From G4’s website:
Vita memory cards will come in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB flavors (to start with, that is), and they’re priced at $29.99, $44.99, $69.99 and $119.99, respectively.
Sony, you’re telling me your new handheld has a magical battery life of 3-6 hours… AND you’re making proprietary memory that costs almost FIVE times the cost of a regular SD card? And somehow you actually want me to WANT one of these?
Once again, I have called it. Since day ONE. The PlayStation Vita will be a colossal failure of epic proportions! I have no idea who’s calling the shots over on the Vita team, but didn’t they learn proprietary is BAD (let’s all recall how stupid UMD was for a moment) and think, “Maybe this will piss people off, making them pay THIRTY DOLLARS FOR A 4GB MEMORY CARD”?!
What a joke. Good luck with that, Sony. You’re gonna need it.
