Some first-party Playstation Vita videogames have gone on sale for less than $10. Also discounted are the 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB Vita Memory Cards.
This isn't anything new. Not sure about amazong but Target, Walmart, and Best Buy have had everything Vita related minus the systems in the clearance section for months. Same with the PlayStation Move, got the camera, 2 controllers, 2 nav controllers, the gun, and Sorcery for 50 bucks total.
I wish. I saw a ton of Vita games at my Target thinking they were in some kind of clearance section, but they were still priced at full retail. Thought I found a bargain, but it wasn't meant to be.
Target has a weird clearance system. They start by barely taking anything off then slowly reduce prices over time. I Dont like it but if you wait it out you can get a lot for good prices.
imo the price of memory cards is what killed the vita.. you should not be in a position of not buying a game because you need a new memory card that costs the same or more than a game..
Agreed. The ridiculous pricing of those memorycards was one of the main reasons that kept me from buying a Vita for a long long time, and now that I finally bought a Vita, my 8GB memorycard is full with games, so I can't be bothered even considering buying a new game, cause then I'll have to remove games and saves from my memorycard, or buy a new one, which I don't want, because of those high prices.
Yeah, that really hurt me in the beginning. I understand why they locked the mem. cards but at those high prices it negates the decision to look out for customer best interest. I love my vita, I love my digital titles, but sheesh that 100$ for my 64gb Japanese memory card hurt. I had to choose between that or ps tv and seeing that I bought a VITA for handheld experience I figured i'd do just that until it dies 10-15 years from now.
Seriously. Look at the cards here, "on sale" yet still pushing 100 dollars? Come on now. Got the same size card for my camera for 10 bucks, got a micro version for my phone for 25 bucks..... Even "HD" cards don't cost this much. When people say Sony is ignoring the Vita, it isn't just conferences, it's dumb mistakes like this that never got fixed.
It's funny. Some of the 64GB cards are going for $65 on Amazon, but then they turn around and ask $30 shipping! You really are better off importing a 64GB card anyway though (stay away from those shipping gougers) as the 64GB is $10-20 over local retail's 32GB cards usually ($99 MSRP - Amazon is selling them at around $65 though...for now) and you are getting double the space for far less than double the price -- it's a no brainer. I got my 64GB for around $100 after shipping from Japan - qualified for Prime - and got the card in 2 days (this was MONTHS ago BTW).
Same here proud amazon prime subscriber. I got mine around the same time as well around E3(ish).
Why won't they reduce the memory card prices already?!
Because Sony wants the Vita dead.
good the memory cards are too expensive.
those prices for memory cards are still exorbitant! They need to be at least 50/70 % off. The Vita's sales are failing and there's gotta be an overstock of memory cards...sell them for cheap and they'll probably see a surge in digital purchases.
We get it.. Why doesn't Sony?
