Ahhh! A year later and the same old b****ing. Yes they're overpriced and it's time for everyone to get over it.


This. It was even worse during the psp's first few years so you'd think people would have gotten over it a long time ago.

Attention humans: Sony will find a way to ream you. Get over it.


Then people have to stop complaining when others aren't happy with it. Letting companies think they can get away with anything is horrible for the consumer and the economy as a whole.

Saying they're overpriced is silly, it's like saying Black Ops 2 is overpriced because compared to a blank Blu-ray, it is.

With normal SD cards what do you get? Nothing but storage
With Vita cards? You get protection, software, peace of mind. The extra costs of producing these cards (yes, it isn't just a standardised system, they developed a new machine to print these cards). So a lot of it is also in R&D.

So next time you claim they're overpriced, think of this thread.


I get protection from what? protection from fast transfer speeds? The card isn't what's protecting me, it's the data management software. The cards are alright at best and 100% not worth the price.

Amazon is selling 64gb micro sd cards for $49.99 that's double the space of sony's highest card for the vita, and half the price. There's not one excuse. They want to monopolize their own proprietary crap.

I'm not going to read through all of this, but I have a question:

Why did they have to make the Vita have a different memory card system? or even the PSP for that matter? Why not just use regular SD cards?

Good thing that the vita's direct rival has been successing in stopping piracy since launch without needing a proprietary memory card.

Lmao @ ITP's horrible justification. You're basically saying Sony can charge whatever because of no competition.

The PSP cards were made when SD cards first came out and Sony thought they could compete and make their cards industry standard. Of course they failed and SD became standard but they made a lot of devices that used the cards before that happened.

I am not an early adopter. If your system is as awesome as you say it is, it will still be in stores when the games I want are out.

What anti piracy measures? The cards have nothing to do with it, all the anti piracy measures are on the Vita's OS and in content manager, nothing is on the cards at all. The Vita could be using any other type of memory card and the exact same anti piracy measures would still exist, the only difference would be cheaper memory cards. The anti piracy excuse is complete and utter BS.

That's the excuse Sony made but like everyone said, the hidden reason is $$$. I don't know much to anything as what it takes to hack a system but as we all know the PSP was hacked to the ground. It was hacked so bad you could play N64 games on it, and even download movies on it illegally and watch them.

Though I believe Sony's excuse this time holds up. It's been almost a whole year since the Vita's release and not one person yet has made a hack for it yet. Their is a guy that is trying to hack it and made a homebrew to get all PS# games off the PS3 on it, but we haven't heard from him since. So the mem cards do work to prevent piracy sort of, but give it another year and it'll be hacked.

Once again as we all know people will find some way to get games for free no matter what. It happens to every system and now I'm just waiting for the Wii U to get hacked. It's just a matter of time for every system no matter what a company tries to do.
