    ...And I ended up trying to go for a PS Vita 1000, and low and behold I couldn't get the vita, it was too far back and the machine didn't drop it.

    Settled for this Galaxy tab 2 7.0. Gonna take it to a walmart/bestbuy/target and see if I can get a recieptless return done on it.

    What's something I should grab for $200 or less?

    A system that actually has games: The 3DS.

    If you don't want that then maybe a cheap Vita.

    Already have a 3DS with plenty of games. Same for the Vita, 360, and PS3. Don't have any last-I mean next gen consoles yet.

    Upgrade your PC then, if you have one.

    Hmm... If you don't want anything in particular now then you should save that money.

    Of course it didn't. The Vita is not the brand new PS4 that's selling like hot cakes and will benefit further from every bit of good news related to it that's thrown our way. The Vita will be better represented at smaller game shows, such as Gamescon and Tokyo Game Show.

    To return something that high of a value without a receipt seems pretty daring. If you do manage to pull it off and receive a gift card then there is one way that might work to get it converted to cash.
    Apply for the Walmart credit card and ask for cash back at the register. When it comes time to pay the bill then use the gift card to pay for it.

    Edit: Nvm. I went today and asked about that and was told gift cards and credit cards (debit is fine) are not accepted forms of payment for paying off the credit card. Now I wonder whether a gift card can be used for utility payments but I would assume not for now.

    Selling it may not yield much money since its an older model but I would be fine if it sold for $140.

    Hmmm 200 smackers burning a hole in your pocket...

    Where it me, I would probably spend it on an external hard drive at Walmart. This would leave you with enough left over for a couple of MicroSD cards.

    Storage space is always needed, you can literally never have enough. (Although I am drowning in a sea of 8GB MicroSD cards these days.... I have been switching to 32GB ones.)

    Get all the microSD cards and make a storage cluster!

    They pay out after the machine has made a couple grand, the operator can actually set it. Before that it cheats.

    wasn't there a court case making those things illegal because it's gambling?
