Sony has tried to stop hackers, but have only hurt their sales and inconvenienced their PAYING customers. I'm tired of their constant firmware updates to bothe PS3 and Vita. The criminally overpriced memory cards for the Vita are a huge reason a lot of consumers skip it in favor of the 3DS.
I traded my Vita in for a 3DSXL and have never regretted it. The 3DS even plays my old DS games and I don't have to repurchase them like Sony makes you do with the old PSP games.
