If you feel you're gonna need to go back to a diet of instant ramen coincidentally after next month's international launch of Sony's PlayStation Vita, Sony has good news for gamers on the go looking to save.
A Sony rep confirms with Shacknews that digitally distributed releases of applicable Vita software in North America should enjoy lower pricing compared to the physical game catridge versions:
"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."
The discounts over the boxed retail releases are expected to sit around 10 percent, which ought to make $50 USD launch titles (namely Uncharted) a lot more tantalizing in digital form. This is in keeping with similar digital discounts enjoyed by Vita users in Japan.
Assuming you don't particularly care for physical copies of games and think most instruction manuals that come with them stink now anyways, the incentive to go digital (storefront) just got a tad bit higher.
