Just a nerd from the Windy City. I’m actually really bad at describing myself because I get all self-critical and self-conscious. Follow me on Twitter, @The1stMJC, to see my borderline insane rants on tv shows and other non important subjects. If I’m not tweeting I’m probably just watching Buffy or Firefly for the millionth time.

  • Folder thing is nice I guess. A lot of people seem to want that for some reason.

      Cuts down on clutter. I know I use folders on my PS3 for that reason. I have a Plus folder, App folder, Games folder, and Retro(PsOne games) folder.

      • I guess. It be nice to hide some of the icons you don’t use but can’t get rid of (hello Welcome Park).

    Memory card icon layout being saved is excellent. Now Sony just needs to release the 64GB card.

      Now i can use my extra 4gig card for some of the psone and smaller games

      At a reasonable price, one would hope.
      Not that I’m holding my breath on that…

      No way! The cost would probably be $200.

    • Weren’t they suppose to lower the prices of the cards? I see this as a big reason Vita is being held pack. Its almost like buying half of your console again for a card.

      • ChazzH69

        It was apparently planned that the 64GB card would release at a later date and we would have probably seen a slight price reduction for the lower card sizes at the same time. I would look towards E3 for more news on this.

  • is it now possible to use more than 1 memory card without having to setup the whole system again or changing the account or similar inconveniences?
