Some Vita titles require external memory card

It has been revealed that some games for the PlayStation Vita will require the use of an external memory card to save game progress.

Vita games purchased on the High Street take the form of small proprietary memory cards. Many of these will save a player’s progress directly onto the cartridge.

However, Kotaku reports that some do not offer this functionality, instead requiring the use of an external memory card plugged into Vita.

So far it has been confirmed that the following titles will need a memory card: Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Disgaea 3, Hot Shot Golf 6, Monster Radar, Dream Club Zero and @Field.

Obviously, any title that is purchased digitally over PSN will require the use of a memory card.

Sony has yet to announce the UK price for the Vita’s proprietary memory card format, but with Japanese prices ranging from £20 to £80 don’t expect them to come cheap.

so instead of making it a memory stick M2 or something we have to buy some stupid other card that is probably just like an m2, in the same way that a pro duo is practically the same as an SD... but more expensive... lame.. and given that the game cartridges has a writeable sector for patches and SAVES... why not.. i dunno... let them save ON THE GAME CARTRIDGE... they preach all this crap about bringing us new tech but still do stupid shit like this.... at least ninty got it right with the SD card... shame it cant be used for much.. if i had my way 3DS would have its own XBMC style app.
