Great initiative and great price to buy now.
Alexious  +   668d ago
I'm a bit jealous, I've spent almost double the price last Christmas and only got an additional 8GB memory card and 3 Months of PS +...

How do we know it is not a prank? Remember this.

If you have never heard of the artist Banksy look up his work and watch his documentary now.

Damn....checked online and their website doesn't even list it as part of the " Deal of the Day" can anybody confirm this is accurate and not some typo from bestbuy or something.

In store only then ?

I was about to drive up to Best Buy in these Crappy winter conditions...
TheUltimateGamer  +   668d ago
Ooo.. I've been thinking about getting one. I suppose now is the time.
JoGam  +   668d ago
Why are you still here? Go!
admiralvic  +   668d ago
Yup. I really wish these wouldn't get posted, since you could make so many articles (or simply make them up) about insane deals only possible at 1 or more stores.

Nothing crazy about's not selling, because there's not enough games, so retailers are trying to dump their stock. It's a no-brainer that Sony should have an optional $500 PS4/Vita bundle, but they're too stubborn to do it.
KonsoruMasuta  +   668d ago
That's because they would lose money on that. They already cut money off the price of a Vita. A 500 Vita and PS4 bundle would mean cutting more money off the price.
Depending on how that sells, it may take a while to make that money back or they might not even make it back at all.

How exactly would they lose money?? At WORST Sony would be selling the Vita at cost with a $500 PS4 bundle, unless you think Best Buy is somehow willing to lose money on the Vita just to dump stock. Sony can lie all they want about why they switched from OLED to LCD....but intelligent people know it was to dramatically lower their mfg. cost. It was NOT because LCD magically started looking better than, or even as good as, OLED. There's no way the Vita can't be manufactured for $100, with it's current tech.

The Vita is priced at $199 for a reason, not just sh%ts and giggles. It cost a bit to make and they still have to give a cut of that to retailers for selling it.

You can't just gave the things away just because they're not selling how you want. You'll go bankrupt in no time flat.

Something tells me you flunked economics 101...

You are incorrect... they're releasing the new model in the US... and cleaning out stock to avoid model confusion.
Alexious  +   668d ago
I think it's coming. Also, there are games and sales are up.
Gridloc  +   668d ago
It's not 99 it's 199...
NegativeCreep427  +   668d ago
Dammit it's the Wi-Fi only model, not the Wi-Fi/3G model. Yep knew it was too good to be true.
MatrixxGT  +   668d ago
Sad that the vita is in the mix of crap nobody buys. Damn you shitty smartphones!
drizzom  +   668d ago
I checked Best Buys online website and I didn't see any prices for the vita at $99.

NVM didn't see the post below. Called and it aint happening in my area :(.

Yeah, it's $199 for me too.
Fixay  +   668d ago

The 3G version is pretty much pointless. Just get a WiFi version and tether it with your phone. Many people have been doing this, however if it was a 4G version i'd understand
Festano  +   668d ago
it's 99 $
Alexious  +   668d ago
This is not about the website, but about local stores, possibly just a few of them.
ccgr  +   668d ago
cheapest I see on their website is $189
ABizzel1  +   668d ago
It says in-store only clearance. You have to call or go to the store.

Still $99 is an amazing deal. DAYUM should have waited.
BakPAin  +   668d ago
Wow a clearance sale get the f out. Not that its not good but could there be bigger news coming soon.
giovonni  +   668d ago
I think this is in selected Stores or, in store only sale have to find out if so I'd get one wifi doesn't matter to me.

giovonni  +   668d ago
Yeah I just called my best buy here and they aren't selling it for that price either

I'm crying...
Kriandis  +   668d ago
Are we sure it is not a prank? Remember this.
admiralvic  +   668d ago
Its true, but YMMV. The issue with these posts is that certain stores do their own thing for their own reason. This could just be a location with a lot of stock and they wanted to get rid of it. This might be a 1 of a kind situation, which might not appear anywhere else. A great example of this is when I got God of War Ascension for $17 dollars.

Around 3 weeks after release, my local Target put GoW: A on clearance. 2 weeks later this hit $17.89 or something like that and was an absurd deal. However, this item was only on sale because they were trying to clear out their gaming area to make room for a new addition. So while I did get this deal, odds are not a single other story in the country would have the same deal. Does this warrant a topic? No. Does this warrant an article on N4G? Heck no.
lordstark  +   668d ago
Just tried 4 best buys in my area and none had that price.
Chrisgamerguy  +   668d ago
I'm going to check my local best buy for this deal
Juiceid  +   668d ago
Pretty much every store in Chicagoland area is a no go.
rhcpfan  +   668d ago
I don't get why people want to buy a device that's going to lose complete support in the next two years.
Protagonist  +   668d ago
Shows how much you know, which is squard!!!
SnazzyGent  +   668d ago
This appears to be only at very, very, VERY select locations (no more than a few in the entire country from what a BB employee related to me).

what a steal
