    So, here's the deal. I'm getting a Vita when the new model comes out. But at the moment, they're having a Golden Week sale. If you didn't know, Golden Week is basically a week of national holidays for Japan, so they have a bunch of games on sale, some of which I really want, particularly P4G. I'll go ahead and give the list for the reason why:
    Title PS Plus Sale Price Sale Price Original Price
    Armored Core: Verdict Day (PS3) $5.00 $9.99 $19.99
    Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk (PS3) $24.49 $34.99 $49.99
    Atelier Meruru Plus: The Apprentice of Arland (PS Vita) $19.59 $27.99 $39.99
    Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurer of Arland (PS Vita) $19.59 $27.99 $39.99
    Chrono Cross (PS3/PSP/PS Vita) $3.49 $4.99 $9.99
    Chrono Trigger (PS3/PSP/PS Vita) $3.49 $4.99 $9.99
    Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PS Vita) $32.39 $35.99 $39.99
    Devil May Cry HD Collection (PS3) $8.99 $14.99 $29.99
    Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (PS3) $15.00 $29.99 $59.99
    Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (PS Vita) $10.00 $19.99 $39.99
    Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (PS3) $5.00 $9.99 $19.99
    Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory (PS3) $14.69 $20.99 $29.99
    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3) $14.99 $24.99 $49.99
    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS3) $11.99 $19.99 $39.99
    Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection (PS Vita) $8.99 $14.99 $29.99
    Muramasa Rebirth (PS Vita) $7.49 $12.49 $24.99
    Persona 4 Golden (PS Vita) $14.62 $19.49 $29.99
    rain (PS3) $3.75 $7.49 $14.99
    Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers (PS3) $15.00 $29.99 $59.99
    SoulCalibur V (PS3) $5.00 $9.99 $19.99
    Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (PS3) $10.00 $19.99 $39.99
    Time and Eternity (PS3) $9.79 $13.99 $19.99
    Ys: Memories of Celceta (PS Vita) $19.59 $27.99 $39.99
    Zone of the Enders HD Collection (PS3) $10.49 $17.49 $34.99


    $15 off? Yes please. Anywhoo, I was wondering if it was possible for someone to buy it for another person. That way I could have it at the discounted price as soon as I get my console. Actually, another question, would it be possible to buy it through a computer instead of using a PSVita to buy it? That way I could skip the middleman altogether.

    Maybe you could ask somebody to make an account with your info, buy the games there and then give you the account details. I don't see any other practical way on the vita.

    Yup, buying games on PC is possible through the SEN page and you can make a PSN account without the console on the same site too.

    Awesome, thanks for the info. Now I just need to google those games' size so I can to decide whether it's worth it or not... damn proprietary memory cards...

    Well, it looks like the new model comes with 8GB. That'll hold Danganronpa and P4G, so I'm set, yay.

    You're not forced to download the games so you can play one,beat it and download the other one later.

    Yeah, that's what I plan on doing. I'm mostly a PC gamer, so I'm used to being able to hold 100 games on my computer, 99 of which I haven't even started yet.

    Well a 8 GB card would be fine but if you wanna have all of the games then ur gonna need a 16 or 32 GB.
