Have you played mobile games? Most of them are quite bad, plus phones lack physical buttons. I personally never got down with the psp or vita myself, I haven't had a handheld since GBA. I'm cool with crap games on my phone but I can understand why a gamer would want a dedicated handheld, whether they don't have a smart phone or they want something better in a mobile platform.

I even purchased most of my full vita games through psn like gravity rush that I can still access. but as far as home brew goes it is great on a vita and i was able to use cps emulators, snes9x, genesis, and mame. Just about most psp homebrew works with it. It sounds like I miss my vita and its true but I will probably get another one. It's still the best hand held out there but I think it could be better if game devs worked harder on the vita. But sony will never stop making firmware updates and it's a cat and mouse game just like iphones. So I usually don't mind keeping my console/devices on older cfw rather than constantly updating like the big companies want everyone to do.
i'm not saying anything specific about PS Vita or PSP. I'm meaning the whole hand-held devices.I mean when do you play on your hand-held device ? On long travels , long taxi rides , when you can't sleep you play a little on it. I'm saying you can pass these times with some games on smartphones. it's just my opinion.
I thought smart phone gaming would be fine for me, but the true inner gamer in me from years ago needed better controls for games like black ops 2. I was tired of losing on my smart phone when playing modern combat and hot shots golf. Also i think the controls for Gta Vice city for smart phones is a joke and turns an awesome game into a novelty at best.
I've taken my vita on plane trips, airports and vacations. I was still able to connect to psn while away and get some cod matches in. The vita is light enough to carry around in a small case and everyone knows ur playing better games on the ps vita.
I know that Vita kicks any smartphone's ass , as I said it's just my opinion and I still think it really isn't worth and all but if you've got some extra bucks then yea it's fine. On long trips I just listen to some good music while playing some stupid games ( Fruit Ninja , Angry Birds , Doddle Jump) they're games that don't require your concentration.
Anyhow , it's just a matter of opinions!
