    So the games will cost £45 each? Ouch. You can get brand new PS3 games for that.

    Shame, three out of those four devices have been out for several years and thus pointless to compare its present price to that of new console.

    The only relevant price comparison would be the 3DS' initial launch RRP of £229.99

    Back when the PSP launched, it RRPed at £180 if I remember correctly. The "Giga Pack" was £215. Of course, that was quite a while ago.

    I'm not comparing it for the sake of an either or comparison of what people might buy, but to give people an idea of what games systems cost in the UK. Remember when the Australian price of the 3DS was supposedly leaked and everyone was goin "Holy shit, it costs 500 USD" or whatever and people had to point out that games are generaly more expensive downunder?

    Just thought I'd give an idea of if it would seem an expensive games machine in the UK or not.

    If I ever do decide to get the Vita, I might import it from America. Save myself £70.

    But you won't get access to the EU PSN Store and all it's fantastic content.

    Oh wait...

    I myself will be enjoying it for the comfortable price of $250 USD. GO AMERICA WOOOH.

    What people don't consider is that the reason everything costs more here is because of the 20% VAT and various taxes. One example is America having to pay for health care and such, whereas we get it for free. I'd say we're still a lot better off.
    Those Vita games are the RRP. You can get Uncharted Golden Abyss on Amazon for £28.

    You can still get access to any PSN, you're just stuck with it once you've choosen what region you want.

    It's pretty disgusting that Uncharted is £44.99, I'll wait a while or see how much the digital version is.
