Hope you got more than a 4GB memory card for your PS Vita, 'cause Killzone: Mercenary has a huge day-one patch

ps vita 4gb memory card

Killzone: Mercenary -- which launches today in Europe and on September 10 in North America -- will require a day-one patch, reports The Sixth Axis. That's not that uncommon, but the size of the patch is a little troubling, especially if you're buying a digital copy of the game. 

When you load up the game on your PlayStation Vita, you'll be prompted to download the patch. It's a 1190MB patch meant for general stability fixes and performance optimizations. That's quite a hefty patch. Combined with the size of the full game download, which is 3.3GB, the patch brings the total size of the game to about 4.5GB -- more than the standard 4GB PS Vita memory card could hold. Time to go upgrade if you haven't.

Killzone: Mercenary picks up where the first KillZone left off as you play through a lot of the events from the Killzone trilogy
