    I didn't have any issues with it, but I didn't play it as much as the others did when we had one of these. The biggest issue for us was the limited number of titles that were available for it. I think that if they put out more titles...and maybe they did as DLC, then it would be a better buy. But for now, it just seems limited, even though it is probably one of the most advanced handhelds on the market today.

    I can say the light lineup was the main issue. It wasn't all that uncomfortable though.

    I've been hearing of a light lineup up games. Is it like a reverse of Wii U and 3DS where the handheld is getting more attention only in this case the consoles are?

    You may want to look into buying a controller shaped grip. There are lots of designs out on the market, and I don't think they are very expensive. I've also come across a good amount of reviews saying that it's a pretty good accessory to have, and it does seem like it.

    I've actually held and played on it for a while as a demo, felt very comfortable to me, maybe you just have really huge hands, ever think about that?

    I'm not having this issue, it's probably the most comfortable handheld I've ever played.

    I wouldn't say it's uncomfortable but I would say that it feels initially bigger that one would think. I was surprised when I held my first vita due to how solid and big it felt. The horizontal orientation has a lot to do with it I think. After all, we're all so used to the gameboy's vertical orientation.

    I find it awkward and it really puts stress on my left wrist which is messy due to a work accident. At the time I bought it the wrist was fine but now it feels worse due to the Vita. I am not into handheld games anymore so I am selling it.

    Its uncomfortable because its small, and that super tiny joystick is hard to use, very uncomfortable indeed...

    I absolutely hate the Vita's rear touchpad. I can't hold the Vita without accidentaly touching it, and in games like Borderlands, where the touchpad is actively used, it really messes me up.

    I don't mind the Psvita so much and it felt just sort of comfortable when I played it for more than 1 hour. Compared to the 3ds xl, I think the PSvita is so much better in that regards because I find the edges to cut into me too much in the 3ds xl. I just have the problem with the touchpad too. I find myself to touch it way too often which is really annoying at times.

    It really depends on how long that I am playing for. I did feel uncomfortable with it after and extended play, generally my hands just didn't seem to have the right configuration to the controller.

    I kinda do have to agree that it is a bit uncomfortable when playing the Vita. I say "kinda", because it really does not affect me that much, but the issue is still there. I tend to use a silicone case, which not only protects my Vita, but adds a little support when handling.

    I don't think that it is uncomfortable. I think that you just have to get used to actually holding it. I have both the regular psp and my husband has the ps vita. I have found that I had to get used to holding both of them to play, because I was so used to holding game controllers on the console or playing on the PC. Sometimes it is just something that you have to get used to.

    I've had serious issues with my hands when playing Vita for any extended period of time. I love the thing so I had to buy some paddles/handles that attach to the Vita and give me a better more comfortable grip. Getting older definitely made the pain worse but with the handles attached I don't have any issues. You can find em easy on gamestop or amazon.
