Sony PlayStation Vita gets cut

Is Sony being stingy, or will halving Vita’s memory save us all money?

The Sony PlayStation Vita has been in the pipeline for a long time, all the while threatening to blow mobile phone gaming out of the water with its mighty 512MB of RAM. Now Sony’s saying it will be sailing the good ship Vita out half-mast, with only 256MB. Sounds bad, but when you think its predecessor, the PSP did wonders with just 32MB of memory, the idea stars to make sense. Halving the memory will make huge savings that should be passed on to us consumers, without compromising the next gen gaming prowess of, potentially, the last stand against mobile phone gaming.
