Yes you do

don't waste time with a 4 or 8 gig crad those are total rip offs for what they offer and will run out fast

get a 16 or even better a 32GB

Uh I'm pretty sure you don't need a 16 or 32 GB card. If your buying the physical copy's and not downloading them digitally, an 8 GB should be fine I would think.

I remember reading somewhere that if you installed/downloaded Uncharted via the store it's like 3GB's, but if you bought the physical copy then the save is not even 100 MB. If someone can verify that then I don't see why you wouldn't just get the physical copy...

Yeah 8gb is going to be plenty enough for me considering I buy physical copies.

If you buy physical copy's a 4GB will be fine and you will never fill it with just game saves.

^ Of course the save file is less 1than 100 Mb. Save files are tiny. If you have any PC games look at the save files for those: a few mb each, as much as an mp3 maybe.

Pikachu's logic is severely flawed. Buy the lowest card you can get away with. They're all overpriced, it doesn't make it better to buy a higher capacity more expensive card that you don't need just because it's a lower price per GB.

I would definitely advise getting a mem card. Even a 4gb will do just for saves and small psn download only games
