UK retailer Gamestation offering PS Vita for £99.99 if you trade-in a 3DS

Standing up? We suggest you find yourself a seat.

UK retailer Gamestation is planning on flogging the forthcoming PS Vita for just £99. Well, providing you're willing to relinquish a 3DS, that is. (3DS, Nintendo DS, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

Not worth it. Sell your 3DS on eBay or any other online market site instead.

not worth it 3DS is on a roll with amazing games, while Vita dont have great games yet only uncharted golden abyss which is just good and selling poor in japan outsold by 3DS in launch and continiously diposed by 3DS.

But i think owning both is good then you can play all great games, Lets hope vita gets some nice exclusive rather then some ps3 ports.

have you read what you wrote.
lets analyze

"3ds is on a roll with amazing games, while vita dont have great games yet only uncharted which is selling poor in japan outsold by 3ds in launch"

lol. the vita is launching with more original games than the 3ds has garnered in a whole year. then you discredit the ratings of the vitas launch games by saying only uncharted is good but it doesnt matter because 3ds outsold it in japan.

i wont tell anyone what to like or what to do with their money but the ps vita is a way better system and value than a 3ds. id take a ps vita with all the launch titles over a 3ds with all its games that are available to date and its my preference. i have a 3ds and my support for it has ended. if nintendo makes a majora's mask i may buy it like i did zelda oot but the ps vita is so much better that itll be my portable device of choice. i like gaming but im not a gamer that goes out and buys every game that is released because of hype or because friends have it. i respect that people love the 3ds which is fine but delusion ensues when people start delving into a realm where the 3ds is objectively superior.

How is this not worth it!? A PS vita is retailing at £230 so they are basically buying your 3DS for £130 (230-130=100) which is a great deal considering a new 3DS retails at £135, you really think someone is going to buy a 3DS for more than £130 when you can go out and buy a new one for £135!? your having a laugh mate.

Totally worth it. A kids toy for a real gaming handheld.

for the point of fanboy maybe... from the point of a real gamer: one great gaming system for another gaming system...

Still too expensive....

Well if you sold your 3DS you could get a Vita for a 100£ and if that's too much for you. You probably couldn't afford either a 3DS or a Vita which both cost over 100£. Not everyone in the world is poor and those with the power to buy anything that they want do so.

Since I'm not poor and I love portable gaming. I will buy a Vita at launch with a 16GB memory card and a large amount of games. Then when the 3DS lite comes out I will drop a big wad of cash for it and a ton of used games.
