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 (¥2200 or $28), 8GB Memory Card (¥3200 or $40), 16GB Memory Card (¥5500 or $70), 32GB Memory Card (¥9500 or $122), AC adaptor (¥1800 or $23), USB cable (¥1300 or $16), PS Vita cradle (¥2800 or $35), in-ear headset (¥2800 or $35), protective film (¥800 or $10), card case (¥600 or $8), case (¥1800 or $22), pouch (¥1500 or $20), travel pouch with cleaning cloth and wrist strap (¥2300 or $30), and a carrying pouch (¥1800 or $22).
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 the first half of 2012. Pricing is TBA.
