How big is the memory card that comes for the 3DS? Because Senran Kagura takes all the blocks of that alone. 1GB?


its not the same because the 3DS uses SD cards which is last century technology, that's why is cheaper.

lets put it in another words, I do agree that the ps vita memory cards should be the same as an SD card, I mean they do the same, store games and data files.

now lets compare on the automobile industry, my point of view is that a brand new Mercedes benz should cost the same as last century Toyota celica, I mean they both do the same job, taking me from point A to point B. im I right?

Japan is used to getting overcharged for everything electronic, and dont really spend much yen on other things regardless.

We get it, youre from Japan. We take you guys about as seriously as you guys take us.

Nah, probably even less than that.

I agree that some could be more reasonable, but they aren't really too bad after the 32GB card dropped to $80 officially. You have to keep in mind they are proprietary, which is always more expensive than the competition, but also the most reliable kind. If you find the prices any higher than these, they are a major rip-off:
4GB- 18
8GB- 25
16GB- $40
32GB- $80

They are also more expensive to make since they are so small. The smaller an electronic device is, the more expensive it is to make. The Memory cards are currently barely profitable, if profitable at all, as it is.

PSP memory card prices were outrageous when each new size first retailed so Sony wont learn their lesson unfortunately. For the PSP 2GB started at $60 and the 4GB was almost $200 when it first came out. Ridiculous, especially with how limited they are outside the device themselves.

This is GameFAQs. People here take great pride in ignoring common sense.

It's really the only gripe I have with the system. It's pretty outrageous.
