Considering SD cards are slowly trudging up to 64GB, it’s pretty impressive to hear good old Sony’s getting ready to drop a 2TB Memory Stick XC. The XC series will have the same form factors as Sony’s current PRO series, also featuring support for MagicGate content protection technology as well as Access Control function, currently available in the PRO series.
According to Sony, the XC range will use the exFAT file storage system, which is far and away better than the antiquated FAT12/16/32.
Of course this is Sony, the grandfather of proprietary formats so just how much this will cost is anyone’s guess, but is likely to be in the let-me-sell-my-kidney range. There’s also no word on availability, though we suspect this is still a long way off.
