Vita PSN Prices Announced

Updated with news of Stardust DLC.

We’ve been wondering about prices for Sony’s downloadable Vita treats for a while now.

We’ll be honest, we were expecting something around the £10 mark per game so this little announcement from Sony is very welcome indeed, let’s hope that third party publishers can manage similar prices.

Here’s the list of prices so far:

  • Escape Plan £9.99
  • Top Darts £6.49
  • Hustle Kings £6.49
  • Super Stardust: Delta £6.49
  • MotorStorm RC £4.79

Now, call us hopelessly optimistic but from that little list we think Sony might just have nailed this download pricing thing for Vita. Well done to them.


Update: looks like Stardust has some day-one DLC for another fiver or so, with Endless, Impact, Bomber and Twin Gun modes locked off in the £6.49 purchase price.

    MotorStorm RC £4.79!!!!??! Fantastic price. As this a PS3/Vita title is that the same price for PS3 too?

      The Vita version comes with the PS3 version and vice versa, I’m sure. I remember them announcing that. Buy one and get it on both devices.

      Yes it is. Let’s hope we see a lot more of that. The VITA’s main target are PS3 owners, but we haven’t seen a lot of interaction (this & WipeOut?).

    Wow, absolutely spot on. Especially Motorstorm RC. Great price. Any chance of getting these in Euros if you can? I’d do a normal conversion, but you never what what SCEE’s special mark-up for Euros will be.

      MotorStorm RC is €5.99. No confirmation on anything else yet but that should give some indication of the conversions.

    Ok, those are brilliant prices, Motorstorm and Super Stardust especially. This is making getting a Vita mighty tempting…
    I can’t afford it day one but I’ll definitely be getting one somewhere down then line.

    so, in the pre-orde starter box, we get a £5 discount. does that mean we can all get Motorstorm for free?

      I think it’s only against 4 titles mate, so it may not include MotorStorm RC…but I could be wrong. I’ll be redeeming mine against Escape Plan and then purchasing MotorStorm! :)

        Looks great – especially when you consider the price, and that it works on PS3 too. Hopefully this’ll set the standard for other developers – I mean, no one could then bring out a similar racing game that was Vita only for £10, it just wouldn’t make sense unless it was way better than MotorStorm!

      Motorstorm isn’t on the voucher, you just made me check.
      Escape Plan, Super Stardust, Little Deviants and Hustle Kings.
      I’ll be using mine on Escape Plan and buying Motorstorm.
      Might pick up Super Stardust somewhere down the line too. :)
      Fantastic pricing, I genuinely thought I’d be paying between €20-€30 for Motorstorm, especially as it includes the PS3 game as well!

    Very good prices. Sadly I won’t be able to pick up a Vita until early June though.
