If you were to compare with the games then a phone would be more "childish" because it's got more casual games.
When did "childishness" come into this conversation? On the contrary, age has quite a lot to do with it. With age comes responsibility... and between paying bills, doing house work, working full time, taking care of children, etc. we value the free time we have more than most. The spare time we do have to game is not generally on the go, but rather a few hours when sitting in the living room, or a few minutes to bust out a game of Angry Birds.
I think what you mean is "maturity has nothing to do with this", and I'd agree, however no one is arguing that point in this thread. If I didn't have all the responsibilities I have in my life, and had tons of free time in the day, I'd love to own a Vita.
So it all just boils down to what you rather play with or what types of games you want to play with. See, people need to get that mentality out of their head. Like the console player vs the pc player. If you look at it, it's all just a different way of playing. It's just what suits you.
Which is the point we've been making. This isn't phone vs. Vita. My phone doesn't compete with a Vita game-wise. But what I need my phone to do, it does, and it does well.

We are discussing topics that are extremely relevant to the source material. This has been a mature debate since the thread was cleaned, so there is no reason why this thread should be locked.Edited by Code-Red - 2/13/12 at 6:42pm
