Just traded in Gravity Rush and Uncharted at gamestop. They're going for 11 and 10 respectively. After the 10% PowerUp and 10$ bonus for trading in 3 games, I got 29.76$ for them.

Call of duty bundle is the better deal since it's going to be 199.99. Haven't seen the Assassins creed bundle on sale anywhere.


In my opinion, the white vita look slick. Maybe I just have a soft spot for white Sony gadget! :D

I think a while back there was a pre-order bonus for $15 off any $49.99+ (NewEgg) and with a gift card that I had, it knocked the price down to $179.99. I was pretty happy :applause:

I ordered the white AC bundle from Amazon today. The BO bundle will be cheaper and you can just sell the game if you don't want it, but I didn't want to mess with Black Friday crowds and I too think the white looks pretty sweet. And I had lots of credit from Best Buy that I converted to Amazon credit, and since I don't get taxed by Amazon here, I felt like it was worth it to just order now.

Congrats Tyler on getting a Vita especially the AC bundle. The white Vita looks pretty slick. I think a game everybody was hoping for to be free was Escape Plan since we got the cheap DLC.

I wonder if I can get BB to price match amazon for the 16gb vita card...guess it's worth a shot. Getting $21 for gravity rush will make it an easy purchase too.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

How is it a $21 trade in? Isn't it $10 x 2 = $20?

He probably has their rewards program which gets you an extra 10% on the 10$ base value, so an extra 1$. ;)

Wow, that is an impressive start, especially with Jet Set Radio included. Good to know that if I end up buying a Vita in a year or two, I'll have a few dozen free games (by that time) coming with it.

Don't have a Vita, but I'm going to "download" these just in case I decide to get one later.

I really like what Sony is doing. I wish they would do more PR in an attempt to push more units. But you'd still have the idiots who believe the Vita "has no gamez" or complain about the proprietary memory cards. It's only a matter of time though until rocketfish or someone else makes a 3rd party memory card.


Rocketfish? They don't even make SD cards for all I know. If it's going to be anybody who will probably have third party Vita cards first if it happens, it's SanDisk.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

Were there ever third party memory sticks? I don't remember if there were or not.

Oh, man, that is a nice selection. I'm so glad I got in on that $171 Vita bundle from Target (when they had the 3G/Wifi + 8GB card bundle for $180 minus redcard savings). I guess I'll finally crack that thing open. Problem is, I thought the 8GB card it came with would be plenty (since I wasn't planning on buying much of anything for download). But this changes things a bit ;).

The Memory Stick (proprietary Sony format) was a joint Sony/SanDisk/Lexar project. They were the only companies to manufacture retail versions, IIRC. SanDisk was the cheapest, so I think most people with a Sony camera/PSP had a Sandisk branded MS.

You'd think Sony would have learned their lesson over all these years pushing proprietary formats on consumers, only for it to not be adopted and die out.

That having been said, if the Vita lives long enough (is it the only thing that uses these cards?) the price of the memory will go down as they refine the manufacturing process over time. I think it's worthwhile to spend the $80~$100 for a bigger memory card if you're going to take advantage of PS+, but I wouldn't count on 3rd party versions.

Yes I have GCU so I got $21 for Gravity Rush. Also BB price matched Amazon @$46.62 for me so after tax and my GC I got from Gravity Rush only $30 cash for a 16gb card. Gotta love PS+

I thought Jet Set Radio was for PS3? Is this a Vita only edition? I know the game is on 360 as well.

The Vita version includes some touch screen enhancements, it was originally set to release alongside the other two versions but it was delayed. Now we know why. :D

I too would take Uncharted GA off someones hands. Thinking about that Black Ops bundle during Black Friday and want UC.

Really liking PS+. Might have to stock another year with the COD @Gamer mag

Decided to sell my physical copy of Uncharted: GA on Amazon. After shipping and Amazon's commission, I was able to get $17 for it. I own Gravity Rush digitally, so can't resell that one.

Now playing: Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS), Overwatch (PC)

That's not how proprietary memory works. Sony would have to license the tech to Rocketfish in order to let them make the cards.

and yes, sandisk and lexar had licenses to make PSP memory, which is why there were 3rd party cards for the PSP.

Memory cards are basically the only way Sony is making any money on the Vita currently, they aren't going to license out the mem cards.

While true, it sure doesn't stop hongkong generics from appearing somewhere down the road once (if) they figure it out. Maybe thats what he meant.

this was a brilliant marketing move for Sony...

Give away these awesome titles and you get to entice people to buy 3 things at once: ps vita, memory card, and ps+ membership.

lol, and all right before the busiest shopping week of the year.
