PlayStation Vita games to come on DS-like memory cards not UMD

Sony finally unveiled the PlayStation Vita last week, now we have heard some details regarding what the handheld’s games will come on. The news comes from PSVitaUpdate and says that instead of using UMD, the new console will use DS-like memory cards.

Sony are referring to the memory cards as NVG cards, this sounds like the type of memory cards that the Nintendo DS uses to play games from. The small cards will come in 2GB or 4GB sizes which may differ depending on the size of the game, according to PSVitaUpdate around 5-10% of the card’s storage capacity will be left free.

The free space is useful for gamers that love to release DLC for their games, also some of this free space will be used for game saves, our only worry is that it may mean that losing a game will in turn result in you losing any purchased downloadable content and any game saves, this could be a major annoyance

To us there are both good and bad things to think about when it comes to using memory cards, tell us if you have any worries about this in the comments section below and we will be sure to keep you posted when we hear more on the situation.
