    I've seen people recommend Amazon Japan. Not bought one there myself yet, but you can get them at MSRP and with customs prearranged. Over the years I've bought a few through nin-nin-game.com (high shipping cost and you'll have to wait a few weeks, but they can also send stuff to the EU customs-free via Amazon.fr) and solarisjapan.com (YMMV, had one slip through but got two held up in customs).

    That is, if you don't mind it being a Japanese model. Other than the X and O button swap on the LiveArea screen they're identical, but the few new European models that I see on eBay cost a lot more than getting one from Japan - and they even have cool choices of colors and special edition designs!

    zodaex that seems to be a common theme lately, but thanks nonetheless!

    AllHasRed I'm going for a JP model indeed, because I can't find any European shop selling a new Vita console in general anyway.

    Nin-nin seems attractive, because every non-EU package has been picked out ever since I entered Belgium, and there's a €20 standard rate ON TOP OF the 21% import costs. Prepaid customs are the best. PA used to have that option as well, but I can't find it anymore!

    Nin-nin sells it for just a little more, but the decrease in shipping costs and no customs surprises doesn't seem bad! Thanks!!

    Best places I have found are mom n' pop retro stores, they usually have the best prices.

    Yeah I know, but me and my wife are really looking for a new one, no second hand (and those I haven't seen at such stores).
