Playstation Vita fire sale!

If you've been on Kijiji lately, you may have noticed a sudden increase in Playstation Vita's for sale. You can thank TD Banks red hot deal of the day for this one.

Yep, the TD Rewards deal of the day recently was a Playstation Vita bundle including the system, the new Resistance game, and a starter bundle for $165 + tax ($186 total). That's half price.

The catch of the deal of the day is that they only have limited quantities (75 in this instance), so you have to enter into a draw to win the opportunity to buy it. I entered the draw thinking I could buy it and flip it on Kijiji. As luck would have it, I won!

I placed my order and received my Vita. I debated on whether I should keep it or put it up for sale. Finally, I decided to put it up on Kijiji.

I thought I was being reasonable putting it online for $240. I was set to make $50 profit, which isn't too bad, and people were getting a good deal at half price. Turns out, I wasn't the only one with this idea.

This guy was selling his for $298. That's way more profit than I was looking for.

This guy only wanted $290. What a deal!

$260. That's a bit more reasonable.

The bottom line is, I'm starting to wonder if anyone decided to actually keep their deal of the day Playstation Vita.

I found a lot more Vita bundles for sale, ranging from $200 to $300.

In the end, the Vita market seems saturated. Because of this, I've decided to keep my Vita. It's a pretty awesome piece of technology, it just needs some decent games.

If anyone's looking to pick up a Vita, check out Kijiji. They're every where.

The Undertaker Returns - BALD!

So the Undertaker is back, and he's definitley hiding something.... his bald head!
You see, the Undertaker shaved his head during his time off in the last year. Mist people thought he'd start to grow his hair back by this time, and maybe return with extensions. But he didn't.
Instead, he returned the night after the Royal Rumble wearing a pretty horrible wig to challenge Triple H to a match at Wrestlemania. Then he dissapeared for another two weeks, just showing vignettes of him reminiscing about last years match with Triple H. The final vignette had Undertaker so obsessed with revenge that he pulled out a switchblade and began chopping at his hair.
Which brings us to this week. Undertaker came out wearing a hood which was strategically placed to not show the sides of his head. It's pretty obvious that he's bald under there, but it looks like they are waiting for a big reveal moment.
Let's hope they do it sometime soon, because I think it will take people a bit if time to get use to a bald Undertaker.
