A new gaming portable means more than new games. It also means new peripherals, and that's exactly what Sony is giving the PS Vita.
Some of the peripherals are no surprises (a pouch! a cloth!), while others are other slightly more interesting.
Sony also provided the Japanese pricing for the PS Vita memory cards. Let's dive in.
At the PS Vita's December 17 launch, the following items will be available: 4GB Memory Card (¥2,200 or US$29), 8GB Memory Card (¥3,200 or $42), 16GB Memory Card (¥5,500 or $72), 32GB Memory Card (¥9,500 or $124), AC adaptor (¥1,800 or $24), USB cable (¥1,300 or $17), PS Vita cradle (¥2,800 or $36), in-ear headset (¥2,800 or $36), protective film (¥800 or $10), card case (¥600 or $8), case (¥1,800 or $23), pouch (¥1,500 or $20), travel pouch with cleaning cloth and wrist strap (¥2,300 or $30), and a carrying pouch (¥1,800 or $23).
Obviously, this is Japanese pricing. If these items are announced for the West, each region should have different pricing.
A car adaptor and a portable charger are planned for release in spring 2012. Pricing is TBA.
