Sony Using Expensive Memory For PS Vita For Security Reasons
Sony is pissing me off with this PS Vita memory card business. What they are doing is ripping off the consumers to an insane degree – 32gb for $120? Please. It’s ridiculous. They want to pretend that the Vita is a value at $249, but it’s not because you need to buy a memory card, too, because not every game will be able to save to the game card. Also, if you ever want to patch your games, and you will if you want to play online, you’ll need one. These memory cards are a necessity.
And Sony is now making excuses for needing to use a proprietary format. Munechika Nishida spoke with Impress Watch, and he said they used this format because they were concerned with security. This means they don’t want you putting your own s–t on the cards.
He also said they used the cards because they want everyone standing on the same footing. I am not at all impressed with that answer.
