Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Everybody’s Golf and memory cards priced as Sony builds up to the European and Australian release of the PlayStation Vita.
Following the announcement of what gamers in the United States of America can expect from day one of the PlayStation Vita’s launch in that particular region, Sony have now released the prices for their entire roster of first-party launch day games and accessories.
The information given below is for the PAL territories which include the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Kicking things off with the memory cards, which are a necessity, is one wishes to play titles such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Ridge Racer. The cheapest memory card gamers can expect to get their hands on are the 4GB sticks priced at €19.99, £17.99, AUD
26.95, NZD 34.95.
The 8GB memory sticks come in at €34.99, £31.99, AUD 44.95 and NZD 59.95. The largest memory card available in Europe will be the 16GB one, as the 32GB stick has not been confirmed for the region. The card itself is set to cost €49.99, £44.99, AUD 64.95
and NZD 84.95.
In terms of Sony Computer Entertainment’s first-party games line-up, gamers can expect to a range of prices varying from game to game. Little Deviants and Reality Fighters will be the cheapest games on offer costing just €29.99 or £24.99 (AUD 39.95, NZD
54.95) respectively.
The more serious games such as the cross-platform WipEout 2048, Unit 13, Everybody’s Golf and ModNation Racers: Road Trip will set gamers back €39.99 or £34.99 each. That is 54.95 AUD and 69.95 NZD.
Uncharted: Golden Abyss is the most expensive game that is on offer and is priced at €49.99 or £44.99 (AUD 69.95, NZD 89.95).
There are a number of accessories that will also be on offer ranging from an AC Adaptor priced at £8.99 to a must have portable charger which will set consumers back €49.99 or £44.99.
The in-ear headset costs just under €20 (19.99) which is equivalent to £17.99. A starter kit and traveler kit are also available for £21.99 and £25.99 respectively.
The listing are of course only of Sony’s first-party games and official accessories, so one can expect that at least in the case of the latter, that there will be cheaper alternatives. The one question that remains is whether or not gamers will pay the equivalent
price of a PlayStation 3 game for one on the handheld console?
Sony have a lot riding on the success of the PlayStation Vita and the consumer electronics giant will be looking not to repeat the ‘lack of content’ mistake they made with the PlayStation Portable or the ‘slow sales growth’ mistake that they suffered with
the PlayStation 3.
