Well Nintendo can certainly take a lesson from Sony.

Sony puts out a new model Vita and the new model actually has improvements over it's predecessor, unlike Nintendo's 3DS XL, no extra thumbstick, no longer battery life, just a larger version with less battery life and different colors.

Sony changes front screen from OLED to an LCD not better but acceptable, and they improve the rear touch screen and add an extra 2 hours on to the battery life, and pack in a great game like Borderlands 2 for the same price of $199.......and in my opinion thats how you do it, and thats how you take care of your fanboys.

Take a lesson Nintendo !!!!

You're absolutely wrong: the 3DS XL added extra battery life to the 3DS, improved on the backwards compatibility with the DS and DSi, and improved the screens. As revisions go, it was a great one, and much better than the Vita 2000, which downgrades the original Vita instead of improving it.

But Nintendo did improve on the 3DS with the XL, Char just explained it. Also Borderlands 2 is just a shitty port. Portstation Vita.

First of all the 3DS XL does not have a longer battery life than the original smaller 3DS, Secondly the major issue people had with the original 3DS is that it didn't have dual thumbsticks like the Vita, then when the 3DS XL was announced most people were convinced that the larger 3DS XL would definitely have the dual thumbsticks but it didn't, even the 2DS didn't have the extra thumbstick.......the different pretty little colors no one cares about ala Yoshi 3DS XL, Nintendo is either waiting until it's next portable to do it, or never intends to add one at all, even though dual thumbsticks are the conventional controls on everything now.

Uh dude, you're just ignorant or trolling. A bigger battery with a longer life was one of the chief improvements on the 3DS XL.

Secondly, you're bitching about them not including a feature you wanted included (a feature that is by the way available as an option should you want it), that they did not include because they didn't want to fragment the userbase? How about the fact that Sony too ignored the Vita's biggest flaw (i.e. its obscenely overpriced memory) with the Vita 2000?

Nintendo improved a shit ton with the 3DS XL. Sony downgraded the Vita with the 2000, and 'pretty colors' is actually a marketing line for the Vita 2000, not for the 3DS XL. Try again, troll.

The XL screen is better than the OG screen.

It also has a better build quality than the OG, as well as a longer battery- it's an upgrade. The 2000 uses an LCD over the original's gorgeous OLED, downgrades the build quality, omits features from the original (3G and the expansion port; thankfully no one cares about them, but it's by definition a downgrade), and somehow still costs the same.

Nope. 3ds xl battery life is better and the screen is more glare resistant than the original 3ds. The vita oled to lcd is a complete downgrade. The only reason I'm getting one is because of the new charging port that can use the many usb cables that I own.

So once it gets discontinued, I can still find a charger.

You know how hard it is now to find a legit charger for the psp 3000? All the ones on amazon are third party garbage and last two charges before they break.

Bull fucking shit. It's the exact same resolution on a much larger screen. When it's noticeable that it's more pixelated, and it is, it's a downgrade.

Build quality always goes in favor of the OG 3DS. It looks better and doesn't have the cheaper feeling materials. The XL is more ergonomic. The battery is barely a step up.

The new Vita has a much better build quality. Don't give that crap. The plastic, prone to chipping off, is now replaced by better material. The silver shiny ring, a horrible mainstay, is replaced with better, less prone to scratching material. The 3G and expansion ports were both useless and that's reaching and you know it. Instead, the battery life is actually a step up and there's memory on board (by definition, that's a upgrade).

The ergonomics are also a big step up and the system's slimmer.

Don't kid yourself Char. The Vita 2000's screen is a downgrade, but only as much as the 3DS XL's. The rest, holy fucking reaching.

Dude, I've used both the 3DS and the XL at length. The XL is better, significantly better, it has better build quality, the screen resolution is rarely pixelated (it shows up in one game out of how many hundred?), and the battery offers at the very least a full hour over the OG.

You are literally the only person who did not like the build quality of the original Vita. As an extension, you are also literally the only person who actually thinks the build quality on the goddamn plasticky Vita 2000 is better. The original was a thing of beauty. It felt like a premium product in your hands. The 2000 is fucking plastic.

And lol @ comparing a downgrade from OLED to LCD to a minor reduction in pixel density that doesn't even show most of the time. Just, lolBlab, lol.

Absolutely, no denying or under estimating Nintendo's first party titles, thats what sees them through their sales and ultimately gives them the lead, however now that the Vita can also act a second screen for PS4 it's only a matter of time before dev's take full advantage of that, and then the 3DS lead will be more deminished.

Ok, i'll give you the XL's improved battery life, but i notice you don't mention the lack of improved 3DS XL screen resolution, how the heck do you make a screen 70% bigger than it's predecessor and not improve the resolution? Did Nintendo think no one would notice, Come on, Even though Sony went from OLED to LCD the difference in resolution won't be nearly as noticeable as going from that little original 3DS screen to the 3DS XL.

Let's not forget the hinge issue for all DS and 3DS gamers with huge tempers when they play, the harder you slam your hands downward in frustration at a game the more likely the top screen is to flip right off it's hinge, a rare occurence i grant you, but it has happened to few people in my own little circle of life, but it's not something that can happen to a single screen device like a Vita.

Lol. the 2000 isn't an improvement? If your portable can't last at least a moderately lengthy flight without needing to charge it's not really that portable.

Plus i just checked Sony's website and other than the OLED and LCD tech of the original and 2000 series Vita there is NO difference in resolution or any other specs, Vita loses nothing in transition from OLED to LCD, whether visuals are as sharp to the naked eye or not remains to be seen.

As far as all other specs go, no difference what so ever, accept the obvious improved battery life of the 2000 series battery.

Yeah, but the memory is fragmented into two separate partitions, so it's singularly pointless. The 8GB inclusion is a nice touch, but it's on a per region basis, and not a universal inclusion with the SKU.

Because they can't change the resolution without fragmenting their userbase. Why is this something that you are not understanding? 3DS specs are set in stone, they can't mess with them unless they want to splinter their userbase into two (higher res/lower res, or dual analog/mono analog). More importantly, the lower PPI on the XL almost never shows.

The hinge issue is also not an issue on the XL, it's got a sturdier build that reinforces the hinge. And you want to talk about the Vita, how about the fact that the 3DS clamshell protects the system's screen from getting scratched, whereas there is nothing protecting the Vita's screens?

This is true, the XL is significantly less portable than the original 3DS. However, I find it to be about as portable as a regular Vita (although with significantly poorer ergonomics).

Nah, he's right. Like playing an XL in bed is an issue, the weight distribution is bottom heavy, it can get tiring. The XL was made to be a coffee table handheld by Nintendo's own admission- they probably did not expect it to become the de facto 3DS model.

You know, I own a Vita1000 and IMO it feels bulky and uncomfortable. I'm going to get a 2000 also, to compare. But I'm certain I'll like 2000 more, because I'm used to the slim & sleek PSP3000. The fucking start & select buttons annoy me to no end, but thank god for touchscreen. You can debate about OLED vs. LCD but LCD is still pretty good. I'll reserve judgement till 2000 officially launches in europe.

You're absolutely wrong: the 3DS XL added extra battery life to the 3DS, improved on the backwards compatibility with the DS and DSi, and improved the screens. As revisions go, it was a great one, and much better than the Vita 2000, which downgrades the original Vita instead of improving it.

Lol. the 2000 isn't an improvement? If your portable can't last at least a moderately lengthy flight without needing to charge it's not really that portable.

Interesting assertion, especially since the battery life on a Vita 2000 is roughly the same as that on a 3DS XL.

Yes. Which is an acceptable battery length for me. I waited to get an XL and didn't buy the OG 3ds model either...

Except we are discussing XL vs PSV 2000 here

Actually I was criticizing your comment. "

Vita 2000, which downgrades the original Vita instead of improving it.

But you responded with one factor, which incidentally I never even criticized in my original statement, I mentioned tons of other factors.

I'm not denying that the 3ds XL was a better revision. But the vita slim is better then the vita OG.
