    This has to be an error but Amazon honor what ever price you preorder at. I've just preordered 5 of these as word is the real price will be £44.99.

    The price has now been corrected to £39.99, everywhere else they are £44.99, like Tesco.
    I upped my order to 11 cards this morning before the change and have had a confirmation that I'll only pay £17.99 per card!
    Will keep 1 and sell 10 for £35-£40 and make a nice profit!

    Got a mail this morning saying they have cancelled my order due to listing the incorrect price... What happened to them honoring their mishaps?
    Was worth the punt but am still disappointed that they can do this :(

    Of course they can do it, they have the right to waive any order.

    I only ordered the one but after receiving my cancellation email today they can expect much correspondence from myself. I have already sent an email demanding my order be placed back and demanded that i get it at the price they promised. If i get no response i will send an email and then request them down the phone. You just have to be persuasive.

    Check out this deal http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/additions-direct-24-external-hdd-hard-586168?page=104. I managed to get 3 hard drives at £15 each, this was including there misprice AND a discount code for new customers. only took two phone calls. original price should have been £79 each. Crazy difference. i Ended up saving £192 on RRP lol

    Perhaps your shot yourself in the foot by ordering so many? Maybe if you'd just ordered one they'd have given it in good faith, but ordering 11 it's pretty clear you're gaming the system... no offence or anything.

    Pricey though, just got a 32GB mico SD for £30 from Amazon. I thought Sony were making progress when the Sony Ericsson phones started using SD. I wonder if someone will be able to make Vita to Micro SD adaptors.

    This will never happen look

    Thats roughly the size of the VIta game card and you can see the memory card is much smaller, if these images are in correct proportion then the Vita memory card and a micro sd are virtually the same size making it impossible to have an adapter.

    If however the Vita is hacked it would be possible to turn the gamecard into a single or possibly even dual micro SD adapter although you would have to re-write the firware to get it to recognise the cart as a memory card but its all possible.

    Here's hoping there's some kind solution. The over priced proprietary memory cards are the main things that put me off the Vita.

    Let me know how you get on, might try myself even for just one of them if you get a turn around.
