PS Vita by far is still the better handheld than the 3ds but this is based on who is playing it. I have both, heck I also have GB, GBC,GBA, DS Lite, PSP, 3DS and PS Vita. I prefered the psp over DS even though DS had the better library.

PS Vita just gives me what I want from games. I don't find anything on the 3DS shelf interesting apart from MH, Mario, Zelda and Pokemon.

I wish Sony would support the Vita. Release a new SKU with R2/L2 at a lower price, put some exclusive titles on it, and advertise a PS4/Vita bundle. That's all it would take to move this system from legacy to modern.

Go Vita.
My only complaint is that avls volume control that you have to turn off every time you turn it on.

I think you might have something set up incorrectly, I don't have to do this each time. Maybe check your settings out?

Way to go Sony, however I see no going further with the Vita. PS Vita was the very first gaming system I purchased day 1, and such a strong start with the system, amazing lineup of games, up until a couple years ago, and now nothing. As Sony people put it, it's now a legacy platform. Last game I purchased was Killzone: Mercenary, 2 years ago. I absolutely love the systemost and its capabilities, but support for the system is virtually no where to be found.

He reported me for that comment, even though it's a totally reasonable request, and an accurate assessment of the comment itself.
