For all of the doom and gloom surrounding the PlayStation Vita, Sony has revealed that more digital content is purchased for the handheld than the PlayStation 3. Chatting with Destructoid following this week’s PlayStation 4 unveiling, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida explained that the difference is down to all of the system’s content being available online.

"Digital business is the faster growing business," he explained. "We do not publish numbers, but every month it's almost a new record that the purchase on Vita is higher than the PS3, because everything is available [digitally]."

How frequently do you purchase downloadable content for your Vita? We must admit, we’re using the PlayStation Store increasingly more to pick up portable games, purely because it’s so much more convenient having all of your content in one place. Of course, the price of memory cards is still an issue.
