PlayStation MemCard Pro (Memory Card)

WARNING: Current batches of MemCard Pros cannot be used together in the same system with each other.  Due to a recently discovered flaw, which can cause an OLED display issue and can cause it to stop working, we suggest getting a new unit that has a fix for this problem.  If you plan to use 2 MemCard Pro's in the same system, please contact for a replacement.  

The wait is over! No more piles of tiny memory cards for the PlayStation 1 with a mere 15 blocks on each card.

Did you know that there are games that use a whole standard Memory Card for just 1 save?

The MemCard PRO was designed and assembled by 8BitMods, and it's a brand new offering for the PlayStation 1 that solves the problem of storing your game's saves forever.

High Tech

Using the latest components and powered with FPGA technology, the MemCard PRO offers an almost infinite amount of blocks for your PlayStation 1, from a single slot! An ESP32 module provides an incredible amount of power, with a dual-core processor running at 240MHz.

Endless Storage

MemCard PRO can store "virtual memory cards" on a standard microSD card of any size. Everything from 1GB to 1TB works!
Each gigabyte of storage on your microSD card equals to a whopping 8192 memory cards! Yes you've read that right! A 1GB microSD can store 122,880 blocks of PlayStation 1 game saves!

But it doesn't stop there! This little device is packed with features!

A Memory Card with WiFi!?

MemCard PRO can also connect to your WiFi network, to provide extra cool features! At this moment you can browse and control the Memory Cards on your microSD card, through an intuitive Web User Interface. It can also update its firmware over the internet, or through the microSD card slot.

Did we mention there is a super-bright OLED display on MemCard PRO? The display can show you the mounted memory card, along with more information like read and write access indicators. It can also show the card's name, which you can set through the WebUI.

PSIO & TerraOnion MODE compatible

If you have a modern PlayStation 1 Optical Disc Emulator, it's about to get even more exciting.

MemCard PRO can seamlessly communicate with the PSIO and TerraOnion MODE and automatically mount the memory card specifically for that game! If it's the first time you're running the game, it will automatically create 8 virtual memory cards for that specific game, and even show the game's name on the display! 

There are plans to add more features to MemCard PRO, and everything will be added for free, through a firmware update.

Launch Features:

  • OLED display that shows the mounted memory card, read/write access indicators and network information
  • Supports any microSD card, from 1GB to 1TB. Every GB of storage has enough space for approximately 8000 cards
  • WiFi connectivity and remote features through a WebUI
  • Switch the active channel through a game pad combination or with the card's physical buttons
  • Easy wireless network setup from a wireless device's web browser, by connecting to its access point
  • Supports PSIO & TerraOnion MODE commands for automatic loading, game info and remote control
  • High quality manufacturing with an injection molded shell and hard gold plated fingers

Planned Features:*

  • Load the stored memory cards remotely through the WebUI and manage individual blocks
  • Local and Cloud backup functionality through file rotation
  • Share saves with your friends
  • Download saves and memory cards directly to your MemCard PRO from a URL
  • ... more surprises!


While the memory card works on PlayStation 2 as a normal PlayStation 1 card does (i.e. to save when playing PlayStation 1 games), later Slim models of PlayStation 2, and the PlayStation 3 adapter are not compatible, without modifying the PS2 or the PS3 Adapter.

*Planned are based on the capabilities of the MemCard PRO hardware, and may not be implemented.

    Great to see new hardware supporting old PS1 hardware

    Posted by Siu Tung Chow on Aug 3rd 2021

    Plugged it in to my memory card slot, updated firmware and just works. OLED screen is a very nice touch displaying game titles and Xstation. These hardware and accessories for old retro consoles are great to see available to purchase. Expensive? Yes, but not unreasonable as it takes a lot to mass produce a quality product to back it up with community support. I gladly support them whenever I can to keep seeing more innovation to make a legendary retro console experience even better!

    Good, but Flawed

    Posted by Jason K. on Jul 30th 2021

    For decades, man has dreamed of being able to have multiple saves of games like Tecmo’s Deception and Civilization II without taking out a mortgage for extra memory cards. This dream is finally a reality, as the MemCard Pro is the last memory card anyone will ever need for their PS1. It’s also somewhat of a pain to use in practice, as the wi-fi feature is finicky and the file management options lack finesse.

    This is worth a purchase, but be ready for some leg work to get things set up the way you want them.

    Fantastic Product

    Posted by Jarrod on Jul 26th 2021

    This memory card is a must have for gamers with an xstation setup. I found a 8 GB sd card to use with it and will have way more than enough space for my PS1 collection. I haven't got around to using the other various features yet, but just the convenience of only having one card and the ability to copy states from the SD to PC is worth every penny!

    Great Memory Card with unlimited capacity

    Posted by Weaver Ng on Jul 25th 2021

    The Memory Card Pro is packaged very nicely and it comes with instructions to setup the card. Once I formatted my sd card to Fat32 and downloaded the latest firmware, I can access the many features to create as many memory cards as I need. As an added bonus, I can access all game saves using a web interface to manage all my game saves. It's the ultimate memory card for XStation owners. Highly recommended.

    This is the last and only memory card you will ever need. No more searching through stacks of memory cards. With an ODE it automatically makes a virtual memory card for each game and then you can just copy your old games over to the memcard pro. Very easy to use!

    Exactly what you need!

    Posted by Redwolfy on Jul 25th 2021

    I recently got this card to use with my newly installed Xstation. Now with over 900 games ready to be played I won't ever run out of storage for the countless saves I will need. Truly a must buy!

    The last memory PS1 card you’ll need

    Posted by David A on Jul 24th 2021

    The launch features alone make it a must buy for owners of a large physical or digital game library. The smallest SD card can give you more than enough memory cards to never need another.

    If playing on a PS1 with PS1 controllers, you can use button combinations to switch cards, removing the need to get up to change digital memory card.

    Looking forward to the PSIO update that adds native support, but it still works great without that.

    Only major thing missing besides that is the ability to write to the card via the web interface.

    Highly recommend this card!

    PlayStation memcard pro

    Posted by Never need another PS1 memory card again! on Jul 23rd 2021

    Works great! Even works on PS2 (as a PS1 card for PS1 games only). Even the tiniest Micro SD card becomes almost endless PS1 cards with this device. Super pleased!

    Works perfectly, does exactly what it says. Super nice not having to swap out memory cards anymore.
