Posted on September 14, 2011, Phil Owen PS Vita Memory Cards are Stupidly Expensive
Look at this link.
That’s right — you can get an 8gb SD card for under $5. This stuff is cheap. Sony doesn’t want you to know that, though, because they’re going to be charging out the ass for their proprietary PS Vita memory cards.
The smallest possible card, the 4gb one, comes with a ¥2,200 ($29) price tag. The largest card, at 32gb, comes with a ¥9,500 ($123) price. That’s just about f–king nuts, and it gets even worse when you realize the Vita does not include a memory card. Hidden costs, indeed.
