    So I certainly want to buy Virtue's Last Reward, because I loved 999, but I have a 3DS and a PS Vita and don't know which version to choose.

    I have just a normal 3DS so based on the screen size I would pick the PS Vita version, but maybe the 2 screens is more of a plus for the controls in this game.

    So which would you recommend?

    The Vita version apparently has less issues with bugs than the 3DS version apparently. A puzzle room froze on me and after I finished an ending, the game crashed on me. Fortunately my save was ok but I nearly did shit myself.

    3DS version would be easier to play regarding doing the puzzles. Using a stylus in much easier than using your finger as you would have to on a Vita (unless you buy a capacitive touch screen stylus).

    Also take into account there's no english voice acting in the European version of the game because Rising Star Games seemingly didn't give a shit about licensing it. Personally I prefer listening to voice acting in english so this was a blow me.

    If I were you, I'd import the US Vita version. The controls would be a pain but least the game would perform better and you get to listen to the glorious and amazing english dub an actual choice for the VA.

    Yep, the UK version of VLR has some bugs but i think its gonna be later fixed in the European version.
    HINT:The game was not released outside of UK. Germany release date is Spring 2013.

    Ok so I think I'll take the PS Vita version then.

    I actually wanted the Japanese voice acting, but I guess it would be nice that I could switch to english if I wanted just for the fun of it.
    I have a 15-euro-off coupon for a local gamestore but I could use that for P4: Golden when it comes out in february here.

    We just have the english version at our gamestores, so we don't have to wait for a translation.
    All gamers here play in english so no one bothers translating any 12+ handheld game to dutch.

    No no I still have to 'get' the game.
    It's the presents my parents are going to give me, but since they don't know a thing about games they just repay me the money.
    Also we don't give each other presents for christmas but at New Year.
    We don't have Santa Clause here but Sinterklaas on the 6th of decembre (which is actually basically the same thing but he looks a little different, even the name is similar) but that's only for the little kids.
    And at New Years Eve both the grown-ups and the kids get presents.

    If you live in Europe, Vita for voice-acting.

    North America, get the 3DS version thanks to the resistive touchscreen, 3D if you like that and dual-screens for jotting down notes.

    I actually had no problem with the 3DS version, at all. No freezing, no bugs, nothing. Only thing was spelling mistakes in the text lol. But then again, I did kind of keep my 3DS on for like 2 weeks straight...

    Finding that out myself.
    I'm a ninty fan but it's better on the vita.
    But I'll go with the 3ds version cause of 3d graphics.

    How is it better on the Vita? They're the exact same game :/ Even the graphics aren't better.

    Just buy the fucking game for the cheapest price on the system you use the most.

    Let's not turn this into a 3DS vs. Vita thread. It's the same game, there's minor differences between the two, minor enough that it doesn't even matter.

    Well yeah Santa exists here too, but more because of all the publicity and american christmass movies etc.
    Originally there was only Sinterklaas in Belgium and the Netherlands.
    It depends from family to family what they celebrate I guess.
