    New or used?

    Just for when I get to New York and go games shopping.

    Gamestop overall, based off the fact that you can buy almost any used game there. Best Buy also has used games, but they don't have as great of a selection. Both of these have new games as well.

    If you really want to get out there, you may want to try visiting J & L Game Trading. I heard it was an awesome place, and it's not your mainstream big-box store.

    I have a list and I'm not checking it twice:

    The Last of US
    GTA V
    God of War Ascension
    Ratchet and Clank - Into the Nexus
    Arkham Origins
    South Park

    Killzone Mercenary (VITA)
    and probably a FIFA game as well.

    I've crossed checked them with gamestop just to get an idea on prices. I won't get them all but should be able to do well with $100 - $150.

    The list used to be a lot longer but PS+ has whittled that down (Metal Gear Rising, Tomb Raider, Sly 4, Gucamelee etc)

    You might swing 3 games at GameStop.

    Lol Beyond Two Souls is $60 there. That floored me.

    But GTA is cheap(ish), TLOU is still $50. But the others are $20 - $30 new so maybe cheaper used.

    If I were you, I would hold off on Ratchet and Clank (as much as I love that series), as I think it will be on PS Plus very soon. Any sony studios game has a much higher chance of getting on there. I know April's PS Plus (I think US) is releasing Arkham City for free, so maybe Origins will do the same eventually.

    Defintiely get The Last of Us and GTA V. Those 2 are a must. I also heard South Park was awesome. I played the beta of Killzone Mercenary on my Vita and it was great, but I do not know how large the multiplayer community is right now. I think you could knockout the majority of that list with $100-$150.

    Yeah, the PS+ thing is a killer because I get the feeling Into the Nexus may be on it (though I am happy to buy it and support Insomniac), same with Beyond- Two Souls. But I might wait until that is cheaper in Australia.

    I'll check out best buy if I find it for TLOU. I get to New York next week so we'll see what happens. I don't really play multi-player games on Vita so the online community doesn't bother me too much about Killzone.

    There's more to the list but they are backups, like Ni No Kuni, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Dragon's Crown, Skyrim, Dead Space 3 etc.

    I'll definitely get it. It came out right before I left so I've been avoiding spoilers for a hell of a long time.
