1 Let's get started!



Using memory cards Although there's 1 GB of internal memory built in to your PS TV system, that may not be enough for you depending on the size of what you save on the system and how you use it. So, if you need more space to save your games and content, you can use a PlayStationVita memory card (sold separately).

PlayStationVita memory card


Only insert or remove the memory card when the system is switched off. Always power off your PS TV system.

Once a memory card is inserted, data will be saved to it, and not to the internal memory card. Saved data will be located on the inserted memory card, and this location cannot be changed until the inserted memory card is removed.

The internal memory card - including data you've chosen to store there - cannot be used when a removable memory card is inserted.
