UPDATE: No longer all YMMV. Some prices are showing up online now. Albeit some are different.

Ive listed the item, the clearance price in store  and the online price if the product is available.

 

Best Buy was clearing out Vita accessories. Major deals.

 *Reports are that these sales in store are at most stores, would still recommend calling ahead for availability and pricing. As for online some are showing that its not available for shipping but for in store pick up onlydouble check.

This is like the 8th thread with these items in the past month and a half.  Sadly all the stores around me are out of the car adapter.

 

I did grab the Vita starter kit and it's OK, not sure if I'm going to take it back or not.  The only items of note in it are the system case and card case.  The system case is nice and padded but has this stupid extra compartment on the back that you can't fit anything into but makes the case about 33% thicker.  If they had left that back part off it would have been almost perfect for what I want.  The card case isn't bad, holds something like 32 games (don't think I've even seen that many retail Vita releases) and feels reasonably solid.  The downside is that it's fairly large and thick and unless you have to have more than eight games in the case and one in the system than the official Sony one they're clearancing for $1.99 is perfectly fine and a lot smaller.  Maybe if you despise the little blue cases, have a big physical library and want something to keep them all in at home it's not bad.  Probably leaning towards keeping it just because it's only $3 and while the case is chunkier than I would prefer I can probably live with it for the savings over a different case.

Yea, its such a great deal. There is a rumor the 4gb will be discontinued. Id call them just to double check. But if you're looking at the other stuff you can do store pick up.

Well everything's still YMMV from the standpoint of it's all clearance and going to vary in availability by store.  That's what's nice about being able to view each store's actual clearance on the website now.

I searched quickly when I was in store and saw nothing. My fault. Those didnt have everything on sale, and this is more organized. I'll leave it to mods if they want to lock it.

Seems to be, however id call your local store to double check and use the online locator to check.

Yes but the best stuff is gone from most of the busier stores already.

I got one of the rocketfish starter kits. The case seems pretty decent, especially for only $3! Plus it has a screen protector, etc. Mind you, I don't have my Vita yet. It arrives tomorrow, so yet to see if the thing actually fits in it. LOL. But I presume it does.

I can't see myself putting a cheap screen protector on that and OLED Gorilla Glass screen.

My vita arrives tomorrow, but from what I have read and what people have told me is that the screen scratches easily, maybe is a coating that people are loosing that are making it seem like scratches?


I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

This!

 

I work with a guy who flips games/systems on craigslist. I roll without a protector on my gorilla glass phone, but my co-worker is insisted I immediately put on a screen protector when I un-boxed my 3G.

 

He says Vita screens scratch easier than 360 disks.

I don't know, I haven't run into any issues.  I know the PSP was like soft butter and you looked at it wrong and it would scratch.
