Vita Means Life
I owned a PS Vita when it first came out in 2012, I loved it. Also lost it, to heroin addiction, twice (and 3 Original DS'). I got clean just before Halloween 2019 and went back to school for phlebotomy and this was my present to myself. I ordered it from Lukie, a good-ass price and I added a handful of games. It came a few days later, I smoke a lot of pot so my time dilation can be distorted, let's say a week, it came within a week. And in a nice concise white package with bubble padding that also fit in my obtuse mailbox. I live south of downtown Seattle so needless-to-say there are opportunists that may walk by at any given moment, so I appreciated the no over-packaging. This was right before COVID too, so I played it a lot, everyday for 1+ hours, and I do mean "+"! It's 3 years later and it's still chugging!
The back touch pad did have a lot of superficial scratches that you could see in the reflected light but it didn't affect anything. It came with a 4GB memory card; after I bought one just-in-case, it also still had the SIM card this being a 3G Model. The absolute only flaw was the power cord they sent with it. About a 6 months later my Vita wouldn't charge and the cord had no obvious defects. But brand new ones are cheap AF, six-footers for 7 bucks or something, I bought one on Amazon and used it with the 5V black brick converter-thingy so it was the cord.
I love this company, it's Hella easy to order games and most of their prices are reasonable. I wish I realized that you could order the cases ("complete") sooner than I did the default being "card only." But it's badass that I can hop online after coming home defeated searching stores for used PS Vita games and know there's a big-ass selection a few clicks and a few days away. This Vita has become my companion thru the monkey-climbing battle of addiction and I got it here! PS Vita means life :-)
