Thanks for the info, yeah I can’t find the English Delta version really, there is one on eBay but it’s over $200 which I highly doubt anybody will buy lol. There were some that were $70 that were brand new, in hindsight, I probably would have jumped on that.

 

Set up an ebay saved search and keep an eye out.  You should be able to find a used physical English Delta for $30-40 if you keep an eye out.

Man, do the PSP Persona games ever go on sale?  I already have them all physically, but I don't even know where my PSP is and I'd rather play them on my Vita...  thinking about buying them digital but I don't really want to pay $20 each.

PSP and PSVita PSN games don't really go on sale anymore. Sony doesn't care about the legacy systems (PS3 really doesn't have stuff go on sale either). So yeah if we ever get lucky we'll see some sales, but yeah you may be out of luck for a long while.

You can check the historical prices on psprices.com and make an assessment from there.

Atlus was one of the last companies that still put digital PSP games on sale occasionally, but it’s been ages since that happened, so far as I’m aware.

There was a huge sale on all of them like 4-5 years ago, which I only grabbed Persona 3 FES / P3P / Golden. Sadly I'm about to pay full price for the original Persona / Persona 2 games just because like other posters above have pointed out, its very unlikely they will ever go on sale again.

Just an FYI, there’s actually a pretty huge sale on Vita games on the PSN store. Here’s a link for the list of games:

https://psdeals.net/...latforms=psvita

Notables:
Persona 4 Golden for $7.99
Nonary Games for $11.99
Looks like the Code Realize games are on sale ranging from $11.99–15.99

The sale “should” be good thru 5/13 at 8am according to a post I read.

PSN does a shit job at showing sale titles now. None of them seem to show the vita titles.

Just use PSPrices. Makes it much easier to browse sales than PSN.

Maybe if you like cart only games. I think the only non cardboard based games with a lower rate of coming complete are the ps1/dreamcast /saturn games

I am curious, is the argument that physical gutted is cheaper than digital at this point due to the lack of sales? I don't have an answer either way, just curious if anyone does?

I guess I should also say, personally while it might be cheaper to go gutted physical, the lack of a case and cover drive me nuts. Just my personal peeve/issue. But I am sure I am not alone in that thought.

I just prefer physical over digital. I don't like having cart only games either, but if it's a game I really want I will buy it regardless.

I don't see much for 20 or less worth buying from gamestop currently for the vita sadly that's actually in stock.

Just an FYI, on eBay there are some very good sellers who make cases adbox work. I’m one who hates gross cases, no adbox art, and adbox art that was just printed off a regular printer on regular paper.

I just ordered off of eBay from a seller customgamecovers (100% seller rating) and received them today and it is very good work. The adbox art has that glossy finish like a regular adbox and it was cut perfectly and the paper they use is actually more heavy duty then official adbox art. Plus it comes in brand new cases that are identical to a regular vita case, might be the same. A used shop at

If you look into his stuff shoot him a message to see if they can do a package deal, I got 9 adbox and artwork made for $37. He does artwork for most systems I believe as well.

The reason I did this is I got Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 on Vita for $15 each at a local used game store with no case and they are both retailing at $30+ not including shipping on eBay for complete used versions. So I got both for about $20 each by ordering the adboxes seperately.

This is obvious but yeah, just make sure they have it beforehand lol. They have a ton of stuff for each system. I only needed 5 Vita cases and I recently started getting some PSP games so I got 4 of those to get that discount. Same thing with those, the cases are new and look identical to official ones (example it says umd where the umd goes).

I’m legit going to buy more used on older stuff like that if there’s a huge price difference if I can find the adbox from this guy.

Would anyone like me to post pictures of the cases and adbox work? I’d need some instructions on how to do that if so because the be never posted those on her before lol.

Ironically I also placed an order for a few cases and artwork the other day from the same seller. They should be here tomorrow.

Are there any decent god simulators for vita? Just grabbed Reus from the psn sale and got me wondering about it... I really enjoyed From Dust on ps3. Hoping for some recommendations. 🤞

Yeah I actually ordered some more yesterday lol. I found some used games like Chrono Trigger DS and Bravely Default that were half the price as complete editions on eBay and ordered the replacement cases so it was quite a bit cheaper lol.

I actually like these reprints/reproductions better than some of the official cases I got as the reprints have more vibrant colors.

Do they add anything to the artwork to make it clear that their cases are repros? Like a logo or something?

I just got an email confirmation that the shipping label was printed. Unfortunately I supported Skull Pirates so I'm on the hook for a least one more game from them. With the recent news that vita cartridges production in Asia may be coming to a close soon he better get this one finished soon. No time table on the stop of production but it has been rumored through out the community for a few weeks now.

Kinda skeptical that Skullpirates meets the deadline, honestly. Luc posted a Kickstarter update saying he's prioritizing it, but he's not exactly great with deadlines. This game is already nearing two years past its original delivery date.

I’m like 99% sure they are just reproductions of the official artwork (they have the same barcode as the official one, all the small print, etc) with no difference or logo on them. The only difference that could happen is they don’t do reversible artwork, so when buying you are only going to get the artwork that’s usually on the outside if that makes sense. Also the paper used is a little thicker than the usual paper for an adbox.

If you’re interested, I’d check out his item descriptions on eBay, they go over the details.

It doesn't look like there's anything on there from the eBay page, but it's tough to see everything. It just irks me when people make bootleg stuff and don't clearly label it.

Bootleg stuff? It’s a case, they aren’t making fake game cartridges/memory cards. Can’t believe I actually wasted time making that last post as I thought I was helping lmao.

Please do everyone a favor and don’t bug that eBay seller lol.

It's just shady to leave off any indication that it's a repro is all. You don't have to act like you don't know why. You know. We all know.
