If it makes anyone feel better about trying I pm'ed one this morning with no hassle at my local Target. I was only asked whether or not the price was at Target's own site. Last one at that location though.

A store shows limited stock in my area. Hopefully, they'll have it.

Called my store, guy said they had one in stock but it wasn't on sale. He said I should print out the deal and take it to Customer Service and that if I complain enough they might give it to me at that price

Worth a shot <_<

Just picked one up in store. Got them to price match online. The employees were really nice and had no issues with anything. They even let me use a 5% off coupon I got in the mail a few days ago.

My store was a no-go, but there is another one a few miles down the road. I'll try there too.

Should I get a coat or this Vita bundle? I would freeze to death all winter but at least I'll be happy playing a Vita.

Well done to folks who got it. I feel like this price or lower is what it will take to move Vitas.

^^^^
Hahahahahaha
Don't forget by the time u factor in tax about the inevitable deal with $50 Gc for assassins creed 3 liberation bundle which has no 3G but I just tether it to my phone anyway so that would almost be like paying $199.99 anyway if u know what to spend the gc on...

Must resist, I don't even know what good games are out for the Vita and my backlog of 3DS games keeps growing.

For those on the fence I will remind you that Ragnarok and Assassin's Creed 3 comes out on Tuesday for the Vita. In a few weeks it's Persona 4 Golden. Good month for the Vita.

I wonder if Target will carry Ragnarok, I'd love to take advantage of their B2G1 and get some Vita games there.

Doubtful. I was there yesterday and the guy pulled out a binder of games coming out this week and it wasn't on the list :(

got one!
I was holding out on the vita till black friday...but this was too good to pass up.

It still is questionable if something better will hit on black friday. imo best case scenario for BF would be $200 wifi with a game or gc... so the difference is kind of negligible.

Local store has one but I don't really want it. Cowboom deals has the same thing minus the memory card for usually $140+tax

There is no doubt someday the price will drop. I can't see the 3g version dropping any lower anytime soon. If it is a black friday there will be a stampede on a shortaged amount.

One thing I have a hard time understanding is The vita is an awesome portable and it should be doing so much better. Not sure why it is struggling? Hopefully they can drop the price to a everybody should get one level.

I don't know; FWIW this is just one retailer, having a sale or clearancing out essentially an obsolete (or at least not supported) version of the Vita.

This is a great pick-up but I just don't see Sony making many more of the 3G models unless they have some plan to support it better.

Assuming that I'm guessing in typical target fashion they are just trying to rid themselves of the stock. I don't think it is at all indicative of future price drops or sales.

I would rather get a ps3 with collections for the same price...if that comes true on BF.

Vitas are nice, but for me to get one its gonna have to be at like $100

I'm expecting similar sweet deals during Black Friday unless Sony doesn't care about pushing units, which they often don't at their own demise.

Many folks only buy game systems and other big ticket items solely during that season. It'd be foolish to past up that prime buying season without a tempting deal.

A bit lazy to look for the new price match policy staring Nov 1. So I can price match at Target from target.com even if the site is out of stock?

My thought is that that when they are showing local stores as an option for purchase, that they should let you. It will be a YMMV situation.

The other thing you could do is to buy, and they try to price match it on Thursday when their new policy goes into effect that states that they will price match their own website. Right now, they do not.
