I hope they do the same thing in Europe. . .try not to bend us over Sony. Digital versions should always be cheaper than their hard counterpart. The only instant I know this not to be true is in the book industry. There are laws around Europe that prevent ebooks from being cheaper than the hard copy rrp apparently.

Sweet! If only memory cards were cheaper. Lol. Even the 32 Gb at $50 would be incredible! Plus, Sony would still make a big profit.

Only five dollars cheaper? I'd rather pay the extra five dollars and get the physical copy! If it was $10 then yeah it would be worth it, but only $5?

seriously lol, used games will probably be about the same price as the download

and if the digital prices now are any indication of what they will be for the vita, the physical price will drop pretty fast while the digital version stays at full price for quite a while

Well, it shouldn't be a set amount of dollars, because some games are 40 and some are 20. 10 dollars off one is 25% and 50% for the other.
