    No Discount for EU PSN

    Sony has just public the list of Launch titles on PSN Store - PlayStation Store Update: PS Vita Launch Edition – PlayStation.Blog.Europe

    Wipeout 2048 cost 29.99, which is the same price Game.co.uk and Amazon.co.uk (0.02 Cheaper) takes for a Psychical Copy.

    Another example is BLAZBLUE CONTINUM SHIFT EXTEND.
    PSN 34.99
    Amazon.co.uk - 29.99
    Shopto.net - 36.85 (Limited Edition) - 25.85 (Standard Edition)

    So it's actual more expensive to buy Digital than Retail.

    As has been discussed in the comments on the blog post you link to, the PSN Store titles are discounted from RRP, it is just that some retailers discount them even more.

    Sony could go into a price war with retailers, lowering their prices further, but (again as has been discussed) they need to keep a good relationship with retailers who stock their consoles and games. At this point in particular, it is more important for Sony to have consoles and games physically in stores where people beyond Sony diehards can see them and maybe even buy them, than to placate said diehards.
