PS Vita Memory Cards Officially Priced for US

There’s been a bit of an uproar over the prices for PS Vita Memory Cards that GameStop outed last month. Thankfully, SCEA has finally stepped in to calm the storm. Word from hardware marketing director John Koller indicates that the prices are much more reasonable than we were originally led to believe.

As with the Japanese launch, these cards will come in variants from 4GB to 32GB. Here’s the breakdown:

4 GB Memory Card – $19.99
8 GB Memory Card – $29.99
16 GB Memory Card – $59.99
32 GB Memory Card – $99.99

While still not as cheap as SD equivalents, these prices are far more manageable to say the least. All Memory Cards are due to hit the states on February 15, just in time for when the First Edition bundle hits shelves.

Have they gave any indication on how big save games, dlc, etc would be?

Based on these prices, think I'll get either the 8 or 16gb

@Robby - If you're considering downloading full-blown titles... I'd suggest as large as you can get. Uncharted is said to be around 4gb. That's half your damn card if you've only got 8gb :S

The thing is though, you don't need more than one game at a time. Especially when you can save these things locally on your PS3.
