Damn.. Just did some searching on the Target website. It looks like the b2g1 deal is a bust for me. Virtua Tennis 4 (out of stock) Ninja Gaiden not listed, Blazblue not in-store until Thursday. So yeah :(

Those of you who ordered games from Lockerz:

Have you received the games yet? I ask because my order was Uncharted, VT, and 32GB.
32GB was delivered but the games are in limbo and the customer support is practically non-existent in my experience ( do they take weekends off??) .

Two separate Targets near me won't be getting larger stock of any Vita related items until next week sometime before Thursday. Only physical games I even saw in the store were Dungeon Hunters and WipEout2048.

Hope Amazon steps up to the plate.

Target street dated all of their vita games, even with every store selling them on the 15th, what a load of shit.

If I can't get Lumines or Rayman from Target, then I might go for these deals from Toys "R" Us instead:

$39.99 - Uncharted
Free $20 giftcard with any game and/or accessory purchase of $50. (Limit one per transaction, $20 giftcard activates 6 hours later, must use by 3/31/12)

I'll probably get Uncharted and an accessory, then return later in the week with the gift card to get another game or accessory.

Thanks! I was coming out with similar figures and thought it couldn't be true because there is seems there is a lot to gain through these deals. Tax really takes a bite out of the savings, and 10 bucks off WipEout and Hsg was actually a pretty decent savings already.

What I need is a buy two get 1 on Amazon after launch when street fighter X Tekken comes out.

why aren't there deals on memory cards, I really want the 32gb card but I know that there will be deals on that $99 price point soon, but what the hell can I do with a Vita with no memory card?

The douchbag kid at the Target counter repeated "Wednesday" to me three times as I explained to him most games are out.

Now I'll just wait for Amazon to do a sale.

Went to Target this morning and they only had Ninja Gaiden out on the floor. I asked about the Vita games and a manager went in back, had to check the release dates first, then brought out all their stock of Vita games. Everything was dated for the 15th and he had no idea.

I bought Uncharted, Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Lumines. Lumines is being carried in stores, it seems. The system wasn't doing the sale yet, but customer service gave me the deal, and actually gave me Uncharted as me free game!

Just browsing CAG, seems that a lot of Targets are saying the sale doesn't start until the 22nd, so either I lucked out or they're just reading the ad wrong. The games are dated for the 15th, so there's no reason to not have them out on the floor.

I think I am going to pick up Uncharted at TRU and then just go to Target on Wednesday to try and get VT4, FIFA, and UMvC3.

The FEB launch idea sure has every store confused.

Heres an annoying thing I just found out.

If you read a message sent to you on PSN through your vita, the message is not marked as read once you log into PSN on your ps3.

I sent and received like 10 messages on my vita, and they were all recognized as new unread messages in my in inbox when I just turned on my ps3. Had to open them all again on my ps3 for them to be recognized as "read"

I'd say you're normally right, but...


Best Buy price match successful.

Got Uncharted, Lumines, and UMvC3 for $75 after using a $20 reward zone certificate.

They are not carrying Rayman in stores.

This was also from a manager in the media area who I know has been there for at least 5 years since I used to work at best buy. Maybe a new leaf/edict from the corporate ladder above to be more customer service friendly since BB is struggling big time lately.

3ds value is $100 for comparison.

I wanted to trade in my mint silver PSP3004, logitech case, 4 GB card and with 15 AAA games. They only would offer me 70 euro/ 92 $ at Gamemania ( Netherlands ). I was like 'WTF?'

I'd rather put it in the microwave. Those guys are fubar. I'll just keep it, for my kids then.

Don't count on tomorrow, it's President's Day. I also don't think Katamari is offically released yet either. Amazon and Lockerz both list it as a 02/21/11 release.

Rather drop it in the lake than help them turn a profit @ $35.

What do you tell them regarding the target ad? I dont have the actual ad but have a picture of it on my iphone, think that will suffice? Kind of nervous about this lol.
