This is all it said

"Fully playable game is included; downloadable content (DLC) or codes for online play may require additional purchase. Small wrinkle / bend on item case."


I would say it's a pretty good chance. I have seen quite a few of those Vault editions go up lately and most sound like the boxes were just damaged in their warehouse.

Can someone help or walk me through this deal. I get everything else but these deals. So you just have to search for the game and compare prices and condition? Any help is appreciated and thanks for looking :D

What does a hacked vita have to do with fake games?


Like with any system, you cant play "backed up" or bootleg games without some type of custom firmware running.

In this thread http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=327971 slidecage claims to have received a bootleg game, but once people start asking questions and want pictures, he stops responding. He also makes mention of the fact that he was able to play a little bit of this bootlegged game. Unless the Vita was running custom firmware, the game wouldn't have even been recognized if it weren't a legit copy.

The fact is, there are no bootlegs out there yet. If there were, they'd be for games that are selling a ton of copies, like Gravity Rush and Hot Shots, not MLB and Madden. Slidecage, if you sent the picture to Sony, they're not going to email you back and say "Oh yeah that game's fake!" No company would admit to their...as they claim...hack proof console being hacked with bootlegs out there.

So stop trying to scare people. The reason these Maddens are so cheap, is because...like others have said...they're probably from the bundle.

I was under the impression that a fake vita game was just a blank cartridge really. Looks like the real thing but once you pop it in it does nothing.

Your thought makes more sense to me than captaintek3304.

What does boot leg have anything to do with a fake game? Boot leg games would run 100% fine on the Vita, if there were such a thing as of right now. Publically, the Vita can only run Homebrew.

Actually, I'm pretty sure there's an exploit to run PSP ISOs as well through some PSP Mini exploit.

In response to the fake game argument, I'm up to date with the current status of piracy on the Vita (dude to visiting GFaqs regularly) and I can say it would be very difficult to create a fake Vita game cartridge as it would be to pirate a Vita game cartridge; the technology to read and manufacture these cartridges is as proprietary as the memory cards. It would be infinitely more likely (and profitable) for anyone wanting to profit from the Vita's existence to work on replicating memory cards rather than games, so quite frankly, encountering a fake game cartridge seems a bit out there.

So I think we've established that the "New / no pack" carts are probably from Vita Madden bundles. Can we move to deals? Like, this is how we talk about Vita here:

MK: $14.97
Disgaea 3: $29.25
Lumines: $22.47
Touch My Katamari: $14.99

I ordered a "brand new" Madden that was from the Madden bundle off of Ebay. It shipped in a plastic clam shell case.

These seem to be flooding the market now. I'm guessing because some people bought the bundles planning on selling their copies and quite frankly....the game isn't that good.

No, I posted a link to Gravity Rush that was in Acceptable condition. I posted it as Acceptable Gravity Rush. I think it was pretty obvious what I mean though.

My 25th Anniversary acceptable Street Fighter set came in today, the outer box and the black storage box is smashed a bit on the top with a noticeable but not terrible indent on the top, this caused the certificate of authenticity to be bent on that spot, but the games, art book, cds, statue, and belt are all in great condition and it did come with all the DLC as it was sealed, overall definitely happy with it for about 80 bucks.
