I've had a 32 GB that I've used since I got my 119 cowboom vita from early last years slick deal. college student with 13 to 15 credits a semester and a ten to twenty hour a week workstudy. so I've got a bit of spare time.. I can't imagine who, aside from maybe a high schooler with no job and only doing the bare minimum workload could possibly utilize even 32gb. but of course that's just me.. all the power to you guys that want insane amounts of storage :p
I keep thinking I need a big memory card like the 32 or 64, but then I remember I do the exact same thing you do and realize 8 is plenty.
Yea Sony is a slippery bastard. They expect everyone to go digital have a cheep system, I payed day one for a 32 GB for 100. Kinda screws it but I will probably still get one. Switching cards is a pain
Completely agree with all of you guys who hate Sony's price gouging on these cards. There is no question they did this for profitability.
No, they did this because their "fans" completely decimated the PSP market with piracy. The open memory cards on the PSP were the beginning of the end.
With the extra security in the proprietary Vita cards there have been zero Vita cracks that have stuck to date. That's a win for Sony and a win for gamers who want to see more product on the system and not have it become a ghost town like the PSP. Publishers abandoned PSP like crazy because their titles were massively pirated on day one or before.
Yeah, the pricing sucks, but having too many games to fit in one relatively large 32gb memory card, making you want two or three cards or one even giant-er card, is a first-world "problem."
You guys can TC on this all you want, but the price of oil sucks too, and if I found a place that could save you 20% on gas but was still ridiculously expensive, you would be foolish to crap on that thread and this is really no different. Either way, I invite you to crap all over this thread -- I honestly don't care. I didn't post this thread for kudos or thumbs up or any of that social internets E-points. I posted it because I found something that is lower priced than usual and I wanted to point it out for anyone else who has wanted this card but didn't want to order it from Japan or pay $130-140 to get it from a US seller.
I am NOT supporting Sony's price gouging by buying this card any more than I did when I purchased the Vita in the first place. Once you buy in with the Vita, it's only a matter of time til you are going to need memory. I hate the pricing, but unfortunately I don't hate it enough to make a stand with my wallet.
To the guy who says "you couldn't fill a 64GB card" and "I only see 10 'must have' games"... you are answering your own problem...
A) The goal isn't to fill a 64GB card, it's to have all of your games on one card, so realistically the problem is when you have enough to fill a 32GB card, not a 64GB card.
B) As stated before, the average game (especially amongst those 'must have' titles that aren't just 500MB indie games) is 3-4GB. So if you see 10 games out there, that's 30-40GB, not counting game saves. The "32GB" card has 29GB of usable space, so I hope you can already see the problem here.
Yes. The Vita cards aren't just memory, but memory with a encrypted security layer. They did this because of the PSP piracy fiasco. And, it's worked. No viable Vita crack so far.
First off even if they did do it for security it wouldn't need to be $80 more for the same capacity card. Second Sony has always tried proprietary storage since they lost in the beta vs. Vhs. Just like with blu-ray if they could get a format to take to the market they kill on licensing fees. Third hacking is about getting certain instruction sets to the CPU, you can still get instructions to the CPU with the Vita memory cards.
The Vita hasn't been hacked because people haven't figured out the security keys and people haven't found any security exploits.
