Digital Vita games ‘17% more expensive’ than retail

The launch games for the PlayStation Vita cost an average of 17 per cent more to download over PSN than they do to buy on the High Street or online.

That’s according to calculations from bargain hunting site SavyGamer, which has compared the recently released PSN price list with the best deals currently available online.

In both Japan and North America Sony chose to charge less for digital versions compared to physical copies.

With regard to the RRPs of Vita software, some games are technically cheaper on PSN while others have the same RRP for both.

Here’s the SavyGamer list:
