    It's still overpriced whether it's 30 or 25.

    Good news, but still WAY overpriced, it still strikes me as Sony ripping more money from their customers. The only reason it wouldn't be a "hidden cost", as they worded it, is if they were the same price as SD cards, the Vita accepted SD cards, or if they weren't required for ANY Vita game. None of those 3 are true. Sony is still ripping us off.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. $40.00 will get me a 32gb micro sd card.

    Well if the pricing is still anywhere near as close, the biggest i'll be using for a while is the 4 Gig that comes with the First Launch bundle

    Would you rather have the original price? It's still 5 dollars less; take what you can get.

    At this rate, Sony could announce that they're giving away eternal youth with each Vita sold and people would still complain that they're being ripped off.

    They weren't bad to begin with.
    No real need to drop the price.

    My problem with this is that the Vita cards look like very slightly modified M2 cards. And when the 16GB M2 (which I can use as storage for my PSP or as a spare memory card for either of my laptops with a MS adapter, or any PC with a USB adapter) is half the price of a Vita memory card (which given Sony's statements so far can be used in and with the Vita exclusively) with half the memory, it ought to be pretty obvious that something's wrong. I won't be buying until the price of these cards is only slightly higher than the M2 card of the same capacity.

    ITT: "HAI GAIZ WHY NO SSD SAME AS HDD PRICING LOL? I HAZ 5000GB HDDS FOR PRICE OF 500 GB HDD LOL! THEY ARE CHEAPOS!" Replace SSD with PSV memory cards and HDD with MicroSD..

    OT: Seriously. What do you expect from a new memory card? Look at prices from older formats and you will see that they cost a hell of a lot of money in the beginning, but become cheaper on the long run (volume, volume, volume. That makes a difference)..

    Marvelous analysis there old boy. It provided an insightful unique idea on propriety memory cards and their pricing. I must say your analytic talents are wasted on this forum.

    If Sony doesn't go the bullshit $39.99 = £39.99 way for the 8GB card, £25 isn't that bad.
