Pocket-burner? Play.com prices Vita games up to £45

Monday, 19th December 2011 12:37 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Play.com‘s priced Vita titles and memory cards ahead of official confirmation from Sony, including a listing of £45 for Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Also listed are low-end titles such as Little Deviants and Reality Fighters at £18. Mid-range games like Everybody’s Golf, Wipeout 2048 and Modnation Racers are in between £30-£35. For the memory cards, it’s £18 for 4Gb, £31 for 8Gb and £45 for 16Gb. Some Vita titles require a memory card for saving. Worth noting that Amazon has listed Golden Abyss for £28.

Sony hasn’t announced UK prices for games or accessories as yet. The handheld, following a Japanese release this weekend, launches in the west on February 22. Thanks, EG.

    I fear that it’ll fail to sell many games just like the original PSP, not only because of price but because of how capable the hardware is & it’s not just piracy Sony has to worry about, emulators are a surprisingly big problem, just wait for all the Nintendo, Sega & Sony emulators, maybe even an Xbox emulator to get up & running on this thing once it’s hacked.

    I was looking forward to the system, cause you know…Uncharted looks great. Escape Plan looks really unique and fun, and so does Gravity Rush. But the whole fun gets ruined when they don’t include a simple fucking thing called a memory card. Instead they just let you buy that shit seperate and overpriced as hell.

    The system itself, 250 euro (personally i woulnd’t need 3G, so WIFI is fine)
    really ain’t alot, it’s quite good really. But combine that with games costing around 50 euros (same as 360 here) and like 30 or 40 euros for 16 (which should be enough….i hope) and you are nearing the 350-400.

    Well if buying everything individually is your biggest problem you could.. well.. you know buy the bundle which gives you a game and 4 gb memory card with travel case for just 50bucks more the suggest retail price.

    Or you can just keep screaming pocket rape

    The encouraging thing about this is that games are variably priced. We don’t see enough of that on the consoles and I’m sure it’s the death of many a title.

    It’s also worth bearing in mind that the RRP for most PS3 and 360 games is £50-55. No sane person actually pays that, and whilst I’m sure stores will charge a premium for Vita games at launch — as with the 3DS — it won’t take long for things to settle.

    The more interesting question for me is what the PSN pricing will be like.

    @3 & 5: There is no announced equivalent of the First Edition bundle outside the US and Canada.

    When NO shop in my hometown offers such a bundle, then i can’t say anything else than what i previously did. So far none of them are talking about a bundle :(

    The only ‘bundle’ they got is…. “Pre order now and get” :

    1- 5 euro discount on a game in the PS Store for Vita
    2- Early Access to ‘Frobisher says ‘ app
    3- PS vita items for PS home
    4- PS Vita avatar for PSN
    5- PS vita earbuds

    remove all this nonsense, and just give me a memory card with it :(

    a 4GB memory card is 18 euros at Play.com…i just hope 4gb is enough.

    wow at variable pricing! :O

    yea I doubt that those prices will stick for long after launch anyway, its just sony trying to get more money out of early adopters (remember the 360 launch when games were £50? :-/)
