Sony have confirmed that download codes and digitally distributed titles will cost less than boxed retail games for the Playstation Vita, although there's no exact indication of prices and differences quite yet. It had been rumoured that discounts could be as high as 40% for digital versions of games, but it's looking like it might be a bit smaller than that.
Issuing a statement to Shacknews, a spokesperson for the company said that "I can confirm that there will be a discount on the downloadable PS Vita titles from PSN. Exact details have not yet been revealed, but be on the lookout for an announcement in the very near future."
Reports suggest that a discount of around 10% will be the standard difference which means that the online titles will technically cost less individually, but fails to take into account the astonishingly high reported asking prices for the Vita's memory cards.
Sony have rendered the Vita incompatible with third-party memory cards, which is a shame because it seems Sony are looking to charge two or three times the price of standard storage when it comes to their new handheld.
