Best Buy and Amazon are both currently offering $50 credit when you purchase a PlayStation Vita. The standard $249.99 Wi-Fi model is applicable, of course, as is the $299.99 PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection bundle. The latter option would be a good way to dive right into the system's existing library. Hmm.
There's a bit of a risk going for this deal without knowing what Sony may or may not announce at E3, but I suppose there's always a risk when it comes to buying these devices.
Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
