4.0 out of 5 stars An expensive necessity for the likes of PS+ 23 Mar 2013
Edition:16GB Model|Verified Purchase
A memory card for the likes of the Vita is a hard thing to review – after all you’ll need one at some point to save game data at the least (the Vita doesn’t have memory for this built in). For this purpose the 4GB card that Sony bundles in with a lot of Vita consoles is good enough, as save games don’t require a massive amount of memory.
However, if you are looking to download full games or downloadable content (DLC) you are really going to need something more than a paltry 4GB. With the (frankly brilliant) advent of Playstation + (PS+), a larger memory card becomes a necessity.
So, having PS+, I came to the point where I required a card larger than the 4GB that came bundled with the console- downloading the likes of Uncharted: Golden Abyss takes up 3485MB!

Of course, I baulked at the price of the memory cards- like everyone else that has posted a review so far- as we have been spoiled by the pricing of Secure Digital cards and such like over the last few years.
Apparently, Sony went with their own proprietary cards for the Vita to ‘ensure a stable user experience for all Vita buyers’ (which may be true) though it’s widely regarded that the reason was to try and combat piracy which plagued the PSP. However, in doing so they closed the memory card market for the Vita to themselves, meaning there is no competition and prices are high.
I bought the 16GB card as I couldn't settle myself spending sixty quid on a 32GB card – it’s just too much.

The card arrived the next day in an Amazon cardboard envelope package which was suitable for the item. The memory card is stored within a sealed card (as per the Amazon product picture). Cutting along the edge opens and reveals an instruction sheet hidden inside and the card held in a plastic sleeve.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not really much to say really. You put it in. You save games and data onto it. Does exactly what it says on the tin!!

Just hope that one day Sony stop developing proprietary memory media and charging the earth for it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but Neccessary 22 Feb 2012
By Bronn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Edition:16GB Model
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sony has once again opted for expensive proprietary memory with these new Vita flash memory cards. These cards will
be neccessary for storing the games themselves if you decide to go down the digital route and purchase games directly
from the PSN Store, as well as the game's save files, and future updates or patches. They'll also be used for any photos,
music or video you want on your Vita because the device itself has no built in memory.

Considering the maximum memory card available right now is just 16GB, it's likely you'll need to purchase multiple cards
if you want games from the PSN Store, and also want your media on the Vita (current games range from 200mb to 3GB in size).
The main issue is that the cards are overpriced, i'm fairly confident that cheaper brands will appear, but Sony should
know better. Another problem is that the cards are tiny and easy to lose, and switching between cards is very fiddly
(you'll probably need to switch between cards if you need more space or if a save file is on a different card, but also
switching cards allows you to use different PSN ID's - it's currently the only way of using more than one PSN ID).

But if your not going to have any media on your Vita and will be purchasing all your games via retail in boxed copies,
you can pretty much sidestep these overpriced cards. Each Vita game will come on its own memory card with enough space
to store your save data. This won't work for games which explicitly require a memory card like Uncharted Golden Abyss.

So although buying at least one Vita memory card is necessary, depending on how you will buy your games, how much media
you want on your Vita, and whether or not you want to manage multiple PSN IDs will influence what size card you need.

3.0 out of 5 stars How does one review a memory card ? 21 Mar 2014
Edition:16GB Model|Verified Purchase
Well it does what it should do. Hasn't broken on me yet (3 days in!)
Stupidly expensive but if you have a Vita and PS+ you really have no choice.

By K. Trebell TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Edition:16GB Model|Verified Purchase
I purchased this Vita memory card as I wanted to be able to take advantage of the many downloads available with PS+ and still be able to keep some of my favourite games on the go.

The price is a bit high but not too bad now. I'd definitely say this is the minimum you want. I had an 8 gig card with my Vita and it was pretty much filled by the 10 games that came with it.

With this and use of the PC transfer software I'm finding I have enough space to keep a good few things on the go as long as I swap things onto the PC from time to time.

Definitely recommended.

Fills up quicker than you'd like, but value for money (at the time of purchasing) decreased with size, so this seemed like the best option.
