That's a Mighty Big Box for a Mighty Small Memory Card

Video games and the consoles we play them on may use a significant amount of materials. But even when going digital, it seems we can't get away from the waste.

Reddit user firstmarker ordered a PS Vita memory card. The Vita is a handheld. Memory cards for it are not large. And little tiny memory cards are a great way to store dozens of digitally-distributed games. No fuss, no waste, no physical space. Should be easy!

Or, you know, not. Overkill on packaging is nothing too unusual in the world of online ordering, but for something as tiny and durable as an SD card, that is a rather impressive waste of space.

Finally got my Vita memory card in the mail! Wait, uhh... [Reddit]
