Why is TC surprised?
This is Sony.
You know, the same Sony that bragged about selling a game console for $600?

Hilarious!

The new Vita bundle is retailing for $299.99, it comes with:
3G/Wifi Vita (MSRP 299.99)
4GB memory card (MSRP 19.99)
Unit 13 voucher (26.99 on the PS store)
PS+ 1 year voucher (50.00 MSRP)
-----------------------------------
Total MSRP: $396.97

So that's a "savings" of $96.98, and yet Sony somehow feels that it's OK to advertise it as over $99 in savings.


You don't have to pay tax on the memory card, unit 13 or psn+ with the bundle though. So maybe they were counting tax.

Some customers were not going to pay tax on the bundle anyway, due to the area they live in.

What? Lying is the basis of most modern day marketing campaigns.


No, lying can get companies sued for gross misrepresentation of their products. Advertising is about making people think they're talking about something that they're not, about saying something they're not saying. If a company makes a direct claim that is patently provably false, they can and do get in trouble for it. That's why you don't find advertisements in the media that are straight facts that are wrong, but are merely misleading.


You use that word....but it doesn't mean what you seem to think it means.

I believe there is tax on the bundle itself, so is $299.99 plus tax.

From what I post before, PS+ is worth more then the retail pricing, if you add that to the bundle, thats more then $99 of saving.

Man you are infatuated with that poster. He's not even in this topic when you posted that. You should really just ask him out with how much you continually bring him up for no reason.

It's merely $3 yet the Ponies are so hurt they have to spin this with sad lies and nonsense?

TC I have some loose threads on my sweater you can pick next. It's obvious they are using the retail price for the savings...keep grasping at those straws though

Gotta love TC's lack of knowledge regarding simple marketing strategies...


Since when is flat out lying a market strategy?


Companies do round to make a marketing strategy seem more appealing and is very much legal to do so within a certain percentage. And tbh they were most likely going off the physical price and I don't see why people would be complaining over saving money.
