Saved data from PlayStation® format software

Saved data from PlayStation® format software is saved on internal memory cards created on the storage media (Memory Stick™ media or system storage) that contains the software.

About internal memory cards

Two internal memory cards (for MEMORY CARD slots 1 and 2) are created automatically when you start PlayStation® format software that was downloaded from PlayStation®Store. The memory cards are saved using the same name as the PlayStation® format software.


The maximum amount of saved data that can be stored in one internal memory card is 15 blocks. The number of blocks required to save data varies depending on the software in use.
