There will be 128 and 256 cards eventually and they will be expensive on release but will get a lot cheaper as time goes by. Also SD cards are a dying technology. I bet you in a few years it will be completely dead. That is the reason they created micro SD cards is to replace SD cards. It will happen sooner or later.
Yes, prices go down in general, of course they do. But if you watch trends (and this makes sense) the full size is consistently cheaper and further along in capacity. We are talking about a slice today, but a year ago, full size was also larger capacity and cheaper. And you would actually pay $120 for 2 micro sd cards, because as I said, they're 60+ on Amazon. You would pay $80 for two 64GB full size SD cards.
So yes, they are cheaper, and they are larger capacity. Period. There really isn't any way to argue otherwise. The argument for micro is size, not storage capacity or price. And since most hifi MP3 players are bricks, there is plenty of room for the full size cards.
