No way amazon would do that. They aren't loose like that .. Then again its easy to scam amazon and say you have a defective/didn't recieve item.


Lol I never got how ppl could 'scam' Amazon like that... I had a package that didn't show up til a month later and I tried talking to CS about it, all they told me was to contact UPS about it since its their problem and they just gave me $10 promotional credits to keep me 'satisfied' ~_~.

I've heard of people at my old high school intentionally saying that they never received their package at all and receive a full replacement free of charge (so two items for the price of one), but I always found that hard to believe because Amazon provides a tracking number? The world works in strange ways lmfao @_@

Not to mention that's mail fraud and you can go to prison for it. They take it VERY seriously.

"Possible Punishments for Mail Fraud Crimes

Mail fraud, a felony, carries a sentence of up to five years in prison and/or fines of up to $250,000 when individuals are involved and up to 30 years in prison and/or $1,000,000 in fines when a financial institution is involved."

Obviously there are extreme cases of mail fraud and it all depends on the situation. But if you are purposely doing this, (and often)like those kids, you could really screw yourself.

Grabbed a 16gb card.

With the $5 off $25, plus I had $5 credit from Hitman. The email amazon sent said that the price dropped so they gave me $5 promo credit. $38.65 shipped for me so not bad. Have to deal with these prices for now, but no way I'm buying a 32gb right now.

If anyone wants my 4gb card I have one for $10 shipped.

One man can't change the world blah blah etc. Welcome to reality. :cold:

History Begs to differ. Statistically it's very unlikely however, we have lots of stories in history where 1 man did change the world.

Granted, someone stealing an extra memory card is 99.999% likely not going to be the causality that does it.

I decided to just bite on the Toys R Us promotion of buy one, get one at 50% off. Bought Far Cry 3 for Xbox 360 for $59.99, and got a $59.99 16 GB Vita memory card for $29.99. Figured it was the best I could do, and Far Cry is definitely worth the $60.


My store only had the 4 and 8 gb ones :(. But I just remembered I have my daily deal gc to use so I may go get 2-8 gb cards which would be 44.98 plus tax minus 20 for the daily deal. So my oop would be about 35 for the 16 gb. Damn Sony and their crap.

Even if they get away with it at the moment. Still not smart to brag about it online. You never know who might be surfing the sites.

Thanks for the heads up. Ordered the 32 GB card. Came out to $82.xx after tax using the $5 FB credit.

I feel like a sucker. :(

Yeah, I think I'll muddle along with the 8GB for now (that came with mine). When the 32GB approaches this price ($45) I might bite - though that is still too much :bomb:.

This can be had for $41 and the 32gb for $76.50 with the $5 off $25. My 16gb came really fast, going to transfer everything over now.

I've got $35 in BB credit.. tempting.

Edit: $81 for the 32 gig... $45 out of pocket for one..... hmmm. If only they had the jacked up trade-in prices.

Ended up getting the 16GB while it was still $45 (Deal's now dead again, though the 32GB price is still active). I might as well get the cheaper one that still has plenty of space, and put what I would've spent on the 32GB towards something like Persona 4 Golden. And if the 32GB drops in price and I'm running low on space, then I'll consider upgrading. For the time being, I've got no problem just sticking with physical media for the big-file-size (3GB) games.

Sony still has this for $47.99, people should submit this price to Amazon and hopefully they will drop the price again:

Okay, for Vita owners I have a question. I may be getting a Vita bundle soon, I'm still on the fence but thinking about it, (so it will come with 4GB) and at present all I will be playing is Zero's Escape: Virtue's Last Reward and P4: The Golden. Might sign up for PS+, not really sure. Will probably move some of my PSOne classics and PS Store purchases to my Vita from my PS3 if possible.

What size memory card would be ideal? Do I need the 32 or can I get by with something smaller? If so, which size? None of my friends have a Vita yet, so I'm thinking about what I should be looking for.

Add up the size of your psn purchases that you plan to have on your vita. That's really the best gage (leave room for future purchases in your math). You can get by with the 4 gb for a while until you decide on PS+ and if you want digital games.

Hey there (love your sn I'm also a collegegamer lol)
Anyway I got a 16GB at launch, and it's full :|
I download a lot of PS1 classics and PSP games however. Also, PlayStation Plus filled it up pretty quick.
If you intend to just download a handful of games and not get PlayStation Plus, a 8GB will be fine....HOWEVER if you plan to download a good amount, save money by investing in a 16GB or 32Gb. (a 32GB isn't really necessary though unless you plan to make most of your purchases digitally)
If you want to make sure you have plenty of room and not kill your budget with a 32GB card a 16GB should be enough.
Hope this helps!

Okay cool thanks. I'll take both of those things in to account when deciding on which size card I'll get.
