The Tokyo Game Show is well underway and therein Sony revealed the PS Vita’s release date, memory card pricing and battery life.

While the battery life (issue?) is making it’s rounds around the net, pricing for the Vita’s memory cards have struck a chord.  While pictures showed a variation on the SD card design, there hasn’t been any concrete info saying one way or the other.

So I took the initiative and reached out to Jeff Rubenstein and Sid Shuman to see if either could sort out the question.

 

So there you have it.  Be prepared to spend a bit more than standard Class 10 SD cards (listed below).  I suppose it’s a necessary precaution to ensure people are only using the speediest cards available.  That said, my pre-order still remains open on Amazon.

 

  • Memory card 4GB – ¥2,200 ($28)
  • Memory card 8GB – ¥3,200 ($41)
  • Memory card 16GB – ¥5,500 ($71)
  • Memory card 32GB – ¥9,500 ($123)
