Are these deals only for the US or will we see these deals for Canadian Black Friday as well?

Don’t stay with it.

those bundles look nice, but while it may not be the intention for someone to buy into a new system to play old games, you cant deny the benefit it offers. Vita and Bc is purely digital and for someone like myself who has a psp and a slew of UMD games, it offers me nothing in that regard. :(

+ Logical_Dolphin on November 16th, 2012 at 10:16 am said:

Many retailers are just advertising the Call of Duty Vita bundle at the Black Friday price, even though they also carry the Assassin’s Creed Bundle. Does that mean that only that bundle being advertised at the special price is being discounted, or will all the bundles be discounted anyway?

    It will depend on the retailer – make sure to check before you go.

At this point, this $199 price should stick for these bundles moving forward. I bet more Vita’s start flying off the shelves at $199 with either COD or AC3 and a 4GB memory card. If Sony has to subsidize these bundles to be $199 then that is what’s needed to keep this excellent handheld afloat.


57

+ IceColdKilla44 on November 16th, 2012 at 10:39 am said:

Some good deals for non-Vita owners, but I was really hoping there would be some discounts on the higher capacity memory cards.

Having a 32gb card would actually allow me to take advantage of PS Plus on Vita without having to delete/redownload everything.


58

+ Kedaro on November 16th, 2012 at 10:39 am said:

I like these deals a lot it has me considering buying my kids vita’s as well, but I have to agree, about the storage option being a little expensive for us when we have games to consider at $20-$70 and potential multiple systems(see above), I think the community needs an explanation(might help sort us out) as to why Sony decided to make their own storage option, instead of using a more commonly consumed peripheral, I’ve actually held off on buying games just because of space constraints… so I don’t think it was a wise business decision to make cards just to profit, and in the end it’s all business, so that’s an inconsistency to me.

PS:I know Black Friday is almost entirely exclusive to the US but are there any similar deals up in Canada?

looks ace :P

but they should have put Uncharted 3 GOTY on the PS3 bundle as well!

+ EmperorKorea on November 16th, 2012 at 10:49 am said:

they should just make the vita bundles stay at $200 permanently. no one is buying the vita at its current price.

Err i mean Black Friday deals almost entirely exclusive to the USA…. not Black Friday itself…

+ purse317 on November 16th, 2012 at 10:56 am said:

I want a Vita bu those memory cards cost an arm and a leg for crying out loud. The $199 price is ok but I don’t play shooters I.m not into Lego games, and Liberations got ok reviews for the most part.

Gimme a deal on memory cards and I’ll just take my free plus games and be happy.


63

+ Kedaro on November 16th, 2012 at 10:59 am said:

@60 EmperorKorea

I agree, it’s a very good price point, maybe they could cut the physical games out of the deal, include some digital content instead(help spread belief in digital license), and include a bigger storage option, 16g for example. I think they’d probably fly off the shelves at that price.


64

+ nycredude on November 16th, 2012 at 11:00 am said:

@ purse

Where can you buy an arm and a leg for $80? J/K
Just look online for a deal. Amazon has it for $80 for 32gb atm. I am sure there will be more sales comes black friday.


65

+ nycredude on November 16th, 2012 at 11:02 am said:

I actually want Sony to make a larger capacity memory card. And also update the firmware so that every time I change my memory cards it keeps the icon in place so that I don’t have to keep rearranging them. So annoying. I have two 32gb and I hate changing them. Sucks!

+ Dookykong on November 16th, 2012 at 11:10 am said:

@52 i have a year warranty still have the receipt but i dont know how it works so i just dont wanna use it until i need it like drop it and the screen crack or something its really not that bad


67

+ Kedaro on November 16th, 2012 at 11:11 am said:

@64 nycredude

I think that’s what was intended by said comment to be too high of a price, even at $80 on amazon, it’s a risky purchase for people living paycheck to paycheck, and it’s almost hard to make sense of the price even if not.

that aside.

In this day and age, even with speedier technology like SSD, etc. I refuse to believe that any storage medium should exceed $2 per gig, I can get a 480gig SSD on tigerdirect for $369, that’s the best storage medium for computers possible at less than a $1 per gig.


68

+ nycredude on November 16th, 2012 at 11:37 am said:

@ kedaro

When it comes to storage. Generally the high the capacity the lower the price per gig. That is why i would like a larger capacity memory card. I wouldn’t mind paying more for a larger card. I understand not everyone can just buy these cards at $80 a pop but I think they have to make money somehow. It’s a lot easier to swallow now that playstation plus is coming for vita.

Eventually the price will come down so all we have to do is be patient. it’s hard to believe but the vita hasn’t been out a year yet.


69

+ CatatonicAlex on November 16th, 2012 at 11:37 am said:

@66
(URGENT)
The 1 year manufactures warranty DOES NOT cover ACCIDENTAL damage.
You MUST BUY that plan WITHIN 30 DAYS of your purchase.
However, the one year warranty will cover the pixel and any other similar issues, but if you can still return the system to the store for a full refund- then i would return it and rebuy a new one to get this bundle discount.

*I have dropped my vita twice from a 3ft high table onto a ceramic floow after pulling the power cord… the screen is pretty strong/sturdy- no apple glass instant shatter screen here. You can also do what I have done and tie a sturdy shoe lace to one of the bottom loops to prevent dropping it and also as an anti-theft deterrent. ;)

+ TwinDad on November 16th, 2012 at 11:46 am said:

For the folks that asked. Only need to list Vita deals as the PS3 is standard at all retailers.

VIta Bundles:

The LEGO bundles is Target Exclusive.
The ACL Bundle is a Gamestop Exclusive
The COD Bundle is a Best Buy and Wal-Mart exclusive.

Amazon will announce on Monday what their Back Friday deals will be.


71

+ TwinDad on November 16th, 2012 at 11:54 am said:

@nycredude

Your crazy if you don’ t think they make about $80 on the sale of the Vita based on manufacturing costs. The parts are super cheap Cell Phone innards. The most expensive part is the screen which is about $60. I know it doesn’t include marketing, R&D, and more, but the device is cheap to make.

Blarg! I should’ve waited! I could’ve had that nice white Vita and perhaps a 32gb memory card instead of a 16gb… >.=.<

I’ve been holding out for the AC3 Vita bundle and am very glad to see it’s going to be a BF deal. I have been checking BF sites and only ever see the BlOps2 bundle listed, which was making me sad.

@xClayMeow,

They will have that Bundle at that Price for Black Friday. I believe they start their sale at Mid Night. What I’m not sure is if another retailer that is regional will also have the bundle. So I’m not sure the word “exclusive” should have been used, but GameStop will indeed have that bundle for black Friday.

+ sagohichi on November 16th, 2012 at 1:13 pm said:

Vita with 4GB memory is useless.
Just sell Vita with 16 GB memory and PSN+ 1 year membership at $250. This bundle will give a confident to new customer for the starting cost. PS Vita’s biggest problem is not about price or games, it’s a fragmentation of service policy. Simply, they are acting like a bunch of small companies without any communication.
Why couldn’t you guys just put a giant sticker of the new PSN+ service for Vita, and pack two necessary items. 16GB memory card and 1 year membership coupon, together with Vita for this black friday? Vita division in SCE doesn’t know about PSN+?

Drop memory card prices Sony for heavens sake. Stop being so stubborn. That is the thing that is overpriced.

The Vita will drop in price next year, so people should just stfu about that. Memory cards need the immediate drop.

+ mystery75 on November 16th, 2012 at 2:00 pm said:

Handheld system bundles should be less than a full console bundle.

Certainly Vita is a nice piece of hardware and with a memory card, a game and system is a tremendous value, but I don’t think people who don’t know any better would splurge for a handheld system when they could just get a home console for the same price.

I think the Vita bundle should be 150 and the ps3 bundle 200. If nothing else, make the Vita bundle a good as the PS3 bundle.

I would be picking this up, if it were not for the EXCESSIVE price of the upgraded memory cards. Sony has always had major problems with the pricing of their memory cards. There is no reason for the price, especially since you can not save on the game cartridges and with the ever increasing amount of DLC content. :(

Please have a black friday deal on ps vita memory cards! Or maybe while your at it just drop the price of them altogether.
I’ve been waiting patiently to buy a new card as my 8gb has been full for awhile, and they are just to darn expensive! I’ve started to enjoy buying everything on my vita digital now, but since my card has been filled, it is very annoying switching out games that I want to have with me on the go. Not being able to make the jump and buy a 32gb memory card has actually made me hold off on buying games from psn because of the lack of space I have. While it may seem that overcharging us on the memory cards is making you a boat load of cash, in reality there are people like me who don’t buy games on a whim when window shoping the psn, because I am always worried about how much space i have left.

Make some bundles with no games and one good memory card 16/32 GB.

+ Darth-Krayt on November 16th, 2012 at 3:25 pm said:

I REALLY want a Vita, and I would have certainly bought one of these bundles for the price, but the problem is, I’m not buying a Vita that isn’t 3G. It’s a waste to me. If these bundles were availible with 3G you would have had a new unit sold here. Even though I wouldn’t use 3G right away because of the rediculous AT&T prices for 3G. But eventually the price will drop or at least change to unlimited data for a decent monthly prices, and I want a 3G Vita for when that time comes.

I REALLY was hoping to get a Vita on Black Friday, but since it’s only the Wi-Fi models that are on sale I’m either going to have to put off owning a Vita for even longer, or I’m just going to have to buy a used unit (which I honestly HATE doing). Gamestop has 25% off all used electronics on Black Friday, so if they have a 3G Vita used, I’m going to have to go with it.
