SCE UK managing director Fergal Gara has said its already securing “bigger” memory cards for PlayStation Vita in the UK.

Talking to Eurogamer at the UK launch event, Gara said it had learned lessons from the Japanese launch that, as it is, “we probably haven’t got big enough memory cards introduced for the UK market”.

“We’ve already gone to secure bigger size cards to bring them into the UK market,” he said.

“It’s early days. Before it comes to market you just have to guess what people are going to want. We thought they’d want a lot of 4GB cards just as the minimum, and then they buy packaged media.

“But actually, the way it’s going is, many of the early adopters are clearly going to download a bit more, or just want to buy the big chip in case. It’s going to evolve. But we can certainly see they want bigger cards.”

Sony currently only has 4Gb, 8Gb, 16Gb and 32Gb memory sticks on offer, with the cheapest being £14.99 for the 4Gb and the highest being £45 for the 16Gb. The 32Gb version currently isn’t currently available in the UK.
