Insufficient memory problems? Hopefully, not for long.

Is it just me or does the constant need to delete game saves to make room for others get kind of tedious and annoying? Home consoles have adapted to include hard drives, and come close to eliminating the problem. However, portable systems, even with memory card slots, just never had the capacity. This is especially true now that handheld gaming systems are getting downloadable content and media support like their homebound brethren.

That is, until now. SanDisk, the leading developer of flash memory cards, announced cards for the three top portable systems, which rival some personal media players. The new line up includes a 16GB Memory Stick Micro™ (M2)™ card for the Sony® PSP® go system; a 32GB Memory Stick PRO Duo™ and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo™ card for the Sony PSP® system; and an 8GB SDHC™ card for the Nintendo DSi™ system. For full details read the original press release here.

Each individual card practically doubles the memory capacity of their respective units, and are not limited to just gaming systems. Their compatibility extends to most electronics that use the same card size. What makes these special then? Read and write speeds that keep your data flowing fast and free, and avoid choppy video streaming and audio hiccups.

All of these SanDisk offerings are shipping now in the United States except the 32GB SanDisk Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo card, which will be shipping world wide a little later in October. Individual retailers will set final pricing.
