(laughs) Really wish I hadn't seen the Amazon Reddit post on their Vita bundle. I've been working on taking maximum advantage of G$ trade-ins, so I've got all my credit tied up there. Anyone think there's a chance to get Gamestop to match in-store whatever bonus Amazon will offer?

I'm watching some football and have seen a couple Vita commercials. One for Black Ops and a sponsorship ad talking about the CoD bundle being $200 at Gamestop for BF. Good to see Sony really pushing the Vita right now.

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

Josh said that Amazon is going to have a better deal than just the $200 pricetag, so I'm thinking maybe a $25 credit?

Link.


It's probably going to be a percentage off accessories promotion. I'd be good with that.

Same here I have seen both the cod and ac liberation bundle ads on tv last night about 4-5 times during a 2 hour period watching college football. While the wii u ads are MIA...

Wipeout 2048 and Hot Shots are both $20. Mortal Kombat was $10 at gamestop last month. Gamefly had MGS HD Collection for $18, Resistance for $10 and Lego Batman for $12. Lumines will be $15 this week on Amazon. Newegg had $12 off Ragnarok Odyssey with promo code. PS+ will debut this week with bunch of free games.

If you buy the Vita bundle now from Best Buy. They will price match it on Black Friday. You just have to Brave the return lines.

i did the exact same thing. i actually had about $60 in bby credit i was thinking about using for an amazon card, but since they were so late with their bf ad, i decided to just convert that to gs credit with some trade ins. :wall:

c'mon gs; don't let me down.

How do you figure that? BB isn't price matching until the 26th and they've never price matched on Black Friday ... in fact they close customer service on Black Friday as far as I'm aware.

Sadly, I have to agree ... really wanted to imagine myself grabbing a vita this year, but there's simply not enough value with the current bundles and a lack of AAA releases on the horizon. I'll buy one someday but not in 2012.

They really should have included an 8GB card in those bundles. The real problem with them (aside from the games not being very good) is that those 4GB cards are nearly worthless if you're going to download anything digital.

I'm ok with it though I got my AC Vita for $175 and sold AC and the 4GB card for a whopping $25 after ebay fees and shipping so paid $150 for the system which is good enough for me. Now just waiting on a 32GB card for $50 or less or a 16GB for $25 or so.

I don't agree.

You could download the PS+ selections of Gravity Rush and Wipeout 2048, and still have 1 GB left to spare. You could probably fit at least 2 average Vita games on a 4GB card, which is adequate IMO. Uncharted is probably one of the few exceptions since it is a larger game.

Since with this bundle, Sony is basically giving the game and memory card for free, I'm not complaining. It is worlds better than what normally comes with the standalone Vita...

Just wait and get that. I got mine "used" from Amazon Warehouse. They've been as low as $163 or so in good condition on AWD. Again though just wait for the $200 bundle since you'll know it's brand new and they're apparently throwing in something extra with it anyway. I may even return mine if whatever they add in is something good.

I don't agree.

I suppose "adequate" is a fair enough term. I'd just rather have something slightly more than adequate. If you dont do anything digital you'd probably be fine with it for quite some time. Any which way $200 for all that is a very good deal imo. It's worth $200 despite what so many people like to say about the Vita.

Though its not an exclusive you didnt mention one of the best games for the system. Virtues Last Reward is fantastic if you're into story. Also you left out a big one that is exclusive. Little Big Planet. Sly 4 is also coming.

I hope the Amazon deal is either a bigger memory card or LBP. Otherwise I'll just use my Gamestop credit.

The only one from that list I don't have is the MGS collection, i'm hoping to see a deal on nfs , lbp 2, and maybe ac3 vita versions.

Does anyone know if the Vita will be discounted online at $199? I live (literally) in the middle of no where (Wyoming) and none of the stores around have an AC Liberation Vita. I'll certainly go in on one if I can get it online.

This will be the last time I mention this, since a moderator unwisely decided to delete my thread on the subject.

The BF Vita deals are store specific, despite what you may have implied from Sony's blog post and press release. There is new evidence directly from PlayStation's VP of marketing John Koller.

He states: "most major retailers will have these deals, although they will get to choose which bundle they will put on offer. Check with your local retailer before you go to make sure they have the bundle you want."

Here is a question I asked on this page: "Many retailers are just advertising the Call of Duty Vita bundle at the Black Friday price, even though they also carry the Assassin’s Creed Bundle. Does that mean that only that bundle being advertised at the special price is being discounted, or will all the bundles be discounted anyway?"

He responded: "It will depend on the retailer – make sure to check before you go."

IMO that is the clearest evidence yet that these BF prices on Vita bundles won't be universal at all retailers. Anyone not knowing this ahead of time is likely to be confused and disappointed.

Dammit, Amazon has cemented my decision to purchase a Vita on Friday. I was going to wait until tax return time, but off I go to Best Buy to convert my fall preorder credit and used game trade gift card to Amazon credit!

I was tempted by Best Buy's $200 deal, but a better game, not having to go out on BF, and a mystery bonus makes it a real no-brainer through Amazon.

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.


So then, we'd actually be getting two memory cards, since the 4GB is already included in the packaging? That would be cool, but I'm skeptical.

Yes, I can't imagine that retailers would have all three bundles on sale and not advertise that fact.
