    Save your money.

    You already have a 3DS so you don't need to buy another one, even if it does have BIGGER SCREENS OMG.

    The Vita currently has no super amazing buy-this-handheld games, so wait until some are released and the price is lowered (optional)

    Just keep your 3DS, and buy a Vita secondhand.

    By the way, you won't get many unbiased answers here. Not the best place to ask this question.

    If the vita price was a little lower, I'd roll with that. Otherwise stick with what you have.

    I have a Vita, and I still do not play it. LittleBig Planet is coming, It will be the first good game, so you should wait.

    I really hope you're trolling.

    Feels morally wrong, but I am gonna buy the PS Vita once it's decently hacked. I like emulators. :>

    The Vita has barely any games out.
    I don't really see any point in getting one at this moment in time.
    Most people trade theirs in rather than buy them, and just complain about the lack of games. I'd wait out another year if you were thinking of the Vita.
    Upgrade to a 3DS XL, it has a growing spectrum of games, and even more great looking games are being released this fall that will look bigger and better with the XL screen (and I have one, it looks great!). I'm sure stores near you will have special offers if you want to upgrade for a nice price. Just remember to request a data transfer before you sell it.

    If you intend on trading in the 3DS to get the 3DS XL then stick with the XL, if you intend on keeping your 3DS then wait and get the Vita when LBP is out.

    Im not trolling and I agree with him. Gravity rush and uncharted are good but not good enough to justify buying a vita. Rayman, mvc3 , mortal kombat, MGS collection are ports that 90% of people have played before (ok with small extras but its the same game) and the other games are crap.

    LBP looks to be implementing every single feature of the vita, its a game that will stay fresh with its online multiplayer and creation mode, the creation mode looks even better than LBP2's creation mode and that is quite a feat in itself. Yes most people have played LBP before but with it using the touch screen, mic and camara i think it will make it a fresh game and certainly one that justifies buying a vita.

    Seeing as you already have a 3DS, I would've said Vita, but currently the game library is disappointing, so if you absolutely can't wait to spend your money then I'd suggest the XL. ;)

    Trade your 3DS up for an XL.

    Even so, hopefully it'll be a bit cheaper by then.

    I'm getting a Vita when Ys:Celceta of Seas is out. Because Ys is a fucking fantastic series.
