    HDD's don't even have that storage capacity yet. I'd love to get me a memory card that does [​IMG]

    The PSP's pro duo format has a 32 gb max capacity (theoretical), right now it's at 16 gb max available to consumers. It's highly possible that we'll be seeing at least a 1tb card within the next year or two.

    I guess you'll need to buy a new reader to these cards right? Or a device capable of reading SDHC would do the job?

    I know they won't make 2TB cards soon, but I really hope they make at least 100GB cards this year.

    LOL, at least...
    It's would pretty awesome though, but still i cannot believe it...

    @m3rox: Then again, there is a huge difference between 32GB and 2TB!

    This is indeed amazing. Though I hope that you won't need to buy a special card reader for this.

    and I think the release capacity will be 32GB, definitely not 2 TB (Most external HDs don't even hold this much).

    2TB huh, might do to make a RAID/cluster. With the speeds that will presumably come along with it I would consider junking my main drive in favour of one of these.

    By the time they reach 2 TB (and become affordable) we'll probably all have 300 TB Hard Drives and games will be on Disks that hold 1 TB.

    DS would probably be long dead, too.

    Well being as all of the DS games are less then 100 gigs, I would assume so.

    Apparently its a joint between Sony and Sandisk. I believe Sandisk are the ones that help Sony make the official PSP memory cards (the ones that say Magic Gate on them because those are the only 2 that have Magic Gate on them, so I assume they made them together.)
