The difference with the pro duo is there wasn't a monopoly, sandisk and lexar also made them. Later on, there were adapters that you could use micro sd in. Considering the security implemented on these memory sticks now, they will never reach the 3rd party market. Could just wait for a vita revise with built in memory if sony ever stop being complete morons.
Tried this in northern Louisiana. The store didn't have any Vita units in stock, but the helpful employee tried running all the combinations of the four games they have through the system along with an order for a shipped vita and all of them came up at $199, though I can confirm that I would not have had to purchase a data plan or sign a contract. This may only apply if there are units physically in stock in the stores. The guy said this promotion runs through December 31st, though, if that's helpful.
The four games that the guy said I could choose from were:
Uncharted: Golden Abyss
MLB 12: The Show
Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
Took me about an hour to find a local store that had them in stock, still about 45 minutes away. But there is no contract if you buy it in store, PS Vita w 3G wifi 8 gb memory card and 2 games for $200. I never plan on using the 3G but i am now taking back the lame black ops bundle to get this.
It's only a better deal if you didn't want 3months PS+, Asassin's Creed, and Playstation All Stars (They could charge you for the download code if you redeemed it), and instead wanted to buy two copies of NFL to make it cheaper.
Bootes, I think you are right. When I got mine yesterday the AT&T store said that they got a large delivery of them over the last few days to sell for this promotion. I think most stores probably were shipped some and the inventory checker is out of date.
