Memory Card for Sony PSP

Updated on March 20, 2011

Sony PSP

The Sony Playstation Portable is a great handheld device that you can take with you just about everywhere. It features optical disc games, a large screen, multi-media capabilities, connectivity with the PS3 and other PSPs, and it has internet capabilities. The PSP is probably one of the best handheld gaming devices that you can purchase.

Whether you have or are about to purchase the PSP Slim, PSP Lite, PSP-3000, or the PSP Go, you may find that the internal memory storage is just not enough, which means that you just may need a psp card to help hold more memory and save your games.

In general, the PSP Slim and Lite series nearly doubles the internal RAM with 32 MB to 64 MB of memory and storage space, but sometimes that's still not enough. The PSP Go has 16 GB of internal storage and a Memory Stick Micro versus the regular Memory Stick Duo that the other Sony PSP models feature.

The internal memory may sound like a lot, but if you're a serious gamer, you know better. You know that after a several good games, you can easily max out the internal storage. This is why Sony offers the memory card slot. They want to make sure that you have other options and that you don't have to delete your saved content.

PSP Card

If you are looking for a memory card for your PSP, you'll find that you have a lot of options to choose from.

First off you want to make sure that the memory card is compatible with the PSP. Memory cards can get expensive, so you want to make sure that you get it right the first time. ;-)

There are many brands that offer PSP compatible memory cards. Generally, you'll want to consider sticking with the SanDisk and Sony brands.

Since you've found the PSP cards, you want to figure out what storage option you want. PSP cards come in 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB, so you have plenty of options. Just remember that if you're a serious gamer, you may want to go ahead and throw down the bucks and purchase the biggest memory card that you can. It really is a pain to purchase a smaller storage card and end up having to buy another PSP card to make up the difference as to what you really need.

You should also make sure that get the right psp card. The PSP Go does not use the Memory Stick Duo, so if you have the PSP Go, you'll want to make sure that you purchase the Memory Stick Micro. If you purchase the wrong type of memory card, it won't fit into your PSP. Promise...

Just remember that PSP memory cards can be expensive, but you can shop around to find cheap psp cards that benefit both your gaming and wallet.
