Problem is that the uses are different and you are bound to burn through a 4 GB PSV memcard faster than you are bound to burn through a PSP one. That, and the fact that you aren't forced to use propietary memcards on the PSP~.

IMO 4GB will be plenty of space for storing game saves and for PSN game downloads. One would run into issues with downloading retail games, but for the most part it is cheaper to buy these games retail and not through PSN. Once PS3 owners take advantage of the cross play promotion, it will probably make people more receptive to buying larger memory cards.

 

Personally I think the 8GB memory card is the best value for the price, but I am glad that Sony is packing in the 4GB memory card for free with the AC & COD Vita bundles...

16GB will probabl only last 3-6 months..

 

since demos alone can take up some space.. unless you buy most games on physical media. then you can drag it out a bit longer..

 

but of course if i ahve a vita i'll use it for than just for gaming... since my psp is my portable video player for the last few years

I don't see how you or anyone can equate memory card size to how fast someone would be able to fill it up, it depends on the individual.

 

Right now it makes far more sense to buy games from retail, especially since Sony has lowered the prices on many Vita games in stores, but these new prices are not reflected on PSN.

 

Like I said before, 4GB is plenty for game saves and light amounts of dowloading. If the cross buy promotion takes off, I think it will prompt people to buy larger Vita memory cards...

and like i said.

 

16GB will last a few months unless you don't download much from PSN..

 

since you can store more than just game saves on the card..  movies, music, games. pictures.. etc..

 

eh.. if you don't have anything then 4GB will do..   but if you are on the other end of the scale type of users.. then 16GB at least.. if not 32GB

 

and yes. i agree   it depends on the user..  some use more and some use less..

IMO I still think that many people don't have a concept of how much 4GB can store. From what I have seen most Vita games/demos are quite small in file size. Unless the Vita is also your only portable device, I believe most people will use their phones/tablets to store their movies/pictures/music.

 

In any case 4GB is a good size to start with, especially since it will be free with certain Vita bundles...

The Madden, COD, and AC3 bundles that will be available is another form of an unofficial price cut.

Fry' s did lower the core system down to $200 on Labor Day, and I think we will see more price promotions over the next several months...

The Canada one is certainly good because you are getting two games that are good (Unit 13) and outright amazing (Gravity Rush)~.

But, and I don't want to sound like I'm nitpicking, the true price you'll be paying for that bundle is something like 330 ~ 340 USD (assuming you go for a 4GB memcard) since it comes with no memory card and both games are download only~.

Even then, it's still a good price and a good selection of games~.
