The vita slim has only been out for a while, but it appears that many major retailers no longer have the fat. Does anyone know a place where I can buy the fat (bundle or stand alone) at the regular price?

The slim version hasnt come out yet in N/A. The initial release of the slim will be on may 6. So all retailers still carry the fat slim in stores. Your best bet would be instore ganestop. All the fat systems are 199.99. They usually have stock still

Every retailer I've checked doesn't have it in stock, online and locally. If you know a retailer that still has them, please do share the information.

Tigerdirect.com has stock! Why do you want a fat vita anyway? If you have fry's near you, they also have stock in store.

They have different screens, one is LCD vs OLED (or something like that) most say the old one is nicer.

@CAGkrazy: thanks! Unfortunately after reading around it seems that tiger direct is awful. The ratio of bad reviews to at least decent reviews is about 4:1.

The fat vita has a beautiful oled screen. The slim has an LCD. While it still looks good, it doesn't hold up against the oled.

Tiger Direct is a very good site for PC parts. I can vouch for that myself. I'm not sure about game consoles, but I'm not sure why that would be different. I did notice that Amazon had no price next to the older ones yesterday, but I didn't go further than just glancing. Like the post above says, call your local Gamestop, Best Buy, or the like. That will be your safest bet. This is the reason I bought a used one from a coworkers brother about a month ago. I was worried the OLED model would become extinct when the new model was released. Best of luck.

Many members here have had good luck buying theirs from cowboom.com They typically go for $100-120 though some may not come with the AC adapter and a memory card of at least 8GB should at least be bought.

Try to find a used one at GS if $170 is an acceptable price. You can inspect it before purchase.

Or maybe an independent game store. My local one, Bodach's Games, is sitting on a white one.

Frys now have a refb. vita bundle with a case and FFX&X-2 HD game for 149.99, but you need to pick it up at store.
