Sony confirms plans to make all PlayStation Vita games downloadable

Summary:Confirming previous (and decidedly vague) statements, Sony says that titles for the PlayStation Vita will be sold in both digital and physical forms.

Is digital distribution the future of gaming? Sony seems to think so. The company has announced that games for its upcoming PlayStation Vita will be sold on the PlayStation Store alongside their physical counterparts.

The news, however, is more of a confirmation. Sony had been saying as early as March that it planned to offer digital versions of the Vita's titles. Still, its nice to know that the company is actually committing itself to the move.

Sony has been pretty busy with with announcements over the past few days. Yesterday, the company revealed the bizarre Wi-Fi-less PSP E-1000 as well as a $50 price-drop for the PlayStation 3 to $250.
