You can use that $5 off $25 to bring down the price even more

Looks like they price matched Sony Store, at least at the 16 gb size.

Hopefully they lower the 8GB. Not too excited to spend $40 on a memory card.

Is this not the usual price for one of these? I got a 16gb from NewEgg for $47 over the summer.

Yeah $46-$47 is the usual price amazon sells the 16gb for. It just shot up after that vita bundle deal over black friday.

Bought one with the free $5 promo. $43 shipped isn't bad when I can sell my 4gb for at least $10.

Should hold me over for a few years until they release 64 and 128gb sticks and the 32gb's will drop down a lot.

I price matched amazon for a 16gb card @best buy a few days before the ps plus update to the vita, and even though it fills up fast it was worth it. 32gb is just too freaking expensive.

I can't bring myself to spend this much on a 16gb card. I'd really like to get a 32gb for my vita, especially with ps plus giving free shit every other week. For now, I'm downloading free vita ps+ content onto my ps3 which I upgraded to a 750gb hard drive, so that I can have it downloaded before it's removed as free content from the ps store.

Fucking ridiculous, but it's as ridiculous as the memory card prices.

Went for a 16GB since I don't ever buy anything digitally if it comes out with a physical copy. It should last me a good while.

Much better to get a 32gb up front. I have a 16gb and am happy, have 52 games on it (and 1.5gb free), but I'll be getting a 32gb eventually.

Lol I remember one day when I went to Amazon and they randomly had the 32GB Memory Card for $71.99 and I bit. It was lost in trasaction, so they sent me another with one-day shipping (an upgrade from my 2-day shipping due to Prime) and it arrived on time. A few days later the lost one arrived as well. 2 32GB Memory Cards for $71.99 :D!

TL;DR: Amazon lost the first 32GB at the facility, sent another, the original was found and shipped to me anyways. 2 for $71.99 :D!

No way amazon would do that. They aren't loose like that .. Then again its easy to scam amazon and say you have a defective/didn't recieve item.

Considering you can "buy" stuff on PS+ without downloading it right away and just get it later, and that I'll probably stick with physical games for now and there aren't even that many games on Vita I will really ever buy....I guess I haven't seen the appeal yet of a giant card I'll never fill up. It's almost like it's an excuse to buy more games.

What's more likely is that UPS lost your package in their sorting facility. It happens all the time. Much less often with 2-day than ground but it is still known to happen. Every Fed-ex package I get seems to have it happen. 2-day shipping always turns into a week.

He's not saying the package arrived without a card. He's saying the entire package was lost.

Still, since the original one showed up didn't return it, keeping the second is immoral and the same as stealing. In the big picture, it also ensures that prices are less likely to drop, because retailers have to make up for loss/theft and pass it onto the consumer.

Enjoy your extra 16gb memory card, thief. You've screwed everybody just a little.

For what its worth, retailers already calculate loss/theft into their prices. It won't raise the price any since they already assume that this stuff happens. And, yes, the whole theory that "it wouldn't be that way if nobody did etc etc" is TRUE, but then again, that's why we have armies and nukes right? If everyone just stopped fighting, we wouldn't need, etc etc.

TLDR; he didn't screw anyone over. One man can't change the world blah blah etc. Welcome to reality. :cold:

I decided to just bite on the Toys R Us promotion of buy one, get one at 50% off. Bought Far Cry 3 for Xbox 360 for $59.99, and got a $59.99 16 GB Vita memory card for $29.99. Figured it was the best I could do, and Far Cry is definitely worth the $60.

I actually got a 32 and 16 gb durring the sony sale. PM'd @ Best Buy

I actually had some trouble setting up my Vita. Looks like there was another patch the other day after i patched it for the first time. I like to wait a day or two after a patch to make sure there are no problems. So it will be a day or so before i can format my 32gb and start playing

Question: Do i have to do anything to link my PS+ account? Id like to take advantage of these PS+ games for the vita but am not sure if it would be best to just d.load them directly, or put them my PS3, then transfer them, or what. Id also like to try to transfer some of my PS1 classics like Suikoden, but am concerned about the stupid limitations Sony put on how many consoles/handhelds you can put a game on.
