#14059965 PS Vita Deals & Discussions Thread

Posted by Markmallow on 29 September 2018 - 07:06 PM

A friend of mine is selling me danganronpa v3 ps vita for $23. Is a good price? I have the other ones but never play them.

If you do intend to play them that is a great deal. The Vita version has become quite rare and expensive lately. The cheapest used copy on eBay right now is $50 and that’s for the cartridge only.

I highly recommend you give the series a go. They actually turned out being my favorite games on the Vita.

It's apparently a set of side stories: https://spike-chunso...ogram/home.html

Well, I’m sold now. I had no intention to buy this, because I thought it was just Steins Gate and 0 remastered with anime graphics. I was content with having both on Vita with original graphics, but they had to go and add something like that. Oh well, I’m pretty excited about new content.

It's easily the worst game in the series. The level design is just incredibly haphazard, the metroidvania elements seem positively tacked on, and the only challenge is achieved through a few cheap sections. The writing is stale and the jokes are pretty much plagiarized wholesale from previous entries. There's no interesting character development compared to the story in previous entries, either. None of these are cardinal sins in and of themselves, but together they make for an incredibly weak experience. Literally the only thing it has going for it is being the first HD entry.

I guess it helps that I’ve never played any of the previous games. Maybe if I would have played some of them I wouldn’t like this game as much.

I can respect your opinion, especially coming from someone who’s played all the games. Honestly, makes me really want to try the other games if this really is the worst one.

I was fortunate enough to have a GameStop that let me do a return/rebuy to get the buy 2 get 1 free deal.

I got Arms, Hyrule Warriors, and Pokken for about $32.50 a piece. Pretty happy about that, especially since I’ve yet to see a deal for any of these games.

Dragon Ball Fighterz is $29.99 (GCU $23.99) at BestBuy. It’s only this price today, because it’s the deal of the day.

I tried the demo out tonight and liked it. It's quirky but it kept me intrigued. If I want to buy the game tomorrow do you recommend I just go to the store and ask for a used copy or order it online? Or does it just not even matter?

I would definitely go to a store, because you never know what you are going to get when buying online. You could very well get the cartridge only if you buy online.

I would just go over to the pre-owned Switch games and grab the case yourself. That way if there’s more than one used copy you can pick the case that’s in the best shape, if you care about that.

Also, if there’s more than one copy and you don’t like the condition of the cartridge just ask to see the other one. Employees have always been pretty cool about it when I tell them I’m a collector.

Lol ebay sellers are listing the pikachu and eevee system for 600+ sad thing is they wont sell

I have a feeling resellers will regret buying these. I could be wrong, but I fully expect these to be easy to get this holiday season.

My Punchline pre-order at Amazon got the 20% discount applied at some point. I don't know when, but I remember checking in the days leading up to the end of the Prime discount and seeing it didn't apply. One final parting gift from Prime, I suppose.

Just checked and they applied 20% off my Vita order as well. That’s pretty crazy, because I checked right up to the last hour for the 20% to show up and it never did.

I’m definitely going to buy Donkey Kong. I really wish Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Hyrule Warriors, and Pokken was this price though.

I will need to fire up my ps1 version but I don't remember grandia looking that bad and I played it pretty recently.

Pick my next game poll is up for those who feel like voting. https://gamefaqs.gam...-games/76934903

Voted Breath of Fire 4. It’s a fantastic game and in my opinion one of the best RPG’s on the PS1.

#14039109 1st party Nintendo Switch games $44.99/$35.99 GCU at Best Buy

Those are some good deals. Too bad I already have them all.

I really wish Xenoblade was a part of this deal. I’ve been waiting for a sale on that for a while now. I feel like the game has never gone on sale.

Did anyone else hear about the Spyro Trilogy on PS4 only having the 1st game on disc? Apparently from this article you have to download 2 and 3. If this is true it’s so disappointing and just straight up lazy.


Thought I’d post this here since a lot of people in the thread care about physical games.

Thanks, but no PS4. Got Xbox one.

I just watched an unboxing video for the Xbox One version and it has two discs as well. So that’s also an option if you want all the games physical.

Didn’t like how they did half games on cart and rest digital

If you have a PS4 you could get that version of the Mega Man X Collection. It comes with two discs in the case, so no digital downloads. Just thought I’d let you know if you want all 8 games physical.
