Sony pushing another proprietary format

Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson are among a group of companies backing a new memory standard. Called Universal Flash Storage, it would apply to both internal and removable memory; in the case of the latter, it would theoretically eliminate the need for adapters bridging different card sizes, such as SD and microSD. The group is also working towards dramtically improving power consumption and data density, as well as access times. As an example of its goal, the group says that while it can currently take three minutes to copy a 90-minute HD video, this time could be shrunk to seconds with UFS.

FIX THE TITLE! Original is: "Nokia, Sony, others push new memory standard" Nice try, fanboy. That was pathetic.

oh i know. i just meant this will start another arguement about something unimportant that has almost nothing to do with gaming

socomnick4109d ago

Hasent sony had a really bad track record on pushing formats. I think none of their formats has ever succeeded in the market. Blue-ray could be their first one but its no longer looking that way.

MrSwede4108d ago

Well this time it´s backed by 3 of the top 5 cellphone makers. Nokia has over 40% of the market so this format is here to stay.

strongbad14414106d ago

you're totally right. it's not like they popularized CDs and DVDs in game systems. </sarcasm>

This universal memory is being jointly developed as stated in the article by THREE companies & not just Sony (Inc. Samsung & Nokia). It would seem that it will offer compatibility benefits to the consumer which can only be a good thing as i am personally tired of multi -card readers. Heading of this article is incorrectly being sensationalistic & joining the bash Sony bandwagon. N4G should stop trash like this being posted just for the sake of having news.

Above commenter's are plain ignorant or stupid as they fail to see this is a "Joint Development" as clearly stated in the article. A venture by the largest players in the mobile market -including the king NOKIA.

Thank you! Case closed. Bubbles.

Lets see if they can acomplish it. To all detractors yeah i wonder why people push new technology when there is a risk of failure since come on who wants to make money, its like microsoft trying to get into japan why do it right?

Below: look for the definition of sarcasm

More propietary formats = More money.

sticky doja4109d ago (Edited 4108d ago )

Because more Japanese customers = more Japanese games.

Edit: My bad, alot of people on this site would state something like that and mean it. Also its hard sometimes to find sarcasm in text, you know without the whole Facial expressions and tone of voice thing.

@doja: I think grey was being sarcastic. at least i hope he was.
