPlanet, Lumines, Gravity Rush, Rayman Origins, Everybody's Golf, the list goes on and on.

I think the Vita has a great library that has fun pick up and play games as well as the more serious epic ones. I realise it has no system seller games though, but for me I'm quite happy with my mix of PSOne, PS2 (Jak & Daxter trilogy) and Vita games that are already available.

The only thing from stopping me buying a 3DS though is the hardware, screen size and no second analogue stick.
If Nintendo matched Sony on the specs (I know they don't need too evidently) then I would be very happy to pick one up.

I,ve been loving both. They have some awesome games on each one (just wish i had more money to buy them). Also the vita has lots of excellent games coming out for it this year, peeps should think about picking one up.

Ive had a vita since launch day and just recently got a 3ds xl and couldn't be more happy with my purchases, i play a little hotline Miami on my vita then collect some bells in animal crossing, the best of both worlds
