    Re: in the wild

    It is actually a headline

    However:

    A user over at NeoGaf has posted the first picture of PS Vita memory cards. The memory cards in the picture come in four variants – 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB. If anyone was wondering what they might look like and how much space they can carry, now you know.

    He's actually got it - it's not 'vaporware'. They've borrowed 'in the wild' from its usual context of wildlife - seen living a normal free life, not in a zoo or kept as a pet.

    I wouldn't have come anywhere near guessing that.

    I still don't get it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: in the wild

    It's not vaporware (you mean you didn't know that term?)Vaporware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It's out there, running free; it really exists.

    I think.

    Re: in the wild

    I would think that when a company is developing something, but still keeping it in house that is one thing. But if the product has been allowed out (into the wild) that means it is a real product.
