Vita Games Already Available On PSN

With not long before the Vita's North American launch, those who plan to snatch up the PSP successor can prep their wallets for some hot, digital download action. Serving mainly as a tease, while you stew in resentment toward a future that simple will not come, the early release on PSN does ensure that at least five titles will be ready at launch - thus giving oneself a handsome library the day of release - as well as reducing time spent at one's local video game retailer, thereby limiting exposure to the smelly, dead-eyed troglodytes that my bourgeois relatives refer to as "the working class." As revealed by G4, the games are:

Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational: $35.99

Uncharted: Golden Abyss: $49.99

Wipeout 2048: $35.99

Modnation Racers Road Trip: $26.99

Super Stardust Delta: $9.99 (PSN exclusive)

So for those willing to become Sony's guinea pigs early adopters of the Vita, and prefer digital downloads over physical media (I know you exist; I read the comments section), this probably comes as welcome news. However, one must remember the size of Vita games - on the high end, Golden Abyss is almost 2GB; other games average just over 1GB - which can eat up those precious, proprietary memory cards in short order, particularly if you're planning to download previous PSN purchases onto your device. For those more inclined toward actual game cards, it seems as though some GameStop locations are already selling Vita titles - Golden Abyss is currently listed as "in stock" at several locations in my Minnesotan frost-scape - though one would be wise to call ahead to confirm that it is available for purchase.

Does anybody know yet if Vita games can be backed up on my PC? I have all of my PSP games in a folder on my desktop and I move them on and off when I want to play them so they don't take up room on my card. It would be fantastic if the Vita also gave this option. I don't mind the space if I don't need to redownload every time.

Haven't seen anything suggesting you can... Sony's user's guide for the "content manager assistant" (http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/psvita/cm/backup_pc.html) doesn't make mentioned of it, and the internet at large doesn't seem to have any good info. The content manager does have a "controller" icon, but i can only assume that is for transferring save games.

Still, there will undoubtedly some kind of workaround, if only in a "non-approved" way, but nothing i've seen so far.

I don't think there is anything available as far as PC saves, but you can back up your games and saves on the PS3.
