    If you are looking for a non violent games the 3ds is the way to go. At launch ps vita will only have 2 or 3 non violent games. While the 3ds is going to have 10 or more and more to be announced at the nintendo conference. The vita is going to be a shooter concentrated console while the 3ds is going to have a refreshing mix of games. From what you are saying the 3ds seems like the console for you. I am going to purchase a 3ds and eventually a ps vita once the price drops I would get the 3ds now and if you are still interested in a vita wait for a price drop don't get it right away.

    seriously, neither.

    vita is the successor to the psp, and we know how well the psp did. it was a colossal flop. i don't know how the vita can be any better. come on, who's the idiot who thought it would be a great idea to include the touchscreen on the back of the vita?

    i wouldn't get the 3ds either because of the lack of games. i think 3d is still too new for people to accept. another problem is that nintendo still hasn't embraced online gaming. apple has shown that portable gaming is here to stay, and it can be profitable. the 3ds should have more online gaming.

    the good thing going for the 3ds is that it can play ds games.

    To give you the pros and cons of a system that isn't out yet really isn't possible. All I can say is the graphics and abilities of the Vita will be far superior to that of the 3DS. To get games for the Vita you will need a PSN account and you will need to get a PSN card or use a credit card to add funds to your virtual wallet. Then you choose the game you want and if you have enough money it will be yours. It will be store on the Vita's internal memory or a memory card if the Vita will be using them.

    This is an excellent console I love the new analogue stick, it makes gameplay much easier i intend on buying one soon.The Nintendo 3DS is the latest handheld gaming console from Nintendo with a real 3D gaming experiance without the need for any 3D glasses! While viewing the units screen head on, provides a great 3D gaming experiance however if you turn you head slightly to the side while looking at the screen causes a ghosting effect.

    I wouldn't get the 3DS, the game library for it sucks and the 3D screen is garbage.
