I'm sure most of the people on this forum know this already, but the price difference is significant! Buying a new Metallic Red Vita from amazon.com would have cost me $270. Ordering from amazon.jp PLUS a 64GB memory card PLUS shipping cost me $251.

Anyway, so I'm finally part of the Vita family. Well, I will be in 3-5 business days anyway. I bought this specifically for Ys: Memories of Celceta, as I loved all the PSP ones and am loving Ys VIII. Looks like I'll have a lot of good RPGs to choose from.

In California I get packages from Amazon.jp in about 48 hours. Literally faster than ordering from New York.

i wish i could donate some of that to help, only a small percentage of games happen to be in physical form (mainly the ones not available on PSN) they don't have everything for ps3.

I have to grab a Vita some day, but I'll probably just get a used 2000 from a local thrift store.

how do you pay on Amazon.jp? I could use a new memory card, and don't care about the shipping charge.

Debit or credit card, also they only do fed ex shipping and the price is 8 dollars for such a small package

yeah, I'm an idiot. They even have an english option for the Japan store.

Also, is the conversion rate direct like it is when you google the exchange rate? Like, an 8060 yen 64GB vita card converts to $71 USD
