1.0 out of 5 stars The speed does not support the overpriced card., February 22, 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: 32GB PlayStation Vita Memory Card (Video Game)
When I tested the 32gb vita memory card the speeds it was generating for reading was around 4mbps which is around a class 4 label in other SD/memory cards. The average price of a 32gb class 4 that I have seen is around 30-40 bucks. Therefore, I do not support this price gouging when they are forcing us to purchase proprietary memory cards. Really the 32gb should not have a price tag above 59.99.

Vita is reasonably priced but Sony dropped the ball with the memory card pricing. This is the biggest obstacle the Vita is facing right now and it is sad that it is entirely due to Sony's own bad decision.

Exactly. I'm tired of game companies trying to push us into these corners. Now no physical media is the new rage for them? We're being left with nothing. Physical copies means I can take my game over my buddy's house and show them why they need Marvel/Cap3...not instruct them to download the demo. This memory card/PSN virtual world stuff is crap. What if Sony's server crashes completely and all "virtual" records are lost? You think Sony's going to honor if you said you bought 10 Vita games? No...because they'd be afraid you'd say you bought 20. They'll cap what they give back...say maybe 3-5 and the idiot who DID buy 20 Vita games is screwed. Plus what if I sell my system? Think a Vita with 9 real games will fetch more than one with zero, but 9 virtual games you can't have because they're tied to my account lol. And this crap card is the vessel...don't support this. Sony is wrong here. They thought they could charge 600 for the PS3 and spent this whole cycle in dead last place. Don't sleep on the fact that Sony has already duped us all here....the Vita was supposed to actually have 16-40gb of FLASH memory before they decided it'd be bare bones. If we don't support these cards and start trading Vita's in...I bet you Sony would honor that. I thought Apple had the scumbag price inflator title on lock...but Sony is making their run at the roses.

"Never ceases to amaze me how cheap people are.

You do realize Sony is losing money hand over fist on every Vita sale right? Look it up."

LOL...have YOU actually looked it up? R&D/marketing costs aside, the Vita costs around $160 to manufacture. There is NO reason for this price gouging other than unabashed greed, stop being a sycophant.

Its been proven yet I see no links or actual facts. So unless you have any hard data you might as well troll somewhere else.

I posted a link to a gaming website that compared read/write speeds of vita cards. I think it's on page 2 of this review. I haven't recently looked to see if other websites have conducted something similar.
