Purchase 2 select PS Vita games and get 1 free. Free game must be of equal of lesser value, while supplies last. Expires 2/25/12

Uncharted: Golden Abyss $49.99
ModNation Racers: Road Trip $29.99
Hotshots Golf World Invitational $39.99
Wipeout 2048 $39.99
Little Deviants $29.99


So i walked in today to GS and picked up the PDP Folio and started talking to the GS Employee, about how i'm waiting till Target's B2G! offer.. Well he then says "We are doing that now.." I said "Wait what?!" He says yeah B2G1 free on Vita Launch titles. So i proceed to pick out my games and get ringed up. It seems that he couldn't do it.. He was mistaken The promo doesn't start till Sunday (he pulled up the internal memo and showed me) but he said "Well i said it was valid now so what the hey.." And rings it up.

*Update 2* It seems that the deal is live on Gamestop.com. First party titles only alas. But this is NOT regional it's nation wide. seems that some managers don't have there Sh*& together to notify customers.. ah well.

*Update* It seems that some of you have been able to confirm this and see that it's "apparently" First Party Titles only.. Since my GS was willing to do the promotion early and i guess didn;t read the fine print LOL I got a YMMV but.. Here are the titles that are CONFIRMED so far..

Modnation racers
Wipeout 2048
Hot shots golf
Little deviants
Uncharted

Awesome deal. Would jump on it if I wasn't getting a $20 gift card and 15% (employee/redcard) off at Target. Maybe if I can't find the 3 games I want at Target.

Oh man if this company wide, I'm having all my receipts adjusted and getting a couple games for free! I have purchased Uncharted Golden Abyss, Blazblue, Army Corp of Hell, Katamari and Rayman Origins from Game Stop in the last week.

hopefully this works on the digital versions of Vita games as well since GameStop sells codes

I'm looking at Lumines, Army Corps... trying to figure out what I want for the third title. Holding off on Uncharted because I know it'll drop fast in the next few months after everyone trades it in.

Out of pure curiousity, with absolute no judgment, I must ask a question. Why do you prefer digital download over hard disk games? I am not trolling or starting a war. Also this question is coming from someone who downloads a ton of downloadable only games from PSN.

Rayman Origins is getting unbelievable reviews. Play the demo if you already have your vita.

Also Someone is saying it's first party titles only over on gamefaqs. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/62027...-vita/61986760 You may have hit a jackpot getting 3 non first party titles. Regardless I'll take advantage of it.

Always have Rayman Origins on the 360, played it pretty much all the way through. I'm not really interested in the home console to Vita port games. Great game though!

Theres a few coming out that I have no clue when they are getting released. I might check ebay at what games are holding values and just resell whatever I get for free to cut the cost of the two other games. I wish Lord of Apocalypse was coming out here.

I completely agree about Lord of Apocalypse and Blazblue would probably be a decent game to buy and resell because it's a pretty tough one to find... of course if you can find it.

Regardless of whether the Vita sells well, and I hope it does - I want to see some RPGs! - this is a great way to launch a system: instead of a pack-in game, do a B2G1.

Rayman Origins is getting killer reviews on the Vita because it's (at least what I've played of it) exactly the same game as you've played on 360. Graphically and gameplay wise.

since the OP was gone I'm going to provide a valid reason for this. There are 2 reasons I prefer digital downloads. One I don't have to change out any disks. The other reason is that as long as I keep my account I always have my game. Recently I lost my PSP which contained 2 games I was playing often. Jeanne D'arc is lost forever, but I just need to re-load Valkyria Chronicles II from my ps3. I tend to lose disks every now and then, but I very rarely lose an account.

There's also Backwards compatibility. None of my psp discs are BC, but my digital downloads are.

I will in a few years. For now there's no games.

Did you learn your lesson with the PS3? There weren't any good games for about 3 years.

And the PSP2 hasn't been modded yet, so why would I buy one then?

I'm planning on waiting 2 years.


THE THREAD TITLE SUCKS! CHANGE IT NAO!!!!!! pissed off at tc for lying thread title


Spoken like a true idiot, you wait your 2 years while we enjoy games in the present.
