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


I got in on the B2G1 free blue 3DS deal earlier this morning and just got a tracking number (odd for a sunday purchase).

Maybe these vitas will ship as well!

I had one ready for purchased. entered my credit care info and everything. I decided not to get it with the low amount of quality games and with sony's track record with the psp. I am going to wait and see what the black friday deals are. I am looking to get the wifi with 2 games and memory card for $200 or less (hoping).

So I did manage to PM at BB and have been playing around with it this entire morning and I'll be honest...I'm kind of meh on the product.

Was messing around with Metal Gear Solid HD, and Touch My Katamari but unfortunately I think Disgaea is the only game that has kept me entertained so far. I'll probably buy Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and AC:L when it comes out but I haven't looked through digital downloads yet so I'll still give it a chance though.

The PSP had quite a few good games, maybe you missed some.

I ordered at 8:22am EST, and I got a tracking number. If they cancel my order, I wouldn't even be upset, honestly I rather pick up the Sony Pulse headset. But I don't mind waiting in order to get in on this deal. I need a decent portable gaming device (even though I won't use it often), because games on the ipad / phone aren't that good (except for angry birds, but I'm tired of playing that).

grr I hate you. I ordered mine at 5:30am and it was canceled.

They put my order through for 3 blue 3DS consoles at $95 each and I already have tracking for that, but 1 vita for $180 and they cancel :wall:

The PSP was one of, if not the best game console these past few years. Piracy in the west killed it before it could reach its full potential like it did in Japan, but you can't blame Sony for that.

And no, I think you have a 0% chance of what you're hoping for. Next year maybe, this year, no way. :roll:

Even at this price I'm not sure if it's worth it yet. I still play PSP more then any other system, but Vita doesn't quite have the library atm to make it a worthy successor/replacement.

Did anyone else simply keep their PSP to play PSP games on?

I did, cause that's about the only way you'll get to play your PSP games. I do wish that Sony would have made some official program so that you can transfer (or get a voucher for) at least 10 PSP games. I send them the PSP game and they give me a digital download voucher for said game. I don't really need to transfer all my PSP games, but just 5 to 10 would be fine with me.

I will be, once I upgrade. As Thomas said, you don't have a lot of choice if you have a PSP library you still want to play. I still use a PSP 1000 - wouldn't mind actually UPGRADING it to a PSP 3000 some day.

Yep. I love my PSP phat. Bought it launch and is still aces. No way in hell was I gonna re-purchase all my games digital.

Wish I could've gotten in on this Vita deal. Grats to all who did :applause: I already have a Vita anyways so no biggie.

I was able to get two (one for me, one as a gift) -- looks like both went through.

I still buy everything on UMD. They're cheaper then buying digital copies most of the time, and I can rip them to my 32gb memory card (which only cost $20, much cheaper then it would be on Vita) to get all the advantages of digital copies.

Plus if you have a later model PSP you can play games on a normal TV, and use PS2 controllers via 3rd party adapters with it (or PS3 controllers on PSPGo). That alone makes the PSP worth keeping even if you have a Vita and buy all your games digitally.

Glad that some of you were able to get in on this.

I missed my chance that morning and would have loved to have gotten my hands on one for this price, considering I'm still sitting on my 3 games from the WalMart Buy 2 get 1 free promotion.

Still plenty of time this year to find one though.

I think this may've just been a price mistake after all. It's back in stock at $279.99. Maybe they meant to make it that price rather than $179.99, but screwed up 1 digit. Also would explain the random cancellations.

Mine was canceled and I received an email about the price mistake today. Guess my order was a bit too late. West Coast has it's cons.

The weird thing is someone else ordered 2 hours before me and their order got cancelled. I don't think they cancelled based on the time the order was placed.

Actually it was an advantage for me - I hadn't gone to bed yet. If it had hit at 7 or 8 (or even 10 or 11am) Pacific I would have never seen it ;).

Looks like it is on its way with delivery scheduled this Saturday.

Mine just got delivered. Picked up Wipeout, Mortal Kombat, and Little Deviants for $40 total at Target with the B2G1 sale this week. Wish LBP was cheaper.
