Went to Target today and bought one ($299.99) and was told to come back in four days to get the price match. Pretty ridiculous and I emailed Target.com to tell them so.

Good luck with it being still on sale on Nov 1.

I got my order in.
I'm debating on buying one at Target for $299 and returning the one they ship me.

I haven't really been following the Vita deals other than the Sam's Club one as I've been waiting for Black Friday/the holiday season, but this one has me interested. Does anyone think it's likely the regular WiFi version will hit ~$150 later this year? My original intention was to hold out for such a price and then pick up a 32gb memory card when there's an eventual sale so I could transfer my UMD games over. Just afraid that retailers will prefer doing game bundles instead, and it would definitely be easy to find the games themselves for cheap later. 3G functionality doesn't make a difference for me at all.

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.


That makes sense. I think I'll wait til Nov 1 though. I don't want to risk the site removing the sale before then and finding myself with the $300 handheld with a couple of games for it from the b2g1.

just says:

"There was a problem with your order placed on 10/28/2012. As a result, we had to cancel it."

I've never had an order get canceled before, and I used my redcard with plenty of limit.


I was expecting my order of 3 Aqua blue 3ds consoles to get canceled.. i'm sure i'll get an email for that soon.. but not sure why this had to be canceled.. i'm sure I ordered before most people

It took too long for that too happen.

I thought it was going to last for five seconds like a Black Friday deal but it lasted for a few hours which is too long.

Can you transfer UMD games to a memory card? What do you need to do it? I'd sell my PSP in a heartbeat and get a Vita if so.

The Vita is too expensive even at $180.

I bought the WiFi one when Amazon had a special around launch date and I still don't see how the 3g one with an 8 GB card is worth $180.

Maybe this is a mistake like the Adventure time collector edition for half price a while back.

It's an expensive mistake.

The Vita has a long way to go still.

Thank you very much jkimrey and Bosamba! Sadly, even if I wanted to go to my local store to pick one up I wouldn't be able to because of the impending storm and how all of the Halloween festivities are happening today because of it.

I will say that I will probably get a 3DS XL this year unless there are no deals at all - that's for sure. I do want a Vita in the future too - it just doesn't need to be now.

I was able to get my local Target to pricematch the website so I guess it depends on the employee. I also had a Red Card and an additional 5% coupon so I got it for $175.64 out the door with tax. Thanks to the OP for this one. I missed out on the Sams club deals.

Great deal if you wanted a 3G Vita.

Still a good deal otherwise as this is 25% off the Wifi Vita and a nice amount of memory is included.

If I didn't already have the 3G Vita I would have jumped on this.

Whoops! The taget.com page is now showing $299. That and the cancellation emails may mean this was a price mistake.....

Hopefully it wasn't a mistake and if it was hopefully those of us who ordered at least get a coupon out of this. :(

For what it is worth I checked my debit account and they took the money.

Yeah, local Target turned me down. I'll have to returned the Gravity Rush I picked up with Harvest Moon and Prof Layton too.

too bad. I have been looking at Vitas. I just can't see spending more than $200
