No need to let those anti-(console/handheld) comments get on your nerves. Usually, such gamers can't be reasoned with so what's the point?
I got myself a white Vita (Amazon BF deal) b/c I wanted to (re)play some RPGs such as Xenogears (my all-time PS1 fave), earlier installments of Disgaea & Persona (never had a PSP) and, of course, P4G. RPGs are very time-consuming so that makes the Vita a good investment in my book.
As for 3DS, I do like its optional 3D effect. It's pretty cool having two visual styles (with or without 3D) without the need for special glasses. It's just a feature (of many) that makes 3DS more fun than DS.
Anyways, happy gaming!
