1.0 out of 5 stars Very Nearly a Scam, March 4, 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: 32GB PlayStation Vita Memory Card (Video Game)
$250 for the Vita may seem reasonable for a new portable, but there are hidden costs if you actually want to use it the way they advertise to you. Recent benchmarks show that not only are these memory cards significantly slower in regards to data throughput and data writing, but they only perform better as you have the higher cards. Loading a level in Wipeout will take you nearly a minute, while having a larger card will only save you about 10 seconds. The standard SD cards that you can pick up anywhere, and the same ones that the 3DS use have a significant performance increase compared to this new format Sony devised for a profit. The worst part about this card is that it is completely required in order to use the Vita in the manner that Sony advertised to you in the very first place.

That ladies in gentleman, is shady business.

And where are you getting this information from? Sounds like a bunch of made up nonesense unless you want to provide a credible source for these 'studies'

Let me relax your day by providing the source of my rant, so you can go from TOOL to cool.

By the way, that took about 25 seconds to find after inititally hitting up google.com. Just an FYI.
