    I've changed my pre-order so many times now I have lost count.

    Seems amazon are going to match or beat anyone elses offer so I think I will just re-order with them, saves me having to keep looking

    Hey 'avolee'...you need to add the 'Gamestop' offers too:

    PS Vita 3G + Uncharted + 16GB Memory Card £319.99 (£303.99 via Quidco)
    console works out at £223.99 via Quidco

    PS Vita WiFi + Uncharted + 16GB Memory £269.99 (£256.50 via Quidco)
    console works out at £176.50 via Quidco

    GameStop - Results

    Personally, I think this is easily the best deal going. I also added 'express delivery' and it added nothing to the price.

    Mine hasn't officially tracked with Quidco yet so will keep you updated. Even without Quidco, it's still a very good offer.

    Yea its annoying isnt it :( If I had the cash in hand I'd not be going with Game - the fact they are giving such crazy trade ins for the Vita means I'm sticking with it.

    Same as me. I've £75 credit on a card.

    Then £70 on a hmv card so I'm pretty much forced to pay full whack for the individual console, individual 16gb card, and Uncharted at £44.99!

    Damn you store credit!!!

    Amazon will automatically update your order as they have a 'Pre-Order Price Guarantee' on the Vita.

    See here for the details:

    Likewise but at Gamestation. I've got enough credit to pay for the console, a game and a 4gb memory card but it would be nice if the bundle was cheaper so I could get a bigger card.

    Wait to see what bundles are going to be available next week. Like has been said what you get for the trade price makes up for the cheaper deals. For what i`m getting if i sold my xbox privately i`d have to put the same amount of money towards it with the cheaper deals as i would with the game prices so it`s costing me the same in the end.

    Well, if Quidco doesn't track, then the Wi-Fi console works out at £190 if you assume the 16GB card and UC cost £40 each. I think that's pretty good? You're getting a memory card that's double what anyone else is getting and possibly the best launch game regarding trade-in value.

    I've been in touch with Gamestop and they are looking into it. I've also noticed that on the Quidco site you have to wait three days before filing an untracked item. However, it does show your activity for the merchant in question...so proof that you linked through Quidco:smashin:

    Tesco has dropped their 16gb memory card down to the reasonable £39.99 rather than £44.99

    Also added a bundle which is disappointing. WIFI Model, selected game (no uncharted and FIFA being the best) and a 4GB Memory card for £249.99.

    Game have now changed their bundled deals so that you get 8GB memory card rather than GB.

    Why do you have to pay full whack?

    You do realise HMV have one of the best bundles going now. I have ordered PS Vita wi-fi + Uncharted + 16gb card for £269. This also includes the pre-order pack and £5 store credit on my HMV card :thumbsup:

    EDIT: Sorry, just re-read your post and realise you have credit on both Game AND HMV card.

    Someone help me make a decision lol.

    Can the original Game pre order for £25 be cancelled and put on a game card? I heard they're non refundable :(

    Reason I ask is if I cancel my bundle and put it all on a Game card then I'll have about £65 in Game credit.

    I also have £70 on a HMV card. . .if I go for their Uncharted+ Wifi + 16gb card then I can get everything for £195 and still have my full £65 game credit to spend on other stuff.


    If I stay as it is and use my £25 pre order + £40 game card to buy the Vita then ill be paying £165 for the console and then I go to HMV and use my £70 voucher to get 16gb card and Uncharted for an extra £10.

    I don't know what to do :(

    Is the HMV bundle in store?

    You can just use the pre order deposit against something else. I would wait and see especially now game changed the card size in there online bundles to 8gb. I was gonna get a 16gb card but may get another game now if the stores match those bundles.

    From reading about others cancelling their Game Pre-orders, it seems that they refund via store credit only.

    The HMV deal is in-store nation wide.

    I don't think 8 will be enough for me :( I wish they'd drop the console souls from £230 though , that's the dearest i've seen anywhere :O

    Thanks for this. . .do you need to give back the pre order pack?

    I've worked out the maths. . if I cancel my Game pre order then for an extra £15 I will end up with a £65 Game card spare.

    I think it's because of the daft trade in prices they are giving
