I was looking for something like this when I got my Vita - there are plenty of options for the PSP.

Now that the Vita is dead you can finally get one!

Still good for hacking it I guess, 128GB MicroSD cards are cheap, and hey it's only $9 for the adapter. Vita memory cards were just stupid expensive.

Looks like a 64GB Vita card is still $89 on Amazon, $59 for 32GB and $24 for a pathetic & useless 8GB. Yeah, we're all shocked and saddened your thing failed Sony. Assholes.

For comparison, a good, name-brand Samsung 32GB microSD card is $7 and comes with the full-size SD adapter.

Looks like there are cheaper SD2Vita devices too;

Definitely requires the Vita to be "jailbroken" though, and it appears these go in the game slot not the memory card slot, so it's not a 1:1 replacement for the Vita memory, but from the bit I've read so far it looks like you can load games on these and there are also methods to store save files.

So cart games + downloadable games, it does replace the memory card but it's a roundabout process, not as simple as the PSP.

I bought one six months ago for like $12.

It sits in it's baggie by my computer.

one day jennifer, one day

I still think Sony really killed themselves by being fucking cocks on the Vita memory cards.. especially when the system was built around downloading games.

Hey why don't you buy a game from the store... oh sorry you don't have the space.

Seriously.. memory cards should have been stupid cheap.
