I think games from that developer drop as low as $0.99 sometimes. Just be aware that it's a heftier than usual premium to get physical copies.

Yeah their art style is cool, but from what I've seen/read, the games are exceptionally basic.

That's from the devs that did Mecho Tales, right? I love their art style, but holy crap that game was so mediocre. The level design of Mecho Tales looks like a college student's first attempt at making a game, and it's like 2 hours long. I still find it loathsome that LRG did the 'Developer' edition for that game to milk some more money out of people for an already overpriced release that didn't deserve the physical treatment in the first place.

Lrg does a lot of games that don’t need physical sadly. I mean bards gold, another world, nova-111, etc. mecho tales is also not even mediocre, it’s downright bad. There is a reason it’s almost constantly on sale for .99. Hoping these ones are play-asia though so i don’t feel the need to buy them for my NA set while others can still buy them if they see fit

Mecho Wars Desert Ashes is probably the best Advance Wars clone made.  Granted you have to overlook those character designs but the gameplay is pretty spot on with very similar unit types.  The dev has announced plans to bring it to the Switch (which is what I'm waiting on)... but before poo poo'ing on the Vita version take a moment and watch a few youtube videos or something.  I totally understand the initial backlash against it.... but it's a solid experience.  I think the base game is even free to download on Vita... so go get it and try it out.

Got a new one from Play-Asia.com

Works perfectly and looks beautiful. Just have to get used to the O and X buttons being used differently on the home screen menus.

I got a Neon Orange one this year. I believe it was purchased from Amazon from an international seller. I received it as a gift. I use it everyday and placed my old OLED version in storage for now. I was an OLED purist but let me tell you the new model just feels so much better in my hands and the difference is so minor with the screen. The battery life also blows away the OLED version. I am very happy to have the newer model and wish I would have gotten one sooner.

Amazon JP is supposed to get new stock in sometime this month. After conversion, it will run around $175 according to rates as of yesterday. That includes pretty quick standard shipping. Stuff I order from them gets here to the states in a few days. I plan on grabbing my final backup Vita from them as soon as they are available. Haven't found a source cheaper than Amazon JP for new Vita consoles.

I've been meaning to grab a back up vita to keep on the side, but kept putting it off since I have back up vita tvs.  Gonna kick myself if I wait too long, so I'll end up grabbing one from Amazon JP too when they come back in stock.  Thanks for the info :)

I've been looking at ebay because they have other colors. I also want to get a backup before production stops. Just wish Amazon.jp would carry other colors for the $175 price

I recommend Amazon Japan, like others have previously stated.

I remember after ordering my Red Vita from there, it arrived within a few days. Very satisfied with their shipping speed.

yeah i feared that earlier this year with the drought of vita info since getting a new one as a backup is better, was able to get a play of days bundle, was a repackage from unsold units but new none the less, only after getting did i realize that its the silver za25 one, had to look things up and found out the za24 model was the neon orange and the za26 model was metalic red so second to last produced model is still good

well u cant expect amazon to keep them forever for when you feel like buying one, if you want a new one in a certain color just pay up at least its available to purchase

Definitely a good deal for the Best Buy games with GCU. Once Best Buy is out of several of these titles the prices are going to increase noticeably since third-party sellers will be the only way to get them new.

I don't think it's worth it. The game could be beat in a couple of hours in one sitting.

Most of the ones available at BBY aren't really worth it. Either not that great or have been much less, i.e. Exist Archive.

Psycho Pass maybe and Shiren but both are higher than the rest.

I bought my oled from eBay. It was pre-owned but when it came it was like new.
My blue slim is from Yahoo Japan auction site. That site is good but shadey since you have to base everything on pictures and bad translations. Prices are fair if you're lucky.( Used buyee to shop there. Their fees are expensive though)

Anyone have experience with this memory card converter for the Vita? Seems like you have to "hack" your Vita in order for it to work though
