Vita games getting simultaneous digital/retail releases

0

Sony has confirmed that all PlayStation Vita games will feature simultaneous launches of digital and retail games. This is yet another improvement over the failed PSPgo experiment, where some physical games would take weeks to reach the PSN, or sometimes never arrive at all.

According to Sony engineer Chris Norden, "PSN is supported from day one, right out of the box at launch." The Vita will be a bit more open than current home consoles too, with free-to-play business models supported by the system. 

Norden also reconfirmed cross-game chat as an exclusive PS Vita feature, something that's still missing from the PlayStation 3 despite fan pressure. 

"We know everybody wants it on PS3 so we're doing it on Vita," he said. 

Did he just troll us? Well done, sir!
