3.0 out of 5 stars Product great - but shady business practice, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony PlayStation Vita Memory Card 32GB Model (PlayStation Vita) (Accessory)
Now I'm a massive Sony fan and own all their consoles and handhelds (except for the awful PSP Go), but this proprietary memory card lark is getting OLD. There is absolutely no reason for it anymore. Sony charge outrageous amounts for the cards - I bought this for ~£40 but the original asking price was much higher.

The card itself is tiny. Why is this a problem? Well if you're like me then you'll want to install and download a lot of games. Let me tell you that the 32 GB fills up very quickly, even before you've put media such as music and videos on there. The solution would be to buy multiple memory cards (!!!) and switch them out. But being so tiny it's very easy to fumble and lose the card if you're out and about, so you'll either need a special case for them or just leave one in.

The thing is - if you want to do anything more than buy a couple of physical Vita games and install them, then you'll need the space. The other cards are far too small, and the larger ones are (in my opinion) too expensive (bringing the total cost of the Vita way over £200 before games). So you'll have to suck it up and buy this card, then try to drown out this experience with quality gaming sessions.
