CrunchRumor: Sony launching 16GB Memory Stick at CES?

We hate rumors. No, wait, we love them. So do you, that’s why you’re here. We’ve got one that we’ve been hearing about that will bore most of you, but some of you will love.

The word is that at CES in January, Sony is going to be dropping 16GB Memory Stick Pros, doubling the current top-end of 8GB. If true, then Memory Stick might not be a back-seat format anymore, and might get a chair at the grown-up’s table.

Excuse the metaphor mixing, but that’s all there is to this right now. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see. Since it was at CES last year that Sony dropped the 8GB cards, this might actually be true.
