This was at the Woodlands store, the Galleria one was kinda picked clean.


The Woodlands store is still pretty well stocked as of May 10 2pm. Plenty of copies of Ridge Racer at $25. Also a bunch of PSP games discounted on the small shelf opposite of the vita display.

I went to the closest Sony Store and found pretty much every Vita game posted here (except Touch My Katamari, but I'm not interested in that), but despite planning on picking up Lumines, I just couldn't decide which single game (trying to save money :razz:) to get from the following:

-BlazBlue: CS Extend
-Lumines Electronic Symphony
-Shinobido 2
-UMvC3

I'm not much of a fighter fan, but there's something appealing about playing games like BlazBlue or UMvC3 on the go, even if I wouldn't play them seriously. I love puzzle games like Tetris, but I'm concerned as to how long Lumines would last me and if the $20 price tag would justify it (the Target trade-in deal has definitely spoiled me for the foreseeable future). I know the least about Shinobido 2, but it appears like the game with the most potential for a lasting game experience; the lukewarm reviews don't exactly inspire me to pick it up, however. :\ I plan on going back this Sunday, but any advice on which I should get would be most appreciated.

Aside from those, the Vita games that interest me are stuff like Uncharted: GA, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, Dynasty Warriors Next, Rayman Origins (holy snap, I want this on-the-go so BAD), and hopefully Gravity Rush.

...OK, so I don't have a Vita yet, but does that really matter for us CAGs? :whee:

Yeah, I went to the one on Madison Ave in Manhattan. Great selection and very low key. Even had a great convo with one of the workers.

Picked up Shinobido, Lumines and KoFXIII. Oh, and a trigger grip for the Vita that's incredible.

thanks for the update. i might run over there tomorrow. :D

But did you try ringing anything up? It's possible their stickers just weren't updated yet.

Go back. I went there too and at first glance, the wall of Vita games are full priced. I was about to leave and asked a sales associate and she led me to a small case with all the Vita and PS3 games on sale. I picked up Lumines.

Just some others that were worth checking out imo...

Shadows of the Damned - $14.97
No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise - $9.97

There really are quite a few games on sale...if you take the time to look there are more than the titles listed in this thread. I went to the Madison Ave. store in NYC.

Not according to some people (see OP); I probably should have had it price-checked to be sure, but I assumed that the $29.97 stickers on the copies I saw were possibly not updated to $19.97 yet.

Hey, did you, or anyone else who went to the store at Madison Ave, see Agarest War or Alice there?

Just got back from the Sony store at the Wrentham outlets. Grabbed Blazblue for $19.97. Also saw Army Corps of Hell, Shinobido, and Lumines for $19.97. MvC was still $29.99. Also saw the Darkness 2 and Soul Caliber 5 for $20, and R&C A41 and Medievil Dedmjnds quest for $14.99. Wish I didn't just replace my car battery or I woulda grabbed SC5 and Shinibido as well. Will probably head back next week.

Anyone here play Shinibido or Army Corps of Hell yet and have opinions?

Oof, my bad, then. I guess I won't consider it with the other three Vita titles I mentioned in my original post, though I would like any opinions as to which I should get, if any: Lumines, BlazBlue: CS Extend, or Shinobido 2. Read my earlier post for more info as to my thoughts on each.

Sweet deal, thanks for the heads up. There's two Sony stores down in SoCal, but I'll probably hit the one at Fashion Valley in a few days. I'll see what they have.

I just stopped by the Sony store in Fashion Valley and was pretty disappointed at what I found. There were a few of the Vita deals listed in the OP, but I had already bought several of them used from GoHastings so all I picked up was Army Corp of Hell (and only so I didn't leave completely empty-handed). Had hoped to get some of the PS3 games, but their selection (in the same case as the Vita games) was pretty poor.

Thanks for the heads up. ^_^ Was really hoping for Alice, as I don't see myself playing Agarest for a long time. I already have a big backlog, and I'm in the middle of Xenoblade...I think I'm going to need a break from RPGs after that behemoth.

BE SURE TO LOOK FOR/ASK THEM IF THEY HAVE A BASKET OF GAMES!

I asked her if the ones on the wall were all the PS3 games they had. They were not. Pointed me to the basket when I asked about more PSP games. Almost made me miss Medieval Moves!:twoguns:

KOF XIII with CD $19.97(marked $29.97. New to this series. Will check out more YouTube gameplay videos before I open it.)

Medieval Moves $14.97(Yes. I know it's been said as $11.98 on clearance at Target. After 5 Targets or so and full price, whatev.)

Mass Effect 2 $9.97

Yoostar 2 $4.97

MLB The Show 09 $2.97


Thanks for the thread, OP!:)

Was able to pick up Darkness II LE for 19.97 and Alice for 9.97 at the Tampa, FL Sony Store. They had a limited selection from what was at the wall of what I saw. Asked the guy if he could check on the computer if they had other marked downed games in stock and I was told what was on the wall is all they got. If anyone in the area wanted the vita games from the OP they did have those marked down with the orange sticker.

Infamous 2 $9.97?!? WTF Nice. Wish I asked about the price on that(hard to see price stickers on the wall form where I stand in front of register). Looks like I will be going back. Got Army Corps and Shinobido2 though. Thanks for the info!
