I was always jealous of all the big games that came out on PSP that I didn't get to experience as a DS owner, and it seems that far more of these worthwhile experiences are in line for the Vita than for the 3DS. While the first-party 3DS games are normally top-notch, they are few and far between, so my library is very limited and I do not get much use out of the console. The battery life of the 3DS is also something I can't get past, and it leaves me playing more games on my phone than on any dedicated portable gaming device. I don't mean to hate on the 3DS, but do you guys think I should remedy this situation and go for it?
If you felt PSP had better games than DS then go ahead and get the Vita. I couldn't disagree more though, PSP had some good games, but the DS had far more good games than PSP. I suspect that will be the case this time around too, the good 3DS games are finally starting to come out. And the Vita is going to have even less battery life than the 3DS from what I understand it gets about 3.5 hours on a charge. What kind of phone do you have that gets 4 or 5 hours of playing games in a charge?
