    What's the multiplayer like playing remotely through the Vita ?

    I'm guessing single player games would be more suited due to any lag.

    Why are digital download games so expensive? for example Killzone is £54.99 on my PSN, WTF my local games shop has it new for £44.00, and with that you get the actual disk which you could, at a later date exchange, or sell when you complete or get fed up of it.

    Just can't see the point, if they were a more competitive price then yeah i would be interested, but dearer than the actual physical version, that's just greed, fuck off Sony

    I have signed up to the US Amazon there is a psn store on there you can buy digital download games and use a US psn account to redeem the code then just play on UK account - works out a bit cheaper that way

    Cheers mate i had read about that workaround, still pisses me off though, i see it as a huge missed opportunity by them, sell the digital downloads games cheaper and i bet they would sell a whole lot more.

    Apparently the UK Amazon are launching PSN digital downloads soon so prices may creep down as there is some competition?

    The retailers who are selling the console are making most of their profit from the games and not the consoles therefore for $ony to make the digital games cheaper would simply be a bad business idea, there must be deals struck with the retailers that $ony cannot undercut their prices.

    Think about it if you were a games business selling a console with little profit only for the console manufacture to undercut you with the games would kill off your business in no time.

    I think the retailers are fucked soon enough... eventually consoles will be bought from generic electrical stores/supermarkets and games will go all digital
    Might take a few years but eventually imho game/gamestation/cex e.t.c will either change drastically or go !!!

    It's just greed imo, my argument was, why are the digital download versions of a game more expensive than a hard copy?

    It's mainly down to publishers maintaining a delicate relationship with retailers, whom they rely upon to get the consoles out there.

    I imagine that the likes of Game have got another 12 months before extinction.

    FYI the Official Sony charge stand feels really swish, shame M$ don't offer the same.

    Retailers are competing against each other for sales of games and therefore going well below the RRP, $ony are simply selling their digital copies at RRP.

    The digital copies are like having 2 copies of the game though as you can use them on 2 separate consoles at the same time, the disc version would only allow you to play on one machine.

    Thats how it is on ps3 not sure on ps4 as i don't have one yet.

    3d is overrated do you ever actually use it to watch films or anything? I got a 3D tv and spent on the glasses must have used it around twice . . . . complete waste of money for me

    Trine2 does look fucking good in 3d though I have to admit

    I noticed the other day when I was in Tesco that '3D' is no longer a big selling point either. It was usually around 4th in the list of features... Behind stuff like 'Integrated Freeview' which is pretty much standard on all TVs now
