Vita games appear on US PS Store

Wednesday, 8th February 2012 08:03 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Vita games have appeared on the US PS Store, showing some slight discounts over their physical counterparts.

As TSA reports (via GAF), Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is $35.99, ModNation Racers: Road Trip is $26.99, Super Stardust Delta is $9.99, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss has no discount at $49.99. WipEout 2048′s is $35.99.

The games haven’t appeared on the EU PSN as yet. These downloads – aside from Uncharted – are around 10% lower than buying the physical games.

Although unconfirmed, it seems owners of Japanese Vitas can now buy and download these games as the handheld is region-free. You need to transfer them to the console via a PS3, and you’ll need a US PSN account, obviously.

Vita releases in the US and Europe on February 22.

    Digital copy of Uncharted Handheld for 50 bucks… Sony shows once again how out of touch they really are. It doesn’t matter how great Uncharted GA is (I think it looks superb) and how much money / effort went into making it, people are now completely used to buying any MOBILE game for less than 10.

    It doesn’t matter even if UGA is exactly like a console game, mentally it’s gonna be hard to shell 40 bucks for a DIGITAL handheld game let alone 50. It’s like nobody has learned anything from Steam or Android / iOS market.

    For what it’s worth, WipEout is really great so far. Still waiting to play it online, but they seem to have completely nailed it.

    @pat absolutely agree. Finished the SP a couple of days ago and am going back and eliting all the races that just got passes. Silky smooth, ridiculously fast and track design that’s up there with the best of the WipEout tracks. Particularly like Sol, but then I liked Rainbow Road in MK :)

    Can’t wait to get online with it.
