Sony has confirmed that all its video games set to be released on the forthcoming handheld, the PS Vita, will be available for digital purchase as well as physical boxed copies.

During GamesCom earlier this week, it was announced that the PlayStation Store would offer titles to consumers through the PS Vita itself.

As well as being able to download PS Vita games, anybody who purchases the handheld console will also be able to download games available on its predecessor, the PSP.

However, there was still no announcement made regarding the release date and pricing the device will come with.

It has been suggested that Sony has had to re-think their original plans after its competitor, Nintendo’s 3DS, recently dropped its price to as low as £100 after poor sales in its earlier months.

Sony did also announce that a number of free apps were in the works for popular social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter, and also Skype.

The company has moved to deny rumours that have been circulating regarding the Vita’s memory, with suggestions that it had been halved.

The rumours suggested that the firm would need to cut hardware specifications so as to release the console at a reasonable price, but Sony has stated that this is definitely not the case.
