The PS Vita Dilemma: A Case of Short-Term Memory | Game Insider

Game Insider: "Sony must have forgotten, but they had the right idea with the PSP Go, offering a platform with on-board memory to push their online store. While the PS Vita as a whole takes a few evolutionary steps forward with its second analog stick and touch controls, it takes a step back with its lack of any on-board memory."

i think sony needs to bundle the vita with a 16 gb memory card and add a 64 gb as well because with playstation plus coming to the little system a 32 gb will not be enough anymore and those prices need to come down.

I'm not a PlayStation Plus member but with all the free to download games and perks Sony is providing, it's getting harder for me to ignore the service.

64 GB of on-board memory would be great, but it's unlikely they'd add such a large amount of memory to the system without the cost of the system increasing significantly. The 16GB bundle seems more likely...but hardly enough for what's available on PSN.

Hopefully they can offer Vita owners a larger amount of cloud storage space when the Vita gets Ps Plus than the 1 GB currently available for PS3 plus owners. There are currently much fewer Vita Owners than PS3 owners, so they should be able to offer more storage space per user. Sony should also take into consideration that the Vita is currently capped at 32 GB while the PS3 could have up to a terabyte of space. Offering a huge amount of cloud storage space would be a big incentive for more people to adopt, as well as giving more value to current Vita owners.

wow i've never thought of that, very good suggestion. You should share that idea on the blog man.

PSN is effectively cloud storage as you have to download before you can play. Problem is you need storage on the receiving device.

EmperorDalek2249d ago

Good point. Why would you need 32GB of storage if its just for save game files since the game install files could just be re-downloaded off PSN if needed.

CommonSenseGamer2249d ago

Vita needs free storage especially since you need some before you can actually usemany of its gaming, music and video playback.

In terms of storage Sony got it right with the Go then took a step back with the Vita.
