    PlayStation Vita Launch Lineup and Details – PlayStation Blog

    Interesting as well is that the memory cards are cheaper then initially expected they're now $99 as opposed to $120 (for the 32gb).

    Also the release date for most of the shit has been brought forward to feb 15th, but the vita will still release on 22nd. That's to do with the first edition packs though.

    Wonder when SCEE are going to release some info...

    I'm sure many of those who were angry at the memory card prices will be happy now.

    Depends how you look at it. For shoppers that go on Ebay and Amazon, then yes its still overpriced. But for people that actually buy their stuff from retail stores(depends on store), it's around the same price. So this is going to lead me to believe that shortly after the release and when 3rd party people get ahold of it. We'll see the usual SD, Micro SD price were used to on Amazon and Ebay.

    As for the line up, pretty nice for starters.

    Also for people who want a comparison of why it's overpriced:

    SD Card prices:


    4 GB SD Card : $4.99
    8 GB SD Card: $10.85
    16 GB SD Card: $16.50
    32 GB SD Card: $37.04


    not to mention these are used by the 3DS as a memory card

    The memory card prices are still too high, if they were about half of what they list there It'd be in an arena I consider reasonable.

    Atleast I know there will be some good games well worth picking up launch day...

    UC: Golden Abyss and Super Stardust Delta will be day-1s for me. I'll probably get Rayman and Ninja Gaiden Sigma as well.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    I agree that it's still too overpriced. Well, hopefully by time I consider picking up a Vita there will be more options around that doesn't mean forking over $100 for a 32GB card. Guess it's still better than $120

    Well while I understand your sentiment about saying they're still overpriced....still I think it's one thing people keep forgetting: THIS IS NEW TECH. That's the way it's always been in the tech world--whether you're talking about computing or gaming. You make a comparison w/ SD cards but lest we not forget there was a time when SD cards weren't cheap either.

    Sure the prices could always stand to go down, but that will happen in time (as the 'new' becomes 'old'). But for right now, at least they're fairly decent compared to what our fellow Japanese gamers probably had to pay.

    Basically that's exactly what I play to do, too. 8gb should be a fairly decent size to start off w/ and that should do me fine for a while. I have no qualms about 'shopping around' and I'm pretty sure that between Ebay or Amazon I'll find the right price-point I"m willing to pay.

    Doesn't change the fact that the products are overpriced on this side of the pond too.

    You have no problem spending 600$ on a PSVita and games, but yet you're complaining about doing so?

    Well, it's not like you are required to buy it. Youo can always chose to not do so and vote with your wallet.
