    Ive been searching around of any kind of savings on the vita (the system, not games) and aside from the usual bundles everyone has i have yet to find anything. The only one ive seen so far has been the Target one (20$ giftcard with it) but it ends up being the same if i just order off amazon.

    Ive seen a BUTTLOAD of deals for the UK...and it sucks i cant find anything. If anyone finds any good deals let me know, any kind of savings of free stuff with it would be nice (my mother got me in a habit of deal hunting, hard for me to pay normal retail on big things anymore)

    Come back near Black Friday or Cyber Monday this coming November.

    Right now although there are some stellar US releases for games, still the best way to get your money worth on the Vita right now is still to import some games as well, so wait and you can find better domestic game releases.

    The pre-order deal for the 3G one isn't bad but the fine print kinda kills it.

    I believe it's $300 for a 3G Vita, memory card (like 8GB?), and a free game off the PSN (and since all Vita games are on the PSN you can just get a game like Uncharted which is normally $50 for free). Apparently though you need to start subscription to a 3G plan though before you can buy a game, otherwise I'd just buy the 3G system, use it as a WiFi one, and get a free game and memory card with it. The deal itself is still pretty good, even without the game, and is practically a must for 3G users.

    Otherwise there's a few basic pre-order deals but nothing spectacular honestly. As Hop said, you probably won't get anything good until Novemeber this year.

    Supposedly it's not any free PSN games, rather a PSN game valued up to 10 dollars. Basically a 10 dollar store credit.

    $246 (18% off) for the 3G/WiFi 8gb Bundle over here: shop.lockerS.com/electronics/playstation-vita/psv-game-system-3g.html (change the S in "lockerS" to a z)
    (You can also buy games & accessories at up to 30% discounts)

    You do need to earn the required "PTZ" to earn the 18% discount, but it's very easy. All you need to do it watch 4 300 PTZ Videos (Apx 4-5mins long each), and you can just have them playing in the background on mute if you wanted. Some people say this place is a scam, but they really have no proof to back it up and those I know who did order from lockers got their shipments fast and without problems. ALSO, no tax (in most states) and free shipping.
