I believe this is a daily sale so it will end in about 24 hours.  From what I could tell this is a good price and had not been posted yet.  I personally do not have a Vita and do not keep up with prices too much though.

Personally, I have been looking for a vita memory card deals. I am thinking that 16GB is pretty much all the space I would want, too.

Not a bad deal. I would prefer maybe a 32GB at $50 because I head it is more difficult switching between memory cards on a Vita than  on the PSP.

Pretty good price (sad I know) and I feel this is the sweet spot for Vita memory.

 

With all of the PS plus games, sure it's going to be a tight fit along with psp and ps1 downloads. But you can tackle a bunch of sngle player games 3 at a time (to keep a variety) and then swap out the ones you finish for new ones. Should be plenty of room for the rest of your library/new games that crop up on PS plus.

 

I thought about splurging on a 64 gb but there's so many PS plus games I can just finish and delete. Don't need the entire catalog there if I'm not going to play them all.

If you have ps+ it's not. I got a 32 gb one used at Gamestop a while back for 50 something and don't regret it for a second.

In for one, thanks. I've spent a year now with just a 4GB card and though I tend to only play one game at a time, I've always wanted a little more space to be able to download PS+ titles and check them out without having to delete something else first.

 

Couldn't bring myself to spend more than $25 on more memory for the VIta so this will be just right for me.

I just went ahead for it. 16GB is all I would want for me is what I meant. I don't download many games nor will I need to here.

Thanks for posting the deal.

really good price, but almost all my vita games are from PS+ and my 16gb card filled up a while ago and I haven't done the delete/download thing.  One of the reasons why I tend to play my 3ds more than my vita, while the latter is gorgeous the games are pretty meh and the whole card thing is an absolute fiasco.  Its pretty much just a PS4 remote play screen for me at this point, and Sony has said recently they will not be making many (any?) new first party games exclusively for the vita.

 

For $25 I'd say go for it if you have a tiny card, but if you think you are gonna play your vita a LOT maybe hold off for a 32gb sale, swapping cards is a pain and they are tiny and easy to lose.  Sony massively, massively screwed up not using SD cards.  Has Fuck all to do with piracy too, the 3DS uses sd cards and isn't widely pirated.

I'm debating on just selling my vita and getting a PS tv to play them on. Remote play doesn't work great and the fact that they aren't supporting this thing officially at all is just sad.

Yeah, the 32gb was like 40-50 before on sale, so I would prefer the larger size too.

I'd love to see their internal research showing how much $ they might have saved by avoiding piracy with their proprietary memory cards.. vs. how much $ they have lost because they scared people away from the system with its super-expensive memory cards. And yeah, the 3DS seems to be doing fine despite using standard SD cards.

As far as I know, it is not difficult to switch cards as long as both cards have games for the same PSN account. If you are switching accounts, or even regions, then I heard it is a pain.

Not too happy that Sony has pretty much dumped this thing. I went to a Walmart and what did I see? An empty case where Vita games had been. They're not selling them at that store; possibly others as well. Frustrating as all hell.

 

Anyway, I'm tempted to get a card, but I won't be getting money for a few days so I fear I'll have to miss out on the sale. 16GB would *probably* be enough, but 32GB would be better.

What are people going to put on a 16GB card? I went to Gamestop and there were maybe five Vita games. Do you guys have a lot of pictures or music or something?

I got a Vita this month, but have been digitally hoarding free games in my PSN account through PS Plus for years. All those games are downloaded to the card.

Also, my Vita came with a code for Borderlands 2 which is a huge download.

I just use the PS3 to store Vita games until I want to play them.

Lots of online downloads. The system doesn't just play PS Vita games; it runs the lion's share of PSP and PSOne games as well.

It was kinda strange how Sony has treated the Vita. They are really selling out on its features with PS4 but nothing else besides that. I didnt see anything announced at E3 besides Grim Fandango for Vita

It goes great with PS Plus.  Two to three games a month, I've gotten several really great ones in the past year for the Vita - and discounts.  In general, if you have a Vita, downloadable is the way to go - which means you need space.  I like physical media in general, but the way they did the slot in the Vita, it is just a hassle to change out.  16 GB has proven to be very roomy for me.  You have almost the whole PSP library (there are many gems in there, the Capcom Arcade Collections are standouts for me - great on the go), and Vita games which can be a challenge to find at retail at times.

As far as I know, it is not difficult to switch cards as long as both cards have games for the same PSN account. If you are switching accounts, or even regions, then I heard it is a pain.

The problem with switching cards is that you have to shut the system down to do it.  You can't just hot swap them while it's running.  Then, when you restart it has to rebuild its database.  It's not the worst process ever, but it isn't very streamlined or convenient.  And yes, these cards fill up so fast.

You don't put the physical copies of the games on the memory cards.  You just put those in the system and play them.  You put games you download from PSN on the memory cards.

Good price but I'd still recommend going with a 64 GB.  And the price per G is cheaper if you get them from SuperUFO http://www.superufo....an_Version.html.

 

With the PS+ and PSP games, I'm on my 2nd 64 GB.

I know Sony wanted to use their own memory card for whatever reasons *$$$$$*cough* but it feels ridiculous paying $25 for 16GB's when just recently there has been 64GB SD cards for the same price..

What section were you in?  I've never seen so few Vita games at my Gamestop.  But really the memory card is for the large library of digital games available.  Those dwarf the # of physical games available and quite a few are very good.

Oh man, the Vita has digital games?!

Also, PSP/PS1 games are awful, so no one cares about those.

I just got the BL2 bundle and I really want something bigger than the 8GB BUT I'm doing a decent job downloading, playing and then deleting the games. No need to keep them all stored when I can't play them all at once. Plus P4G owns my life atm, I don't know if I really need this 16GB for $25. If it was 32GB somehow I'd be all over it.

 

I don't know, I think I'll hold out for 16GB at $20 or less on clearance. So many stores at clearing out their Vita stuff I feel like its got to happen soon. Been seeing clearance 4GB/8GB so much 16GB has to be on the way.

 

Hopefully Sony announces a price drop at Gamescom, 16GB for $24.99 and 64GB incoming for $59.99 ideally

Thanks for pointing the deal out.  I'm flying to Japan, so I am putting the Game Of Thrones Series on my Vita to watch on the plane.  This will definitely help out with that.
