Vita games to cost the same as PS3 titles

Sony has indicated that future PS Vita software will be at a premium rate similar to current console games.

Uncharted Golden Abyss, a launch game for the upcoming high-end handheld, will retail for 5,980 (49.85). Hot Shots Golf 6, a more casual and lower-profile game, will cost 4,980 (41.50).

The costs fly in the face of modern pricing strategies for mobile games, with Apple and Google driving app charges below 1.

Sony is offering a discount of around 20 per cent if its games are downloaded digitally, in a move which passes distribution savings to the customer.

PS Vita will launch across the west early next year.
