Buying games physically:

Pros

  • It's physical
  • Doesn't take up huge amounts of storage on your memory card

Cons

  • You have to swap the game in and out every single time you want to play a different game
  • You have to carry around all of those small little games with you
  • The possibility of dropping and or losing the game all together

Buying games digitally

Pros

  • It's cheaper
  • It can be played on two PSN accounts
  • Future proofing yourself; just in case the PS Vita game cards become the new UMD, where it would not be officially supported any longer

Cons

  • There is no resale
  • Takes up space on a PS Vita memory card

You will be lucky to get any games cheaper on the PSN. Most of the time you will find them cheaper on places like Amazon

do to the mass ammount of downloads per game it cost next to nothing to give you a game off the net. I got this from netflix they say it only cost them pennies to stream several gigs to your home. they do it all the time so sony on really has to do it once and maybe once more in the future per copy of the game. the internet is cheaper then water they only charge so much cuase they can.......its in no way cheaper to buy a game online its just faster and in most cases your paying full retail price for lesser grade.

Long live play!

buying games online cost more you have to have internet services and a memory card for it vs no needed for internet subscription and no need for a big expensive memory card.

I think the point is that in all probability it costs Sony very little to host these games on the store and the cost to download goes to the customer so why are they charging such high prices on the store? The margins of profit are surely far higher on the store than retail.
