Wait a minute, the vita deal is the same price as the ps3? Interesting choice, i think.

PS3- Super Slim, 250GB system, Uncharted Dual Collection, and InFAMOUS collection. For $199

VITA- AC3L and Black Ops Declassified bundle. Also, Lego Batman 2 (no memory card for this one). All bundles are $199.

May pick up a PS3, killer deal here.

EDIT: If you want a website source, go to blog.us.playstation.com

odd that the only child friendly game (Lego Batman 2) is the oldest of the bundled titles, & the only one without a memory card ... seems they're wanting the units for families to dig a bit deeper, as they will need a memory card to even save their game ... that seems a bit slanted ...

I'm in debate over a 2nd PS3 system ... it's not a must, but would be a great addition. especially as more & more, my son has taken over my PS3 ... possibly the Wii U at some point, but given our vast library of games for the PS3, he may continue to be using it constantly ... I wish the $200 deal was not for the top load unit .... hmm. the bundled games have zero value for us, as we own all of them already ...

I actually love the top loading system. Its not as cheap people make it out to be.

To anybody who thinks this isnt a great deal for these systems, think of it this way: You can get a PS3 and VITA, 254GB in all, and six games, for $100 under the price of a 16GB wifi only iPad.

I don't think that is the best comparison to make since people in the market for an iPad or similar tablet are not likely to get video game consoles instead. Just say it's a great value (which it is.)

Jason, jason, jason. I was merely putting into context how ridiculously overpriced apple products are. (As itype this on a mac)

It's not a big deal, but I love the slot loading on the old PS3's. It's just slick.

Howdy all! I work on Amazon's VG team, just thought I'd share a lot of our deals for next week. I'll have some more info to share in the coming days, we have a pretty awesome deal coming on Black Friday on an Assassin's Creed Vita bundle.

[-]AmazonJoshAmazon Marketing Manager[S] 7 points 1 day ago

It's the Amazon Gold Box on Friday, all day. I wouldn't plan to wait until 11pm in case we do run out, but it's not going to run out in two hours, if that helps.

That guy probably does not even work for Amazon. You guys need to just buy the bundle from us and get instant gratification opposed to waiting a day or two for shipment.

PS3 250GB Bundle w/Uncharted 1&2 AND Infamous 1&2 $199.99 W/Free Shipping
Not sure if this is a mistake on Newegg's side, but this is one Heck of a deal, since most retailers have either Uncharted OR Infamous sold separately not both. 5 games TOTAL in this one since you gotta realize the DLC Infamous: Festival of Blood is also included.

PS3 top loading system is nice. Keep the console dust-free though.

This guy does work for amazon. I called and they investigated the heck out of this. Why would I buy the COD Vita bundle from you at 199.99 + tax from best buy and have to wait in a ridiculous long line when I can get the ACIII bundle, 3months PS+, All Stars Battle Royal for 179.99 and no tax...
