Technology heavyweight Sony has affirmed that PlayStation Vita game titles, soon to be available in the US market, will be cheaper if downloaded directly from the PlayStation Network as compared to buying the boxed copies.
Sony, with this announcement, has proved that its primary target at present, leans more towards generating customer delight. Discounted digital copies have been confirmed for the PS Vita in Japan. The tech giant however has not yet made an official announcement as to whether the discount would be applicable to the US market.
The Japanese market has been enjoying the PS Vita since last December and it will be launched in the US on February 22 with more than 20 game titles. Since Sony is pushing for more digital downloads, it only makes sense to provide consumers with an aggrandised joy with some added incentive with discounted digital copies.
Best Buy has already begun selling codes to redeem games from the PlayStation Network for MLB 12 The Show at $35.99, Reality Fighters at $26.99, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss at $44.99. The difference is about a 10% discount from boxed copies reports Shack News.
Sony executives confirmed that there will be a discount on the downloadable PS Vita titles from PSN. Exact details have not been unveiled but an announcement about the details is awaited in near future.
