PS3 version $59.99 Vita version $39.99

Still trying to get my head around this, so they're the same game but priced differently. I know the Vita version has the smaller screen but isn't that the only difference?

Sony should really bundle them together for $79.99.

Vita should be MORE than Pestrah. Vita is a new system, they should be trying to cash in on it so it doesn't fail.

Who knows? They might end up pricing the PS3 version at 50, or even 40 dollars. I doubt it though.

But yeh if it is the exact same game that is going to be kind of weird. PS3 will probably have sharper graphics though and of course much easier local multi.

Sony and Microsoft intentionally set specific price-points at which almost all games are released on their consoles. They do this to create an illusion of arbitrary value to the system itself, which is higher than what the Publishers actually think the games themselves are worth.

Example: LEGO Batman 2

PS3 = $50
Vita = $40
PC = $30

A 20 dollar price-difference for the exact same game between the PS3 and PC versions.

Even more extreme examples are "Transformers: The Movie" game and "Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia", which both released on the PS3/360 for $60.

Their PC launch prices? $30.

Lower shipping costs on Vita game and lower production costs on Vita games.

im hopeful sony will do a "combo" deal like they did with mlb 12 the show where if you buy both versions on the same receipt you get $20 off.

Kinda the reason, actually. Cheaper games are more likely to be bought which will support the system.
