Sony has revealed that the new game media for the NGP that will house all upcoming games will be between 2GB and 4GB in size, a portion of which will be reserved for game saves and patches.

This surpasses the PSP UMD format’s capacity, which capped games at just under 2GB.

While this is certainly good news, it seems almost like a retro-esque concept to be able to store save files directly onto actual game carts. Does this mean when you buy a used NGP game that you’ll also be acquiring a bunch of old saves?

Maybe not, as Sony could implement a system wherein save files and the such are linked to specific devices, in much the same way as a PSP can only open games and files from one PSN account at a time.

Be sure to keep it locked on NGP 24/7 for more updates in the future.
