Not a bad price for a device not even 1 month old.

And no GST/HST! That's a major point.

Yeah, very true....my only worry is if the unit shows up defective. The seller hasn't listed a return policy.

But shit is this ever tempting...

I messaged them via Amazon asking about defective units, or DOA ones.

If any customer has any issue they are more then welcome to return it to me within 30 days as long as the serial number matches and its in the same condition i sent the product in i will replace it. These units are not defective or used so there should be no issue. I buy all my itmes wholesale and that is how i can give such a great deal

I'd be paranoid about whether it had a screen defect or something. Cool deal though.

I call BS on them getting them "wholesale" so they can sell at good deals. I would doubt that even the large retailers can buy the hardware for much less than the full price. I'm guessing by wholesale he means they fell off the back of the truck *wink*wink*

Well if it does, I'm simply going to return it. I'll let you all know how this goes when it arrives.

Looks like it's back up to $244.94 now. A few too many people ordering at $200, I imagine.

Some seller on Amazon.com was selling Vitas for $210 today, sold out there too.

Sounded too good to be true. I wonder how much the Vita is to buy directly from Sony if you're a wholesaler.

Weird, glad you got your money back. If it was a scam you wouldn't have, maybe that guy's shipper really ripped him off.

The only problem is it shouldn't have been marked as shipped.

It pisses me off when people do that on eBay. I buy something and like a few hours later on a Sunday night I get an e-mail that my item is on my way. :roll:

Yeah the seller is getting hammered with poor feedback, with many people pissed about how it was marked as shipped when it really wasn't.

Well then the $199 selling price was unrealistic. Unless they're stolen of course.
