Right now, the walking dead bundle shows in Stock for 199:

The Black Friday one with the additional games pops in and out too, I managed to get that yesterday. Includes download code for Sly Cooper, Uncharted and Retro City Rampage. Watch for it if you want that stuff too.

Supposedly the PS Vita Slim is being announced tomorrow, so this might not be so great a deal, but I was surprised to find it. Hope it helps someone out!

Sorry, realized I should mention you need to click on more buying choices to see the 199 deal.

The first generation vitas are probably going to remain valuable because of the superior OLED screen (glad I was able to secure two cheaply).  If the Vita Slim improved the screen (like Sony tried to do with later iterations of the psp), instead of downgrading to LCD, then buying the Slim would be a no-brainer, as all the other changes are definite improvements.

That's a comparison vid for the OLED vs LCD.  Doesn't look entirely professional (mostly because the LCD seems to be dirty/smudged and the color settings seem off between the two).

Just to let you know, OP, this has been the price of the bundle ever since it dropped from $250 to $200 on August 21, 2013. I don't think it has even gone out of stock during that time.

FYI Walmart has the same Walking Dead Bundle for $209, but it also includes a Media Stand Kit (Case, Wrist Strap, Cleaning Cloth) and you can choose one additional game (Between 8 options) for free.

 

They also have the regular Walking Dead Bundle for $199 (Since this one appears OOS), and they have a Walking Dead Bundle plus Media Stand kit for $199 too.

I knew the package was msrp, but I thought it was tough to get a hold of. Regardless, the black Friday deal with three games I think is a steal, and from what I've heard the oled screen is better at motion blur, which drives me nuts, so I said why not.

If prices drop like crazy tomorrow, they won't ship yet so you can always cancel. Sorry if it wasn't that great of a deal, I thought it was decent :-)

I saw the black friday bundle on Amazon earlier today, and I thought it was a pretty good deal too. Especially if the original ones become more sought after, like the 60 gig PS3 fat.

I think I'll get the slim Vita since I've been used to LCD and LED screens.  I'll probably get spoiled if I go OLED. If the original Vita is like $150 for this bundle, then I might get the old one with the better screen.

Yeah, the OLED screen is really nice, so that's why I wanted to pick up a spare.  The only negative I heard is that some people don't like the black spots (which I haven't really noticed on mine).  That "defect" is apparently a result of the production process....

Can't decide between getting an oled or an lcd for superior battery life.
