PS Vita £219.99 with £40 Voucher to spend on Playstation Network @ Sony Centre

mastahpeomastahpeo

Leaflets outside my local Sony Centre ( York ) show that they are doing the PS Vita with a £40 PSN voucher. The store also say they price match ( not online ) but Comet/Currys/Argos etc on deals, so they could end up matching a bundle price & you also get the £40 PSN voucher.

Gives those who don't want the bundled games that most other places are offering something different I guess. Can use the voucher to download more games on PS3 or Vita that you actually want.

    So they match the HMV bundle deals and also give you a £40 voucher and yet people are still voting it cold?

    I highly doubt it. Their offer is PS Vita + £40 voucher. If they price match HMV then you will just get whatever HMV are offering without the £40 voucher.

    It does sound to good to be true but that's what the OP has posted, perhaps it should be confirmed either way?

    Just spoke to the store now, they say that the £40 voucher is bundled in with the pack and if they price match you don't lose the voucher. There is no pre-order pack with there offer. I have to ring back tomorrow while they get the definite answer.

    Will reply tomorrow when I know more.

    This is a GREAT offer to be honest. It would be perfect if you're one of the early pre-orderers of the 16GB Card when it dropped down to £35.
    Just get it on day one and buy loads of games.

    id suggest its anything on the ps store. uncharted may be on it, but i think its just a generic £40 code, which means you could use it on ps3 items too.

    weird though as i thought they only made £25 codes nowadays.

    anyway its a decent deal, but play have some for £232 for console and preorder pack plus 8gb card and a game. makes the console around £180.

    I'm not quite sure how it's scorching as other places online (no price match) have the Vita for £215 with a memory card. The £40 voucher isn't really £40 because PSN have rip-off prices on games and they're download only so you can never sell them.

    you got it spot on really, I can not think for one moment the benefit of downloading AAA releases, unless you are the sort of person who never trades/sells games you are cutting off your nose, as selling/trading back games is a good way of getting new games

    am i right in saying that games can be more expensive on PSN than retail shop price ?

    Sometimes more than double the price. Publishers put them on the store at the recommended retail price or higher without regard to 'real' prices so at one point, Rayman Origins was £49.99 on PSN and £17.99 on Amazon

    They've had a rethink on this strategy though and vita games have been confirmed to cost less as a digital download than the physical (albeit resellable) copy. I intend to get UMVC3 and know I won't sell it so in this case the voucher would be great. Clever ploy though, sucker people in with a huge voucher and thus increase the pressure on you to buy a memory card. They need to make their money somewhere though I guess. I'm sticking with the Morrisons deal for now as it suits me best (getting hold of a discount and flogging the voucher) but I'd love to see some confirmed price match deals by the Sony Centre so will wait and see.

    The deals a getting better and better. Almost regret preordering mine so early. Am sure sony centre will have similar deal in London.

    So as long as it's unregistered you could potentially get 10 decent free games? Whats the cost of games like normally?
    Cheers for the link BTW

    You've hit the snag with the PSP Go with that single statement.

    Most of the digital delivery games via the PlayStation Store are more expensive than their Universal Media Disc counterparts. This is by design so that high street stores & online retailers still have an incentive to sell the console hardware. If the PlayStation Store prices were undercutting the typical retailers' list prices then they would have no motivation to sell the hardware any longer.

    It is the ongoing need for software where the highest profit margins are made in the video game retail industry.

    I did say, "most", however, Some titles on the PlayStation Store are cheaper than the comparable physical assets. Like the regular discounts I post as deals every fortnight, the digital delivery titles are often reduced (for a limited period).

    Also, the "minis" range of titles (now mostly playable on the PS3, but designed for the PSP/PSP Go) are available. These are Sony's equivalent of Apple's "App Store" titles; at a relatively cheap price & with a relatively "casual" gaming audience.

    Personally I favour physical assets (as I have mentioned before), but a PSP Go does have some positives; the fact it supports Bluetooth connectivity means you play titles via the PS3 "Remote Play" facility using a SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 controller, for instance.

    [EDIT]: Are you aware of the "Remote Play" feature?

    This is a rubbish deal. Why would I want my games to be download only, unless they're not available as physical copies? As somebody says above, there is no resale value.
