    PS Vita Questions

    I have some questions about the memory cards.

    1. You buy a physical game, play it on your vita, and you save the game. So that is the game saving data and your progress. That's not the memory card saving the whole game on the card, right? Or do the vita games have their own memory storage?

    2. I read the 32 GB memory card can store up to 8-16 games. Does that include music and movies or is that just games without extras?

    3. I see that even if you buy mutiple 8 gb cards you still end up spending the same for the 32 GB. I can get a 32 GB right now for $80. Is a 32 GB card worth $80? I'm not an expert on external memory, that's why I'm asking you guys.

    Thank you.

    1.I'm pretty sure the memory card saves all stuff.
    2. Or 24 movies, 9,136 songs, or 6,400
    Depends on what you want.
    3. You plan on buying digital downloads? Then go for it you'll need most games are like 1-4gbs
    If plan on just buying physicals an 8gb should suffice for now..
    Hope I hope you out a bit :/

    I have an 8gb card. the only full games i have on it are Gravity Rush and a few small minigames.

    When you buy a physical copy of the game, only the saved data and updates are stored on your memory card. you need the actual game card inside the Vita to play it.

    I dont know about how much of what you can store on the memory card i never really payed any attention to that.

    And if you plan on getting a lot of stuff off the PSN or with PS+, then i would definately go for the 32gb card as youre gonna use up a lot of room with those freebies.

    1. So the memory card saves the whole game and not just save game data?
    2. I have a 8 GB already, but yes, I will be downloading some games digital. I will use the 8 GB for physical games and the 32 GB for digital games.
    3. Yes, I am going to get that 32 GB memory card if it doesn't go out of stock. In gamestop and other places it's $100. I'll take a break where I can get one.

    I think I did good. I got one for $80 before they ran out of stock.

    Edit:
    There's a listing on Ebay for around $80. Here is the link:

    You better hurry before they run out! There's only 5 left!

    So when they introduce 8GB game cards you'll only be able to fit 4-8 games on 32GB, by then they should have 64GB cards though.

    Good lord! They need to slash the prices of these memory cards! Cut it by 50%!

    youre kinda right.

    When it comes to games that you already own the physical copy of, the memory card does not install everything off the game card. I have the physical copy of Uncharted and theres only 95mbs of information for that game stored on the memory card.
