There’s a special three day ad for Target. Here are the game offers:

Posted Image :360: :ps3: Call of Duty Black Ops II - $49.99

Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified Wi-Fi Vita Bundle - $249.99 *Free $50 Gift Card w/ purchase

edit: **other Vita bundles come with $50 gift card as well**

Combine either of these two sales with the Spend $50 get a $10 Gift Card offer. You need to spend $50 before tax, so you would need to buy another item for one cent or more if you buy Black Ops II for $49.99. The cheapest item I can think of is a banana for 24 cents, but I’m sure you could find something to buy to get over $50.

You can also use your REDcard to save an additional 5%.

I don't care for the design of the system.

I want to rest my fingers on the back of the system instead of all curled up and in the grip locations. Hands cramps after about 30 minutes of play time. IF I rest my hands on the back, that trackpad picks up input on Uncharted and really hurts game play. The screen is really nice, the joysticks are stubby and my fingers slip off. They put the buttons and d-pad really close to the tops of the thumbsticks. It's has and will take a few weeks to get used to the layout, I'm still not comfortable with it. I've used the Dualshock controllers for 10+ year and the Vita layout isn't the same and throws me off.

Now that they actually got some decent games for it. It's better to have from when it launched and I don't regret the purchase as much now.
I do like the back touch screen except on some games where I would normally rest my hands it can pick up the movement. That can also be a good thing when I play plants vs zombies and you can use the rear screen touch pad to gather up all the sun and coins instead of poking the front screen.

$250, red card brings it down to about $238 before tax - $60 in gift cards, then trading in the steaming pile of a game that comes with the bundle for $15 to BB.. A Vita for ~$170 looks pretty good on paper. It's getting harder to pass these up. Now if only there were more than a handful of games I'd play on it. D;

I agree that it takes some getting used to. I was having a hell of a time aiming in Uncharted due to those sticks. Don't think I'll be playing a lot of games on Vita that require precise aiming.

I'm keeping an eye out on CL for banana flippers. Can't wait to give them a piece of my mind when I see them.

Only if you have an ad that says 19 cents. Walmart is doing B2G1 bananas, but that is a package deal so Target won't match it.

Even if you had the ad now it wouldn't (shouldn't) work since they have the dates pretty clearly marked on them. I suppose you could get someone who doesn't pay attention and luck out, but why not just wait the two days?

I think you’re confused – he wants to price match at Best Buy with this current Target ad, which is a special three day ad running today through Saturday. Best Buy will certainly price match that, although I do agree it’d be a bit easier to just do it on Sunday when their own store has it for $10 less.

I don’t blame klimb22 though, I’d be eager too :). I suppose if you were already visiting Best Buy this week it would save you from an extra trip if you weren’t planning on going next week.

I picked up the physical ad at Target and drove up the street to PM at BB. The ad says "Save Thursday-Saturday on the front, but has the actual dates on the back. Yes, was already out so wanted to get it done today. Too bad I have to wait to PM Far Cry 3.
