The NGP's memory storage capabilities are puzzlingly absent from the hardware specifications released by Sony today.
They already stated it would have 16 gigs of onboard memory. Ofcourse that's likely the more expensive 3g version of the machine. :) 16 gigs should be good. I wouldn't mind a 32 gig version though.
@above, can I have a link please where they stated that?
I don't recall them saying how much memory it will have either.. But 16gb isn't all that much...
That stupid proprietary memory card is once again going to be the downfall of yet another Sony device. I don't know why Sony keeps doing this shit, they are always creating some new bullshit form of memory card so that can charge out the ass for it. What was wrong with a standard SD or Micro-SD card.
That stupid proprietary memory card can mostly be blamed on the hackers. They are just making it all the more difficult for people to muck with the device.
why the hell would you think they WOULDN'T have a proprietary storage medium FOR THE GAMES? every system in history (i think) has had a proprietary storage medium for putting the games on. ds...proprietary, every gameboy...proprietary, psp...proprietary, even cds are proprietary, they're not just an ordinary cd or dvd with a game just copy and pasted on it. what a stupid thing to say, it's not like they won't have a spot for a memory card. it's for security dude, and i'm happy they did it too, i don't want this thing hacked and ruined @DaCajun it's not even the memory card they're cryin about, it's what they use to put the games on, lol the memory card will be something universal most likely (and yes sony ms is almost as universal as sd card)
So do you people cry about the DS which does the same thing, they use their own proprietary memory card. The DS seems to do just fine. If they didn't someone could buy one and just copy it to all their friends SD cards. So stop crying you wanna be pirate and support the devs buy buying their games and not pirating you degenerates. How would you like to go to work and not get paid for all the work you do? I bet you wouldn't like that, oh wait you probably don't even work, just leach off society.
I want 64gb built in. I mean, my ipod touch has it... so why not?
Rumors stated it, also the pspgo does have that amount of, why woldn't the NGP?... 3G is a good deal-breaker to get some gaming market-share from the iphone(1 to 10 dollars games, infinity blade and etc), and obviously need an amount of inboard memory to go along with (Obvious assumption) also again, we are in 2011...and people still doubting this sht won't carry any-thing around what it's suppose to?...oh you
Im interested in this product, since I been aching to get a PSP but...I don't want to pay more than 200 - 250 =|
The original psp was 300 on arrival so your must likely gona have to wait this one out. After about 6 months theyll maybe lower it to 280 or maybe it was 270 for the psp. Thats when I bought mine.
i will just buy it day one, Premium products have premium prices
Sony will sell it at a loss I believe, like they always do since the very psp. 3G-less = 300/50 3G = 400 would even pay for this five tAwNsand LOL.
It is crazy to sell it for 400.
@Kon ipad sells for 500/600... 64gb ipod touch is 400...
@ skrug I agree small portable storage and 3G is expensive but... don't use Apple pricing as a reference...they are retarded
@visualb, ask yourself this question instead of saying Apple is retarded: Is Apple retarded to price their products or are the people?
oh apple ain't retarded. hell I love their Mac books but their pricing for iPhones and iPads are retarded...
@visualb yet people eat it up.. Most apple product is overpriced for what you get (IMO)
I hope it isn't proprietary memory slots again. Sony really did gamers a favor by allowing third party off-the-shelf notebook hard drives for the PS3. Gotta give them props for that!
Last time i checked i could just buy a Sandisk/Lexar/whatever brand of memory stick for the psp so i don't know wtf you are talking about.
maybe he means like the 360 only reading certain hardrives coded im assuming thus making a mem stick being coded meaning u have to buy a certain..... you know what im confused too lol though i understand a lil bit
I'd imagine one slot would be proprietary for game sticks and the other would accept memstick or sd for content/game saves etc.
Proprietary? Fuck off
Propietary > Piracy...just look at the commenter below me. @ Mista T...128 fcking GB for a memory card? HOLY FUCK-DEUMmm, I believe card are gonna be the future now, no more scratching disk, loading time, consoles's lectors breaking, no yellow or red damn eyes of the death ^.^, pleasae ps4, or nintendo, make this a reality. FTW
How would this be different than any other game cartridge that has existed for the last 30 years...they are all proprietary....I'm imagining the 2nd slot would be for 'common' flash cards for game saves/photo/video of your own creation.
so I can or can't use my ScanDisk memory sticks or not?
Yes you'll use it to play games you buy from PSN and to store music and movies to listen and watch on the PSP2. The games you buy in stores will just likely be on an oddly shaped proprietary flash-based card so people can't easily copy and steal games.
its nice to see that a physical format will still be carts
I wonder what the capacity of this new game media is. I mean, the NGP supposed to nearly be able to play PS3 games so it most have a lot of space. I'm guessing 16 GB and they will probably later introduce 32 GB. What do you guys think?
I'll probably get me one of these for it :) http://www.myce.com/news/le...
Not sure you will be able to as they are introducing a NEW medium. Its very similar to SD, but its a little different in shape.
from that same article mista posted is a link to a new compact flash standard sony is involved in. lets hope i dont have to pay 5hundred for a terabyte by the time summer 2012 rolls around.
Thats expensive lol
it is, but there is a 64gb sd card on Amazon I was looking at that costs around 100 something.
I'm going to guess the top slot is not for storage, but for a SIM for 3G.
You are probably right. I cant see the point in having 3 card slots in the NGP. Unless of course sony want you to able to carry 2 games at once inside of the NGP. Which i think is unlikely
Thank goodness. NO MORE UMD DISK!! Sony should of thought of that before they launch with UMD instead of using cartridge or memory cards. Don't know how many disc I went through so hard to keep it in shape.
Propriety card for games makes sense. But if they use anything new format for general storage I'm gonna be pissed. So sick of buying a new card type for everything. Still going to buy the system regardless haha.
For storage it'll most likely use either SD or Memory Stick or both.
I hope that the second slot is for SDHD cards. Cause sonys memory stick format is expensive.
It's the new SDXC card format propriety sony's using, I'm sure it is. The card starts at 32gb and goes all the way to 2TB. It make so much sense.
