Huh. Amazon is selling standalone Crystal White PlayStation Vitas for $199 right now.
These are the same Wi-Fi models that are available in a bundle with Assassin's Creed III: Liberation which, say what you will about the game, not everyone wants the pack-ins. Having gone for the limited-edition Star Wars PlayStation Portable because it was white only to play the included Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron exactly once, I know how this goes.
