Amazon might not be the best place to buy a discounted Nvidia Shield, but today the online retailer is offering the best deal on a PlayStation Vita yet. With the "Amazon Exclusive Holiday Walking Dead Vita Bundle," you can get the original 3G / Wi-Fi model of the 5-inch gaming handheld with a 4GB memory card and voucher codes to download four great games for just $174.99, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Retro City Rampage, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season.
You'll need a bigger memory card, though
To put that deal in perspective, the PlayStation Vita normally retails for $199.99 all by itself. Although you can find it today at several retailers today for $179.99 as part of their Black Friday sales, Amazon is head and shoulders above the crowd, offering a complete package deal for $5 less than you'd pay for the bare system somewhere else. The only caveat is that you'll probably need to pick up a larger Vita memory card, as Uncharted alone will take up 2.8GB of the 4GB stick that comes with the bundle.
Today also seems to be a good day to pick up a few choice Vita games as well, with several stores offering discounts on titles. Target is offering Gravity Rush for $19.99, and GameStop has the excellent Persona 4 Golden for $19.99.
