According to an unnamed source at Gamestop, employees have just received a corporate email stating that consumers can now head up to your local Gamestop and begin purchasing first-party Vita titles right now!
mmm... are Sony expecting HUGE sales of games?
Its about being consumer friendly. You don't want to piss the early adopters off.
Confirmed. I'll post pics of my purchase shortly.
I asked my local GameStop and they said no. I picked up some accessories though.
did you just walk up to the register and ask for the games, or did you have to have them check their email? I just left GameStop so I won't go back tonight, but I'll go back tomorrow when I get out of class. I already have my Vita but I'm desperate for more games since I only have Uncharted lol
Is uncharted good like the console version?
Uncharted: Golden Abyss is awesome! If you liked the console versions, you'll like this one. It plays just as well and looks damn good (though not quite as good as the PS3 games). If you weren't a fan of the console games this won't do much to sway you but for anyone that wants another awesome adventure with Drake, then Golden Abyss will be perfect for you.
Thanks. Uncharted GA for me then, I loved uncharted 1-3.
Might as well sell the Vitas early too.
Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of paying $50 extra for a week early release lol.
anyone considered why Sony might have done this? if you buy the games first you are less likely to be put off the purchase of a Vita by the inevitable bombardment of negativity it will get just prior to release. we've had a lull for a reason. sites are gearing up for one final STAB
I guess you are little overreacting. A lot of major gaming sites have praised the vita. Who cares about those no name sites opinions? Oh and CNET are just apples b*tches. They will flame anything without the half bitten apple.
Yeah! Who cares about those no name sites! Wait...
Yeah. If you check all the reviews on this site for instance. They all at least have a nine for the VITA. Not everyone thinks badly of the VITA like CNET
Most sites have rated the Vita pretty highly and some of them even claim that it's a lot better than the 3DS. Sure CNET gave the Vita a terrible review but if you read it you can tell that they are extremely pro apple because they believe that the iPad is better for gaming than the Vita. XperiaRay
Its not a rumor. I just got home with three games and the charging cradle.
Confirmed. Posted a pic with proof of puchase and Uncharted title. If your Gamestop says no, tell them to check their corporate email for the notification.
that guy over paid, Hot Shots and Wipeout are 29.99 on Amazon.
Same price at my gamestop.
my gamestop doesnt even let you play the demo unit they have. Seriously why are they doing that you need manager approval and them watching you to be able to play it.
Probably trying to make sure nobody steals it like mine was stolen Saturday. Are YOU gonna help them replace theirs if it gets stolen like the one in my store did?
dont open up a gamestop in the hood, problem solved.
Are you saying someone broke parts of the Vita to get it off the metal wiring that tied it to the stand.... or did you not have that?
No point to picking up any Vita games without the Vita, in my opinion. My Vita is paid in full already. My Vita game is also already paid in full. I don't have to worry about them being in stock. Now if only they'd let everyone start selling the systems. What's a week or two anyway?
the covers look so sick!
I'm loving the blue finish on the game cases (I'm bias though... blue is my fav. colour).
I don't think it's fair to other retailers that Gamestop gets first dibs on sales. But then again, it's a dog eat dog world.
thats kinda weird of sony releasing games before their official release date, normally they are strict on not selling games before release dates, but i guess it doesnt matter since nobody has the system.
Will these be counted towards 1st week sales? If not then it sucks that 1st week sales will be lower than expected.....
I was wondering the same thing... I doubt too many people will be buying them ahead of time so hopefully it won't affect the numbers too much
Truth. I'm an assistant manager at Gamestop (not that I enjoy my job, I hate my job) and yes you can get any first party titles as long as the stores have gotten their shipment of games in.
14 days left
I gotta wait. I got $150 and get $20 a week for allowance. So ill be $60 off plus tax so like $80. Gues i could sell some games.
Better to buy them from amazon with release day delivery and no tax..
