The PS Vita is now up for pre-order at many online retailers. It’s a good time to look at all the PS Vita pre-order deals currently available. You’ll want to have a deal where you can get the PS Vita at the lowest price possible, so if Sony decides to lower their PS Vita price at the last day before the release on February 22, 2012 you’ll want it at that price even though you pre-ordered months prior to the release date.
This is exactly what Amazon offers with their Pre-order price guarantee. Furthermore you’re guaranteed to have your brand new PS Vita on the day of release, but shipping is currently limited to U.S. only. (for Amazon.com that is). Let’s take a look at Amazon’s PS Vita deals.
PlayStation Vita WiFi
This is the standard PS Vita deal, the WiFi model offers everything we’ve discussed before and connects internet and PlayStation network connectivity through an improved WiFi connection. The costs at this point are $249,99
PlayStation Vita 3G and WiFi
The advanced version of the PS Vita contains a WiFi and a 3G connection to connect to the PlayStation Network and the internet. You can use the always-on 3G through an additional data-plan with AT&T wireless. This will allow you to also be online on-the-go and gain trophies and chat with your friends and foes wherever you are. The PS Vita 3G/WiFi is currently set to retail for $299,99
PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle
The PS Vita First Edition Bundle is set to release on February 15, 2012, which is 1 week before the official PS Vita release date. This seems to be the best PS Vita deal if you really want to be the first to own a PS Vita in the U.S.. Included in the PS Vita First Edition Bundle is the game Little Deviants, which features several crazy minigames that fully make use of the Vita’s potential, including the front and rear camera and the microphone. This set will retail for $349,99.
Don’t miss out on the PS Vita pre-order deals, you might not be on time for the first shipment of PS Vita consoles and you definitely will not want to stand in a long line to order the PS Vita in retail. Decide first which PS Vita deal suits you best. If you really want to be the first to own a PS Vita you should go for the first edition bundle, if you’re on the road a lot and want to play your games online wherever you are the 3G edition suits you best. If you don’t mind waiting until the official release date and play within reach of a WiFi connection a lot, the standard PS Vita WiFi edition is good enough for you.
