This may be the best PlayStation Vita deal we've seen

GameZone writes, "Gamers looking to purchase a PlayStation Vita this holiday season should check out TigerDirect as the online retailer is offering one of the best discounts I've seen for Sony's handheld. Normally $199.99, you can purchase a 3G and WiFi PS Vita for just $139.99." (PS Vita)

It was on sale in Canada for $99.99 at one point, but yes this is a good deal.
lifesanrpg  +   228d ago
Holy crap, really!? That's an insane deal
mewhy32  +   228d ago
It's a good deal but you have to mail in a rebate to get the good price. Rebates are notoriously unreliable and I'd just rather get the price w/o having to mail in the rebate and wait 6 months, if at all , for the check to come in.

Be wary of Mail In Rebates from these types of sites, sometimes they take foreverr...

you have to keep track and put in effort to make sure it actually comes through.

i missed that deal, but i got my ps vita(walking dead bundle 3g) for $120 incld tax. so i am still happy
TheBrit  +   227d ago
@mewhy32 that makes no sense if you think about it.
You would rather pay the 179 for it because you don't like rebates but, if you mail in the rebate and forget about it, when the check comes it's a nice surprise right.

Either way your initially paying the 179 so why not take the couple of minutes mail it in and get money back??

Is it a brand new or refurbished Vita? Tiger Direct is notorious for selling refurbished items.
lifesanrpg  +   228d ago
Under "Specs", it says it's new condition. Hopefully they aren't trying to pull a fast one.
ragincrinz  +   228d ago
that means refurbished if its `new condition`
b777conehead  +   228d ago
no in specs
condition new so there new

The Vita has a good price but I wont buy one in till they make the memory cards cheaper.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   228d ago
Who knows when that will be they dropped in price slightly this year.
ABizzel1  +   228d ago
I need a 128GB Memory Card. PS+ just eats it up.
king_george  +   228d ago
What would be really awesome is if they just used a cheaper format like regular sd cards or something. That wont happen tho :/
kB0  +   228d ago
It might, they did switch to regular micro usb for the new Vita.

Anything can happen.

I do agree with ppl though we need a lot more memory sizes, PS+ and the fact that I purchase more digital has eaten all my space!
Killzoner99  +   228d ago
If you don't own a Vita by now you're not really a gamer. Fact.
Neonridr  +   228d ago
my 3DS begs to differ.
DeadMansHand  +   228d ago | Well said
That's ridiculous. I don't own a vita yet. But, used to go all day at school in the 80s without eating so I could use my lunch money at 7-11 after school and stand in line for an hour to play Super Mario Brothers. I owned the original Atari and played Asteroids in pull ups. I bought the original NES, SNES, Sega and Intellivision on release day. I broke up with girls in high school to play the original PlayStation more. I slept outside best buy for the ps2, Ps3 and 360. I own a WiiU and ps4 now and play everyday. I'm a GAF supporter and member and come here daily to read up in gaming news. I'm 40 years old. I'm willing to bet ive gamed more in my life than you.

Hear,hear. Bubbles to you :)
specialguest  +   228d ago
Sorry man, your entire gaming experience and history was erased because killzoner99 said it was a "Fact". Lol
Yep  +   228d ago
Putting "Fact" at the end of an opinion does not make it a fact. Fact.
CaptainN  +   228d ago
Thats like me saying if you dont own a 3DS, you must have no games to play all !!!

See how easy it is to troll, so lets be more mature !!
RustedMan  +   228d ago
I just can't believe the Vita is actually out. What the hell happened to this thing? I was seconds away from getting one myself, but I was waiting for an influx of games to choose from. Is there anything coming out for it in the near future?
etownone  +   228d ago
Borderlands 2 and..... God of War 1&2

Besides that.... Idk.

I got one. It's not worth it.

Kill zone is the only must have killer app.

Tearaway wants to have a word with you. Not everyone can be quite as into shooters.
ground_beef  +   228d ago
Isn't there a ps4+ psvita deal these days. I think I read it here that for 500 u can get the ps4+psvita deal! not sure though.
MacUser1986  +   228d ago
I got mine for $60, just happened to be in line at GameStop and a gentlemen was trading his in. They offered him $50 and I said $60. He took the offer and I was thrilled, it was in mint condition too.
zeee  +   228d ago
Holy !@#$! That is a good deal indeed. Hope you are enjoying it!
iliimaster  +   228d ago
damn lucky man talk about the right place at the right time
KratosSaveUs  +   228d ago
I want a Vita but I'm broke and with my Christmas money I'm buying another DS4 for my PS4 and AC4 and preordering InFamous Second Son. And the rest will be for clothes. So I can't get one yet. Maybe next year.
iliimaster  +   228d ago
wow that price !!!!! tigerdirect is a great site i buy alot of stuff from them very tech friendly site thats a absolute steal
S2Killinit  +   228d ago
wow 139 is a good deal. I might buy one as a christmas gift to my gf
sirwut  +   228d ago
If I have known this was coming, I would have waited. I bought the 199 walking dead bundle months ago. With ps plus, I don't even have to buy games lol.
RFornillos4  +   228d ago
the best deal was Zavvi's 19.99 Vita bundle!!! (albeit the obvious mistake)...
speedforce131  +   228d ago
Pretty nice deal but I don't see how this beats the Amazon Walking Dead bundle which includes system, 4 games, memory card for 189.99?
Plagasx  +   227d ago
Rebates.... -_-
Flames76  +   227d ago
To bad the PSvita is garbage and doesnt sell at all.I bought one for $150 and sold it after a month.I can see why sony has lost over 2 billion on it.They could sell it for $99 and it still wouldnt sell
Favre-orite  +   227d ago
Do all Vita deals include the newer version with the less expensive LCD screen?

Are there any Vita's on sales with the OLED display discounted or part of a bundle?

Do most gamers see improvements in image quality (e.g. vibrant colors, resolution, refresh rate, etc.) between the two sceen types? Any difference in screen size? Does one type display an image that's easier to see when playing outside on a bright day?

Sorry for all the Q.'s. Maybe I should've Googled some of those.
