That's a good point - I, like others, may have missed samurai warriors 4. I see there's some in stock around me, just wasn't on my radar, I suppose. Vita selection is getting rough. I went to 7 gamestops this week and only managed to pick up 5 vita games that I needed CIB - I was hoping to get a ton more during this sale. Few things I'm noticing about Vita in my area (I suspect all around though) - less and less CIB and more generic cases, and little to no inventory changes (imo due to the fact that vita owners don't get rid of their games). At one of the Gamestops, the worker mentioned that someone came in earlier and bought a handful of the Vita games. This makes me wonder if things are only going to get worse for vita games in the wild after this sale is over.

I don't have a PS4, but my friend just got one and saw it. The GameStop here have about 7 Vita games. I couldn't find anything to match up the 3 for $25.

There's more PS4 games on sale vs Xbox one. Is it worth getting Vita games over the PS3 counterpart?

IMO, generally, yes it is worth getting Vita ports over PS3 ports. There's a few reasons for this:

 

1. Vita games are more collectible (hold their value better, fewer made, harder to find, etc.)

2. Vita games rarely come with anything besides the box and make it easier to find complete (don't have to worry about instructions) - though as time goes by, all that's going to be left is generic cases because of my point about Vita owners not selling their games.

3. Combined with the PS TV, a good chunk of Vita games can be played on the Vita or on a TV screen.

4. Vita games and cases are small and do not take up a lot of space.

 

Keep in mind I own a PS3, but I don't buy/collect for it any longer. I mainly only buy Vita, PS4, Switch, and an occasional 3DS game, so maybe I'm biased. It's not all great collecting Vita games now, though. It's so hard for me to find any games that I need/want anymore. Soon, I'm going to have to resort to buying online. If you have any interest in a Vita games, and they are CIB, you should pick them up now, because I think it's going to be more difficult. Eventually, Gamestop will stop selling Vita games, then it's just local or online at that point.

Picked up 3 Vita games on Friday - Muramasa Rebirth (CIB), Zero Escape (no case at all, game only) and the Sly Collection (generic case).

 

Already had the Sly games on PS3, and thought - "Hey, why not get them for every system since they're so good?". Jokes on me - only the first two games are on the cartridge, the 3rd is download-only via a code in the original case.... Should've looked it up ahead of time, but nope. I'll keep it anyway, just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone wasn't aware.

Thanks for this post, I was thinking about getting it for Vita as well but will pass now. I already have it on the PS3.

The Atelier games seem to have a love or hate feeling on those games, as some think they're just plain boring. As they don't have no epic story(like save the world) and the game focuses more on gathering items. I've tried the Artland Trilogy and Ayesha and couldn't get into any of them. Watch video walkthroughs on Youtube of the Atelier games, that should tell you if you'll like it or not.

Ar Tonelico is another good one, although it uses the visual novel style for dialogue a lot. It also uses a combat system similar to the "Tales of" series. As for Guided Fate Paradox, never played it, but have heard it's pretty boring.

How do you find the turn based charge battles of ArT in any way similar to the real time action combat style of Tales?

I’ll pitch in that I really enjoyed the Arland trilogy, but hated the Dusk trilogy. ArT :qoga is full of typos and grammar errors and inconsistent word usage. The newest ArNoSurge had an interesting story, but I found the gameplay to be trash.

picked up Goldeneye reloaded, Call of duty 2, and Battlefantasia, with elite pro 3 for 20 is a pretty good deal, sadly a lot of the stuff I was looking at was cart only, like every 3ds RPG they had

I collect some PS3 games mostly arcade shooters.
I did collect 3ds games cib. As for bits, picked up a vita slim used for $50 and the games during target clearance. I don't see much vita at gamestop anymore. Wish secret of Mana was on the Vita.

I spent like $600+ So far in Buffalo, NY alone at all the Gamestops. Was able to pocket a MGS HD Collection Limited Edition because someone traded it in and it was the same as the regular edition price wise. When you go in ask for a list of $14.99 Exact for the Major Consoles, made it a lot easier finding titles rather then looking at each section over and over again.

I thought it was. I don’t think there’s a physical release, though. I heard the remake is kinda trash anyway, but I had some great times with the original!

I hope you left some vita games for me!  I need to try and get out today or tomorrow.

Congrats Goguenator on the great vita finds.  Most of the stores around me are pretty dried up and bareboned cart-only in regards to Sony's handheld.

Make sure you get a new copy then. The GOTY edition is just the base game with a voucher for all the DLC. It's not on disc.

I just checked the website thinking the God of War 3 remaster would be $14.99 or less. It's still $18.99 lol wtf....A new copy is $19.99 and they still want $18.99 for used. Smh

I picked up 3d Dot Game Heroes, the Journey Collection, and Medal of Honor Airborne on PS3 the other day.

After Elite Pro, each game was only $6.66. Regular priced $14.99 each.

Great sale, but still- this is a dangerous for collectors, wallets beware!
