That doesn't explain the outrageous prices.
That is self explained. Money.
Why do I think this will have the opposite effect?
Actually it does exactly just that if nothing else.
They have a monopoly of their memory format, so.......
Because it will
Another reason why im not getting PSV for launch.
Commence invasion of Sony bloatware. Nice try Sony. No thanks.
this just in
" a special content management program" was released to transfer and organize file on the Vita
Just like Apple but people put up with that.
Edit: As long as it doesn't use Media Go and doesn't require Quicktime and other various shit to install, I'm okay with it.

SOOO inclined to agree w/ KingVamp. The price of real MSPro's kept me off the PSP for a long time. It wasn't until I found DX style sites and cheap Chinese knock offs or Photofast adapters that I was willing to get one. The prices on those cards are just fucking absurd... And I'm reasonably certain that should I get a Vita I'll be needing a fat one. I could afford it, but that doesn't mean I'm going to pay it. I'll probably end up doing what I did w/ my first PSP, waiting till I find some dumb ass who bought one as a status symbol and a fat stick looking to sell their very expensive paperweight on Craig's List or eBay.
And to think we get to pay these over inflated prices to "insure" that we can't pirate on the Vita? I'M SOLD!!!!
Your absolutely right prowler, my post seemed a little dramatic haha
It can be frustrating to see more security measures that change/alter services because of previous quarrels in the past. I think this a small price everyone has to pay.
Something tells me people will figure out a way of reading the files on the format. Its a smart way of doing it but also an incredibly dumb way of doing it. No video player (unless you buy from a store on the Vita) and no music player. Admittedly I doubt many people use those functions on a PSP (well, it does make a nice video player given its screen size) but its now something the Vita can't do.
It does have a music and video player.
Um, it's called a USB cable?
I was under the impression that you could transfer data to the memory card via a USB cable. So in the end this does nothing.
So... When vita gets hacked what will be the "official" excuse for the overpriced sd cards?
None, because everyone will be using a 3rd party thats cheaper or a 3rd party alternate that converts it or something similiar.
If the launch list of games wasn't enough to make me wait to get a PS Vita, the expensive memory will. Seriously sony, ANOTHER memory format. 3DS/DSi has done fine getting rid of piracy so far with main stream formats. Now you'll instead lose money because people won't buy the already overpriced memory and system instead of losing money to piracy.
I'm sorry if I'm misinterpreting you, but I assume you're saying that owners won't be able to transfer content, unless they're protected content downloaded from some kind of Sony service? I believe the program is supposed to handle the transfer of your converted/pirated videos and music (just like iTunes doesn't require the files to be downloaded from the iTunes store), instead of giving the freedom to use the built-in file management program (i.e. windows explorer and w/e the mac one is called). And I doubt they're going to make an online service for videos/music, just for the Vita. That'd be stupid, really.
tl;dr you can transfer your own content, but you just have to transfer it through the 'special program.'
"Small price everyone has to pay", even though most psp owners weren't pirates? Anyways, I'm a pirate, so I guess I have no say on this.
I'm not sure if I get your point, but oh well: yeah, the transfer is supposed to be through USB. Instead of allowing users to use the explorer to create new directories and drag/drop exploits/hacks and unofficial files (like the psp), owners will be required to use the program (which will most likely deny files that do not constitute with what it is supposed to allow through) to be sent into the ms. Basically, it gives less control to the owner than the psp gave, so I don't see how it does nothing in the end. It'd be easier for me to understand if you could clarify on what you mean. >_>
