The games that I'm most looking forward to the most on the 3DS are Monster Hunter, Ace Attorney 5, SMT4, Ex Troopers, Bravely Default, Fire Emblem and Castlevania.

It's funny seeing you deem the 3ds as 'kiddy', yet the library is filled with hardcore titles.Seriously, grow up, Vita owners.
Most successful console to date:

Sony needs to drop the other media capabilities of the Vita and focus on what it was made for, a gaming device. Every other feature it tries to pull off just falls flat compared to even the cheapest of smartphones. The browser is weak, the music player only recently was able to even import playlists, skype, YT app are all better elsewhere. The cameras? blurry mess.

I actually think the system is worth the $250 but the memory cards sure as hell aren't. Ultra slow performance (over 30min to backup 4GB to PC lol!) for wallet burning prices. The screen and controls are the best in class but if Sony keep up their current course it will all be for nothing.

A smartphone does everything else better but gaming than a Vita.

A special mention to Playstation Mobile, it is a complete and utter joke. The dev kit Sony has put out for PSM pales in comparison to any other application/game SDK out there. Documentation is extremely poor and in some cases still has the original Japanese language names/descriptions on an English SDK.

Then you get to its performance and realize that PSM is running in a gimped VM. No real access to the hardware under the hood, no access to the file system. All of these easily accessible on iOS/Android. Sony hasn't got a clue.

Slash the price in half. Include a memory card and game
if you disagree with my opinion, it is because you have brain damage.

Attract the core games with rpgs
Attract kids and fans with licences (Naruto, Disney among other...)
Attract curious and bored gamers with original titles like Katamari were at their time.

Sony cares more for the successful console (ps3) than the Vita for the end of the year, maybe next year, Sony has already announced they'd relaunch the Vita next year with the drop price, new games will be annouced along.

Quite true. In comparison the Vita library is very broad and immature.

Also, the Vita will never sell like the 3DS. It'll probably take a year for it to start selling like the PSP if they're able to give a damn.

It needs a better game plan, price drop, free memory card, games. At the minimum
