The PlayStation Vita is launching on December 17 in Japan, while those of us in North America still don't know when it will be appearing on store shelves here. Sony has announced that 26 games will be available for the system at launch in Japan, along with a wide array of peripherals... including proprietary memory cards. Keep in mind, the system has no built-in memory, so if you'd like to use downloadable games, movies, or music, you're going to need to buy into Sony's proprietary format.
Battery life has also been shared via a press release, and if you didn't like the 3DS in this regard you'll be just as happy with the Vita.
Here are the sizes of the memory sticks that will be available, next to the price in Yen and then an approximate value in dollars. Buckle up.
Memory Card 4GB ¥2,200 $29
Memory Card 8GB ¥3,200 $42
Memory Card 16GB ¥5,500 $71
Memory Card 32GB ¥9,500 $124
