Youtube user KureKureyon has conducted a test to show how the Nintendo 3DS compares to the PlayStation Vita with regards to battery life. The PlayStation Vita was running Uncharted: Golden Abyss while the Nintendo 3DS was running Monster Hunter Tri G. The Nintendo 3DS managed 2 hours 35 while the PlayStation Vita managed 3 hours 47.
stop posting about sony…PLEASE
PSVita owns 3DS this is no news! We already know that, 3DS is for kids who wants to play shitty Mario Kart or Luigis kiddy mansion like wtf? Only kids games, PSVita is for serious gamers and this video proves it. I’m sorry but Nintendo this year failed so fucking badly.
Troll somewhere else
I know right
Mario isn’t for kiddies… It’s a game for all ages. :D
Haha, because the PSP was so successful.
He didn’t say anything about the psp, though.
it was, unlike the ds which had a wider demographic than it, the psp sold a good 70m.
One, dickhead, Luigi’s Mansion isn’t even out yet, and two, Mario Kart games have always received great reviews from Gameinformer, Famitsu, Computer and Video games, etc. Now I admit the 3DS could’ve been better. And the games say 10 AND UP FOR A REASON YOU GOD DAMN FAGGOT! IF IT WAS MENT FOR “KDDIES”, IT WOULD FUCKING SAY “EC” FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD. RESEARCH BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH YOU COCKSUCKER.
I will kill you for trying to mock me. You will die very slowly while I fuck your mom in her eyehole while it bleeds and I feed of her blood.
Fuckin towel head go kill yourself suicide bomber.
ok wow wow wow
Have you looked right behind you within the last week?
That’s disgusting. While your “fucking” her eyehole as she bleeds, you’ll drink the blood meaning you’ll have to bend towards your penis and basically lick the blood off your penis.
Consider yourself dead too. I will come and get you. Be afraid, very afraid.
What a fucking fag. You give muslims a bad name.
Wanna kill me too? Come at me bro! Anywhere, anytime. Find me.
You will die today before 00:00. You will suffer no pain, consider yourself lucky… David.
Fail troll fails.
You’re a HUGE moron.
Just go and die. Even your parents would be happy about that.
You’re obviously a troll and a muslim hating bastard.
Seriously, everyone would be really happy if you just go and commit suicide.
Even God him self. Well, maybe not the devil because you would obviously go to hell and even the devil hates you, but not everyone can be happy.
Haha… you use military time!
Obvious troll is obvious
bitch do you wanna kill us!! facking kill you mother facker i consider YOU as dead!! ass hole. i really hope hell will take care of you BITCH LOSER FUCKER. FEAR ME I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE ASS HOLE. and remember to NEVER NEVER EVER TALK LIKE THAT YOU RACIST!! PS: LOSER
go to hell
if you really were a muslim you would never say that
its people like you that ruin the image of the muslims
they are kind people
not a dipshit like you
YOUR saying the truth.
He’s trolling saying he’s a Muslim.
They are kind people Muslims.
Seriously Terrorists are not real Muslims.
Go and kiss your God ass, your Trolling is pathetic.
marcos not only u dont believe at god u are the bigest troll and biger than that noname gye.
Fail troll is a fail peteriuss the troll.
Also god is bullshit.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch?
3DS sells more then Vita because Vita is CRAP
What has happened to the internet?
Because 3DS/hit is cheap. *Newsflash* people buy cheap shit, OMG! Look how no one wanted to buy it when it was selling at $250. At that price the Vita more than shows it’s worth it. Fucking fantards making up bullshit that 3DSi had longer battery life. SMH, losers…
Rage and cry somewhere else, bitch.
lol! you need a fcking PSVita to feel like a grown up! makes you feel like a man huh!? Yeaah, PSV is better than 3DS in every aspect, but that doesn’t give you the right to say a shit about anything
It’s not really better in every aspect. You’re forgetting the innovation of the 3DS compared the basic gaming style of the vita. They are just different consoles and shouldn’t even be compared.
By gaming style do you mean controls?
I meant in multiple aspects as the Vita uses buttons while the 3DS uses the touch screen with buttons and also, the 3DS has 3D.
But, isn’t the Vita touchscreen as well? It even has a back touchpad. It also has two analog sticks, whereas the 3DS only has one. They both have gyro sensors, which is great.
DO NOT reply to this person
DO NOT believe this person
DO NOT talk to this person
DO NOT post a comment about this person
just DONT DO ANYTHING, replys feed the troll, he hungers for angry replays so don’t give them to him
At least the DS has games. The Playstation on the other hand only has a few. I think the only good launch title the Vita might have maybe Uncharted or LBP or whatever(LBP is hardcore?)I’m just making a prediction, after that it may barely have anything good later on in the future. I exspected the 3DS battery to die first,but there’s so much shit put into the system especially the 3D.
ur right axl comon sichr cut it out we will go to a deeper sleep waching sonys fail franchises.(yawn)
Yeah. Just make a news page “mySONYnews”. Okay?
It’s relevant here because it’s a damn comparison between the two…
How is that not clear?
^This. Clever comment. Please fellows of Nintendo, we have to objectives, if PSVita has better battery performance, well, save money for Circle Pad Pro… and let Sony plug their Vita xD
you’re just encouraging these stupid flame wars. Again, their both good consoles! I don’t understand why you idiots have to either like Sony or Nintendo.
hes not saying this cos of one post, the vita has scraped its way in here before alone, with no relevance thats why some people are saying wtf
Everything thing posted on here about sony has had atleast some relevance to Nintendo. Even if they just posted how much the Vita sells in its first week, some people like to read about it, and Sickr posts things he deems relevant.
haha yh but i suppose he could argue that its to do with 3DS, but there are other times when i agree, like i dont give a crap about the vita blog, sony is a corrupt compan
Newsflash – look up Nintendo’s tactics during the Nes era and try saying Nintendo is a total saint…they’ve not been good themselves, and don’t all of this need white knighting!
absolutley tru! Nintendo is calling himself a saint because they’ve been releasing their consoles first, so every other console would be “copying” them, so nintendo would gain all the popularity… so far, they’ve made it work… Wii has been the top saled console… so I guess it’ll continue this way…
Everything you said is incorrect. Nintendo never calls itself a saint, it just doesn’t put itself in competition with the others, which is often misinterpreted as what you just said. And they don’t release their consoles first so they gain the popularity or so other consoles copy them, they release them whenever they deem the best time to release them.
Exactly. That’s why the 3DSi had a lot of design flaws upon its release (and still does) like: black screen of death, bad design flaws which causes the nub stick to permenantly scratch your screen or crack it — unless you add something like a cloth in between when you close it, which considering the price it was originally selling for is ridiculous for me to have to do. It also had d-pad cracking flaw, the loose top screen coming right off the 3DSi — which they had to cancel amazon sells for awhile. The 3D doesnt work UNLESS you play staring at it dead center & not moving it. I just turn it off bc it becomes more problematic than fun. Yup all this bc it wasn’t rushed out. BTW. The WiiU isn’t rushed out either…
Most of those things you just stated were only one or two offs. I have no marks or damaging to my screen or buttons doing anything unintended. And it wouldn’t be possible to create a 3D handheld without the small issue of having to look at the middle of the screen. You can look at it from pretty much any angle if you have the 3D on low. The only major problem with it was the black screen of death which had a patch released two days later. And atleast they fixed that so fast, unlike other consoles which have major problems like the red ring of death. And also, the Vita has had a few issues that I’ve noticed online but haven’t read into.
yea mate this is Nintendo news, you have another blog for sony
i hate sony.i wont go to that site.never!
is it bad if like sony and nintendo ?
Noo… get both systems if possible
WAS THE 3D ON?
My thoughts exactly. Also, what was the brightness setting, speakers or headphones, etc.
3D is on, you can see the slider. but brightness is another thing along with sound.
I also don’t think when it’s in sleep mode and charging, it reaches full charge (in my experience).
I believe he had the sound on maximum, used headphones, turned off Wi-Fi and used the highest level of brightness and 3D.
stop posting about the vita! your causing stupid fan wars >.<
He’s just posting the news, not the wars. It isn’t his fault if fanboys are dummy.
I don’t see this as news, more like trollbait.
That’s like saying a comparison between two presidents/prime ministers or whatever wouldn’t be news, but would be trollbait.
Wouldn’t the people like to know which system has the better battery life? I’m not saying I’m disagreeing with you, though. It’s news/trollbait. :D
guys, guys DONT REPLY TO TROLLS NO MATTER WHAT
Shut up FAG
Sickr I is gay for you.from peteriuss.
sichr ban that fake peteriuss!!!!!
I’d rather he ban the real peteriuss.
True dat bro.
In all honesty its not an even test. Vita cant do 3D so there should be a test with 3D off on 3DS to even it out. With 3D on the brightness is doubled
And the 3ds doesnt have a quadcore powering it which i assume, like the 3d on the 3ds, will drain the battery that much more. Why do we need a comparison about something we should already know by now? And that is the pspvita has a slightly better battery life.
I heard that the Vita’s battery life was worse from Initial reports. How about we turn on that 3G and compare?
yup yup i heard the same
they released the vita’s spec sheet and the battery life was better, only slightly
Why would you turn the 3G on when the 3DS doesn’t even have that? It wouldn’t be a fair comparison.
Why would they turn the 3D on when the Vita doesn’t even have it?
xD Guys, guys. Sickr doesn’t post these for wars, he posted it about NINTENDO 3DS! The title says it, the video has it, and it shows an aspect of the 3DS. Both consoles have their own pros and cons. I’m a Nintendo Fanboy, I don’t buy from anything BUT Nintendo. I still respect the other companies doing what they do. But it doesn’t matter about how long your system plays, or how the graphics look, because we care about the gameplay. Say what you want, but I enjoy playing my 3DS. If it’s too “kiddy”, that’s alright with me. I enjoy being kiddy. Especially when my family can get together and play Mario Party 8, or Wii Sports Resort during the holidays. You can’t do that with CoD. xD Sorry, but I don’t think grandpa would enjoy re-living a war. Anyways, like I said, it doesn’t matter if the system lasts 3 hours. I at least enjoy those 3 hours.
Because it’s the 3DS. It’s 3D. What’s the point of the 3DS when you don’t turn on the 3D?
I was just responding to the person who said “Why would you turn the 3G on when the 3DS doesn’t even have that? It wouldn’t be a fair comparison.”
yes, 3D program was indeed active.
Better than the iPhone
Ummm… yes. It’s scary when an iPhone/iPod can barely hit 3 hours with Angry Birds…
Ummm….No, I get about 5 hours of play with my iPhone 4 while playing Street Fighter IV Volt and/or MGS Touch.
Nice try fanboys. It’s obvious you have no idea what you’re talking about.
He’s probably talking about straight play through. I’d be surprised if you actually played street fighter on the iPhone that long
When you travel as much as I do you wouldn’t be so surprised.
And how high was your brightness? Because the brightness on the 3DS in the vid was on the highest setting. I know for a fact that an iTouch/Phone can’t hardly do squat with brightness all the way up.
I usually keep it set to 3 or less with power save enabled. I never keep the brightness on my iPhone higher than 1/4 of the way up with auto brightness enabled.
Uh what? I can watch videos on YouTube for 5 hours on one iPhone charge….
When used just for FB, twitter, Internet (no videos) texts and calls it last me a day….
I even have final fantasy tactics on my phone and that isn’t bad either.
Then again I have all my apps turned off while I’m not using them…..
Was the 3D effect on?
so not really a fair test since ps vita dosent do 3d, in that case he should of turned the the 3d of
The Vita has a quad core gpu, which the 3DS doesn’t have, that drains the battery more than the 3D in the 3DS.
You stole my name :(
The Vita doesn’t have two screens, which drains the battery more that the quad core gpu in the Vita.
So the Vita wins then. It has longer battery life.
In battery life yes. The system in general…too early.
I know… it’s too early to know… Anyway I like your gravatar. It looks like this D:
I’m liking the sony articles. Keep doing whatever you want. It’s your site.
I don’t think the 3DS was an accurate test as it was already on, where he powered up the Vita. I don’t think it fully charges while it’s on.
Well, as long as it has SOME battery life, I’m sure it doesn’t matter too much how much it has, right?
No one’s gonna have the 3D on that long though, you’re eyes would be killing
Umm, I never play my 3D games without it.
Nice try though…I love the 3DS but the battery life is crap compared to it’s predecessor.
That’s why you charge it twice as often as I. I play with it OFF so I can have less time having to charge it.
I’ve played with it on, and doesn’t have to be on. I just see it as a battery drainer. Now I just got the powerpak + so I can enjoy 3D games.
Right because the point of having a 3DS is to NOT play the 3D games in 3D.
Nice try though…
I play all my 3ds games in 2D and barly use 3D. I bought the game cause they were fun and are way more powerful then regular DS games. 3D is just a bonus to me. It’s not the 3D that sells the system, it’s the games. And to quote you,
“Nice try though,”
Exactly the point I wanted to make.
It’s like saying you bought the Wii to play Gamecube games only. It’s a feature, it doesn’t have to be used. I DON’T use it so I can play 5-6 hours, and not a measly 3. If you noticed in my post I said I will be using the 3D NOW that I have the powerpak +. So now I have 12 hours to work with instead of 6.
Umm, it’s not the same at all. Buying a 3DS to only play the games in 2D is like buying a Wii to play GameCube games.
Dude, total and complete analogy fail.
At the end of the day… The Vita still has the upper hand in battery life.
And at the end of the day, the 3DS has the major upper hand in innovation.
Sure, sure. Whatever floats your boat. ;)
You do know they’re talking about the battery life, right?
Liam…the Vita has so much going bad for it right now, its not funny. Better battery life? Ok good, but how about those bugs and glitches and that extra battery price tag.
I don’t envy your eyes. lol The Vita’s battery is crap too… like the PSP’s.
In the video:
-3DS dies at 2 hours 35 minutes.
-Vita dies at 3 hours 47 minutes.
-PSP dies at 9 hours.
Now tell me, how is the PSP’s battery life crap?
Cause it is. Ever owned an actual PSP? The thing dies in 3 hours of game time in reality and 4-5 days of being kept off. If you charge it and don’t play it in like 4-5 days, you’ll find the battery has died. The 9 hours was only done because the guy used a stamina battery pack that he bought. So essentially he cheated to make it seem like the PSP has a better battery but in reality, it actually has the worse.
I have a PSP 3000 Mystic Silver (Prince of Persia bundle) and I can confirm that the handheld won’t die if I charge it and don’t play it for 4-5 days. Hell, the battery icon was still full even when I didn’t play it for 7 days (battery in the system the whole time). And when I use it the battery lasts like I’ve charged it yesterday. When I play a game, it usually lasts 4-5 hours (medium brightness, sound nearly at full blast w/ earphones and wifi turned off).
Dang! Autofill of my brother’s name. Ooops.
Wow.. you’re lucky then. Cause after I bought a PSP I played it noticed it was about 3 hours long. Then asked friends how long they get out of their battery and they say the same thing. And this is after asking 3 other friends at the least. Funny part was later I found the system information on the PSP and even it said the estimated battery time was 3 hours so I couldn’t really argue with it. Either way it’s nowhere near the 9 hours the video is claiming without buying a stamina battery =/
That guy in the video is a cheater! Remove the stamina battery! :D
So the battery life of one device is only slightly less bad than the other. Brilliant. Although they both spectacularly outclass the awfulness of my iPod Touch battery.
yes the 3d was on as you can see in the vid
Just waiting for peteriuss faggot fanboy comment.
not homophobic at all.
No I’m not gay but my boyfriend is.
I wasn’t asking… but okay…
The difference is practically minimal guys. Don’t get all up in a hissy fit about him posting about Sony. Big deal it lasted like an hour longer. Woopdeefrickin’ doo.
Leave it to you to to use reason in a sea of fanboys.
An hour is alot. And im not a fanboy…..
Petros, Petros, Petros… I hate your fucking name, your faggot face and your smart ass comments. Who the fuck are you? Peteriuss’ alter-ego or what?
/A valid argument if I do say so myself./
I agree, is this the real peteriuss? If so looks like a real fag.
I don’t think that’s him… He has no grammar mistakes :)
One hour is a lot, IMO.
Try it with lower lighting, 3d off, and wireless off, then we can talk.
Idiot. Vita is probably also with max lighting, wireless/or 3G whatever on otherwise the comparison wont be valid.
uhm… no. Try again.
I thought that because of being much more powerful, Vita would have shorter battery life. Seems I was wrong…
So, that means the 3ds is a piece of shit right?
Oh no? Why would I come to that conclusion? Possibly because of this were the other way around you jokers would be declaring the Vita a failure?
Right? Their both good gaming consoles. Dunno why people are bitching.
finnaly someone with eloquence, they both great just buy both with unucharted and mario and have a merry gaming christmass!!!
You mean the issues they’re having with it now aren’t enough of a fail?
Oh mean problems like this?
You Nintendo kids need to get a life and stop fighting over pointless shit. both systems are great and worth owning.
Have you checked the date? No? Oh well, there’s already a system update which fixes that.
So what? His point was upon release the Vita has a problem so it should be considered a failure. Just like how the 3DS had its own problems but you idiot troll fanboys are too narrow minded and idiot to realize this simple fact.
problems that can’t be fixed with an update. keep up
You are the one who needs to keep up.
Another troll vanquished.
You sir are a troll assassin!!!
*sign* The console has problems (to me) that cannot be fixed through update. Seems your still to slow to keep up
uhmm…. just what did you sign?
There you go. Now shut up.
3ds can last up to 5 hours only powering an equivalent 2 screens. but of course you’d like to ignore that wouldn’t you. Its irrelevant anyway seeming as you can get longer lasting batteries
…..: Shut the heck up with the nintendo fanboyism. A real Video game player would respect every console and hand held. Fanboys complain about other consoles like 3 year olds.
Wow, he didn’t say anything to say that nintendo was better so there’s no need to call him a fanboy. He’s just stating that it would have less battery due to having two screens instead of one.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL troll harder. I actually want both but at the end of the day the 3ds can last longer. Is this relevant to me? no because the 3ds has a battery add on to last longer and so will the PSV
Also, there’s more settings on the 3DS that can be changed to increase the battery life on the 3DS. Brightness, 3D, wireless, Power Saver mode and battery add ons.
Hurry! Both of them absolutely suck! Now we can just worry about who gets better games.
I always turn on wifi and 3D to the max. Playtime usually last for around pathetic 3 hours. Much longer with DS games. :/
Yup, I think I had to charge my DSi maybe once every two weeks. I have to charge my 3ds every other day.
I charge my 3DS daily, but I also play with the 3D off. Seems you don’t play it enough.
– I only play with the 3D off so I can actually play it through out the day.
He doesn’t play enough yet he has to recharge his 3DS nearly every day? Dude you are so full of fail.
it depends on whether you turn off the system completely or put it in the sleep mode which is really a battery killer. i don’t play much everyday but still have to charge it like everyday
For it to be a fair comparison we need a new 3DS, a new PS Vita, and either have ALL of the features on or just the the features both have in common.
Either way, I get 4-5 hours on my 3DS and it lasts 2 days without charge with 2 hours of gaming on the bus. If the Vita can do better than so be it, but it in no way affects the relatively superb performance of my 3DS; much better than my iPod Touch, with 10+ hours on DS games.
Um….did you not notice that the 3ds used IS a new 3ds? Its the Zelda limited edition one that was just released. So….fail….
Jawknee, why do you not just leave?
You clearly do not know what you are talking about.
Do you always play with 3D on? Congratulations. You are an idiot. Your eyes will die so soon. 3D is mean to be used just for a little time.
Do you travel much? Where do you go? A Vetralla, a pialla???
Please, go away.
3DS is the best new portable console. Deal with it, troll.
I just left your moms house.
Okay, just to clear things up, THE 3D DOESN’T HURT YOUR EYES. Okay? Okay.
It can if you are under 6 years old. -_-
“3DS is the best new portable console. Deal with it, troll.”
No explantation as to why this is true? Automatically invalid.
That’s why I put up multiple criteria for it to be a fair comparison dumbass.
The next Pokemon game is for DS!! No one is really caring about this generation, even Nintendo.
Nintendo do not directly control pokemon games.
Also, pokemon games are made -per console-, they never shift the dev half way through, which is what makes them so fun.
Also, Im going to say: obvious troll is obvious.
They should make a 3ds pokemon soon though my friend or I will trade in for vita.
Of course, but would you of wanted them to stop development of one half way through XD?
yeah but the next pokemon game is a crossover not a main series game. gamefreak already said that the main series games are going to the 3DS using the same engine as XD
the new game is not a main series pokemon game in fact is a crossover, gamefreak said some time ago that the main series games will be in the 3DS using the XD engine or something like that
Am I the only one who sees the brightness on the 3DS was higher?
They were both probably used on max settings, but the 3DS’ screen must go brighter.
Why did Nintendo and Sony allow this to happen? Here they have a chance to reaffirm the dedicated handheld department from the likes of Apple, but what do they do? Kill battery life. That defeats the whole purpose of a handheld, unless you enjoy restricting yourself to playing with the gadget plugged into a power socket. Anyways, someone here made a dumbass comment about the iPhone lasting 3 hours. It actually last nearly all day. This is why Nintendo and Sony need to quit B.S.ing around
I’m pretty sure that people prefer more technologically advanced handhelds that last about 3 hours than going backwards.
Let’s be honest here I love the 3ds but the battery life is dog shit.
it’s sad to see that the 3ds has such a low battery life … even in ds mode with internet off it doesn’t last as long as the Ds … it’s sad because it is a freakin great system imo. even before any good games were released, 3ds already won for me because of the Ds support. I like nintendo’s style and philosophy compared to sony’s. Don’t worry I’m sure Nintendo will release another version with 2 analog pad and better battery life ;)
So not all to different.
Vita > 3DS also to the people, this is a 3DS related article.
“Vita > 3DS”
Battery wise, yes.
Size wise, yes.
Glitch wise, yes.
Price wise, yes.
Software wise? HELL NO!
By software you mean the OS or the games?
They’ve both had glitches, do the vita is not greater in that respect. And also innovation wise, 3DS is far superior, which along with sofware, pretty much wins it for me.
Yes they both have glithes but like I said, the Vita has more. Take the touch screen for example.
Ah, I read it wrong XD
¡Las PSP no duran tanto! ¿Qué PSP era? Shhii… En ese caso la mia vale hongo, dura no mas de 4 horas xD
no maaames!! era el ps vita weeey!!
1) was 3d on or off ?
2) were they using the circle pad pro. Because that requires the 3ds to be using its infrared receiver to decode the controls for
3) what was the brightness settings in each one?
4 ) for 3ds was wifi on. For psp. Was wifi and 3G on ?
Those things affect battery life as well.
Dear god, you could clearly see that there was no circle pad pro. Did you watch the video? It’s on top of the site in case you’re confused.
Was the 3D on?
I never play with 3D
ALSO MONSTER HUNTER 3DS USES MASSES OF POWER
yup it was on
SO IS UNCHARTED
I’m sure they have different batteries… 1300m to 2200m or whatever
3ds has a 1300mAh battery. The vita has 2300hAm….. So sadly we’ll have to wait for a die shrink and bigger battery for the next 3ds for 10+ hours
Either way, both have terrible battery lives. I suppose the extra hour+ for the Vita is nice, but either way, both are really poor. I can’t fathom that there wasn’t a better way to make the systems last longer. As portable devices, I’d have expected a longer charge on both parts, especially the Vita with the 3G capabilities.
For them to have longer charges, the price would’ve gone up considerably as there would have to be much more powerful batteries.
i found the test rather interesting since i haven’t really researched a lot of detail about the ps vita i think the point of this video was just a friendly test to see the battery life of each respective systems. heck i haven’t seen anyone else do a comparison yet on the two so this was pretty cool. was funny to see older gen outlast the newer gen too, though that was expected to happen.
Meh… Best handheld can’t be the best without some setbacks. Oh well. :)
Everybody does know that Uncharted disables the wifi and 3g, right?
IF YOU LOVE THIS COMMUNITY AND STAND AGAINST RACISM
BAN pissed off muslim!
In other news…. HAPPY HANUKKAH!!!
An hour longer. No difference…
Ummm big difference? Have you played the 3DS much at all? The convenience of a dock charger does NOT make it more convenient to charge it, if what you want is to use your 3DS away from home for a couple of days..It always feels waaaaay too soon for the battery to run flat..even if you turn all settings down. And I charge mine just as well as it is looked after. I would agree that it isn’t worth running out to buy a Vita so I can enjoy a couple of days without a charger mind..
Don’t get technical. In the end, it really is only just an hour longer. They’re still gimps compared to last handheld gen’s battery life. There’s no reason to whine over something so insignificant in the long run.
But still, 1 hour is still pretty long.
With power saver mode alone, it adds about an hour and by turning the brightness to 3, the 3DS easily lasts 5 hours. Oh, and with wireless off, it lasts a decent amount of time.
As you can see in the video, the notice that the network functions have been disabled appears in the upper left corner. Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s913ynjZb4&feature=related
At 3:09, you can clearly see that it says the same thing, this time in english. So the Vita was in fact connected to the internet, otherwise the notice wouldn’t appear.
the vita and the 3ds are two totally different consols made by two totally different companies for two decidedly different demographics. So why compare them at all?
Ermmmm…they’re portable? Aiming to sell to the wider market? Idiot.
Yet look at Nintendo’s sales over the last few decades and they don’t consider any other gaming company as someone they must defeat. If anyone’s the idiot, it’s you.
And now Pachter will yell.
3DS For The World (Even If It Lost)!
It Died Quicker Because It’s So Much More Epic :)
That’s a stupid excuse. :D
oh wow it lasted an hour more than the 3DS big deal.
It is a big deal.
Under 4 hours? Thats horrible for both systems.
HTC has horrible battory life to it’s a new phone.
WHY DOES BATTORY LIFE SUCK ON NEW TECH?
I hated his face since the very first moment I happened to have the cursed fortune of looking at it, as for Peteriuss, what the fuck is wrong with that loser’s mind, I don’t want to hate, but I do hate him so heartedly!!
Ok, I’m going back to stare at Petros’ face trying to find a psychological answer to ‘their’ behaviour…
It’s not really a fair comparison anyway seeing as both systems are rather different. The 3D component of the 3DS is the real crux to how this really isn’t a fair way to compare the two systems.
I know right? The fact that the 3DS has to provide energy for the 3D screen AND the touch screen really gives the test(s) more variables. Also, my original 3DS battery has about 750 hours in it and it STILL plays at up to 5 hours (I play at the lowest brightness and with the battery saving thing on) I think the tester might have played the 3DS at the 3rd brightest setting but I don’t know about the battery saver setting.
The Vita has a quad core gpu which the 3DS doesn’t have, that consumes more power than the 3D effect on the 3DS.
And you still ignored the fact that there’s an extra screen on the 3DS.
… And that results in the 3DS having a shorter battery life.
This is an amazing website. Very up-to-date and informative,
But I sorry gotta say, the community here is fucked. I hate reading the comments and a rarely do anymore.
Oh great, another Sony news, you only post this news to make Nintendo look better even if it have nothing to do.
Stop making this news of Sony and make the site of what it is, Nintendo News, and for Christ sake stop replying that Muslim dumbshit, he’s just a troll who have nothing to do than insult with his pathetic trolling, and if he’s not trolling, wow, that’s really sad.
In the long run, things will change for the better. No one likes this, keeping in mind..author of the blog didn’t run the test himself, it is still relevant news that was performed by someone else. It is a very current blog for the sole reason that everyone can TRUST what happens. Regardless to whether the source is good or not, this blog is honest. So fricking what if there is shit going on between fans, there are faaaaar worse places than here for all that nonsense..
Sooooo…. was the vita running on low settings wifi Off like in the offical tests? … also was it running in 3D… also was it powering 2 screens?… also… yeah…
I guarantee… that if someone was actually playing the games the test would be different … for one thing… the PSP having to load a screen would kill the thing so fast with it’s moving parts…
Comparing 3DS and PS Vita is like comparing apples and oranges. I definitely do not care which one has a longer battery. It’s all about the games. I would rather have both than to take sides.
@sickr Can you block Pissed off Muslim he’s trolling everywhere.
did you see??? the guy in the video………………………had………………………………………. both handhelds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why? beacause he is areal gamer. you see nintendo is my favorite company but I would love to have a PS Vita and I own a wii an xobox 360 a playstation three a 3DS and all their predecesors. so yes, a gamer doesn’t love an specific company but it loves VIDEO GAMES
I’m surprise no one finds this kind of fishy! Regardless of what system has better battery life, this is just weird.
I can’t speak for the Vita since I don’t have one, but the 3DS? WTF? This “test” only shows the systems sitting there doing nothing. If anyone has played the 3DS, you would know that it can go over 2 hours and a half in 3D with wireless on and brightness on max, and that is while playing a game. You mean to tell me the 3DS on this “test” only managed 2.35 hours while just sitting there doing nothing?
Again, it doesn’t matter what system lasts longer; the fact that both the Vita and the 3DS only got that far while doing nothing is just fishy.
Btw, I heard that the wireless on the Vita turns itself off with certain games like Uncharted. Just saying.
All you guys arguing about whats better need to get laid cuz I see you have nothing else to do other than think of what’s better
I think everyone is ignoring the real winner here the psp
so basicly what you telling me is that because they both havea battery life of under 4 hours both of their battery lifes are crap? well theres something the 3ds can move ahead with because for 19.99 you got you self at leaste an hour over the vita’s with a battery pack or GUESS WHAT you can plug you system in while you play infinate battery life ftw
The Vita also has a battery pack that you can buy. ;)
whats it called??
For future reference
I konw the 3ds has the power pak +
Wow, people. Hasn’t momma taught you all not to feed the trolls?
I like how people are trying to find excuses why the Vita’s battery lasted longer.
Guys, deal with it. The video shows clearly that the Vita lasted longer. So yeah, there’s no reason to try to deny it, it is how it is. Just because you’re a fan of the 3DS it doesn’t mean it has to be the very best thing that ever existed in universe. As a fan you should be able to take defeats.
I mean, come on… It is a fact that the Vita lasted longer – Deal with it.
I like both of the systems and I gotta agree with some people here that the 3DS’ battery isn’t lasting long enough. And to the people saying that 1 hour difference isn’t enough.. Did you think about how many things you can do within 1 hour in a game ? I did, and so I came to the conclusion that it sure is a huge difference. That’s just my opinion.
I’d like to know the settings of the systems. Monster Hunter 3G allows wireless, but Uncharted, as reported by people who bought it, turns off wireless.
I own a 3ds, so I’m going to call bs on this test. My wife got me the 3DS for Christmas and on back-to-back nights of this 4 day weekend off from work, I logged 5 hour playing sessions in. So, deal with that. Everyone knows that the specific games selected and the configurations chosen in the “so-called” test were designed to build-up hype for the Vita which suffered an embarrassing 78% drop in sales during the Christmas shopping season in Japan (and yes, Christmas is a huge deal for retail in Japan’s shopping year). Sony fanboys have been trying to deflate steam from the 3DS which has moved over 4 million units already and had an impressive Christmas sales season. At the gamestop I was in before Christmas, the Mario 3D bundle packs were sold out, there were only 2 Zelda Special Editions left and the guy in front of me on line bought 2 of the colored 3DS’s for his kids. It begs the question, if you like Sony and Vita so much, why are you surfing a Nintendo website to check the 3DS’s battery life??
