GDC11: NGP Media Will Include Dedicated Save Space
Straight from GDC 2011, Sony has released some details about the media that games will be come on for its upcoming handheld, the NGP.
The NVG cards, as they’re called right now, will come in two flash media storage sizes, 2Gb and 4Gb, depending on the size of the game they carry. One cool addition to the NVG cards is a dedicated 5 to 10 percent just for game saves, updates and the like. That way, you can easily transfer game saves to other devices by popping out the game you’re playing and just plugging it into another NGP, saving you from having to maneuver save files from internal memory to some other media. Great that we finally have reclaimed this technology from the days of the NES and The Legend of Zelda.
Sounds like Sony has some good ideas here. But it’s still a bummer that NGP won’t let you play the PSP UMD games you already own.
