Or maybe they can't find a way to implement larger size storage. There are 64GB memory pro duos, but you cannot use them in the PSP.

And seeing as downloaded games are cheaper than the retail (as was pointed out in some other thread), I don't think they are not pushing downloading.

I was getting a 16gb version in the first place anyway but I was thinking that I could do at a later date but since I can't I'll have to buy it at launch. reason: I plan to buy some digital but mostly physical copies of the games. I have a 8gb stick on my psp and I have 6 digital titles (mostly have low gb storage my highest gb storage is probably GTA:Liberity City Stories) some video (whose line is it anyway clips and some trailers) and a good chunk of music. It also looks like I have to buy a new usb which also sucks.  So Vita accessories that I'm looking into for the future or at launch is the 16gb card, the USB port, and the starter kit I don't know if I want that at launch but I think a later date. ugh my wallet hates me.

These prices are outrageous! A 32GB SDHC card sells for around $30-35; a 400% markup is unconscionable. I am honestly shocked at how calm people are being about this on here. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that you should be foaming at the mouth and spewing obscenities, but does no one really feel as strongly as I do? This seems almost criminal.

Defy convention. Defy rules. Defy math... Negative Zero.

You, sir, are lucky.

I could do the same, but I can't. :/

I am mad, there is no argument with that. I am trying to justify it, however. There is more money put into the handheld than they are charging, it has to be made up somewhere. I understand that games are where that profit is suppose to be made, but being competitively priced with the 3DS in terms of games, markup might be needed elsewhere.

BTW, trying was the word to hear, that doesn't mean I am taking it likely.

Especially since 32GB would actually only have 29-30 GB available for actual storage.

Once the Vita is out in Japan, or perhaps early next year when released elsewhere, I would like to know if indeed the actual available memory for each card will be different. Forgive my n00bness, but why is this? Is it a quirk of card formatting, or does information need to be written on the cards prior to storage? Would the difference in purported stick size versus actual storage capacity differ based on card size?

Given the potential prices on these memory cards, I (as I am sure many other potential buyers) would like to know actual capacity information ASAP. Hopefully testing will be done soon to answer these questions.
