The Vita cards aren't overpriced
From: GLDanzego | #130After the train wreck that piracy on the PSP created, I was very happy to see Sony go with a proprietary memory card for the Vita. I'm NOT, however, excited to see them ripping people off as blatantly as they are on them.
and did you know that there were knock offs that were 90% cheaper and you could get them not too long after release?

or they'll just find something else to blame why their product isn't successful... and so on... if things don't go their way (ripping consumers off)
When you have a monopoly on something, you can charge what you want and people will be forced to pay it due to having no alternative.
Since sony made their own special memory card no one else can duplicate legally, they can price gouge

Does someone actually have REAL data on how much the production, licensing, and R&D cost for the Vita cards comparing to standards? How about profit margins?
Until then, I can't really blame people using the standard memory as a reference for pricing.
Fact still is that the pricing isn't helping the VITA reach more market. (but one could, I guess, say: that it's doing so indirectly by protecting the device from piracy.. and with VITA games pirated, the hardware will sell like hotcakes but the international dev interest would suddenly crawl).
Couldn't they just invest to better coding or internal hardware protection in the VITA itself? The 3DS games aren't hacked yet right?
"Suddenly"? Ummmm....yeah, about that.....
