    Vita Games Cost 50 Euro

    Sony prices Vita games as high as PS3 titles | Game Development | News by Develop

    50 for triple-A mobile releases, while digital editions get a 20 per cent discount

    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.

    lets be a little objective though, the >1 apps are likely to be a slightly lower quality game.
    I was thinking about boasting about my :plat:'s and 100%'s, but then I thought why bother, not like they're anything amazing.

    Big difference between 50 and €50, not sure which is the real price but either way that's well more than what I'd pay for a new release on PS3. Ps3 games here can be as low as €40 on release day (I got U2 at that price) so having vita games at least €50 really doesn't make me any more interested in getting one.

    No, not likely. It's a fact

    The apps on those devices won't be able to compare with Vita's games because of the hardware running them. Its a shitty analogy in the first place.

    It seems that they always price US items the same as euros, so I predict it will be $50.

    I'm looking forward to this. Definitely going to have to pre order a Vita end of this month via the Sony store =). I'll prob wind up only picking up one or two Vita games as they come out if the pricing is overly expensive.

    Games are rarely sold at their RRP anyway, so whilst they'll RRP at 50, they'll most likely sell at 40-35

    Only a 20% discount for going digital and that's a price that will always be non-negotiable unless theirs a deal.... Sorry, I'll stick with my retails on Ebay and Amazon, where I always buy for 50%+ off brand new.

    Thats a bit extreme, although I wonder how much of this is converting and how much is Sony's true direction. Take the PS3 hardware for example, if you convert actual currency around... The prices for none of the regions match-up. Same for the games too.

    I'd expect there to be more thought than this and us in the US/EU to see cheaper prices than this.

    That being said its insulting for them to imply that somehow Apple's/Android's $0.99 apps are comparable to the typical Vita game.

    Seriously, I'm starting to think true gaming is dead. I have games for my iPhone, compared to a typical PS3/PC/360 game, they are all crap. Even on the "ports" (like Sonic 4) the controls and graphics are worse and I implictly feel things are dumbed down because of consumer expectations. Mobile games are designed to fill one purpose in my mind: To kill 15-30 minutes while you are waiting. Its all shallow action/puzzle games.

    Fact of the matter is it seems these stupid analysts and even some people on this forum *coughApplePopecough* seem to expect a game like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope is somehow equivalent to Half-Life 2, Valkyria Chronicles, Mass Effect 2 or Uncharted 2 (or comparable PSP/DS games depending on the conversation).

    I'm sorry, but implying this is absolutely moronic. I feel like people who claim mobile gaming is killing consoles should also be claiming sites like Kongregate and Newgrounds are killing consoles as well, yet I see none of that.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
