Whether or not Sam Fisher has night vision goggles in Conviction. $50 on the line between Vinny and Ryan.

Jeff also said something about a bet involving how soon DJ Hero would drop in price on twitter. Not sure about the details of that though.

I'm betting that the goggles in game are not night vision. They're some kinda sonar.

Can't wait for Ryan's proceeding passive-aggressive and antagonistic attitude towards Vinny.

Vinny.

LMAO! Great, now Ryan's editing that part out of the bombcast. 
 
Weren't there some stipulations, though? Ryan's a stickler fer stipulatin'. 
I guess we'll find out later.

 I thought Vinny said yes to NVG. Therefore Ryan wins:

This was about wheather or not the renegade edition would be under $80 (i think) by February, but there was no wager.

The original bet was if he'd have the three lights and Ryan basically said 'no, he's not gonna rely on that technology.'
Jeff said "I think you're smart to take that bet", because Sam Fisher is all rogue and bad-ass now.
I don't know when and how it changed into if there'd be NVG's, but the whole "they're sonar goggles!" is totally Ryan's way of cheaping out.
 
By all accounts of a gentleman's wager, Vinny was correct in his assumption and should've won.
