Need more storage for all of those Vita games? Sony will begin selling a 64GB PlayStation Vita memory card on October 10. Currently, the largest PS Vita memory card is 32 GB.
The memory card will cost 10,479 yen ($105) in Japan.
Sony…dat price O.O You gotta bring that price waaaaaaayyyyy down Sony
im with you! :P
$105 isn’t too bad considering the 32gb’s were around that price (At least for Australia they were) I’ll be buying one when I get the chance. :)
to rich for my blood but at least sony finally brought the 64gb out.
If anything you should of made the Vita compatible with regular micro SD cards.. would be 50% cheaper for us -_-
Trying to avoid the piracy-ridden PSP fiasco with the Vita.
I’m all up for preventing piracy, always have and hopefully always will be, but it annoys me the way it ends up making us pay more than we should.
I agree with you. Since Sony has (e)limi(na)ted our choice of memory cards to a proprietary one, they should be more reasonably priced to help pull in more customers and make the digital embrace a more friendly one, too.
Depends on how much it costs sony to make these things. They are essentially new hardware Sony had to make just for the Vita.
It’s no excuse when the 3DS uses micro sd cards and still hasn’t been fully hacked, yet.
“Fully”.. Seems they’re getting there.
BUT, it could be that there’s just more interested hackers on the 3DS than having a non proprietary memory compatibility.
We will never certainly know.
And then you realize that Sony’s always been proprietary with their memory. Not just in consoles, either. Anything Sony-branded in this era relies on some sort of proprietary memory. Sony cameras relied on Memory Sticks just as the PSP did.
It isn’t a matter of piracy; it’s a decision Sony made for their entire line of products. Not just the Vita or PSP.
The memory stick duo for psp was simply a different format and as such
you could buy a third party adapter sleeve. Mine was ~$8 and let me use
micro sd cards in my psp. The vita, however, has some kind of
battery/software on the memory cards themselves, like the 3ds
cartridges, that is creating a hurdle for just making an adapter.
Nice! What’s the pri—
*sees $105 equating to roughly £67*
SERIOUSLY SONY! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
So many tables being flipped…
Unfortunately this actually their best priced memory card(on a GB to $ scale). Compare to the 32GB which is half the storage but only $20 less.
It will probably cost less in america…not much less, but a more balanced $99.99.
That’s still too much.
…… O_O 65 gb……. are a bit late….. T_T
So expensive.T_T With that amount of money, in my country i am more or less going to be able to feed myself for a month.O_o
Guess when I get a 64GB for my Vita, I can use my current 32GB for a Vita TV when I get one.
I’m still using the 4GB memory card I got from the start.
8GB are $20 now bro…
So it’ll be $80 then.
Bout damn time.
Ouch. Sad thing is, I’ll probably get one… 32Gb just ain’t enough.
Really? I was thinking of just getting myself an 8gb.
Well I have PS1, PSP and Vita games tied to my PSN account, so I run out of space pretty fast :/
Vita, I want to love you but those memory card prices man…
That price is a little much.
I could buy that Vita TV for this price.
I have a 32GB memory card in my PS Vita currently. Would there be a way for me to transfer the content in my existing card over to a new one?
If you have a PC then you can back it up with Content Manager Assistan from there once you connect to your Vita just click the Vita to PC and then upload/back up your data. Same if you have a PS3. if not then just re-download everything again from the PSN
About time. Been waiting for them to announce a 64GB card for basically forever.
Better give us a 128Gb memory card…
Seeing as how the biggest games are usually 3-3.5 GB I’m not sure if I can even fill this thing but I’ll probably wait for a price drop or deal somewhere and pick it up in the future. Better to have too much memory than too little.
I was a little distracted but I read the title as “PlayStation Vita 64 GB Coming In October, Costs $105″ at first… >_> It costs over a $100 for Japan to get 64 GB of storage for a Vita, I don’t want to think about European prices or importing one of these (the jack up would be huge, regardless of how cheap and simple shipping small items would be).
How much will it cost?
*Browse through news* Oh cool! A new memory card is being released! :D
*Looks through article and looks at price*
MOTHERFU-! (my real reaction)
thank you sony, its all i have been asking for since i bought my 32 gb card at launch. will trade memory card for this updated one, real question is, will i have the ability to have more then a 100 bubbles? i have like 18 gb in psp games alone.
Price cut vita is $199.99…
if you purchase this memory card you will pay $299,99
is this a coincidence or was it all planned? price cut my ass
I can buy like two hard drives with much more memory than that piece of hard paper.
…Not funny Sony.
