LittleBigPlanet Vita News for PS Vita

On: PS Vita
lbpvita -

As part of its announcement of a Japanese release date - December 17 - for the PlayStation Vita, Sony also announced the pricing of its proprietary PlayStation Vita memory cards.

Sony will release four sizes of memory card alongside the console, coming in at 4, 8, 16, and 32GB variants. Third-parties will likely develop their own cards, but these have not yet been announced.

Sony's pricing is in Yen, with the 4GB coming in at ¥2,200 (£18), the 8GB at ¥3,200 (£26), 16GB at ¥5,500 (£45), and finally the 32GB at ¥9,500 (£78).

Historically, proprietary memory cards - such as the MemoryStick Pro Duo, which the original PSP used - have started out expensive and promptly dropped in price after launch.

UK prices have yet to be announced.

£78 for the 32GB? I could go out and buy an SD card for less than half that amount today, maybe even cheaper by the time this is released in the UK with the inevitable RRP hike that everything gets just for being on sale legally on these shores. I predict £99 RRP.

Good old Sony. You can always rely on them milking the moronic brand loyalty they have somehow inspired in their rabid fanbase. And, you can always count on said rabid fanboys being happy to pay for proprietary formats that simply aren't needed when industry standards already exist. (And, before some halfwit comes on in and tells me off because Microsoft do the same, save your breath. I KNOW MS do the same!)

Other than personal media storage, do we know what the cards are required for?

I'm presuming PSN games and save data. Anything else anybody knows of? I'm just thinking that 32gb is a HUGE amount of data. I already own an iPad which would store my films and music. For me the Vita will solely be a games machine. So, I'm thinking a 8gb, maybe a 16gb, would suit me fine.
