It might be a good idea to wait to buy the 3DS until the middle of 2012. What if the Vita's launches strong and Sony holds off on a redesign? What if Nintendo redesigns the 3DS and clearances the old model in late spring of 2012? What about skipping both and sticking with an Android/iOS device? If anything, gamers should know by now with the handheld market it best to wait at least 6 months before purchasing.
