    Maybe it's just not a big seller at those locations..? I've never seen anyone in my area with a Vita. They sell about as horribly as the Wii U at my store, and I work at Walmart.

    Demand influences price. This is only natural.

    Sony and Nintendo should tie up and sell Wii-U and Vita in a bundle.

    "We, you and life!" tagline should work.

    Maybe they're making them such a steal so people don't actually steal them. Better to make $100 dollars instead of throwing people in jail, I always say.

    It's a joke; people were steal Vita's from Best Buy because they were so expensive. A bad joke at that, too.

    Went to a Bestbuy a few hours ago, Vita's were still the same price as usual. Must be only in certain areas.

    That's an instore manager clearance price. That manager is likely trying to push out the original non-bundled units, because he has a bunch of walking dead and/or black ops bundles.

    I wish i would have known about that. I could have gouged someone for $50 when I resold it to get enough money for the one I wanted.
