this was a brilliant marketing move for Sony...

Give away these awesome titles and you get to entice people to buy 3 things at once: ps vita, memory card, and ps+ membership.

lol, and all right before the busiest shopping week of the year.


Like me, in for the white ACIII bundle( hoping someone sells this for $199 on BF) , 32gig card and PS+.

Well played Sony, well played....

Well, thanks to the 90 day return policy from Walmart when I bought the 3 games for $40, I can take those back now, since two of them were Uncharted and Gravity Rush. I'll just pick up Hot Shots on the cheap and get that $40 back.

Memory cards are not the only way Sony is making money but is the way they're trying to prevent psp level piracy. They also have said after launch that we will soon see Sandisk and the like making vita cards.



how else are they making money on vita then? Maybe other accessories, but those aren't required to actually use the system. The system itself is sold at a loss. The memory cards are a jillion percent profit. It's their main source of profit for the system. Sandisk won't be making cards any time soon.

Thanks Nerd Nostradamus for the Sandisk glimpse into the future. No one said they were making money on anything, take a look at quarterly reports of losses. They do make money on the sale of the system. Here's some math:
If a vita costs $300 to make and they sell one for $249, they made $249 of $300 on that sale.

Not a profit but they aren't reporting profits. Just large losses.



calling me a nerd, then citing Sony quarterly reports for the Vita, really? :lol:

and why the hell would we be talking about the cost of the system. no shit they get money for the system. That's understood.

"Making money" = profit, which is pretty much an understood phrase by anyone who knows English. Memory cards = profit. That was the conversation that was happening. Reading comprehension is good. Jumping in with condescension when you have no clue what's going on is bad.

Yes I have GCU so I got $21 for Gravity Rush. Also BB price matched Amazon @$46.62 for me so after tax and my GC I got from Gravity Rush only $30 cash for a 16gb card. Gotta love PS+


Ah, I have GCU, didn't realize I got a trade in bonus. I'll trade in Gravity Rush today! Never traded in at Best Buy before, you just go to customer service?

Oh, man, that is a nice selection. I'm so glad I got in on that $171 Vita bundle from Target (when they had the 3G/Wifi + 8GB card bundle for $180 minus redcard savings). I guess I'll finally crack that thing open. Problem is, I thought the 8GB card it came with would be plenty (since I wasn't planning on buying much of anything for download). But this changes things a bit ;).


I got one during that deal as well and have been loving it, but this deal makes it a must own. I did buy Tales from Space already and loved that game, but glad I get the other 5 for free. I also thought I could manage with the 8GB stick, but I guess a 32GB stick is in my future. Even that isn't going to be enough though.

I was leaning towards getting a tablet over getting a vita. This is making the decision harder.

Welcome to the PS Vita family! :bouncy:
Make sure you get a big memory card for all those games! xD


Sony is pretty smart! Throwing out top games for PS +. But in turn, they get people to purchase the vita, their memory card, and PS + 8-)

Haha well played! :applause:

They have 3 bundles for sale right now (AC3 Liberation, Black Ops Declassified, & Madden) at $249.99 each. I'm thinking black Friday they will hopefully try to compete with the big box stores and drop one of them to $199.99. That would save me $20 in tax and save me from the chaos that is Black Friday shopping. You can do it, NEWEGG! :applause:

for anyone who needs to buy a bigger memory card. Amazon has some 32 gig cards sold by a 3rd party but fulfilled by Amazon for $79.00. I think regular they run around $100.00 normally. As of about 1 hour ago when I purchased one, there were 15 more available.

sorry if this was already talked about iam at work and don't have time to browse through every page how big are the vita game files i have an 8 gb memory and already have plus do i need to upgrade or is 8gb fine ? i guess you could always save the games to the 8gb card then just swap with another card ?

You''ll barely get by with a 8GB. You can, but I recommend at least a 16GB. You will be out of room once you download the plus games.

Honestly speaking, most people are going to tell you 16 minimal, but this comes down to what you're looking for. if you want like 9+ games on your Vita, then you're going to want 16+. If you're okay with 2 or 3 at a time, 8 is plenty.

Uncharted + Gravity Daze is only about 4 gb, so you can get an idea of what I am talking about. Naturally every game will be different (Blazblue was like 4.3 or something like that...), but most of the Vita games I downloaded (most of my collection) were around a gig.

You''ll barely get by with a 8GB. You can, but I recommend at least a 16GB. You will be out of room once you download the plus games.


Depends the person, there are plenty of small Vita games that don't require a lot of space.

Of Course!

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Yes. That's what I'm planning on doing next week

That'd be a no-brainer for them. Hopefully, they can throw in a bonus like Toys R Us is doing with that 10-in-1 starter pack (really want a screen protector as well). Newegg will definitely get my business.

They'll probably do one a month, maybe two. They said Uncharted and Gravity Rush will be up there for awhile.

I'm not sure Sony will allow Newegg to lower the price. I think it is a restriction Sony (and other manufacturers) put on certain products. That's one reason why you see Target, Amazon, and other places giving gift cards or freebies with purchase. It is a way to "lower" the price while still meeting Sony's requirement.

I may not know what i'm talking about, so anyone with more knowledge, feel free to correct me.

As long as you have checked out in the PSN store, you do not have to have the games on your memory card. For those people with smaller cards, just add and delete games as needed. The only drawback that I know of is if Sony decides to remove a game from the PSN store. If you don't have it downloaded, you would never be able to get it. That being said, I think that's pretty rare.

The only thing i'm not sure about is what happens to your saved games when you delete the game off of your Vita. Do you lose the saves? I know you won't lose trophies.

Do you have to be logged into to your psn account and be on wifi all the time while using this. Since I travel with it, I still want to be able to use the games while traveling. Still some places that don't have wifi.

The way it works with the PSP/PS3 is your save files are separate from the game files. So you should be able to delete the game w/o losing your saves.

No. By default, your Vita will not even try to log in until it asks you. It's actually kind of annoying that it is logged out of PSN at some times when I want it to already be logged on.

That being said, I guess there is a possibility that PS Plus could work differently, but I doubt it. You don't have to be logged in while playing PS Plus games on a PS3.
