Not really feeling it for those price drops.

Edit:
Not trying to diss it, just still, just not having " the feels".

Thatguy-310984d ago

if it were to be a dramatic price drop hey would have announced the prices. So not surprised.

soljah984d ago (Edited 984d ago )

these are not the price drop pricing.
this has been amazons discounted prices for a while on memory cards

Salooh984d ago

Fake, move on or i will shoot..

MusicComposer984d ago

According to the price history on Amazon these cards have already been around this price or even a little cheaper. This is good news though because that means Amazon will, at times, have them even more affordable.

As a side note, I don't think Amazon has updated their prices yet. They have the 16GB at around $45 and it's supposed to be $40. The one currently available right now is from a 3rd party seller.

Real price drops:
http://blog.us.playstation....
Sony lists the 8GB for $19 not $23 like Amazon did.

Also PS Vita is now $199.

Donnieboi984d ago

I just wish they would make a 64 Gig card. I keep having to delete games for the new PS plus one's. But the price of it would be way too ridiculous probably.

SilentNegotiator984d ago (Edited 984d ago )

Uhhh, why is the much more important Vita price drop not a story on the front page?

I mean, a small price drop on memory cards is nice, but still.

EeJLP-984d ago

These memory card prices (along with no physical L2, R2, L3, and R3... and few good games or gimmicky controls within the games) are keeping me from buying a Vita.

Right now I'm only considering one to remove (hide) trophies from PS3 games I tried and didn't like or got added unexpectedly to my trophy list...

(Currently playing Fallout 3 GotY edition)

And for PS4 remote play, but that's where the physical L2, R2, L3, and R3 come into play.

The Vita should have at least 16GB built in and the memory cards shouldn't be ~4x the price of an Ultra speed microSD card. I bought a 64GB ultra microSD for ~$40 1 1/2 years ago for my EVO LTE and they want $80 still for a 32GB card..

ThanatosDMC983d ago

I want a 64gb or higher all ready. My 32gb is always full and i dont want to change cards because it ruins my tab settings.

A price drop is a price drop. Be happy.

Legion21984d ago

$20.00 to $19.99 is technically a price drop as well. Even with the price drop those are still hefty prices to pay for a memory card.

SilentNegotiator984d ago

The 32GB card is still $80.

That's still ridiculous.

theEx1Le983d ago

Be happy? These prices are still a complete rip off.

ABizzel1984d ago (Edited 984d ago )

It should be:

$20 - 8GB
$35 - 16GB
$60 - 32GB
$100 - 64GB
$150 - 128GB

Those are still overpriced when you consider microSD cards are $20 for 32GB, $50 for 64GB, and $100 for 128GB.

They need to come with a Vita remodel for E3 2014, with 16GB or 32GB of internal memory , because my 32GB is already full thanks to downloads and PS+.

sunnygrg984d ago

Sony needs to hire you as their VP, Makes Sense Department, second only to me, the President of Sony, Makes Sense Department.

ABizzel1984d ago

@sunnygrg

If only.....if only :D

dredgewalker984d ago

Can I be the secretary of the Makes Sense Department?

jujubee88984d ago

I'm buying the 16GB card. The 32GB still costs and arm and a leg.

harrisk954984d ago

Are these just "normal" Amazon discounts (almost everything is cheaper on Amazon!), or is Dualshockers jumping the gun... what does Gamestop, Target, Best Buy and Walmart show??

FamilyGuy984d ago

Official numbers:

Memory Card for PS Vita 4GB
From $19.99 to $14.99

Memory Card for PS Vita 8GB
From $29.99 to $19.99

Memory Card for PS Vita 16GB
From $59.99 to $39.99

Memory Card for PS Vita 32GB
From $99.99 to $79.99

8Gig seems very reasonable as a starting out card that doesn't hit your wallet too hard.

Godmars290984d ago

They might be losing money with price cuts. Profits at least.

ColeMacGrath984d ago

4GB cards should be $10 not $15, as 2 of them cost more than an 8GB card, just saying..

FamilyGuy984d ago

That's because they don't waaant you to buy the 4Gig card. They want people to buy the most expensive one as it nets them the most profit.

kparks984d ago

Lol ive been looking at buying for vita for weeks now and thats been amazon's prices on cards for like 3-4 weeks atleast

JohnS1313984d ago

It's better than nothing. It's $20 off the 32GB card.

Knushwood Butt984d ago

Why no 64GB card??

Oh well, 20% off the 32GB is a lot better than nothing.

The_Sneauxman984d ago

"The feels" are everything bruh

3-4-5984d ago

for $200, I kind of really want one now. There are a few games I think are alright but Vita is going to be getting good games soon enough.

I'd say there are about 4-5 games I'd play, I'm hoping to see another RPG and maybe another sly cooper type game or something like that.

It's actually somewhat affordable now to buy a Vita+Memory card + Games

ritsuka666984d ago

The fact that Sony hit the ball out of the park so many times over the conference and absolutely dropped the ball on this one.It's still ridiculous and saddening this prices..

FragmentsOfHope983d ago

I agree...I was hoping it would have been a little more of a drop. Though, I am liking the 16GB price.

Bobby Kotex983d ago

I would never buy a vita due to these stupid memory stick prices.

Dan_scruggs983d ago

I can get a 500 gig external hard drive for what one of these memory cards would cost. Screw that.

taz8080984d ago

Its a good start but honestly I would have loved for them to scrap cards and say they were free. #dreaming

Nicaragua984d ago

that's not the stupidest thing i have ever heard...oh wait, actually it is.

taz8080984d ago

that's why I said it was a dream. They will want to make money of course, they are a business. I just dislike the system being kind of useless without a memory card and then having to pay for it.

hellvaguy983d ago

@taz

You could try testing theory: Poop in 1 hand and then dream on the other to see which fills up faster. Man I love that saying, lol.

ParaDise_LosT983d ago

It's real funny
Nintendo cracks down on pirates on SD cards because they use default cheap and easy SD cards

People go nuts about how bad a company nintendo is

Sony charges the CONSUMERS for it's own anti piracy attempt and people defend it.

quite amazing really

cunnilumpkin984d ago

the need o make a new vita, that is $179, comes with 50gb onboard memory and 3 months of psn plus

then it starts to become an attractive purchase

solidjun5984d ago

you're just trolling like you did in the killzone article. It's 199 now. I bet if it were $179, you would somehow say "They need to make a new vita that's $150 with 5 free games." You're never going to purchase the system.

"I can emulate that on pc in native 1920x1080 for free legally because I own the original"

Wintersun616984d ago

So Uncharted: Golden Abyss, LBP Vita, Gravity Rush, Guacamelee! aren't even worth a crap? Why on earth are you here in the first place if you don't give a crap about games???

solidjun5984d ago (Edited 984d ago )

ooo "moron." The troll have nothing better to say.
Also troll, since you can emulate that on the PC, i'm sure you can emulate every game on the Vita. Also can you bring your PC on the road holding comfortably while playing? Yea... you're just trolling.

kparks984d ago

199 for the walking dead bundle.. Thats a pretty good price to me

strigoi814984d ago

stop the BS even a cellphone cant have GB's like that on a $200...

BlaqMagiq24983d ago

Now that's straight up dumb. That would cause a loss not a profit. Use your head.

MASTER_RAIDEN984d ago (Edited 984d ago )

still pretty ridiculous tbh. Just happy the vitas had a price drop. definitely thinking about picking one up now.

thebigman984d ago

This could just be a reactionary price cut. If Sony is releasing new memory SKUs Amazon will need to clear stock while they can.
