I've never owned any iteration of the DS hardware. My last handheld that saw any play was the PSP, and even that mostly collected dust outside of FF Tactics. I thought when I bought a Smartphone a couple years back that would be my handheld gaming, but those games just don't do it for me. I need meaty games, not kitschy games. One other important point is I'm already a PS Plus subscriber for my PS3, so the Vita comes with a handful of free games for me.
What to do and why?
