While I agree the PS Vita memory pricing is insane and a stupid move on Sony's part, I find it hilarious that many of those in the gaming and tech press who are up in arms about this happily pay $100 to add 16GB of memory to their iOS devices. At least the Sony cards will eventually get cheaper third party versions but iOS device memory is not upgradeable or replaceable but apparently paying insanely high markup on that is just fine. The layer of Apple double-standards is thick on that.

The article missed out on an important bit of news that was revealed yesterday... the Vita will be region locked for all practical purposes. It will only allow one PSN account to link to it (unless you do a factory reset) so you can only every buy content for and from that one region to which your PSN account is registered.

Yup, proprietary memory cards. Not much to complain about, however. Xbox 360 went the same route with hard drives. Guess who makes my 360 HDD? Sure as fuck not Microsoft. Someone will be along with cheap 3rd party memory cards soon enough.

Oh no, only 720p? It's a tiny screen with no video out. Not really an issue.

I honestly think people are just "discovering" things that they bill as bad because they have nothing else to publish about the Vita right now.

$120 for a 32GB card is insane and retarded.

Yes, just as the 360 HDD was priced way above HDDs of comparable size. Someone will make cheaper ones. It's not a surprise, as companies have been making proprietary memory for consoles and handhelds since the late 80s.

Also depends a bit on the speeds of the cards. Comparing them to Class 2 microSD cards is just disingenuous, and it's one of the reasons why Sony doesn't want people using microSD cards.

Still, even assuming these are very high speed cards (i.e. equivalent of Class 15-20), I can't see how these should be priced more than about $2-2.50/GB apart from some other considerations that we don't know of yet.
