Vita game prices announced in Japan. It’s cheaper to download
Want to know how much PlayStationVita games will set you back? Well you can get some idea from Sony’s official prices of launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss, announced today in Japan. That’s right. Prices – multiple.
To buy a boxed copy, Japanese gamers will pay ¥5980, which works out just shy of £50. Digital copies of Uncharted: Golden Abyss will be cheaper though, priced at ¥4900 or £40 on PSN.
That sounds expensive, but these are just the RRP – actual shelf prices are likely to be lower. Well, they’d better be. Encouragingly, Japanese mag Dengkei PlayStation listed prices for another PS Vita launch title Hot Shots Golf 6 (otherwise known as Everybody’s Golf) as ¥4980 for the boxed copy and ¥3980 to download – £41.50 and £33 respectively. That’s starting to sound more affordable, depending on how much retailers duck under the RRP.
