For those wondering if PlayStation Vita owners in the US will get a discounted price for purchasing the digital releases of their games as compared to boxed retail copies (as in Japan), it looks as though that may indeed be the case. An intrepid Destructoid reader was browsing through their local Best Buy store and snapped up some shots of company computers listing the digital versions upcoming Vita titles Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Little Deviants, Modnation Racers, Hotshots Golf and Escape Plan as being priced 10% below the physical copy.

And then, just as we were getting ready to post about them, the gang at ShackNews got a confirmation from Sony who stated that while they aren't ready to give out details yet, Vita titles purchased over PSN will be subject to a discount.

Great news. This is really a step in the right direction for Sony if they plan to get the mass consumer on board with digital distribution.
