I have no problems with a 4gb card, and I have LBP vita, hotline miami dragon fantasy book toros friend network, super stardust delta, and I have had lots of demos downloaded, I have no problems with it using physical media for a lot of my games. That being said if you have a 4gb card you can't download games like persona 4 or resistance as they take up like 3gb. Also I see some high end 32gb SD cards costing like 50-80$, so I think Sony just needs to drop the price of the vita itself worldwide.

It's not that bad. I remember the days when a 1gb thumb drive would set you back at least 30 dollars.

You have to compare it with the state of the market nowadays, not 10 years ago.

For purely physical copies 4gb for saves etc and apps is more then enough... but one Psone classic and you'll tear through your memory.

I downloaded FF7/8/9 and I took out and entire 32gb card o.o

Yes, 4GB is enough if you're only buying physical games.

If you're fine with just playing one PSP game or one PS1 Classic at a time then you might make it even if I wouldn't recommend it. I'd say 8GB is minimum for someone going all physical with some occasional download.

I got a 32 GB class 10 MicroSDHC from Amazon (not a seller) for like $21.

What bothers me is MicroSD cards are physically smaller than Vita memory cards. It wouldn't surprise me if they're just MicroSD with a different shell and an extra pin(?). Sony could totally come out with an adapter, charge ~$20 for it, and everyone would be happy, Sony would still make a lot of money off of a $0.01 piece of plastic, because people would rather spend $40 than $80+

If you get physical games that require download patches upwards of 400 MB then you could be quickly screwed.

8 GB is safer.

That's what I was thinking, even if one commits to buying physical 100%, patches are going to eat into that storage over time.

But that day is not today.

Hence the problem.
So if Nintendo changed the name of the Wii - U, would they be pulling a U-Wii?

Get double the size that you think will be fine for you.

...is my personal rule on memory cards.
