Remember The PS Vita Memory And Game Cards (Don’t Forget!)

Remember The PS Vita Memory And Game Cards (Don’t Forget!)

Sony’s already showed off the proprietary PS Vita memory cards. At the E3 gaming expo, Sony showed them off again. This time was different.

The PS Vita memory cards on display were 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB cards. The game cards are also on display.

There was also a card case, and an official PS Vita cloth to wipe fingerprints off. You’ll need that. Trust me.

PS VITAのメモリーカードは、SDカードでもメモステでもない新規格? etc. [へちま速報]



  • Why not just run SD/Micro SD like every other bloody device on the planet? I was sick of the Memory Stick shit the first time around with the PSP.

    • I’m guessing because Sony wouldn’t make any money from non-Sony SD cards, but would take a licensing fee for 3rd parties who make the new proprietry Sony cards -that is if they allow 3rd parties to make them at all.

      Does Sony currently let 3rd parties make Memory Sticks? I haven’t looked at them in years, but early on at least they made them all themselves. They were damn expensive too.

    • Amen to that. Being so far behind standard SD cards was a real pain, both for my psyche when I had to constantly swap between two cards, and for my poor wallet at having to follow their slow 2-4-8gb development because NONE of those numbers were enough.

      Apparently they’re not using standard SD because they want to embed custom piracy protection into the cards themselves… Joy.

  • So this is how they recoup the cost of making the vita itself quite cheap? 10 bucks a gig or something?

  • Why can’t they just sell games on these (Like Nintendo DS Carts)? I hate downloading large games. Takes an hour or so, and then you can’t even sell it later after you play through it, since they use digital now.
