    What have you done to get your Vita?

    What have you done to get yourself a vita?
    Sold an old console, traded in games, sold a kidney?

    I sold my psp along with about 30 games(ps3 and psp games) and made $250 at gamestop. I was gonna buy it even if I made nothing on my trade ins but its nice to be able to save. Especially if it was that much.
    My cuz went to taco bell and won it first time buying a $5 box. Then once a friend heard about it he hasnt stopped going to taco bell, he said hes gotten over 15 boxes the past week. I find it funny, sad, but very determined to win one.

    So what have you done to get yours?

    I'm waiting til November or so to get mine but if I was buying one straight away I'd just take some money out of my bank, easy.

    You can only play once per day, so I hope he's saving those and not wasting them.

    I just went in and pre-ordered one at GameStop. I'm still playing at Taco Bell though so I can win a free one then turn around and sell it.

    I will never sell any console that I own to buy another console. I shall continue doing work and buy it with a new paycheck.

    Actually, just as long asyou have multiple emailsyou can play as much as the amount of emails you have.(like I have 3) And I am too still trying to win from taco bell, just so I may save more.

    Now I wish you hadn't told me because I may be tempted to eat there more than once per day now

    I pre-ordered it at Best Buy and worked some extra overtime the last couple months to save up for it. It will be a b-day present to myself

    I traded in 8 games (200.00 in trade in) and sold my launch model xbox 360 and 3 crappy games and the 360 hd dvd drive for 100.00 to get the first edition bundle. I am sad about the games I traded in

    assisans credd revelations
    wwe 12
    ratchet and clank all 4 one
    need for speed the run
    uncharted 3
    motorstorm apoc
    saints row the third
    sonic generations

    This system better be worth it for all I have traded in. Most of the games I bought on boxing day I used in the trade in. But now I just get to sit back a relax while it gets released. The US is so lucky because in Canada we don't have a 5.00 box ours is 7.00 and it doesn't have the Vita contest going on. I would love to have that contest go on here I would eat Taco Hell every day for a Vita

    Now i would say: I went to Afghanistan for 4 months and get alot of money on top of my monthly paycheck..... Which is exactly what i'm doing now... So i can't buy the Vita until May or so.... But if i wasn't deployed i would buy it straight away without saving up or selling anything..... Now it will come from the extra money. And it will be a nice present for the month that i'm at home after my mission

    Are you going to re-purchase any of those games that you sold?

    Sold my Wii for $58 and the 6 games (Wii Sports, Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Mario Kart, New Mario and House of the Dead 2/3 combo) for $64 to Best Buy, and I have $55 in Reward Zone points. So thats a nice chunk off of it. I hadnt used the Wii since Mario Galaxy 2 came out, so it doesnt bother me...
