Famitsu: PS Vita memory cards are a 'requirement'

Famitsu: PS Vita memory cards are a 'requirement' photo



When a company sells an optional add-on to a product, one usually assumes that it is just that -- optional. According to Famitsu, however, the PlayStation Vita's expensive memory cards aren't something you can just ignore, with some games refusing to even boot up without one inserted. 

Uncharted: Golden Abyss is one such game. It won't work unless you drop mad bank for an extra memory card. Famitsu has stated that these cards are "pretty much a requirement" for anybody wanting to play on Sony's new machine, which goes hand in hand with last week's news that game saves would be demanding them. 

I was impressed by the Vita's $250 price point, but it seems that's not the true cost of the machine once we factor memory cards into the mix. This is what we in the industry would call a "dick move" on the part of Sony, but I'm sure some of you think it's completely fair. I look forward to the defense of this one.
