If only I would have been at Best Buy 3 minutes earlier.

So I just went to Best Buy to trade in a game so I walked back to the trade in center and saw a kid being handed a gift card. "Cool" I thought; now I won't have to wait in line. Then I noticed it...He had just traded in a VIta.

I had to ask him how much he got for trading it in....95 bucks. He traded in a Vita...for 95 bucks. If I would have been there just a few minutes sooner I would have handed him 120 and walked out the door. Now I sit here, sulking on Gamefaqs when I could have been here gloating my awesome buy.

He said he "really needed a laptop." My thought was you could easily find a laptop cheaper on newegg or amazon, especially when you factor in the whole no tax thing.

AND it was the 3G version, totally forgot to mention that. the Wi-fi only version goes for 71

This "kid" was probably 16 or 17. Possibly needed a laptop for freshman year of college...who knows. But STILL! I wanted that Vita.... Man I could have been playing Persona 4 Golden this November.

He's not very smart--definitely not college material.

This.

BB offered my $5 for a sealed copy of GOW3 a few weeks after launch. Walked out the door laughing. Ended up selling it to a friend for $30. Probably could have gotten more, but I don't even own an xbox so I didn't care.

$5 though was a joke.
