    PlayStation Vita videogame pricing has been revealed for the Japanese market. But more importantly digital games will be cheaper than retail titles these prices confirm.

    Every PS Vita game will be available day-and-date at launch in both digital form via the PlayStation Network Store as well as in physical form at stores. The likely U.S. price though is reported by retailers to be $40.

      To be honest, I might stay away from the Vita until it has really proven itself. Sony kind of let the PSP flounder, and it wasn’t a cheap console.  IMHO Sony needs to really make a push with the vita for some top notch games and good content, or risk losing out like they did with the PSP too…

      @e348b8a2d201ec7c6c2d56bc9d50b1d8:disqus : Agreed, I think Sony need 2 or 3 exclusive flagship titles to sell PlayStation fans on a new handheld at the $250-$300 price point. For me the must-have game that might make me pick up the system at launch is Uncharted: Golden Abyss. But I’m worried I’ll play that for 6 hours and then what?

      I’m not sure what I’m going to do with another Super Monkey Ball, Katamari Damacy, LittleBigPlanet & Ridge Racer game when I never finished the ones on PSP. That said, I AM very excited for the new Assassin’s Creed Vita game and Lumines: Electric Symphony!

      I will buy it on day 1, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 & Uncharted.

      I agree with you as well. But hopefully Sony has learned from their mistakes with the original PSP. Making games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and others cheaper digitally than at retail is a big step in the right direction. I do think the PS Vita has a pretty nice lineup so far though. You can bet that will be followed with lots of RPGs and all Sony’s big names.

      Looks great, day 1 purchase for me, plus it has trophy support which the PSP never had. Now on my travels I can stay in the trophy race with my friends.

      booommm, hefty price for me…!!! Already $50 to $60 is too much for me on PS3 and steam.
