When details of the Vita started to come to light one aspect of the handheld got everyone’s attention and caused quite a stir — the memory cards. Some people said that the Vita’s price was too good to be true and used the proprietary memory card as their proof that it wasn’t. Then rumors came out that cards would be upwards of $120.
The rumors turned out to be exaggerated, but not greatly. Playstation Blog posted launch details such as launch titles and accessory pricing which includes the proprietary cards. Here are the sizes and prices:
4GB for $19.99
8GB for $29.99
16GB for $59.99
32GB for $99.99
Now if those were the usual SD cards you could get a 32GB card for around the $30 range pretty easily. Whether these proprietary cards are better than SD cards or not these cards are still priced exorbitantly.
