Lately my PS Vita got a lot of use, because I’ve discovered Atelier Rorona Plus: the Alchimist of Arland. And as I’ve written about before, what an amazing game. I know I’m late to the party, but now that I’ve done some research on the series, I know that there are two more plus versions waiting for me. Atelier Totori and Atelier Meruru are in the same series of PS3 games that have been adapted for the Vita. Problem is, those games are only available as a download, and with my measly 8GB memory card, I am pretty much out of room.
And that’s a problem with the Vita: you can only buy special PSP Vita micro SD’s for it. And you can guess: Sony wants to make some money on that, resulting in ridiculously expensive cards. I have been brooding on that for some time now, but today I bit the bullet and ordered myself a 64 GB card. That kind of memory isn’t even available here in Europe, so I resorted to ordering mine through Amazon.com. It still cost me an arm and a leg, but at least I’ll know I can download new games without any problem. (At least, if my information is correct that the card isn’t region locked)
I do wonder if this isn’t one of the reasons why the Vita isn’t nearly as successful as the 3DS. What are your thoughts on the matter, and have you added additional memory already?
