PS Vita Bundle...Good Deal?

For $500 on Craigslist:

- PS Vita Wi-Fi/3G
- 5 Games: Little Deviants, Uncharted: GA, Wipeout 2048, Modnation Racers, Hot Shots Golf
- 16 GB Card

Advice is welcome! I think the combined total of these at retail is about $550...but this would be sans tax. The drawback is he's already taken it out of the case, but he mentioned that it's only for inspection purposes.

Also--it looks like it isn't a 3G Launch Bundle or First Edition Bundle, is this legit?

Thanks CAGs.

Could be legit, but then again it's a really great price. Ask if you could yourself try it out?

Thanks--we'll probably meet in a public place so I'll have to check out the system. Just curious if there are Vitas in the wild that aren't the Launch or FEB--this is the first thing that stood out to me.

A resounding pass to me. If you get the 3G launch bundle and the mentioned games on Amazon it comes to $470, plus you get the 8GB card, Month of 3G access & Stardust Delta. That would also be sans tax, depending on the laws in your area.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I can't fathom why anyone would invest so much just to sell it off so quickly. This alone screams scammer.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

This is true--the question becomes whether the extra GBs and earlier pickup date are worth it (probably not). With my Chase card, I'm getting 5% Cash Back as well on Amazon. Thanks for the advice--think I'll pass.

No problem, glad I could be of help. Can't say I blame you though, I've been counting down the days for about 3 weeks! :)

Update: Ended up finding the same bundle minus Little Deviants for $410. Think I scored a deal (and I didn't get stabbed, which is always a plus)!

Sweet grab, for sure. Glad you're still alive! :lol:
