On our take, we’ll be opting for the much latest PSVita since it’s much faster, larger screen with higher resolutions, classic controls with now dual analog joystick,  integration and compatibility-wise Vita got our hands down. Besides, we just thought that 3Ds throw a gimmick for that ’3D’ thing, and we’re not just the only one saw that.
