    Like whoa: two terrabytes of data storage?! What the hell are you gonna do with all that? Read 'em and weep 'em buckoes. Sony and SanDisk have announced their joint development project which will expand memory stick formats to proportions yet unheard of.

    The first one is a new line for the Memory Stick PRO, tentatively dubbed as the "Expanded format for Memory Stick PRO". This new line includes expanded formats for the entire Memory Stick PRO series, namely PRO, PRO HG, and Micro (M2).

    Compared to the current gen of PRO memsticks that can go up to 32GB, this new format will be able to achieve up to 2TB of data storage (damn, that's even higher than what I got on my old, clunky PowerBook!).

    Other than the increased storage capacity, everything will pretty much remain the same: same dimensions, same number of pins, same transfer speeds. The new line will also still be supporting MagicGate and Access Control Function.

    Now on top of the expanded Memory Stick PRO line, Sony and SanDisk are also set to deliver an entirely new format, one called the Memory Stick HG Micro. It's based on the current M2 format, but will be improved to allow transfer speeds of up to 60MB/s.

    The press release didn't include any release dates for the new formats, however, development for these memsticks are already set to start this year.
    Holy shit. But the PSP only reads PRO Duo right?

    Its not happening for a long, long time. MS Pro Duos hold a max of 32gb, when those are in a good price range i dont really see the need to have more than 2 of those with me at any time, tbh.
    Very funny....not.

    Not really, 2TB is 2,097,152MB. So only three extra numbers.
