Sony over charge for memory stick?

I am just looking at Sony memory sticks vs non sony memory sticks
For the lower capacity the prices are fairly the same.

but looking at sony's 2 & 4 gig memory stick there sure is a very large price difference (prices canadian)

Sonys 4 gig 1200 dollars
Sandisks 4 gig 400 dollars thats an 800 dollar difference

Sonys 2 gig 600 dollars
Sandisks 2 gig 200 dollars a 400 dollar difference
Why so much more money for the Sony's
Is it a speed difference? and would you even notice that in your camera?
And does it justify the price

I have a photographic memory, but I always seem to have the lens cap on.
