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.
Amazon currently has the 32GB on sale for $82. That is almost 25% off it's normal price of $100.

you can get the 32gb for $79.99 and free shipping directly from sony on ebay http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f169e32e4

they also have the 16gb for $47.99 http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a735aaa9e

but i would definitely get the 16 or 32, I got the 8gb memory card when i got my vita and it's full right now :/ I don't even have that many games

How is the battery life? I am thinking of getting the 32GB and doing games and that music pass.

If i recall correctly the vitas battery life is about the same as the 3ds.

no, I have both and I'd say the Vita's battery is a little better than the 3ds

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.
