Under the premise that all Digital Downloaded games will be 10-15 dollars off normal retail price....I will officially be buying all my games as DD along with the 16GB memory stick to put them on. I think DD is the way to go at least for A portable gaming device.

Typically I like having hard cover copies and such due to the fact that Download versions were always set at the same price as retail. That never made sense to me at all, but after finding out that Vita games would be significantly cheaper digitally then I think i'm sticking with that.

All I know is that I will be downloading all my games digitally. It has been a slow burn for me with the PSP and PS3 trying to sell games digitally but now I am ready to go all digital.

Gravity Rush, ModNation Racers: Road Trip, Blazblue and Lord of Apocalypse are all day one buys for me when I get my PSV.

Well what were the numbers and expectation?

They never let us know those things. And I don't think they ever will, unless the figures are mind blowing.

I actually felt the sales was weak for the PS Vita. It was priced the same as the Nintendo 3DS in the holidays, yet it sold less than the 3DS it's first week.

The 3DS sold about 400k the first week, while PS Vita sold 320k.

So the question then is what was the expectation?

smashcrashbash2588d ago

VITA sold 320k in two days. Not a week. A week is 7 days. I know a lot of people on this site are hard of hearing and don't like to listen or understand anything and are eager to put the VITA down but again this is a two day figure not a week. Again for the hard of hearing. Week = 7 days.

Are you daft? The Vita sold that in 2 days. The 3DS sold 371K in 2 days launch window. Not 400K... Did Sony rape you or something... God you are so irritating and juvenile...In every Sony article spouting your bullshit!

Looks like a lot of people are transferring their PSP games.

Gonna buy all my Vita games in hard-copy. PSP oldies will be digital (of course).

I'm glad I can't afford a Vita yet, because I'd be downloading PSP games like a mofo!
