One of the announcements that prompted the largest cheers during Sony’s big GamesCom press conference today centred around reduced PlayStation Vita memory cards – but they’re not actually getting that much cheaper.
Writing on the PlayStation Blog, the platform holder confirmed that the 4GB card will cost you $14.99 (down from $19.99), while the 8GB card will retail for $19.99 (down from $29.99). Meanwhile, the 16GB card will set you back $39.99 (down from $59.99), while the 32GB card will sting you $79.99 (down from $99.99).
While the prices are definitely moving in the right direction, they are still prohibitively expensive compared to similarly-sized SD cards. Still, at least the console is now $50 cheaper, too. The reductions are set to go into effect later today in North America.
