Update
In Loving Memory

Friday
December 9th, 2011

The PSP made the stupid great decision to use Sony's Memory Stick for all its saves. This makes sense to Sony, of course, because the Memory Stick is their product. Flash forward. Sony is releasing a new handheld gaming platform, the Playstation Vita. Certainly the expensive, hard to find Memory Stick had to go. SD cards are now common and cheap. Even the technologically-xenophobic Nintendo eventually let users save downloadable titles to the SD card slot on the front of the Wii. The DSi and 3DS both save to SD card. It's become a universal standard.

Except at Sony, who have announced a new proprietary memory card for the Vita.

Gamestop's website lists these cards in four sizes: 4GB for $29.99, 8GB for $44.99, 16GB for $69.99, and 32GB for $119.99. That's incredibly expensive when you compare it to the 8GB SD cards you can easily get for $10 or less.

There's a rumor that Sony is marketing these expensive proprietary cards so they can safely discount digital titles, but I'll believe that when I hear it from Sony.

Wired shocked the gaming world with new that Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto was stepping down. This was followed by Nintendo releasing a statement that denies anything of the sort is happening. Nintendo took a 2% stock dip over the announcement. The sad truth is that Mr. Miyamoto will one day actually reture. I would like to think he will have trained many young developers before then, leaving Nintendo -- and gaming -- in capable hands.
