Perhaps WB thinks some people wouldn't mind paying a premium to run the game off the hard drive whenever they want.

I bet they could have sold a ton of digital copies of Madden 12 if it was available on PSN on launch.

Guess they removed it from the post, but could it have something to do with the secret sale they have going on right now? I'm not sure why, but I got a PSN message from Sega sent to me on Tuesday notifying me I could purchase Daytona USA for $5 by clicking the link attached to the message. Is this the first time they've done a 3rd party sale via PSN messages or has this occurred before?

Sweet, didn't know about this game!

Final Fantasy XIII-3 – Cocoon, a utopia in the sky. Its inhabitants believed their world a paradise. Under the Sanctum’s rule, Cocoon had long known peace and prosperity. Mankind was blessed by its protectors, the benevolent fal’Cie, and believed that tranquil days would continue forever. Their tranquillity was shattered with the discovery of one hostile fal’Cie.
The moment that fal’Cie from Pulse – the feared and detested lowerworld – awoke from its slumber, peace on Cocoon came to an end. Fal’Cie curse humans, turning them into magic-wielding servants. They become l’Cie – chosen of the fal’Cie. Those branded with the mark of a l’Cie carry the burden of either fulfilling their Focus or facing a fate harsher than death itself. A prayer for redemption.
A wish to protect the world. A promise to challenge destiny. After thirteen days of fates intertwined, the battle begins…
Set several years after Lightning and the others saved Cocoon, some survivors have decided to start over by rebuilding on Gran Pulse. Lightning, however, is nowhere to be found and thought dead by many, but Serah believes otherwise. When her town is suddenly overrun by monsters, a mysterious man named Noel appears to save her. Together, the two set off to find Lightning…

Not saying the price is not steep (it is), but the main problem here is that if I have a PS3 and plan to buy a Vita and want to play the game on both machines I have to buy essentially the same game twice.

...Yep. Popcap always does this, even on iOS. I have to buy PvZ on iPhone or iPad. The iPhone version will work on my iPad, but it'll look like arse :(

Don't drop your expectations for the whole system's digital offerings, drop them for specific publisher's treatment of digital. Maybe SCE will surprise us with their pricing of Escape Plan and Stardust.

That's got to be the most expensive downloadable version of Plants vs. Zombies in existence. If Sony wants to position the PS Vita as a viable alternative to iOS/Android for casual "quick fix" mobile games, then offering the same game as competing platforms for 5 times the price isn't helping.

Who decides the price, SOE or PopCap/EA? (Not that it matters too much, as it's a mistake either way.) If it's SOE, then SCE should really try to keep them on a shorter leash.

It's the same price as the PS3/360 version. I remember Jeff Green getting a lot of hateful comments when he announced the $15 price for the PS3 version on the blog...

Not sure if this has been posted but Susan Panico, the senior director of PSN, has just left Sony after 17 years. To be honest I think she has done a shitty job and think Grace Chen should get the boot too. Hope this signals a change in how PSN is run, more indie stuff, a more pro active approach to getting games on the service.

Well the original PC version was 20 dollars but yeah it should be 10 dollars at the most and I think it should be 5 bucks.

The whole department needs an overhaul. Hope Grace is next to go.
