Plus a misleading description.

From Kotaku: 'At least one gamer is pissed at Sony for a small, but misleading Vita description' (and yes, another weird restriction on the handheld).

In addition to the 100 Apps limit on the PS Vita, there's another small -but weird- restriction on the handheld.

As spotted by a Kotaku reader, it looks like you can only store 4,000 songs to play offline on your Vita memory card.

Now, here's the issue: the product description on the Vita's 32 GB memory card isn't entirely accurate...

From the article:

According to the box, the card can hold over 9,000 songs:

But as Lewis points out, the Vita stopped him at 4,000 songs:

"Naturally, I contacted Sony customer support," Lewis said. "Talking to two different representatives, I was first told there was no limit, then when I was proven right they told me to buy another memory stick for the rest of the music. No help, no reason why there is this arbitrary limitation."

Sony's website confirms the restriction. You can only save 4,000 songs to use offline on your machine.

While it's true that technically the memory card could hold 32 gigabytes worth of music, this is a propriety piece of hardware—in other words, you can only use it on the Vita. So why does the memory card's product description say that you can save up to 9,136 songs? This might not be a huge deal to most customers, but for people like Lewis, who bought two memory cards just for this purpose, it's no small problem.

What do you think about that?
