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

While having the manual, cover art and the case is nice, I actually wanted the game cartridge itself.

Also, buying new also supports the dev.

@Doppelgangergang  well buying a download copy always supports the dev. It was just a question really. I'm sure that physically it will cost the same as a new psp game, because in japan new ps vita games cost the same as new psp games. also if the same pricing idea comes over sea's then buying the download copy will be cheaper then buying the physical copy.

The thing is, with Digital Distribution, you don't have to mold plastic cases, print manuals and manufacture game cards into a finished product. And, of course, you don't need to transport or distribute the said product loaded in cargo ships and truck them to stores all over the country, at which point your local retailer marks them up. By logic, cutting out the shipping, distribution, retail markup and even manufacturing would definitely definitively should reduce the cost of the product considerably.

And not to mention, it takes up space on your expensive Vita memory cards.

Yes that is the theory but it has not happened that way with PSP releases.

Most downloadable games come with a downloaded manual as well (except miniS).
