So, fellow CAGs, should a "very good" condition of SFxT come with the outer box, the arcade cabinet piggy bank, and the artbook? I just got my copy without those items, and am going to return it either way, but was wondering if I should be expecting these things for the condition I got it for, or if I should expect the items for a "like new" condition instead. Thanks.

EDIT: Not going to dispute the condition with amazon btw, 'cause that would be kinda douchey
EDIT 2: The special edition, not the normal one, sorry

Heads up, the price of the vita memory cards are dropping like a dollar every other day (32 GB mostly). Currently the price is at $87.

The $187 sat there for quite some time. As well as the $162. I almost grabbed the 162 but decided against it.... for now.

It should according to their guidelines for a video game to qualify for "very good" condition. It does happen with special editions though. They don't seem to always notice/care. "Like new" sometimes means it comes with nothing extra and "acceptable" can sometimes still come with everything.

What's the consensus on FF X-2? People snagging it? Didn't jump on the BB deal since I would've had to buy the coupon and pay tax. It would just sit in my backlog particularly since I still have to play XIII...but the temptation is always there .

Just received my LN Vita today. It came with the AR Cards and manuals except the usb cable/adapter. I was offered a $56.25 refund for the mistake on their part. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Whenever I buy CEs in Good or above condition, I expect all major elements of the item (except for DLC or anything downloadable) to be there. Now the condition of said items may vary, but I would have no problem returning (or hitting up CSR for an additional discount) if any major elements of a CE/SE were missing. Luckily, I've ordered quite a few and never had a problem.

In your case, I could see your Very Good SE not having the outer box only if the description said "Item may come repackaged" or something like that when you bought it. As for the Piggy Bank and Artbook, I would definitely be expecting those in a Very Good condition CE/SE.

I don't think you're being unreasonable if you send a polite e-mail (or chat) with CSR noting the items that weren't included with your purchase. If they offer you an additional discount and it's a number that you're comfortable with, take it. If not, just send the item back. That's by far the best thing about AWD for me: there's virtually no risk with these purchases. If you're not satisfied for any reason, send it back.

is there any benefit to getting the 3G Vita over the Wifi Vita? I mean besides getting an 8gb memory card. I don't plan to use the 3G (already pay for internet on my phone). Just wondering because someone on craigslist is selling 24 (yes 24) 3G Vitas for $210 each brand new sealed but I already ordered my Wifi Vita from AWD

If the prospects of getting the Novella version New for $21.xx (that's including coupon/mag and tax) weren't enough to get you to pull the trigger, then I'd probably just hold off for now. No point in buying a Used version of the game for more money just to have it sit in your backlog. Eventually, you'll probably see it for $20 new somewhere anyway.

Although, to be fair, this is coming from someone who has zero interest in the game, doesn't plan on playing it at all, and still bought the PS3 Novella version during the BB sale just because I have a lotta credit there and thought it was a pretty good deal...

None that I can think of. I think 8gb card is the main reason why people go for the 3g model.

Play through Final Fantasy XIII first. It is much longer, and more polished. In fact, think of the two games the same as you would for FFX and FFX-2. The epic adventure, and then the crazy spin off.

That said, XIII-2 is a very enjoyable little RPG. It's just I think for anyone to really have a good time with it, they should familiarize themselves with the original game first. The continued story doesn't make any damn sense, but it's nice being familiar with the locales and characters, and the overall personality of the world. XIII-2 will regularly be ~$20 by the time you finish the original game.

And I've got a nifty review for XIII-2 in my signature if you're still curious.

Hope that saved you money. But if you do eventually pick it up, make sure to get the Mass Effect armor DLC =]

you can watch videos or read wiki's to get the story. almost every review out there says FF13-2 is far better than FF13 in almost every regard. FF13 is more likely to turn someone away from the games if anything.

XIII was awful. XIII-2 is not as terrible, but still a sequel to an irrelevant game.

Was gonna post a Vita, but it's been bought already.
