PlayStation Vita Games To Cost $39.99?

Sony fans have worried about the price of PlayStation Vita games ever since Sony announced the system, and for good reason. Certainly, a handheld that’s almost on par with PlayStation 3 in terms of raw horsepower would result in $49.99 games, right?

No so, says Amazon. Pre-orders began today for Vita, and the online giant lists all of the games for $39.99.

Keep in mind that Sony has yet to officially reveal prices for all these games, and that third parties may charge more.

That said, it would be great news, especially since the system costs $249 and $299, depending on whether you buy the Wi-Fi only or 3G models.

Yep, I really don't see games going up to $50 for Handhelds.

well all ps vita preorders for games on any where is $39.99. also if we take into account of the japan pricing for the ps vita games you would see that it is the same price for the psp games in japan.

I agree 100%. Nobody would spend more than $40 for a handheld game.  The $39.99 price for the Vita games sounds right.

I'd be willing to pay $39.99. Anymore would be ridiculous.

$40 would be the maximum reasonable cost I would pay upfront locally for a new Vita game, though I would crank it up to $70 for imports from Asia.

Also, this applies to Physical games only. Digital gets lower limits for me. $25-$30 or less.

@Doppelgangergang  what if they mailed you the manual with the downloaded game?  like if they had it so you buy the game Digitally it comes with a code or something you can mail to the dev and they send you the game manual free. like how there is a game manual in each game that you buy physically.

sure they will not do that , but that surely is something I would support. call me crazy , but I do not like downloaded manuals.

no game for a handheld should cost more than $40, unless its a special bundle or promotion offer then I would understand
