PlayStation Vita Games to Be Cheaper as Digital

Japanese magazine Famitsu has revealed the pricing on a handful of PlayStation Vita games, and a new pricing model which puts the digital version at a lower price.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss costs ¥5,980 for the physical version, but only ¥4,900 for the downloadable version. The trend continues with Hot Shots Golf 6 (¥4,980 for physical; ¥3,900 for digital), Ridge Racer (¥3,980 for physical; ¥3,580 for digital) and Katamari: No Vita (¥4,980 for physical; ¥4,480 digital.

Taking the weak American dollar into account, these prices should translate into about $60 for physical and $55 or $50 for the digital download only version of each title.

Is the $5 or $10 price reduction enough to get you to buy digital only? And with it being a handheld device, do you feel a digital copy allows the Vita to be even more "portable".
