A few days ago I talked to my brother and he asked me what I wanted him to get me for Christmas. I told me that I wanted a memory card for my Playstation Vita that was either 16 GB or 32 GB. He said he would get me the 16 GB one.
Currently the 16 GB memory card that I have right now is pretty much filled up. Earlier this month EA gave away some games during one weekend, including Need For Speed: Most Wanted for the PS Vita. I got it (it’s on my download list) but I didn’t have enough space on my current 16 GB memory card to download it.
Well, with this new 16 GB memory card that my brother is getting for me, I can now download Need For Speed: Most Wanted. I can also buy and download some other games, including some PS1 RPGs like Breath of Fire IV, Xenogears, and the newly released Suikoden II.
However, once this new 16 GB memory card fills up, I’m not planning on buying any more downloadable games. I don’t see myself buying another memory card for my PS Vita, unless Sony significantly drops the price of the memory cards.
Anyway, last time I talked about shopping at a Best Buy. Well, this time I headed to yet another Best Buy store. Unlike last time, there was nothing too memorable that happened here, but they had a lot of Xbox One System bundles, stacked on top of each other. They mostly had the Assassin’s Creed Unity/Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag bundles, but they also had a few Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare bundles.
The bundles were $350 each, and at that price, it was quite tempting to get one of these bundles. But ultimately I decided to hold off on buying one of these systems. I’ll just enjoy playing my Playstation Vita (and my other videogame systems) for now…
Speaking of the PS Vita, I was able to find a couple of games for it that I wanted. And I got most of them for cheap prices as well. I ended up buying six Vita games.
Out of these six games, Soul Sacrifice is the only one that I paid the full retail price for, which is $30. Soul Sacrifice is another game that I didn’t think I would get this soon, but again, since I was always going to get this game anyway, I decided to get it now. And since I think this game is pretty niche, there’s a good chance that this game will not see a significant price drop before becoming very hard to find.
For $15, I picked up Rayman Legends. This game is also available for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii-U, and I always thought that I would buy this game for my PS3 or Xbox 360 (I don’t have a Wii-U), but one of my friends has been raving this Playstation Vita version, saying that it is just as good as the home console versions. So for $15, I couldn’t resist getting this game for my Vita.
Also for $15 I picked up Tearaway. To be honest, this game is not a game that I thought I would be getting, at least not for its full retail price of $30. I know that this game got universally praised by the critics but from reading reviews of the game it did not sound like this game would be my cup of tea. The game was developed by Media Molecule, who also developed Little Big Planet 1 and 2 for the PS3. While I enjoyed playing both LBP games, I didn’t like them that much. But since Tearaway was only $15, I decided to take a chance on it.
For $9.99, I got Unit 13, which is the last game Zipper Interactive (the makers of the SOCOM games) developed before they got closed down. I have seen some gameplay footage of this game, and it looked like a game that I would really enjoy playing. So when I saw Unit 13 for only $10 I knew I had to get it.
Also for $9.99, I picked up Modnation Racers: Road Trip. I actually didn’t know that there was a Modnation Racers game for the PS Vita. But for only $10, I’ll try it out and hopefully it ends up being fun to play.
Finally, I got Wipeout 2048, which was $9.99 as well. Again, I didn’t know that there was a Wipeout game for the PS Vita. I haven’t played a Wipeout game since playing Wipeout 3 for the original Playstation a long time ago. For the most part, the Wipeout games have been known to be high quality games, so hopefully Wipeout 2048 is no different.
Man, to be honest, I didn’t think that I would be able to get a lot of Vita games for $10 or $15 a piece. Maybe that speaks to the sad state that the Vita is currently in. Oh well, I am glad that I was able to get this games for these cheap prices.
