Buy 16GB PlayStation Vita Memory Card

Buy 16GB PlayStation Vita Memory Card




Updated 2/13/13: My entire review is not visible unless you look at this in comment form, I apologize for the inconvenience. I also apologize for the massive length of this post, however appreciate everyone's support.

If you plan on using your Playstation Vita for game saves ONLY, then this is what the 4GB card is for. But let's face it, there will be people that want to revisit their PSP library, there will be people taking pictures, or putting their music on their vita to listen to with some games. For $16.99-20 bucks it's affordable, but it's the worst storage to price ratio, as expected.

But, let's look at the size of the Vita games:

There are only a few games you could afford to download with a 16GB card, and with videos, you will find yourself deleting them after you download them. Good luck downloading Uncharted on one game card, or BlazBlue, it's not worth paying $60 and $55(With the $46.84 price point) to be able to avoid physical media. And the Tester videos, just watch them on your PS3 or get a 32GB card.

They really need to release higher capacity cards, 32GB is plenty for a lot of downloaded content, but thank god for physical media so you can get more for your Memory Cards. However I am not a fan of wasting bandwith and having to delete/download constantly and I hate buying multiple cards to get around this, 16GB should be plenty for most casual gamers that do not plan on putting many games from the PSP, especially if you are going the physical route for Vita games. However, if you are going digital, 4-8 games at a time seems like a fair amount since most people do not touch a game once they beat it, however you have the option to re-download the games at any time.

Star Rating:

1 for the Price, once this is around 29.99 this will be more reasonable.

2 for the Storage Capacity, it's a decent amount
