Sony is releasing a new games bundle for the PS Vita in February: the Indie Games Mega Pack, featuring 10 top titles from innovative and up-and-coming developers. The pack with feature games like Hotline Miami, Velocity Ultra, Thomas Was Alone and more, along with a 4GB memory card.
PS Vita Firmware v1.80 released earlier today has yet another undocumented feature. A poster on NeoGAF has discovered that the new firmware locks a user’s memory card under one PSN account, requiring a format if you want to use a different account.
If you are still deciding what size memory card to get for your PlayStation Vita, the below information may help you decide. We’ve collected information on various PS Vita titles to see how much space each one takes if downloaded from the PlayStation Store. In short – the bigger the memory card, the better.
This bit of news is likely to cause disappointment to players who tend to purchase second-hand games. On the PlayStation Vita, trophies can only be unlocked for the first player that uses the game. If you purchase a second-hand game, all the game data on the card needs to be reset before the second player can earn trophies.
Last week Sony mentioned that the PlayStation Vita only allow only one PSN account to be linked to the portable console, and that changing this account would require a factory reset. It seems that Sony has taken a u-turn on their initial statement and has provided new information on multi-accounts.
American videogames retailer, Gamestop, has revealed the prices of the PlayStation Vita Memory Cards. The proprietary format cards are available in sizes ranging from 4GB up to 32GB and are based on the SD memory card format. As we expected, the Vita’s memory cards are much more expensive than the standard SD cards.
A list has surfaced that shows which PlayStation Vita games will require an additional memory card, and which ones won’t. It’s worth noting that the games won’t give you the option: those that save to their own dedicated space on the game card will always do so.
PS Vita memory cards are available in three sizes and will be priced at the following:
- 4Gb Memory Card – €19.99/£17.99/$26.95 AUD/$34.95 NZD
- 8Gb Memory Card – €34.99/£31.99/$44.95 AUD/$59.95 NZD
- 16Gb Memory Card – €49.99/£44.99/$64.95 AUD/$84.95 NZD
