Shipping from JapanFound 2nd JunEdited by:"Stefarno88"
The price includes both import VAT and delivery (and shipping from Amazon Japan is super speedy too).

If you want a brand new Vita console I wouldn't expect it to get much cheaper than this - the last consoles were shipped to the UK back in 2015 and Japanese production is slowly winding down.

Pre-owned 'fair condition' slims are £95 at Game or £90 (discounted) to £115 (boxed) at Cex, so personally I'd recommend the £30-50 extra for a scratch-free console with a fresh battery (and being safe in the knowledge that it won't have been used on the toilet by a previous owner).

And yes, Vita memory cards have always been a pain. There is 1Gb memory built-in to the slim but CeX have a 4Gb card for £8 and a 8Gb one for £12 (the launch price of the 8Gb card was £31.99!) If you want a larger 32Gb card you can get a bundle pack with one (but without the extra goodies) for an extra £30 or so - more info here

The system is region-free with English language available - being a Japanese console the system menus will swap X and O but this will go back to default in most (if not all?) games. Also, the slim charges by micro USB unlike the proprietary slot of the standard model so no worries there.

I've checked unboxing videos and Minecraft is actually a physical copy rather than a download code (and I believe the game detects the system language) - the listing states the download code has expired but I believe this is for the free PS3 version (which you couldn't use anyway without a Japanese PSN account).

Launch price for the OLED model was £229 in 2012. Launch price for the LCD model was £180 in Feb 2014.

How is this a deal? Why are people voting hot? It's a 6-7 year old platform and effectively discontinued, if they were offloading them for £50 it would be a hot deal but £150 for this in 2018 is madness ...
@cannibalwombat@Stefarno88@mixmixi@toca73

I’m so glad you guys mentioned having a second Vita as a backup. I have a mountain of games still to play, both digital and physical. I’m currently obsessed with Stardew on the Vita, having recently finished Steamworld Dig. Meanwhile the Switch and PS4 sit neglected. I even have an Xbox One I haven’t unboxed

As such, I’ve been thinking of getting the Silver Vita (+32GB card) as a backup, but my mate suggested it was madness. Much happier to go with the opinion of four relative strangers

Amazon Japan, here I come...

Who's lolcano?! heat for the post, still got and sometimes playing my vita.
firmware 3.65 if anyone is looking specifically.
Hate Minecraft but this looks lovely...

Is this definitely 3.65?
Heat for effort... especially with a hangover
Seems like a great deal for an amazing and under-loved console. I still cherish my original OLED Vita and hope it never dies, though I'm tempted to get one of these as a backup/possibly preferable model (never tried the slim)/souvenir to keep pristine.

Excellent list of games too. The only ones I would add (some of which are admittedly available on PS4) would be Unit 13, Sine Mora, Super Stardust Delta, Flame Over, Resogun and Virtua Tennis 4. Not forgetting the PS1 classics too! I would also argue that basically all the indie games you listed play best on the Vita.

I've been playing Undertale, Papers Please and Stardew Valley, all recent releases (not dead yet!) and play very well. For games that require twitch reflexes like OlliOlli, Hotline Miami and TxK, you really can't beat a handheld like this.

'lolcano' is going to be my word of the week.


Also heated for the effort into fighting the Vita's corner, not sure how amazing the deal itself is considering the Vita's age. Having said that, still tempted for the JRPGs and FF Dissidia...
Do people not say lolcano anymore? Maybe I'm getting old...

Yeah, I'm getting one as a backup - I have no many games that I'd be kicking myself if my console died and I couldn't get hold of a new one anywhere.

Honestly I could have easily listed another 50 games but I had to at least limit the list somehow!

Is this definitely 3.65?


obviously cant say 100% but im 99% all these minecraft packs shipped with 3.65.....if it was 3.60 i would be all over it
I bought my vita last year and it's been great. I enjoy jrpgs so this has been great. Introduced me to the persona series is enough to love it.
So tempted.
Great find and post mate, thanks a lot for your effort! I wish this was just plain white though, not much into Minecraft myself.

I still cherish my original OLED Vita and hope it never dies, though I'm tempted to get one of these as a backup/possibly preferable model (never tried the slim)/souvenir to keep pristine.Excellent list of games too. The only ones I would add (some of which are admittedly available on PS4) would be Unit 13, Sine Mora, Super Stardust Delta, Flame Over, Resogun and Virtua Tennis 4. Not forgetting the PS1 classics too! I would also argue that basically all the indie games you listed play best on the Vita. I've been playing Undertale, Papers Please and Stardew Valley, all recent releases (not dead yet!) and play very well. For games that require twitch reflexes like OlliOlli, Hotline Miami and TxK, you really can't beat a handheld like this.


The slim is very good, screen is still quite good, though not as good as the oled version. Battery life is better and it is lighter. Also the micro usb charging port is a lot more convenient. Well worth a try.

I have the original Vita on 3.65, I thought you said 3.60 my bad. Anyway like I've said on previous posts theflow will be releasing a hack this year for firmware up to 3.68!
What's all this 3.65/3.60 stuff. I'll assume it's firmware, but why exactly does it matter?
But the Vita has no games, lolcano.
I’ve got two vitas (managed to get a new one off Amazon last year). Old OLED one none hacked which I play uncharted, virtua tennis and a few other games on. New style one hacked that I use with retro arch as vita great from emulation Either way still a great machine. Sad it never got the support the hardware deserved

yes but will be 4-5 months away
Launch price for the OLED model was £229 in 2012. Launch price for the LCD model was £180 in Feb 2014.

How is this a deal? Why are people voting hot? It's a 6-7 year old platform and effectively discontinued, if they were offloading them for £50 it would be a hot deal but £150 for this in 2018 is madness ...
Also there's the full ports of the console Lego games to add to the list. Batman3, Jurassic World, Avengers, and Ninjago:ShadowOfRonin i believe. None of this halfbaked DS nonsense!
Love my Vita for indie and jrpg games but correct me if I'm wrong aren't consoles locked to the region so this will only work on the Japanese ps store.

I mean, ignoring that this isn't 2012 or 2014 anymore - and that you literally can't walk into a shop and buy one - the price seems reasonable to me? The 2DS XL is older and much less powerful and still goes for £120-130.

Even if you have no PS+ games, no cross-buy titles, no supported PSP or PS1 games AND you don't want to wait for a PSN sale, you can get a new console with Minecraft and pick up an 8Gb memory card, Persona 4 Golden, Wipeout 2048, Gravity Rush, Undertale, Steins;Gate, Danganronpa, Killzone Mercenary and XCOM: Enemy Unknown all for £250. Is that really bad value?

You can use one account at a time but you can set up any region on the console.

Persona 5 isn't on the vita.... I wish it was. I love the idea of p5 being portable.
So glad this is plastered in Minecraft, any other game and I’d be £150 down! Excellent price though, heat added!

My thoughts exactly. Hot deal, but I'd have bought a 2nd Vita if it wasn't covered in Minecraft.

You can not jailbreak (yet) vita above 3.60 firmware version. There is no way to downgrade versions so if it is once been upgraded to higher version you can not go back to older firmware unless you replace the motherboard in the vita. That is why people try to find ps vita with ver. 3.60 or below.

You clearly don't know what you're talking about. If you don't know why this is a great deal then you shouldn't even be here.

I've got a Japanese neon orange Vita and the PS Store sticks with the country associated with your PS Account. Everything with a Japanese Vita works as a UK one would. Only difference is X & O are swapped in the main Vita menus.

If you really dislike the Minecraft stuff you could get the silver one with a 32Gb memory card - it is a little bit more expensive but you'd be able to make most of that back by selling/trading the memory card if you didn't need it.
Love my Vita. Best portable I've ever owned, including Switch (so far - I reckon Switch will be better by the end of its life).

4 is amazing still. From what I see, persona 5 rhythm dancing game is coming to the vita, but I don't think 5 itself is. I would love to be proven wrong though, I really enjoyed p5 on the PS3, on the vita it would be class. I'm still hoping for a persona 3 'golden'....
