I don't own a handheld console, but lately I have been thinking of buying a Vita or 3DS. I am going to get PS4 on launch day, so should I buy a Vita or 3DS?

i have both and they offer very different experiences, both good in their own right.

I would go vita in your situation because of remote play, cheaper software prices and the games that come with PSplus.

But if you really love nintendo games and love platformers...then 3DS. Not many companies make platformers anymore.

Don't buy either unless you do a lot of gaming on the go.

Especially compared with ps4 next gen console, youll just be disappointed every time you go to play something on a micro screen.

Based on sales numbers and games available.
I think 3DS is better.

Yea buying a system based on sales. Sounds brilliant I might add.. /s.

I own a PS3, PS Vita, Wii U and 3DS, I had a Xbox 360 but I only enjoyed a few games, I got tired of playing the same games and I realized most the games I was playing on 360 were just multiplats anyway.

Some of those things might not be selling so well, sure, doesn't mean I am not enjoying them. Sales are never a factor in anything I purchase.

I mean seriously who gets all excited about a new systems. Walks into a store or is about to buy it online and thinks to themselves.. Hmm I wonder how many units they have sold.. Any other person in their right mind would just be thinking about how much fun they are going to be having with it not about sales figures.

Vita! unless you're a huge pokemon fan because I only own a 3ds because of pokemon. 3ds has some games little to none in my opinion though. if it wasn't for pokemon I would own a vita.

3DS. Vita still needs a lot more killer apps to become a viable purchase in my opinion. With 3DS, you'll have access to crap ton of great 3DS games like Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, Etrian Odyssey IV, Luigi's Mansion 2, Mario Kart 7 and Fire Emblem: Awakening while also having access to all DS and DSi games.

"Don't buy either unless you do a lot of gaming on the go."

Is that why some of the handheld games, especially the ones on the 3DS, ends up having more substance than just style? Come on...

"3ds has some games little to none in my opinion though"

Seeing the 3DS as nothing more than a Pokemon machine is ignorance at its finest.

If you asked me, you basically just answered your own question. They are both awesome handhelds, I don't care what anyone says, they both have plenty of great games also but the fact you are getting a PS4 on launch it would just make sense to get a Vita to me.

Or if that doesn't help at all. You should just be looking at each systems games and features. Pick based on what games you currently are more interested in or what features you would get more use out of right now.

People can tell you which is better or list off games they think you should buy it for but in reality, it should be what you want it for. Not what others want.
