Since I missed the PS Vita Black Friday deal I've been wanting one real bad. I see a lot of places having the AC3 and Black OPs deal with 50 dollar gift cards, and I'm not sure if I should go ahead and get one of those, or wait and see if a better deal shows up before xmas.

I seriously doubt you'd find anything close to the Amazon BF sale before christmas.

If you really want one I'd say pull the trigger, it's a cool little system.

The addition of a $50 gift card gives it the same basic value as the Black Friday prices (maybe $20 difference). That will enable you to upgrade your memory card for free, so by my mind, you should go for it.

If you own a PS3 and already are a Plus subscriber, it is a no brainer.

I don't have a PS3 but I'm banking on it having a long life alongside the PS4. What I was thinkign about doing was buying a Vita, and having my brother buy a 3rd controller for his ps3 and buy PS All Stars Battle Royale and giving me the download code for the vita version if that's possible.

Frys has many many games for the Vita for $15

I'd say hold off unless you're a Persona fan, since playing 2/3P/4 is almost all my system is good for at the moment.

I got my at launch and love it. Granted, I only have a few games (Dungeon Hunter, MK, Assassin's Creed, and Persona 4, not including PSP and PS1 titles), but it's a solid little system.

unless you're planning on sharing the same PSN ID acct. with your brother, it won't work to use his copy from the PS3 version, as there is no code, you get what's called "Disc" benefits, so the Vita version downloads to the PS3 & then can transfer to the Vita, but is all tied to the 1 PSN acct.

I'd say that's a great deal on the bundle & if you're interested in the system, you won't likely see a better deal before Christmas than that ... great handheld.

Agreed, only reason to own a vita.

aww man that blows. I could probably just have him buy the game and put it on my account on his Ps3

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:00:18 PM PST
then he will have to install the game on his account first!

I'll probably just wait for better games.

Wut?? The PSV has more higher rated games than the 3DS....lol

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:12:25 PM PST
A lot of 3DS titles are underrated by critics/Metacritic.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:16:45 PM PST
I could see a game being underrated by a reviewer or two.. But by 50?
Nah.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:20:23 PM PST
yup... especially this one.

this game should be 11/10...easy

Who said anything about the 3DS? Getting a bit defensive over that brick you purchased, perhaps?

EDIT: plus everyone can just pick and choose shovelware to make fun of on any system. Look, I can do it too

Oh wait, that was supposed to be one of Vita's most important games this holiday season...

Brick? LOL...I have over 19 Vita games for it not to mention many PSP, PCE, PSM, Mini and PSOne games

Cosidering how many games the Vita has in the short amount of time that it has been out. now how many more games does the Vita have over the 3DS [that has been out much longer] that are scored higher...lol

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:35:32 PM PST
No, on MetaCritic it'll just take 1-3 negative reviews to bring it down. I don't really care though, Metacritic is terrible.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:35:58 PM PST
Yeah, give shovelware as an example, that's fair.

Vita-exclusive owners need all the handicap they can get for their situation, so I understand.

But at least they're getting SOME good news recently, what with the PSN+ goodies and a great PS2 port.

Well, the 3DS has 23 games with Metascores over 80 and the Vita has 15.

Edit: 6 of the 3DS games in this category are ports 7 of the Vita's are.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2012 8:40:13 PM PST
that mainly what the 3DS has that it can claim it has more compared to the Vita... The 3DS has more games[even thought most is shovelware].... that's it!
