PlayStation Vita Online Modes Revealed: Near, Party, LiveArea, and Activity -- Will This Revolutionize Portable Gaming?

The PlayStation Vita launches in the United States on February 22 (or February 15 if you pony up extra dollars for the First Edition bundle), and it has long been speculated that boxed games sold at retail will be cheaper if purchased in downloadable form from PSN. That's how it works in Japan, after all. Sony now confirms to ShackNews that yes, this is indeed the case.

The exact discount number hasn't been officially confirmed, but there's some pretty strong evidence suggesting that PSN purchases will cost at least 10 percent less than their retail counterparts. A NeoGAF user dug up Best Buy product listings for several DIG-PSV titles -- presumably the ID for redeemable PSN codes that will be sold in stores -- and they're all at least 10 percent less than what the suggested retail price for each boxed game is.

According to the Best Buy listings, the DIG-PSV version of MLB 12 The Show is priced at $35.99 ($39.99 for the boxed version), Reality Fighters is priced at $26.99 ($39.99) and Uncharted: Golden Abyss is priced at $44.99 ($49.99).
