Except, we do know that Best Buy does carry the AC bundle, and I'd be stunned if they'd be ok with only getting part of the discount promotion. But, we'll see ... These things are always a bit cloudy until the day.


I got a email response back from that author of that article, he states that he got the info directly from Sony's PR team. Here is the email:

"I received the retailer-specific information from Sony's PR team in an email yesterday.

Hope this clears things up."

Posted this in the amazon thread, but it may as well go here too.

Amazon will have a different/better Vita Assassin's Creed bundle:

note that if you buy from amazon and you live in cali, they hit you with a $6 california recycling fee on top of the tax.


Edson pointed out in the AMZ Warehouse thread that we're not supposed to be charged that $6 fee fyi. You can argue against it.

Really? So I buy and pay now, and argue about this $6 with them later?

but it's for the Vita. :lol:

I don't know what else they could tempt me with. I have a 32gb mem card and all the good games for the system. Persona 4 Golden is about the only extra that would hook me at this point.

Damnit! I don't know if I should get the Vita or a 360. I would like a Black Vita but I don't want COD. I'll just wait for a price drop on the Vita since it's sales are lacking. :cry:

My money would be on a larger memory card. If they toss in a 16GB that would cement the deal as pretty spectacular for someone who DOESN'T already have one.

Can you use more then one memory card on the vita? I know you can only use one account per memory card but, lets say i have a 4gb that has some PSone games installed on it, then had an 8gb one with other PSone games. Would I be able to easily swap between the two?

Noooo, I just bought the regular AC Vita bundle for $175 off Warehouse Deals. If they add anything else or discount it further I'm going to have to return this one already. He says nothing specific though, so maybe he's just saying you should buy it from Amazon because he works for them.

Since it was announced Amazon would have it for $200 anyway, I was just going to try and get it from them - I mean, it's a Vita, not Wii Hiking for Kids, so I hope it will last longer than 10 seconds. If it is indeed a better overall package, so much the better.

No I'm a little OCD and I like everything to be uniform. Electronics = black; wood furniture (TV Stand, Book Shelves, etc.) = expresso

I just think having your TV, receiver, speakers, game consoles, cables (HDMI, Component, speaker wire) satellite/cable box all one color looks sleeker.


Nice job self-diagnosing yourself with the wrong condition...

You have OCPD not OCD.

Are the gamestop white vita bundles gonna be in-store only or also from their website?

And if gamestop usually sells black friday hardware/bundles from their website, does anyone know of possible shipping codes? the only one i know for sure is "saver" and that one is hit or miss.

This articles implies that Amazon will have the AC vita bundle for 200 on Black Friday.

"Amazon and GameStop will be the exclusive carriers of the Assassin's Creed III: Liberation bundle, while gamers in the market for the Black Ops Declassified bundle will need to shop at Best Buy. Lastly, the Lego Batman 2 PS Vita pack will be available only at Target."


There is no implying look at the black friday thread. Also look at the Sony Blog post for the deals.

"The Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified, and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes PS Vita bundles will be available for $199.99 (MSRP)* on Black Friday and Saturday only. Here are the details (check your local retailers for availability):"


Check your local retailers for availability says it all. Not all stores are going to sell the bundles for the BF price of $199.99. You said it Amazon and Gamestop will sell the ACL bundle, Best Buy and I think Wal-Mart will have the COD bundle, and Target gets the Lego bundle.

I would love to see otherwise, but don't expect the other stores to sell the bundle that is not listed in their ads for the BF friday price.

I expect the knowledge of the bundle credit came to retailers after they finalized their ads, which are done weeks in advance. I'd place a bet on Amazon and Wal-mart both having the bundle deal. However, we'll know for sure shortly! Best to keep eyes open.

Surprisingly Walmart doesn't list a Vita deal at all, just the $199 PS3 bundle...

half of the equation is correct; now you still need an affordable memory card.

Dont know but I think that only Gamestop and Amazon are running a deal on the AC bundle. Gamestop for $200 and Amazon with at least a slightly better deal than that.

Worried about dirt and blemishes with the White Vita, but if it's a good deal, I might jump on it.
