PS Vita Memory Card Price Leaked, Not the Cheapest

Category: Gaming
Posted: 08:29PM

I know many of you are eagerly awaiting the launch of the PlayStation Vita next February to see exactly what the new Sony handheld can do. I am sure you also know that some of the PS Vita games will require a memory card in order to boot, but we did not know how much these memory cards would cost. Sony still has not officially confirmed the price, but an early posting by GameStop has. I warn you, these memory cards are not exactly cheap, and while they may resemble an SD card, the price certainly does not. The 4GB PS Vita memory card will set you back $30, the 8GB at $45, the 16GB at $70, and the 32GB at a staggering $120. That is a pretty high price to pay for a memory card, even a proprietary one, but hopefully we will be able to make do with one of the cheaper cards. Still, these prices should drop over time, but it looks like we will have to deal with a high price at launch.

The PlayStation Vita launches in North America and Europe on February 22nd, 2012.

Let's hope that both the Vita along with the cards drop pretty heavily in price somewhat soon after release.

The next question is: how much space do we need if the only thing we want to save is about half a dozen games? I hope the smallest card will suffice in that circumstance. I hope the larger ones are only required for downloadable games, movies, etc.

I doubt the prices will drop to much. Quickly, yes. But just look at the PS3 and the PSP. Prices droped pretty quickly but not that much. Or the prices will drop a bit and Sony will re-release the system with a tweak or two and change %40 more.

Dont worry someone will make a MicroSD to Vita chip adapter within a few months of release and nobody will have to spend ten times as much per gig
