Looking to get a Vita. Any good deals? And what are it's niceties?

I really like the Playstation Plus content, it's making me want the vita more and more. That's the main reason why I want to get it.

Are saves stored on the system/SD card? Or on the carts like the 3DS.

Thanks

Some games save to the game card while other save to the memory card. There is no internal storage apart from for system updates.

Memory card are of a proprietary type and they are pretty pricey.

If you get PS+ then you will get all those games digitally so a big memory card is recommended. A nice perk of Plus is that you can back up your saves to a cloud storage and delete games to make room on the mem card and redownload the games again whenever you like as long as you're subscribed.

If you have a PS3 and Plus already you can start downloading PS+ Vita games already and then just add them to your Vita when you get one.

Damn, sounds good!

I totally forgot about the cloud storage! This is way better than saving to carts, I die to transfer save files for reasons of renting, for example.

Anyone know of any deals on the 3G? I'll check slickdeals.net but if anyone has anything better please let me know!

This deal is decent but you really need a bigger memory card than the one in it. It comes with a year of PS+ and one extra digital game, Unit 13. PS+ costs $49.99 if you buy it separately.
