I'd buy a second Vita in a heartbeat for $99. I'm sure this is extreme YMMV which means if you live in Phoenix you can  Fuck  off if you think you're getting in on this deal.

I doubt this BBY KNOWS the Slim Vita is coming stateside, but maybe this means.....

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.

There was another thread about this yesterday, I went to a local BB last night and the systems were on "clearance" for $189.99 ($10 off).  I had them scan a Vita at the register and that's what the price was.  Not a blowout price by a longshot!

Thanks for debunking this, all.  CAGers are pretty familiar with YMMV Best Buy clearance and I figured you all would know what's up versus a random hype machine article online.

I've been looking for a Vita as well, and Cowboom doesn't seem to be selling the used ones anymore.  But the original post for the $99 Vita on clearance was in England, so maybe not here in the US yet.

I convinced the manager at the Acworth, GA location to give it to me for 99.99. He showed me what it said in the system and apparently the device has been discontinued since August. He then announced over his headset that since its "best Buy New Years" (fiscal year end maybe?) that he was selling the rest of them for that price as a Deal of the Day.

That's awesome! Want to pick up the others for your fellow CAG's? I'd gladly pay price + shipping for another one.

I know this is not going on at my store in South Florida. Nor are they deleted in my area since we just recieved a bunch on the truck the other day.

But good luck to those who get them for $99 that is one heck of a deal.

5 local stores and no discounted Vitas. It was a long shot, but I'm really hoping to pick one up before the Slim, I'd rather have the OLED screen.

I'm try finding one these never got one before cause always had a Nintendo handheld and always felt the vita was overpriced at $200 but at $100 I will bite but I see LCD and oled mentioned is one better then the other?

The Vita currently uses an OLED screen, which was one of the major selling points. The Slim uses a LCD screen. The OLED gives a crisper and brighter image, and people tend to agree its better. Although the Slim has still yet to be announced for the US, but I'm sure its just a matter of time.

Holy hell, I thought the signatures on this site were obnoxious...

I'm sure this is extreme YMMV which means if you live in Phoenix you can Fuck off if you think you're getting in on this deal.


Why mention Phoenix specifically? Care to elaborate?

(I'm assuming you assume that I live in Phoenix but just in case I'll note it in this parenthetical) Cause we never seem to get these YMMV deals. I live on one side of town and work on the other so I can easily go just about anywhere to get a deal without having to go too far out of my way. Yet I never see these deals. I don't know if there's just a really active gaming community here that gobbles up everything before the really good drops happen but it seems like clearance is always terrible here. And not just Best Buy; Walmart, K-Mart and Target's clearance sections are always bone dry. Whenever I see a YMMV post I just know it'll be something I won't be able to find in town. I usually just ignore them, but every now and then I take a look and get my hopes up. There's no way in hell these are available in town.

 

Also, why is the shaqfu symbol changing to an actual swear? Is it just Tapatalk? I use it to avoid actually using swears but I saw my own post after the fact and really didn't like it.

Eh. It works out I guess. I would have liked to grab a back up Vita for that OLED master race but none of my PSP's ever broke down on me. Think it's just one of those things people take into consideration these days. Definitely didn't need to spend the money anyway.
