It seems like a fair price, but remember you basically require a memory card - not included - and probably a game.

The deal-powers that be have deemed this deal "not as good" as the deals from Play and Amazon.

Have you even looked at Play and Amazon? It is better than them.

peeps1686d ago

for just the console...

Asda:
Console - £196.98
Uncharted - £37.97
8GB card - £27
Total= £261.95

Play:
Console - bundle deal
Uncharted - bundle deal
8GB card - bundle deal
Total = £242.99

The prices used for the Asda example are the price Asda is currently selling the console, game and card at, you may be able to get these cheaper elsewhere but it does seem they are the cheapest prices going.

peeps

The bundles didn't show up for me when I looked at play the first time which makes me wonder what the hell I typed into the search bar.

Jesus H Christ! people complained that the Vita was too expensive at £240 because you had to buy a memory card, but even after they see a deal like this that effectively wipes out the price of the 32GB memory card, they still complain it's expensive because you need a memory card!!!!!!

if Sony gave the Vita away people would still complain you need a memory card. it's just moaning for maonings sake

I wasn't moaning mate, maybe you should read again.

See peep's reply.

GribbleGrunger1686d ago

yeah, fair enough fella. perhaps i was being a bit harsh. i'm sorry

I got a nice deal at HMV in store. Vita (Wifi) + Uncharted + Starter Pack + Pre-order pack for £230

peeps1686d ago

"Online, Amazon and Play have frequently readjusted their bundle prices in an attempt to undercut each other"

Yeh tell me about it lol

Originally I had my pre order with Gamestation, then changed to Amazon and now changed to Play lol

I think if you're after Uncharted in your bundle play.com has the best deal. [£242.99 for Wifi, Uncharted and 8GB memory card]

HMV is offering Uncharted or Fifa free with the console for £229.99 in store, but remember that's without the memory card

LolololRumz1686d ago

Never saw the Play.com deal. That is amazing!

peeps1686d ago

I have a sinking feeling it's incorrect though...

Uncharted is the top tier pricing game, and yet Lumines, a lower tier game is being sold in a bundle for £265.99

But you don't get the free 8GB memory card like Amazon offers in their bundle, and that thing is worth £28. A memory card is mandatory, so Asda's price isn't really a better deal.

guys dont order from game.co.uk

they are charging £269.99 for wifi vita. fifa and 8gb card.

today they changed the pre orders so you dont get the pre order bonus

play.com are offering the same deal WITH the pre order bonus for £242.99
