I like that I know it's not much but still a nice gesture by a company that actually gives a damn about its customers, look forward to this on release day

Sony planning "more tailored approach" to Vita game pricing
« Reply #24 on: November 30, 2011, 02:22:01 pm »
Sony plans to offer multiple price-points for Vita software to combat the growing threat of cheap smartphone games to its handheld business, PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan has revealed. While the company has yet to confirm details ahead of the console's European launch next February, Ryan told Eurogamer sister site GamesIndustry.biz: "I think it would be safe to assume we will take a more tailored approach than perhaps we've done in the past."

Speaking in London last week following confirmation of the first-party launch titles in Europe, Ryan admitted it would be "foolish and naοve to ignore what's happening" in the smartphone sector. "It's our challenge to ensure that the gaming experience that we provide is closer to that TV console experience than it is to your 69p thing that you've downloaded on your iPhone," he added. "If we do that and we provide great value to the consumer on games like Uncharted, I think the possibility to sustain historic console type price points is there."

One launch title that may be priced lower than premium is the newly-announced MotorStorm RC from Evolution Studios, coming to Vita and PlayStation 3 as a digital download, with cross-platform functionality. Evolution group game director Matt Southern said: "We've not announced the price yet, but we have announced that for one price you'll get both versions." Later last week, during a panel discussion at Develop Liverpool, Southern added that the studio was in dialogue with Sony over pricing, hinting that a lower-than-premium point was preferred.

Further seeking to differentiate Vita from its smartphone rivals, Ryan said: "Absolutely it does do other things, but it has been designed as a gaming device, and a perfectly logical consequence of that is that the gaming experiences you can have on Vita are superior to what is possible on a device that has other functionality at its heart."

Elsewhere, Ryan admitted that predicting the relative popularity of the 3G and wi-fi only models of Vita was something "we agonise over endlessly internally". However, he said Sony expected the wi-fi model would "just shave it" in numbers. "But the truth be told, we just don't know," he continued. "This is one area where we're going to have to be very nimble internally and if consumer preference skews one way or another we will adjust very rapidly to meet what the true underlying consumer demand is."

I don't want to guess how much the pricing is going to be for Vita and I will be looking around for some good deals when I buy one on release.

I think the games will be priced higher then PSP new releases and have a feeling it will be between £30 - £40 per game.

It's good that Sony are going to take a different approach to pricing and it's going to be a very interesting few weeks.

Hmm, I think they'll be around 20 for Sony games not including AAA titles like Uncharted and Wipeout (maybe about 30). Can't see them going above 30 tbh
