Internal Memory

6 Replies 1,563 Views Created 28-01-2012

Had my vita on order for a while and have just thought about accessories. With all the talk of memory cards does the vita have any internal memory for storage? or does it need a memory card to function at all?

No internal memory at all, requires a memory card to boot applications

Re: Internal Memory

it has some form of internal memory as it stores your id and stuff. You dont need a memory fard for all games/apps but some wont run without one.

No, the system has "some" system memory for settings etc, its not internal memory though, you will need a memory card however to download items from the store, run most applications and save certain games, some games however will save to the game cart but may still require a memory card to run due to installs

Re: Internal Memory

To download off the store, you will need a memory card.

 

To use some of the apps, you will need a memory card.

 

To store any music/video on the device for playback, you will need a memory card.

 

To play games that you buy on cartridge, it depends on the game. Some will work without additional memory. Some will not. Those that will not should have a sticker on the box saying that you require a memory card.
