Also, my PSP3000 with that dual microSD to Memory Stick adapter was getting 30MB/s write and read speeds, obviously limited by USB2.0, they're not as crap as you make them out to be...Unless you're buying the cheapest models, even the classier higher end models are cheaper than MS' on average.
Nice try, USB2.0 is limited to 60MB/s in theory, usually its lower, even if that is a real bench of a MS and not an older HDD or something, it still isn't showing realistic speeds.

Your comparing a newer generation sd card with 2003's Pro Duo and saying it has the same speeds makes me wonder.Even though your memory card reads and writes at that speed the device's memory bus is limited only to read and write at 10mb/s while PSP does 16mb/s. Please do some research even you begin to say "very little". If your sd cards haven't failed it means you haven't used. USB 2.0 are limited to 36-48mb/s and my memory card reader can only do at 30mb/s. Thats how HD tune attempts to do benchmark with negative results. You cannot compare a Pro Duo or Vita memory with cheap SD card even my san disk that costs 200$. They are far superior in every way. You need to do more research with the products itself instead of googling and using wiki's for arguments. You don't understand the basic foundation of how the memory cards work.

Come on, you guys were really expecting something different here? If history has taught us anything, it's that it tends to repeat itself. (pro duo anyone??$$) Especially when they are planning to sell a ton of Vitas, what's another way to make tons more $$$? Control the memory prices. I haven't read up on the vita, but lemme guess. It uses a special kind of memory that for a while only Sony will be manufacturing?

You only NEED a 4 gb memory stick for saves.. so its pretty much non-issue unless you want it to be. Again day 1 I bet there will be adapters.

Every SDCard I've owned, ever (Since 2006ish) has been limited by USB2.0, as has every Memory Stick Pro Duo (I've owned at least 5 of them), most USB2.0 devices get limited to 30MB/s but it does depend on the motherboard (I can get higher speeds on my laptop as it only has a handful of USB ports), they aren't any superior in the slightest, I've had extensive experience with both and if your SDCards are dying, you're definitely doing something wrong. I use my SDCard (4GB Class 4 el cheapo Sandisk one) in my phone every day, reading and streaming data as well as writing to it. I've had that in my old phone and it's been going fine since early 2009.
You're paying extra because it's proprietary and Sony can charge extra due to that.
