Uh oh, it seems that the PlayStation Vita may cost most people a tad bit more than they were expecting to shell out when it is released next year. Sure you may save $50 by avoiding the ridiculous 3G version and only pay $250 for your Vita, but that extra money you saved will likely have to be dropped on an expensive Sony brand memory card if you want to even play your games.
Famitsu reported in their weekly issue, that some games will not even start without a memory card inserted. Andriasang goes on to detail that a few of these titles are huge names, including what will likely be the most sought after title upon release, Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Famitsu even goes so far to say that the memory card is “pretty much a requirement” and without it, your Vita may be as useful as a paperweight with a few apps installed.
