Just bought a Vita! :).

Postby FFTHEWINNER » Sat Apr 21, 2018 11:48 pm

so i randomly noticed a topic on another board from a week ago about Amazon selling the last of their Vita stock for about 100 bucks. took a look and there was an amazon warehouse sale 20% off on the vitas they have and only one vita(the 2000 Wifi model,CIB,in good condition according to them,but presumably without any extras/memory cards)was left.i have been wanting a good deal on a vita for awhile(especially after the announcement that a jailbreak is coming to newer firmwares at the end of the year). when i saw this i was split whether to purchase it or wait until i go to the US in September and search for a better deal on craigslist then,but i ultimately decided to purchase it. price with taxes and discount was 112.93$. unfortunately like i said i wont be in the US until September,so i will most likely have my cousin check it for me to make sure it works well (i sent it to my aunt's house).

what do you think of the deal though guys? i am still a bit worried that i should have tried craigslist when i go in September instead,and i still have a few hours i can cancel in before they ship it if i want,so what would you advice me?is it a pretty good deal for the system(like i said,CIB,in good condition according to them,but presumably without any extras/memory cards)? and what firmware do you think it will come with?(i am curious on that because according to the Jailbreak announcement the 3.67 and higher jailbreak will need to be applied every time the device is turned on,while 3.65 and less the JB is permanent,so it will only need to be applied once)

Not bad. The stores around me are selling them used for $160. I've always wanted one for PS4 remote play.

I have never played anything with Vita, it may be promising. There are some good games.

I've never played on a Vita, but they look fun. The only handheld Playstation device I own is an older PSP that I use as a retro gaming console.

I bought a Vita cheap about six weeks ago. The USB cable was broken but I managed to splice a new connection onto it so at least it'll charge.

It's got 3.67 on it so eagerly awaiting news of this jailbreak. There's so much conflicting info about how to get CFW on later firmwares at the moment.

I've got the PSTV and enjoyed Dragon's Crown. It would be nice to get a Vita since not all games are compatable.

I bought a Vita 2000 with a broken screen last year for $57, plus $30 for a 16GB memory card. I've barely played it at all, yet every week I look to Sony's website for extreme deals on it and have since purchased more than 20 titles for it.

If I ever get out of 70+ hour work week/20+ hour week caregiving/20+ hour week music commission hell, I look forward to indulging myself thoroughly on it. Even WITH the broken screen, this little guy kicks ass.
