Vita memory cards are expensive

Written by David Stellmack



Proprietary format decision puzzles


Confirmation of the pricing for the PlayStation Vita’s proprietary memory cards has broken cover. The news isn’t good; and those considering the purchase of a PS Vita will want to take this cost into consideration.

The Vita cards will come in four sizes: 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB. With the 4GB costing $29.99, the 8GB costing $44.99, the 16GB costing $69.99 and the 32GB card costing a whopping $119.99. Vita’s decision to not embrace the industry SD card format or even Sony’s only Memory Stick format is a mystery to nearly everyone.

With the pricing structure the way that it is, it makes a very good case for Vita owners to pass on the smaller cards and move right to the largest card in an effort to save money long term. The North American pricing is in line with what Sony is charging in Japan. Also, the pricing of the cards does make the ability to purchase the titles at retail, rather than download, much more appealing, as you don’t need as many cards to store downloads.
