Sony has revealed the final specifications for the upcoming PlayStation Vita.

Finally, the long wait is over! Sony just unveiled the official specifications for its upcoming PlayStation Portable Vita. As confirmed by the manufacturer, the handheld gaming device will be carrying a 512MB of RAM, and not 256MB RAM as rumored.

It was last month when Novarama’s CEO, Dani Sánchez-Crespo, hinted about the RAM capacity of the anticipated PSP successor. “Remember the PSP had 32MB of RAM, we have about ten times that now,” he stated. If you were to do the math, his statement would rather mean that the Vita might be able to support a memory of more than 256 RAM.

Sony Poll Fans for PlayStation Vita Peripherals

Written on August 16, 2011 by Adam Eve

Sony is collecting a consensus between fans on what PlayStation Vita peripheral would they like to see. Would this bring a UMD converter in the market soon?

Sony polls their fans on what PlayStation Vita peripherals would they like to see at its Japanese community site. It is obvious that the firm is using their time well, now that the PS Vita will be rolling out in Japan this year, followed by US and Europe early next year. And though the community site is written in Japanese characters, browsing through the pages will tell you that a UMD converter is on top of the wish list. Other peripherals mentioned were cradle with HDMI out, full keyboard attachment, and secondary battery.

It is not surprising that a UMD converter becomes a top request, since there are still UMD-only PSP titles like Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Hopefully, this move from Sony could be an indication that a peripheral as such would be considered.
