I just scored a Disgaea 3 vita ($22), lego harry potter vita ($6), and Sly collection ($15).


Oh god damnit. I've been trolling for a Disgaea 3 Vita after the last one got bought out from under me while I was in checkout.

Thanks DealSeeker, you are like a deal recon guy. Anyone have opinions on xcom or need for speed?

Thanks! I have not yet picked up Xcom so can't comment on that but NFS is like Burnout in NFS universe. Very arcade like and fun.

I'll download the demo for xcom. My backlog might be too big anyway, maybe someone will buy it so I stop thinking about buying it.

Actually, for the controller, what is the meaning of like new and very good? I think they can not check the battery life inside. How do they define the condition? To see whether the button is loosed or not?

I'm guessing the analog sticks or the buttons might be in worse condition than the others.

More so based on the packaging (dings, bend, crease, etc). Anything from very good to like new is a close to a safe bet (some rare instances it hasn't been). Amazon grades items from acceptable, good, very good, to like new and are usually pretty accurate if not exaggerating when describing some of the "flaws". For more here is the quote from OP:

"Usually, games are re-shrinked wrap and almost in perfect condition. Any game i have personally ever bought has in like new condition. However, some people have reported that games were scratched with stickers on the insert. Consoles are also usually reported in like new or new condition with box damage. Rarely, a console may be missing a key component such as a power brick. Games listed in "acceptable" condition likely have very beaten up cases, or are missing cases, and are in not so great condition, but generally have a working game disc."

Thank you for your detailed explanation. In my opinion, I do care so much on package for controllers. The most important is whether the buttons do not loose and all keys a workable. For battery life, I think it is gambling.

Actually, I seldom buy good on AWD because I always miss it. Hopefully my games in good condition looks good. Hope they do not replace a blu ray case to store the disc and damage the cover art...

Best scenario, it is flawless. Good scenario, it is dinged due to packaging being bent out of shape but works fine. Worse case scenario it does not work properly then you return it to Amazon and stakeout for another one.

I can tell you this much that I got one couple of months ago listed in acceptable condition and when I got it the only thing flawed about it was the packaging (the box was torn at the ends and the plastic clamshell was bit bent out of shape). However, the controller was brand new. I am still using it to this day. Only one way to find out if it is worth your money and that is inspect it first hand and use it. Good luck!

Yeah, Unlimited. Buy Two Get One, but I tend to look at that as each game being 1/3 of the total paid. That way, say, I can look at the other one I'm "paying" for without going 'oh god why did I spend that much for that game."
