At least they have the right idea. It would be nice if they stuck a 4gb stick in and maybe a voucher for $5-$10 off an accessory. I'm sure alot of people would be attracted to the idea of an all-in-one bundle with their game of choice, more so with the holidays where people passing up the WiiU might pick it up.

I thought the Vita did come with a 4gig memory stick?

Looks like things are finally looking good for the Vita, now if only the memory stick prices were tad lower.

Funny story, Zombie_Barioth. They actually were selling a bundled Vita during early July with the 4gb memory stick and a bunch of accessories (B+ quality headphones for the Vita, screen protector etc.) + a free game for $249.99 (which saves you like $80) at gamestop/eb games retailers if I recall. Don't know if it was the same over in the states. The fact that literally no one bought it/knew about it should be a set piece as to how poorly the system is doing in terms of sales >_>

Wakaman, I agree with the whole memory card schlick. Despite my sony-fanboyism I do admit that they went a little bit overboard with the memory card prices, especially when you compare it to the PSP :U

Well hopefully 3rd parties get their shit together wuickly because 3 years ago I bought a 2gig memory stick for my psp at Gamestop and they charged me $20. :<

All because it was brandname. That's the only reason I see them being sold at that ridiculous price, hell the reason I see anything sold at higher prices.

Wakaman Unfortunately we'll probably never see that Vita's memory stick size, in case you didn't know, are unique to the system. Even if a third party dev makes some Sony is probably going to update the Vita to prevent use of it mainly because of pirating scares (and we all know how much that killed PSP as a whole lol)

Sony derped themselves over in the end, though. You can pretty much live with a 4gb card the entire time because you can create infinite memory card back-ups on your PC lol

Yeah I know they're unique, or else we'd be using our PSP memory sticks and saving money. Someone will start churning out the 3rd party memory sticks eventually though. Also as for hacking the Vita part, it's not that simple this time around as it was/is for PSP so really that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Actually about that, 4GB isn't alot because most people want to bring some of their PSP games over to the Vita and digitally is the only way so at times you'd have to delete a game judt to make room for another constantly.

While I was in support of removing the UMD drive, they really took advantage of us by making us pay for PSP games all over again and some of the better ones aren't even on the PSN/SEN yet. The UMD Passport was a good idea but we'd still be rebuying a game we already have even if at a discount, and then I believe only Japan got that so we were forced to buy at full price. I'm sure that wasn't Sony's fault entirely but still.

Even 8GB is a bit small at times tbh
16 is about right.

Yeah, buy 16 or 32 if you can but I always buy physical copies...never buy digital games, so, 8GB is perfectly OK so far for me...

Mrblikey Yea I remember that I think the problem is like Nintendo they did a horrible job of telling people what it is. They seemed to assume most of the people buying it were gamers that kept up to date on the news when in reality we're actually the minority here.

They didn't tell you the game that came with it was digital, what the difference between models were, or anything. Add to it the free game had no series/brand recognition. We were pretty much in the dark. Package it with a well known/ hyped system selling series and some goodies to get you started along side things like cross play and things should hopefully pick-up.
