If I get the vita what size memory card would I need for all the games that get included with PSN+? Some of the games look interesting and I want to play them, but while the cost of the console seems ok the memory is pretty high and has kept me timid from diving in.

You can redownload any games you've "purchased" from PS+ whenever you want. You don't have to have them all on your memory card at once.

About how big is each game? My internet speed can suck sometimes.

Honestly I would get at least the 16GB one. I personally got the 32 GB one, although crazy in price, and I am glad I did. But to give you an idea, Uncharted alone is 2.7 GB. So the 4GB card would get you 1 Uncharted plus some smaller games.

you can get the 32gb for $79.99 and free shipping directly from sony on ebay [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Sony-PSVita-PlayStation-Vita-32GB-Memory-Card-32GB-MPN-PSV22041-/270962406116?pt=Digital_Camera_Memory_Cards&hash=item3f169e32e4"]http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f169e32e4[/url]

they also have the 16gb for $47.99 [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Sony-PSVita-PlayStation-Vita-16GB-Memory-Card-16GB-MPN-PSV22040-/251043424926?pt=Digital_Camera_Memory_Cards&hash=item3a735aaa9e"]http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a735aaa9e[/url]

OK so I am new to PS+, if I didnt have it last month did I miss out on those games because they are only good for November? Or did they carry over to december with no new PS Vita games?

even that 32GB card will fill up fast. remember, it formats to 29GB. once you download some full-size games, it'll fill up fast. from what i've downloaded, games range from 1-3GB. if you start filling it up w/ movies, tv shows or music, obviously you'll want to get the 32GB card.

I've got both the 32GB and a 16GB card that I'm keeping for spare in case, but Sony have recently added wireless connectivity to a PC using the Content Manager which makes it a lot easier to backup and restore downloaded games without needing to keep them on your Vita at all times.
The Vita is certainly a great buy if you want a decent experience on the move. Also with a few cross buy games out already you may already have a collection waiting for you to download.

So I am kinda liking the deal at Gamestop where I can get a vita for $180 used with a free 1 year warranty. Should I avoid a used one? I look at the bundles and yeah I would like AC3:L but I would need a bigger memory card and this seems like a good deal. It is a 3g/wifi combo and looks in pretty good shape. I have a stack of games I might trade in as well since I can get 50% extra for trading towards the vita,

i wouldnt be too worried about a used one - it's probably still in good shape. just check it out before you buy.

Yeah the one year thing warranty is doing a lot to placate my fears.

honestly 3g on the Vita is almost useless, all it's good for is keeping leader boards up to date when not on wifi, you can't do much else with it

So I bought it, besides Black Ops do any games have a active multiplayer community?

[/quote]ugh, I heard the Black Ops game for the vita is atrocious

anyway, actually answering your question, most of the vita games with multiplayer seem pretty active from my experience

Looks like you already have wipeout which is good, also if you like fighters you could grab the PS3 version of PSA:BR which comes with the Vita version for free, with cross play it allows you to fight against PS3 players too so the community on that is pretty healthy right now.

Have to admit I've not done too much online with my Vita, but I do love Need For Speed, which with the online it keeps all the leaderboards updated (also against PS3 friends) and I believe it has 4 player online on the Vita.

I think I am getting PSA for Christmas, I hope they do more of the dual pack thing with PS3/Vita games. I have heard a lot of good stuff about this need for speed. The original most wanted has remained my favorite throughout the years.

As with all types of storage media, get the most capacity you can afford - you will thank yourself for it later. I would go for 32GB at least in any phone/game console.

NFSMW is probably my favorite overall game on the Vita as far as bang for the buck and enjoyment. What is also cool is it ties in with the retail game on the PS3 (it is not a cross play, have to buy each game seperately) but any experience points I get on either version carries over to the other version, but not progress. So on the PS3 version I am only like 22% complete on the SP, but already have every Most Wanted race unlocked waiting for me, since I got so far on the Vita version. That is a pretty slick little feature. I would have no doubt preferred though buying the PS3 version and also getting the Vita version, even if they charged an extra $10-$20. But it is a great game for the Vita, no doubt.

When I had my vita the 8GB card was simply not enough. Now that PS1 classics are working it would be even more of a nightmare for me at 8GB.

Next year when I get another Vita I'll definitely try to snag a 32GB in the sale. The prices of the cards is utterly painful though, wish the Chinese would somehow clone them :p
