Sony Speaks About Those High Memory Card Prices

Sony PS Vita News

There has been an uproar about the high costs of the Playstation Vita memory cards that were revealed by Gamestop recently. With the 32GB stick going for the ridiculous price of US$120, Sony has to go on the defensive. So, why are consumers going to pay for higher memory stick prices compared to other cards on teh markets? Sony puts it to two things: equality for all Vita owners and security against piracy.

With the first point, Sony’s Division 2 Software development head Muneki Shimada told Impress Watch that they wanted to have an even playing field for all of potential Vita owners. He assures that these are high quality cards with fast read times. His second point echos piracy concerns. He has a right to be concerned too, as the Playstation Portable was a prime target for piracy.

These are the costs of the Playstation Vita memory cards:
4GB – $29.99
8GB – $44.99
16GB – $69.99
32GB – $119.99

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
