the thing about the vita is it is a useless handheld device. Yeah sure its a decent multi media device but the thing is everyone has a samsung galaxy or an iphone, and no one will use a vita over their phones or tablets for media. The 3ds also has media function, though the screen display and resolution blows.The psp1 was much more revolutionary back in the day, it was ahead of its time.
Also, please list the 18 games that you want on the vita as im having trouble finding even 1 game on the vita I want (aside from possibly nfs mw). The 3ds games wise blows the vita out of the water, though to be honest the 3ds' library isn't so great either. Well at least its backwards compatible with the DS so theres a huge library of quality games for dirt cheap.
if there is not even 1 vita game you want maybe PSV is just not for you... I know 3DS has a bigger library but personally have no interest in 95% of its games... Doesnt mean 3DS sucks, just not the handheld for me..
Since I got the PSV last August i bought 7 games, there are approx 3 others I want to download from PS store and soon getting Persona4 & SF vs Tekken...
Also on my to get list there are LBP & Everybody's Golf, since i love both series of games...
I'm not saying the PSV has a HUGE games library but it does have games (exclusives & multiplats)..
