PlayStation Mobile, Sony’s publication suite for Vita and certified Android devices, launched today with an initial line-up of 21 games.

The service is now live in Canada and the US and should roll out to Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and the UK today. Visit this link to get started.

    Why do I need to add $10 to my PSN wallet to buy a game, video or app that costs less? It’s stupid & has always annoyed me- not as much as MS’ stupid point system but still an irritating occurrence. People don’t want to spend $10 when they’re looking at a $3 Mini game, even knowing they can use that $7 later, it’s the upfront cost that’s a turnoff- especially when that person is too poor to have that upfront price in their savings account :(

    @1 Because the alternative is using credit cards? Or are you implying the Vita store doesn’t accept them? If it is, wth sony?

    @2, It’s a Visa card, shouldn’t make a difference if it comes from savings or credit.

    Thoroughly enjoying Fuel Tiracas, Super Crate Box and Hungry Giraffe. Aqua Kitty is okay-ish – just about to start on Beats Slider (FuturLab really know their stuff, pretty sure Rovio or others will be sniffing around soon).

    @2
    PSN works on a wallet system. If you have money to cover a purchase in your wallet then you can buy, if not then you have to add money to the wallet. However there is a minimum amount you can add to the wallet – £5 in the UK. If you are buying something which is £9.50 then it will add the £9.50. Presumably the minimum amount is to reduce credit card charges on their side.

    @7, I’m aware of how it works, I just don’t get why. Steam has no problem having both a wallet system & individual cheap purchases. I just find the way PlayStation wallet works defeats the purpose of cheap games when it requires you to spend more than you intend.
