Cheaper and Bigger PS Vita Memory Cards

Idea 74177 | Posted in , , by | June 20, 2014

Vita memory cards are too expensive. Vita has high attach rate, 64 gb is just not enough in the age of digital games.

I might prefer a PSVITA with 16/32 gb integrated Memory but i support this idea too

The PS Vita is a great system with a lot of potential. I, like many other people want to carry around my Vita filled with music, images and games, just like the days of the majorly successful PSP, but am unable to with expensive price on the proprietary memory card that exceeded the price of games to fill them with. What I, like ALL Vita owners desire is a cheaper price of the memory cards that is not absurd. One can purchase a memory card that is 32 GB for under $25 while the PS Vita proprietary memory card 32GB is $70. That price is unfair to gamers everywhere and the price of memory card for the Vita should drop to a reasonable price that matches the memory cards everyone can purchase.

Totally agree. Sony is still marketing PS Vita with last generations ideology. It’s 2014 already, Sony should catch up with the trend, let Vita do what it can do.

Extremely high memory card cost helped me decide not to purchase a Sony Vita. (Poor support for PSP helped this along too)

A 64 GB MicroSD is about $35.
For the same size on Vita is nearly $100.

Another Vita memory request? Looks like people want more room to feed money into PSN. Sony please make it happen. A 128GB card for $99.99 would be a huge boom for the Vita. Get the 64GB card out for the US at $59.99, and people may finally put down the pitch forks, and start realising this is the best mobile platform on the market.

this is a good suggestion…
this was one of the main reasons i got rid of my PSvita.
i had a 32GB and maxed it out in about a month… went to buy a 64GB and saw the price so said F that…
got into the whole deleting and reinstalling games thing and that just got annoying as F.
than about 4 months later i couldnt take it anymore cuz games i wanted to play i had deleted the week prior to make room for other stuff… so i just said F it and traded it in to gamestop for like 20 bucks… not really that low, but practically, gamestops such a rip off.

This console isn’t even supported anymore Sony, you really should treat the people who bought this better and bring down the prices of the storage now. I am, again, running our of space to download and I don’t relish the purchase of another card again.

Make this happen or give other organisations the right to manufacture cards that we can afford to purchase.

It is too expensive thab others flash memory. For an hardware not support enouth by Sony Games, essential PSN games, 8Go are too short.
64Go for 30$ / € like more good, no 80$ OR 90$

I love the Vita, but I have a really hard time recommending it to others because of the memory cards. People are no longer unwilling to shell out $200 for a great handheld, but the cards really are a dealbreaker. And long-term fans are effectively punished for supporting the console, by being forced to pay an arm and a leg for the privilege of storing all the games they’ve bought. There’s a vicious cycle going on for the Vita, but a memory card price cut could help push it out of its rut.

Come on PlayStation Team, deliver the goods. What kind of world are we in where a useless smartphone with little 20MB apps can have 100GB+ storage, but a industry redefining gaming phone with 4GB games only has 64GB.

E3 was a let down, but with the way Vita is selling in the US I get it. Here’s hoping TGS brings some awesome news. A Vita 3000, 4G LTE, bigger Memory cards (128GB & 256GB), more RAM (2GB system RAM), and a bigger battery could turn this into the next evolution in mobile devices.

I’m thinking Sony should drop the lower end capacity memory cards, to cut down on inventory and overhead, and just focus on 32GB and 64GB cards and price them much more “competitively”. Also, may as well work on getting out a 128GB card to the masses. We need more space, please!

I’m on board with this wholeheartedly, but unless you spend several hundreds/thousands of dollars on games, 64 GB is pretty good space.

They do need the lower the price, no ones paying $20 for a 4gb memory card, how dumb can Sony be?


LordDust  |  March 13th, 2016 at 2:12 pm

Yeah PS Vita Memory cards are to expensive I wish they went with SD Cards the Vita Memory Cards are a big turn off for potential Vita owners just drop the price

Thanks for brightening my day with that joke about Vita having a high attach rate.
