I was planning on picking up a small memory card anyway, so this news doesn't bother me at all ^^

smashcrashbash2926d ago

Same here. Doesn't faze me in the least. We already know that Sony said we would need a memory card for some games. Besides we still don't know the actual price of them.

blumatt2926d ago

I was kinda hoping the cards the games come on were like 16GB or so, but I guess that would cost a lot more to produce. However, I'm sure Sony will make the game cards' capacity larger in the future.

Really says next gen doesn't it? .....sweet.

I knew eventually that I would be buying a men card but if going by this title, I have to buy a men card just for game saves then THAT'S really disappointing. Memory for games saves shouldn't be an issue anymore with ANY system. If you wanna go beyond that then its understandable.

We might be seeing this for bigger/major titles more than for smaller titles.

I am planning to get the Vita day 1 but not the memory card too. I usually have problem filling memory card with stuff just like I have problem filling my 500GB PS3 with barely anything besides demos! I just like to keep my other things in a separate HDD so that I can bring them anywhere, anytime. so now the memory card is kinda 'mandatory' isn't it? damn...I think they are scheming so that people buy the memory cars with every Vita sold! I know that I might have a use for it later but I don't want to feel like I'm forced to buy it either! damn!

Heartnet2925d ago

yeh but i doubt the vita will have any onboard memory(or very very little) so if u want to download any games (i hear there cheaper?) ud need a memory card anyway

badz1492925d ago

but there were news about games being saved on the game card itself which IMO is perfect! I can have more than 1 Vita and if I play my game on the other Vita, my game saves are brought together. now that additional memory card is required for game saves, you have to admit, it's kinda sucks!

Knushwood Butt2926d ago

I would have thought all of the cart based games will be read only anyway as that is more secure.

WillGuitarGuy2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

This doesn't surprise me. The memory card that came with my PSP barely had any memory at all. I would figure that the Vita be similar but not as small with memory.

good ol nickel and dimming, these companies get you with everything. quit making excuses for any of them there should be 4-8gb built in

sashimi2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

Oh gosh you are so right, how dare Sony sell hardware at a loss and not include even more stuff! what were they thinking. How dare they want more money from us, they must be out of their minds.

ForROME2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )


Thanks for backing me up


Since you are Forrest gump, if you at some point are forced to buy a card just for a game, then you are paying more, key word REQUIRES***

smarten up kid

LMAO @ForROME, misunderstanding sarcasm is hilarious.

imoutofthecontest2926d ago

Again you use that word "requires."
It's not a requirement for all games though. You can use the system without it. Believe it or not, a lot of people don't have your exact tastes or lifestyle. I know it sounds crazy, but they're out there.

imoutofthecontest2926d ago

That would raise the system cost and be unfair to people who don't need it. Just because you feel the "need" to play Uncharted doesn't mean everyone else does, or Uncharted 2 for PS3 would have sold like 40 million copies worldwide. If you feel you need it, you can buy it. If not, you don't have to pay for it.

It's better to go this route than build it into the system and drive up the cost for EVERYONE regardless of their needs.
