PS Vita games download prices cheaper than retail versions

Could this mark a change in strategy for Sony?

Sony has revealed the pricing structure for the PlayStation Vita games and it looks like the download versions will be cheaper than the retail versions.

The Japanese pricing for Uncharted: The Golden Abyss is showing the retail price at 5980 YEN with it coming in at 4900 YEN on PSN.

Hotshots Golf is showing a similar pricing scheme with it pricing at around 4980 YEN at retail and 3980 YEN on the PlayStation Store.

The PlayStation Vita launches in Japan on November the 17th and will not be region-locked meaning European and North American gamers will be able to import it if they simply must have the new handheld before the Western launch next year.
