All told, that's an additional $69-89 worth of content added to a $70 discount on a $249 device. Perhaps you can see why I couldn't pass that up, even at the expense of a drastically reduced tablet (particularly when the Galaxy Note II's in my cross hair).
Great savings!! My nephew would have loved me had I gotten him that for Xmas - of course my sister would have cut all contact to me in return. She thinks he plays too much, I tend to disagree: he gets a measly 30mins/day allowance. I was thinking of just getting the Crystal one from Sony anyway, but is 11, so the game that comes with it is a no-go. And then there is , again, my sister.
