According to recent rumors, Sony was forced to reduce the memory capacity of the new PlayStation Vita.
But although the final system specifications have yet to be officially revealed, a Sony Japan executive told Develop that the RAM has never been cut. The rumor spread when the unit was first announced and some sources said it boasted 512MB memory. Then, when development kits began to circulate, it was believed the system only had 256MB internal memory. However, the 512MB was never actually confirmed and for that matter, neither was the 256MB. We don't know how much memory it has; all we know is that Sony says the RAM has never been reduced. As Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said: "Do not believe everything you read on the Internet."
Maybe we should all just wait until the specs have been revealed. That way, we don't get involved in such misguided speculation.
