i think it depends on the game. i've played hot shots golf on psp and vita and they both did equally well. tekken 2 plays better on psp than vita, the graphics are terrible on the vita- more pixilated and blurry. the added touch controls don't enhance gameplay at all.

I'm not interested in the Xbox One, at least not yet- gotta see what it can actually do first. Best part of all this that I can see is the price of 360 and all its related accessories will drop way down and make it all just that much easier to buy. That part works just fine for me.
Sony is simply not putting any money behind its marketing. We know about it because we like games and are on this site, but to the more average consumer, the device is invisible. I really couldn't believe how under the radar the launch was. At least with psp Sony had some hype for the launch. With Vita, the launch reminds me of Sonys attempt to "re-support" the psp with the ads featuring the young teen--and that didn't last long. To me the Vita feels like a device which barely even made it to market. Conceptually it has potential, but I can just picture the higher ups saying, "fine, launch the Vita. Here's $80,000 to cover the marketing."Heirren
This is totally right and well very said. No exposure is equaling no sales for the vita. Whoever heads Sony's promotion dept. should be fired.
The expense of the vita aside, my biggest issue has been lack of good quality games for vita and that there also aren't very many games to play on it either. Those that are available aren't really that great and most only keep pace with whats already found on ds, psp, or as an app for apple and android products. Sony promoted the vita as the handheld equivalent to a home console and thats what sold me and so many others on their product, despite the price tag. With the exception of a few games (Gravity Rush, Uncharted, Metal Gear HD) nothing thats been released has lived up to those boasts yet. If Sony's vita wants to be the next big thing in handheld gaming then its gotta bring something that the competition doesn't already have, not just keep pace with them. Nobody wants to spend big $$ on the same side-scrolling, pixelated crap thats found in the apple/android app stores or for gameboy/ds (and for far less $$ too, for that matter). Sony needs to wake up and step it up before we consumers decide to step off.
