Aussie bargains February 17

We look at ways you can save money on PS Vita launch titles.

The PlayStation Vita is just under a week from launch in Australia, and thankfully Mr Chickan_117 has spotted discounted prices online for the main launch titles. The thing to keep in mind about importing PS Vita games is that you can't mix and match titles from different regions. Due to the fact that games from each area are locked to their respective territory's PlayStation Network Store, and that the PS Vita supports only one account at a time, it's incredibly difficult getting postrelease DLC for those games. The best way to approach the PlayStation Vita is to pick one region to get your games from, and then stick to it.

While PlayStation Vita titles dominate this week's bargain roundup, we've also sneaked in a few other offers that we thought were worth sharing around.

PS Vita launch titles:
Uncharted: Golden Abyss - A$48 from Harvey Norman Direct Import
Rayman: Origins - A$41
WipeOut 2038 - A$39 from Harvey Norman Direct Import
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - A$43 from Harvey Norman Direct Import

Regular bargains:
Red Dead: Redemption GOTY (360) - A$31.99 from Oz Game Shop
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars - A$12.15 from Play Asia
Resident Evil: Revelations - A$44.99 from oz Game Shop
Final Fantasy XIII-2 - A$69 from JB Hi-Fi
SoulCalibur V - A$69 from JB Hi-Fi

Remember, bargain hunting is a communal activity, and there's a thread over on the GameSpot AU forums dedicated to finding cheap games. If you spot a good deal online or at a store, be sure to jump in and tell your fellow GameSpotters. Even if you're new to the forums, pop in and say hi!

I pre ordered Little Deviants at EB yesterday for $29. That's a pretty awesome price even if the game is meant to be a tech demo. Not long now... not long at all :D

Also EB Games has a deal on Rayman Origins for $33 when you buy a Vita in the same transaction.
