It didn't really resonate with me until just now but...

I bought that Black Ops Vita bundle.

That was something I wasn't even planning on getting, but I guess I just couldn't help myself. I've been missing having a portable system. My OG PSP broke from a ledge fall and I never got the 3000 or the Go even though I really wanted one. I have an iPhone but I really don't like playing games on it. It's just not the same. I was hesitant with the Vita at first (cost, memory card cost, the fact that there isn't internal memory), but I think it does have some good games that can help my boredom whilst at work. I played Wipeout 2048 at Best Buy today (the 2nd time ever playing it. First time I played the Uncharted demo but it was very short), and it was a lot of fun.

I also bought ACIII without ever playing any of the other AC games in the series. I guess I'm going to have to get those now too. Well, I can get AC and then the Ezio Trilogy.


Congrats on buying a vita!
I recommend as a new owner signing up for PlayStation Plus, you will get a 6 free games for your system! One of the free games is Wipeout! :bouncy:

"PS Plus members will be able to download the Instant Game Collection, which includes PS Vita games Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Jet Set Radio HD, WipEout 2048, Gravity Rush and Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!, as well as (PSP) PlayStation Portable hit Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions."

Im buying PS Plus just for my vita because I dont use it at all and the games they are giving for free seem like a good selection.

Other than that, my vita is a paperweight.

Thanks for your response! I already have PS+ on my PS3....would I have to purchase it again for Vita, or can I link my account somehow?

Edit NVM "Don’t forget that PS3 users with an existing PS Plus membership will be able to enjoy PS Plus features and services on both PS3 and PS Vita systems at no additional cost."

That is freaking awesome! I'm gonna have to get more memory though. That Black Ops bundle only comes with a 4GB card!

You sign in with the same playstation network ID on your vita, and you will automatically have it

Nope you won't have to re-purchase it! After the store updates tomorrow you will be able to download all those games for free since you are already a member! :)
Pretty nice deal since two of those games still retail for $40 ya know? xD

Just got an email saying Iron Man 2 Blu-ray was backordered.

Also decided to buy NFS Most Wanted, I know it'll be cheaper eventually, but hopefully I still have 60 days to price match and it goes on sale for $20 somewhere...If not oh well.

All in all I bought:
PS3 Bundle
2x Iron Man 2
2x Dead Island GotY
AC3
The Amazing Spider-Man
Blue PS3 Controller
Need for Speed Most Wanted

Total side question, the Toshiba laptop that will be online only on Black Friday at Best Buy, what is everyones opinion of Toshiba laptops?


Used to be a big toshiba fan. Got pissed off after my super-expensive gaming laptop just broke for no reason. Harddrive just crashed. Bought a cheaper one that was just awful.

They aren't what they used to be. Plus their processing speeds are incredibly slow. I would avoid Toshiba, I'm boycotting them.

Hmm. Do I buy Forza now or do I brave the lines at Wal-Mart on Thursday night. Also, if I buy Forza now, theoretically I'd have a better shot at Xbox point cards at Target. Although I have a feeling those things are going to be gone way before I get in line even if I show up early...

Im trying Forza at walmart.

There is a huge price difference on that one... if it were Need for Speed, I would say just order it online because its only 5 dollars. But 20 dollars is a big difference.

I know, but then again if I can make up for that at Target with Xbox Live cards, it may be worth it...

If your talking about the 1600 MSP for $9.99 you should check the Black Friday thread. That was a misprint and it has since been removed from the current Target BF ad and replaced with a 3 Month XBL sub for $9.99.

Thanks for the heads up! Saved me a trip to Target! Guess I'll wait on Forza then.

What is everyones opinion on the $250 laptop? I know it isn't good for gaming, but what about for productivity/web browsing?

I know there is no disc drive, but how would you reinstall Windows and/or programs on it other than using an external USB drive?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I am not a silver member, buy my friend is, so I had him pick up Mortal Kombat Vita for me for $15. I don't know if I'd have a problem getting it on BF, but I figured I'd have him order it and ship to me just in case.

It's a good processor. It should run everything fine. Those pentium dual core cpu's are pretty good when it comes to handling regular stuff like browsing the net. I think that comp can handle HD video if it has an HDMI out.

i was tempted but I'm getting it at gamestop with credit. Plus, this is going to be everywhere at least 10 units in each store.

Same deal as last year, but the console is now almost regularly $250 on sale, whereas last year it was usually $300. $200 with a GC on top or better games people don't already have might have worked better.

This is the 3rd year I've been able to access the early BF sale, and this is the 3rd year it's crashed the site. The 1st year, I gave them a pass. The 2nd year, I assumed they would have learned from the year before and was disappointed when it crashed. This year, I fully expected it to crash.

I'm still a little surprised that a company that mainly sells technology can't figure out how to keep their website from crashing. At least this year it seems that they were able to fix it faster. Either that or I was just less anxious waiting on them to fix it.

And next year I will be on the outside looking in since I would have to spend another $1600 to maintain Silver, which just isn't in the cards. Hopefully they let me keep it anyway.

Oh Best Buy... how I both love and hate you.

I'm thinking the same thing. I have a 160 slim that if the trade in holds I'm upgrading at GS. I also already have the Uncharted Collection and the Infamous collection that I paid $45 total for a few days back and haven't opened yet so I may even come out ahead by a couple bucks by returning them. Unless the TIV for my PS3 gets nuked of course.

Check reviews of the older models with win7 that are priced ~$300. Seems to be a cheaper version of asus not as good as they are usually known for, but for the price I don't think it's bad for non-gaming browsing type of stuff, assuming you also like win8. Not positive for this laptop, but most allow you to reinstall OS from a pre-existing partition on the hard drive.

This was my day with them for sure. Kind of embarrassed how much I was raging earlier only to end up with basically everything I wanted. They will sometimes drive you nuts but then make up for it with a great deal. This must be like having a smoking hot girlfriend who is also certifiably crazy.

Why dont you just go trade it in now and secure your price?
