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.
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.
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,
