Hi guys

I live in Singapore and went Tokyo to purchase Vita Friday 17th . I have been playing with it for the past 4 days now so I can share my experience if you need and if you have questions.

Yes I confirm, games will be available either in downlaodable format or a new SD card.

Each game will be different digital discount depending on the company. In Japan Uncharted is 5,980 yen for physical and 4,900 yen for digital which is about 18% off. The discount will largely depend on the company though.

to be honest, I would (personaly) still buy physical card and only downloadable one when I have no physical store access. But this is my personal choice

I usually prefer the physical copy as well, but I will go completely digital with the Vita, because it seems the more convenient route to go for me. Not only do I save money on just about every game, but I don't need to carry my games with me. Also say if I were to buy physical games and take them with me in a case with the Vita, and it gets lost or stolen, i lose out on my Vita and all my games. I would have to buy them all again whereas the digital copies i can just buy the Vita only and redownload again if i lose my vita or it gets stolen.

I will be getting the physical copies. I like having them on a shelf instead of in a memory card. Apparently the load times are slightly better on the cards as well. THe digital ones are about 4 seconds slower. Not a massive difference but every second counts

Well that seems to be the case with Uncharted anyway, but I wonder how the load times are for other games. Also I don't mind waiting an extra 2-4 seconds i mean it's not like its 15-30 seconds longer. As I mentioned though I don't want to have to carry games around with me, and i'm very random when it comes to games. I could leave the house wanting to play Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, and end up playing MLB 12 The Show instead.

I just like having everything in one place that why I'll have most (if not all) of my games digital.
