Well I'm finally running out of space for my vita games and don't like deleting older ones. Where do you guys buy your memory cards from? They all seem expensive

My 4GB was packaged with my Vita, and my 32GB was bought on Amazon. There's pretty much no way to avoid paying a lot for Vita memory.

Yeah I got a 4gb with my vita but I also got final fantasy X/x2 so it got filled in one go. My 8gb is finally full now so looks like I'll just get one of Amazon. Thanks! :)

Careful with which size you get. The bigger ones are notorious for failing. I recommend a 16 GB.
All that is what is and will be

Slight correction.

There is no "normal" way to save to card outside of Sony's expensive proprietary cards. However there are means to use normal SD cards provided you had a hacked Vita and a special adapter.

Unless the OP already hacked their vita the second option probably isn't an option since you need to be on like 3.60 firmware to hack the vita plus it uses up the cartridge slot when in use. I really hate how Sony decided to use proprietary cards AGAIN which are hard to find and super expensive which gets worse when you compound it by the fact a 128GB micro sd card costs $20 and game sizes keep increasing. The amount of money they lost on this decision in terms of hardware sales, digital game sales, and other things probably destroys any profits they thought they we're going to make on these things.

The Vita is hackable on higher firmwares, and has been this way for some time now. 3.60 is still the magic number, but my Vita is 3.68 and is hacked.

3.69, however, has no hacks for it currently.

Thats good to know I barely play my vita anymore, got a lot more use out of my 3ds and love my switch which both have pretty big hacking communities but I was thinking of getting a vita slim and hacking it just to use the sd2vita since I still have the old phat model and only a 32GB memory card but at least I won't have to go s/n hunting looking for a specific firmware. Can you spoof the firmware up to 3.69 or is there a way to get access to the store from 3.68?
