They serve to save progress, records, settings, etc. game Playstation 1 (PS1). Remember that the CD had PS1 games and no HDD or any type of internal persistent memory that could be used for these functions. Hence the need to use these external memory cards, they were sold separately. They fit into two slots on the console, which are next to the driver inputs.
Motivation and Purchase
In my times Playstation 1 (PS1), which we were a late much as I have explained here in Skooter Blog, I got 3 memory cards Original Sony. If you do not remember correctly, two came packaged with the console. It was a package made by the store, because I think the same console does not come with any. The third I got after filling the first two. Each memory card has 15 slots, and each game usually occupy one, But there are games that need more than one slot. So it's not too hard to fill them with enough games.
There in the past decade I got to add a little more than 60 games of Playstation 1 (PS1), a few bought in shops, few other downloaded on the Internet (it took weeks!), and most were CDs that I rented and I copy on CD-R. At the time it was very difficult to find any original game in Brazil. Both in stores and in the rental predominated pirated copies. With so many games were altered versions, with intros groups that were distributing. Others were PAL versions, who were one weird both NTSC console, with the screen out of proportion and cut.
Today the original game Playstation 1 (PS1) They are no longer produced and marketed, but fortunately we have sites like Pleasuredome, which has pictures of virtually all console games, organized by groups such as Redump, in their American versions, Japanese and European. are copies 1:1 the original CDs. With that come discovering several cool games not found at that time.
With this also came the need to save progress, settings, records, etc. nesses “new” games. I could even do some cleaning in my memory cards old. They must have games where I never continue. On the other hand there are others who I remember that were important.
As the games, the memory cards Original Sony also failed to be manufactured for a long time. But that's where the Chinese come. technology of memory card Sony certainly is not rocket science. They have measly 1MB! Today we are buying much smaller memory cards in size, but that has literally 128.000 times this ability. Make one memory card Playstation today should be something trivial and cheap. And so they are offering these Memory Card de 1MB para Playstation 1 (PS1) for a measly US $ 1,10 (R$ 4,60 when I acquired). It is less than a hamburger. I bought just five of them to get more freight, it cost R$ 15,97. They were R $ 22,97 the five cards, R $ 38,73 with freight.
