Uncharted and Wipeout are free with PSN+, just as a FYI.

Good point however if they are retail copies you should be able to resell or trade them for $30 total (give or take a few $) until people actually start taking advantage of PS+

Are you serious? You get an 8GB memory card and two $20-30 games, plus optional 3G which is something you cannot upgrade. How are the Black Friday bundles better?

With the amazon bundle you got:

Two $40 games
3 months of PS+ (Giving access to 6 more games)
4GB Memory Card
Exclusive White Vita
$20 cheaper.

I would say the Black Friday bundle was better.

Amazon's bundle was $20 less, included 3 months of PS plus ($18 value), a voucher for PS All stars ($40 value, just released), AC3: Liberation ($40) and a 4GB card ($10 less retail value). I'd say that's better.

This is an excellent deal, coming from someone who was scouring the net for Vita deals and finally caved on Amazon's BF bundle.

Cheers to anyone who picks this up. I probably would have gone this route had I missed out on Amazon's.

I think most people just wanted the vita for cheap. The bonuses were bonuses, a $180 vita was pretty good. I doubt most want 3G. The bonus games were better/more valuable than this bundle anyways.

This bundle is better if you want 3g and a 8gb mem card.

I would rather use the extra money to get a 32gb card.

Plus "while supplies last".

I'd say both bundles are a great deal. It depends on what you want more. I can definitely see the argument that the 3G and memory card make the AT&T one better but I wanted a white one and on Amazon I don't pay tax or shipping.

The AC bundle was a great deal but I prefer a black system for some reason. Yeah fingerprints but the white one does not frame the screen in the same manner and is somehow distracting. That almost made sense...

I only know about in store I don't know if it'll be online. As for how I know, I work for them.

Wow, still $299 online? Where's the deal? I agree with others here, if the included games are physical cards, this deal isn't bad. Black is a great color for the Vita, and an 8gb card, while much too small long term, can come in handy. I already have a 3G launch Vita, but also ordered a white Vita, AC bundle from Amazon's insane BF deal. Love the system, my favorite handheld ever.

Yeah same here. If Amazon offered the COD bundle w/ the black Vita at the same price and value I would have taken that instead even though I love AC and don't care for COD. However, I bought a black silicone case for it so maybe the color won't matter much anyway.

Is the deal happening now in store because I did a check availability and it was out of stock everywhere except 2 places kinda far out from me.

Not unless you somehow traveled into the future... the thread does say 11/30.

I agree with this. I picked up the white bundle. Already have a black. Figured I could sell the white vita to pay off most of the assassins creed bundle extras. For example, if I sell it for $150, I end up paying $29 for 3 months of PS+, AC Liberation, the 4GB card and PSABR code.

I think the white vita personally looks really cool when you have the lights out and the PS logo on the bottom left reflects on the cover.. gives it this neat blue sheen

This bundle costs $20 more (and includes tax), so it pretty much nullifies the advantage of getting an 8gb card (which many will upgrade to a 16/32gb anyway). Hot Shots Golf and MLB 12 are the only games not available free via PS+ , and 3G is useless to anyone who doesnt want to pay for the plan. If you factor in all of that, the advantages are pretty minor.

The Amazon BF AC3 bundle came with 2 recent game releases, 3 months of PS+, an exclusive white color, and it was $20 cheaper. I think the main advantage of this deal is the 3G.. which most of us won't use because the plans are fairly expensive for what you're getting out of it.

No, sorry guys but it really isn't a better value. If you were to buy the Vita bundle at full price ($250 for Vita, AC3, and 4 gig stick), three months of Plus ($18), and All-Stars ($40) you'd be paying $308. You paid $180, a savings of $128.

With this bundle you are getting a 3G Vita ($300 and 8 gig stick), two games (up to $40 each depending on what you choose) for a total cost of $380. You pay $199, a savings of $181.

Yes Uncharted and Wipeout are free with PS Plus, but that's only as long as you maintain a paid subscription ($50 a year at the cheapest), and there's no guarantee that those games will remain available forever (which they haven't in the past).

So does the 3g vita has a sim card slot but has anyone been able to unlock the vita for t-mobile service instead?
