Posted on November 11, 2011, Ross Lincoln Details About Vita’s Game Transfer Fees Released
One of the more anticipated features of Sony’s upcoming Vita handheld is the ability to transfer games from PSP to the new hotness. But it’ll come at a price. All games will have to be re-purchased for Vita, but players who can prove they already own them can get a discount. Yes, that’s kind of lame, Sony.
Apparently, many full price games will cost ¥1,000 ($13, £8) for such transfers. Not bad, I suppose. The full slate of games for transfer won’t be available on day one, but eventually, so Sony says, Square Enix, Capcom and Konami are among the major companies who will eventually be participating in the program. Vita launches in Decemberin Japan, but North Americans and Europeans have to wait until February.
