Vita Download Prices vs. Retail Prices

Now that the PlayStation Store is available on the (released today) PlayStation Vita, we thought we'd do a quick comparison of what you'll pay for games, depending on how you choose to buy them.

Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition69.9579.95-12.51%
Wipeout 204860.9569.95-12.87%

Despite earlier reports that there would be a standard 10% discount for opting for the download version of a game, it seems that publishers can set the price however they'd like; discounts here, for example, vary from 8-43%, with BlazBlue showing no discount and FIFA actually costing more when bought from the PS Store.

We'll be keeping an eye on the variance in future and will bring anything of note to your attention.

A lot of the time you can buy lower than RRP as well so it could be a lot closer than that.
