I am definitely liking the Vita more right now. I haven't bought any games, but with Plus it's no contest for me.

Anybod else love the OP's user review? It made me giggle a bit, more so because of the title than the content. :)

Okay, a simple wrong would've done just fine.

I have both portables and love them.

Lately, I have been spending more time playing with my PS Vita and my 3DS has been sitting there to be played.

I got Heroes of Ruin during Black Friday and got Castlevania 3DS preordered, so I plan to put sometime on the 3DS after I am done with Liberation and Zero Escape.

That Emu Kid says:
Console wars rule #373: Zelda games are worth 50.

#374: Remastered versions of Ocarina of Time are worth 200.

#375: Metroid, Kirby, and Donkey Kong games are only worth, like, 20.

Not for nothing but he defined "quality" as a metacritic score range.

I agree with you that I look for the system that has the games I want to play, but the OP made a decent case. I think Emu has a point in that Mario is just that huge a draw for a lot of people.

Is there a rule about how portable versions Mario/Metroid/Zelda games are all "rehashed" but portable versions of GoW, LBP, Killzone, etc are new and exciting? :)

I kid.

I agree, I think my point was more about his range. I wouldn't put the range at 70+ games. I'd tighten that range to 10-15, maybe even 5. But again, I only worry about the games I can afford and find the time to play. If I can buy and beat a new game once a month, I am doing well. :)

What astounds me is the Mario spinoff games. Stuff like Mario Party and Olympics sell really well, despite being terrible games.

Some of us get multiple systems. I have four PSPs. *shrug*

Did I? Nah, I was with family all day on BF. I didn't even know there was a sale.

I'm in the same boat. The last game I bought on 3DS is NSMB2, which was a heck of a fun time. The Vita's releases are much more interesting to me lately.

I totally agree with your statement. The biggest reason for me dumping the 3DS for the Vita is that LBP Vita, Escape Plan, Gravity Rush, Assassin's Creed: Liberation were more appealing to me than Mario Land 3DS, Paper Mario, Mario Bros 2, and yes, even Ocarina of Time (if only because it's a remastered copy of a GREAT game). Don't get me wrong, I loved OoT and Mario Land but Nintendo games just don't appeal to me the way Playstation games do.

Edit: However, a lot of complaints about the Vita are that it lacks quality games over the 3DS and I believe I demonstrated that that is not true.

Are we talking about the DS or GBA game?

I had the DS game and it was alright but got stupid hard near the end. So weird that people called it "kiddy".

Finding out what you like is important. There isn't a right and wrong when it comes to gaming preference. :)

Why? Unlike a console, it isn't tied to a room.

The Vita has 31 games? Damn I own a Vita and only have 6 games.

Same here. The last game I bought and played before this past Black Friday was New Super Mario Bros 2 when it launched in Aug.
