US Amazon Stocks PS Vita 64 GB Memory Cards

Ready to move up to the next level of memory card for your Vita? Or are the prices driving you away? .......

Recently I became aware that the 64 GB Vita memory card were available through the Amazon storefront. I took a gander at the price and realized I hadn't really heard much word from the Vita community about the pricing on memory cards lately.

Roughly $117 for the card there. Considering the Borderlands 2 Vita Bundle is coming out in a few months for $200 that made me rethink the pricing scheme. Now, I upgraded to the 32 GB card a while back and was happy for the change. No longer needing to shuffle around games and such. And that was an $80 sigh I let out for that thing. 

Are people happy with the pricing scheme now? Did Sony throw out a bone with price drops and make people forget about how ridiculous the prices for memory cards are? 

Let us know below what you think of the memory card pricing. Do you have a 64 GB card? How did you buy yours?

They would get a lot more sales of memory cards if they lowered the price

I just recently got this 64GB card. It's awesome having all that space, but was a bit too expensive. Already filled it up the day I got it though. haha

What they also need to do is get rid of the 100 App Live Area Limit, it's retarded, you can have unlimited apps on an iPad, iPod, Samsung Galaxy, Windows Phone, Playstation Portable, and Playstation 3.

It's not hard to take 200kb of the memory card storage and get rid of this stupid restriction.

They also need to do something about Near, its such a useless feature on the handheld, I wish near was more like street plaza on the 3DS that way when I walk around with it I might actually tag and meet other vita owners.
P.S. The memory sticks are overpriced, all its going to do is make gamers ignore digital only vita games like the upcoming Hatsune Miku game.

it doesn't really make sense.

Near. I've never had anything work with this. I think on Smart As there are challenges, but no one else does them.
Yeah, Mem sticks really hurt the digital only games.

I've been on Amazon for the longest while now, and I already knew it was there from the beginning. I just didn't say ir mention anything about it. What I don't know, however, is that what if was imported from Japan or Europe, and If Sony themselves knew it was there and not anywhere else.

you think so?...

CrimsonCursed said...

you do know they fixed this by allowing you to group applications into 1 bubble.

Stop complaining and use the features that were given.
you can now have 99 bubbles with 10 bubbles inside a bubble.

Wow. I got my 64 gb card shipped to the us from japan a little before dec. Including s&h i think it came out to ~$109 Not happy about the price, but i didnt think it would be coming to the us anytime soon. Still glad i got it from jp though. Saved myself about $8 and I didnt have to wait! But the prices are ridiculous. I spent $50 on my 16gb card, which i traded my ipod touch for so i could actually play my vita, when a 16gb microsd probably costs no more than 30 right now. I could probably find a 64 gb micro sd for $50! Seriously, sony memory cards are a rip.

TheWizard said...

I agree. Isnt soul sacrifice supposed to use it? I have only ever recieved 1 gift from near and it was a pretty powerful fire sword but it only had 3 uses D: other than that, i havent gotten whispers or anything

Pretty sure that is one of the main reason why Vita struggles to sell, a lot of people are still complaining about the price of these cards, and it is justified, after you just buy a PS Vita system, you're most likely to buy a game and a memory card. The system end-up costing $400~ with taxes and all, almost the price of a current-gen console.

And which though I find that there's plenty of games to enjoy the console, it's true that the console could be more supported by third-party developers and even by Sony.

Binx08 said...

This is a kind of misleading topic because Amazon isnt the seller of those cards. It's all third parties that have imported it themselves from Japan. As a result the price also changes a lot. Just 2 days ago it was down to 109 but that seller only had a dozen sales overall. So... kind of a toss up if it's okay to buy or not.

This sucks , Amazon.com won't ship to Canada , and at Amazon.ca , all the cards are expensive as shit, plus importing fees, gah. Sony better release these cards to the US and Canada soon , or else !

osama bin laden said...

Just about to say that. Also you probably don't even play half of them. If it hasn't been opened in 2 months probably not gonna play it

osama bin laden said...

I don't even think sony is supporting it enough themselves. As a sony fan I would be satisfied myself, but they literally release like 3 first party games a year.

128gb micro SD just came out and will cost 20-200. And you can get a 64gb sdhc micro SD for 40$. Vitas memory card are extremely slow

the gamer said...

they def need to do some update on some of the apps: skype we need the option to message people cuz its annoying not being able to message through it, Near: its really useless at the moment they need to do something about it, and lastly is Music: we need the option to customize the playlist using the vita and give us the the folder option so its easier to transfer playlist. something needs to be done and some new features and apps are needed.

I knew getting into this scene that the memory cards were pricey and ii chose to go ahead and buy the vita.
Suck it up and pay it once, you wont regret it!
Cheers

ZERO_169 said...

but Vita cards are also the only thing you can play on Vita..... so the price and speed of micro SD cards doesn't really help in this situation

osama bin laden said...

My point is, these cards can't cost that much to make and sony is literally getting away with this. If people stopped buying Vitas and memory cards, then maybe they'll listen to us. I mean it worked with nintendo and the 3ds.
