The PS Vita is made for gaming, and is a portable games console. It has good, hardware controls which make it suited to serious gamers.
The iPad is completely different. While games do look stunning on the retina display, if you are looking for serious gaming, touch controls will annoy you. For great looking, casual games, the iPad is brilliant though. You will find some games which have full ports between console and iPad, such as The Walking Dead, and GTA III, but these are rare exceptions.
Games are of course cheaper on iPad, and expect impressive retina graphics in the upcoming FIFA 13 for under $10. Still however, you'll be troubled by touch controls if you want to spend along time gaming.
Let me know if you have any more questions, have a nice day,

Hi Nathan et al,
I won't probablly be spending lots of time playing a particular game. Let me tell you the games i had with my old iPad 2: Infinity Blade, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Soul Calibur & FIFA12. I bought them because they are really good games. They are not the casual games that someone might have. And i believe all of them (sana Infinity Blade) are available on the Vita.
I would say i would not be playing them for an hour each. If i do play them for an hour each then it owuld just be one game at a time e.g. Soul Calibur in the morning, Infinity Blade in the afternoon, etc.
I'm aware games are relatively cheaper with the iPad2/3 but i'm trying to determine as someone who has PSP 2 years ago and a PS3 a few months ago (i sold them all due to money) would i have more "choices" (of more games) and better game "control" with a console like PS Vita or as someone who would feel having a tablet as a gaming machine to get an iPad?
