    Vita has better graphics.
    3D just adds more depth (for some people that is)
    Now i'm leaving before 3DS vs Vita

    For me Higher Resolution+Better Graphics is the best option. 3D is just meh. When I had my 3DS I turned on the 3D like 4 times only.

    I didn't really want 3D, I just wanted a next-gen handheld. Should've waited for the Vita. :ha:
    but hey, at least I get Super Smash Bros....

    If you want graphics, go with the Vita.

    Resident Evil revelations had amazing 3D, playing 2D games look so flat, no going back for me.

    Graphics experience is actually really opinion-based. A person may find HD better because of the clarity, extra specifics etc. vice versa for 3D.

    What I suggest? Nothing. Go try both. Try out the 3DS demos at shops, then try the Vita. PSV is already out in the west.

    I also suggest not judging a console just on graphics.

    Okay. I think I'll leave now before this becomes another war thread.

    Personally, and I cannot stress that enough, I would enjoy either or. As long whatever I play doesn't bore me or control poorly, I couldn't care less.

    In my opinion, the 3DS would be better. I've never been a big fan of Sony, but the 3DS is good for several reasons:
    3DS Pros:
    The depth slider allows for a crisp or smooth 3D Experience.
    The graphics are HD (In my opinion), but can become jagged in some areas.
    I'm assuming that developers are now making games that were on console for 3DS. Better 3rd party games have appeared
    No paying or surcharges for usage, or subscriptions.
    DLC is supposed to be mostly free.
    3DS Cons:
    In my experience, I've lost a bit of my depth perception.
    The graphics are disappointing in 2D
    The capabilities are not being used to their maximum potential, IMO
    There are a lack of games with a good variety of gameplay.
    DLC hasn't been implemented
    Lack of "Homebrew Scene" (It is my understanding that the Vita had been hacked... Not sure...)

    It's all my opinion though, and I own a PSP. I am rather disappointed, but I still have to cast a Nintendo Vote.

    I'm a nintendo fanboy, so I'll always choose 3ds for the first party titles, but aside from 3D and greater portability, I think the Vita is physically a better system in quite literally every way. If you don't care for Nintendo-exclusive titles, I can't honestly recommend the 3DS over the Vita. But that's just me.

    my personal recommendation? wait a good six months and see what games the vita has available.

    PS: also forgot another con of the Vita is their purposeful monopoly to force you to spend more money. Example, the special memory cards that you can only buy from them. Complete bs, especially considering a standard sd card of greater storage is MUCH cheaper than theirs. It's one of the main reasons I avoid sony gaming in the first place.

    Depends, try the 3DS out, the 3D has different effects on different types of people. For example, it makes me cry and burns my eyes while my friend can play with it all day. But I do agree that it's awesome, but it's still rather subjective.

    if you did not know it , thats not a 3ds in the pic , its a ds.
    anyways, if you talk about specs and stuff ,then the vita is the superior option because its much more powerful than the 3ds, the only thing the 3ds has going for it is the 3d, i have a 3ds and i am enjoying it as of now, cant wait for the games that are coming up. i have a psp and a ps2 as well so i have seen what sony has to offer so i am going to give you my unbiased opinion.
    graphics dont matter for me because i believe that if the 3ds can play mh3g at 60 fps, thats enough for me.
    but if you wait it out then i am sure psvita would be getting some superb titles in the coming months as it has a lot of potential.
    so you should probably wait a few months to see the games on which side interest you.
    and yeah try out a 3ds or a vita
    my personal opinion
    go for a vita =p

    The top picture is so 3D that it projects out and overlaps the gap between the screens. Even if the 3DS had absolutely perfect 3D it wouldn't be across both screens like that.

    I like the 3DS's Graphics because its simplistic and vibrant, I hate HD games where I have to spend a good 6 or 7 minutes in one room looking around for Ammo, or the weapons have to be highlighted for me to find them. But without a doubt the vita has better graphics, IMO the 3D is just a nice effect that helps in some cases and makes things a bit FUN. But, this should be in general discussion and not 3DS or Vita forums or else it could just lead to random vita fans strikes of walls of text about how their system is better or vise-versa.

    Powerhouse-wise, the Vita is superior. This did not stop far better games from coming out on the DS during the original PSP's run though.

    Something to keep in mind.

    wait, thats impossible, the parallax barrier does not allow any modification in the *vertical* plane, so it is practically impossible for the image on the top screen to appear as if its overlapping or covering the distance between the two screens,
    either this or there is sumthing wrong with your eyes as i have never experienced such thing
    EDIT: forget it i think i misinterpreted your post. my bad :P

    just read it again and not it makes no sense, in the first half he says that the top picture is soo 3d that it overlaps the gap,
    and in the next half he contradicts himself, nvm
