I know I say this with pretty much every LittleBigPlanet PS Vita update, but this one takes up a lot of space.

That's like 500 or 600MB in just updates for the game!

guitarded771258d ago

Yeah, and memory ain't cheap for the Vita. I already deleted most of my PS One games from my 32Gb card, and I'm still looking for space.

its not like if it wasnt possible to archive everything on your pc instead of deleting it.

content manager assistant......USE IT.

pain777pas1258d ago

MMA Fan-QC your right on the money. It takes a little bit of time. I have transferred tons of games to the PC and it is relatively quick to transfer from one device to the other.

guitarded771258d ago

THAT'S NOT THE ISSUE!!! The issue is making ALL DLC mandatory for download when you may not even buy it. MEMORY IS EXPENSIVE!!! Regardless of back-up, you still have to delete, you still have to move because ALL DLC UPDATES are required if you have DLC or not. It takes up space that is NEVER going to be used.

Good point, wrt content manager.

BUT I have to say, I do wish they'd compress content a little better. On the PSP when people made CSO's for UMDs they'd strip them for the region/language and then compress them. The firmware would then uncompress them on the fly. Many of them would be less than half the size of the original UMD content.

Some of these soft copies of games are just stupid big given how expensive Sony has priced the memory.

After I bought a soft copy of Resistance which is well over 3Gb, I realized my initial plan of going with soft copies of everything may have been flawed given the pricing of mem cards for this thing. LOL.

They need to compress their content better AND produce bigger and cheaper cards. They do not compete well on this front. I just bought a 64Gb card for my phone for $46.

IMHO, they need to lower the price for Vita memory even more than they need to lower the base system cost. It is absolutely exorbitant when you compare to other systems that are competing for consumer attention.

You have to bare in mind that these updated don't stack. The update incorporates all the other previous updates so it's not like a new LBP player would have to download a 500-600mb patch.

Having said that, I too have a practically full 32GB card. I hope during this big PlayStation announcement on the 20th they give us a firmware update to include folders. I hate the current bubble icon system. It's horrible to use when you have a lot of apps. Fingers crossed for cheaper and bigger memory cards too.

FragGen1258d ago

Agreed on all points. My 32gb card is full and I have to manage memory space on my Vita much more than I'd like. None of my other devices (except maybe my retarded ipad mini which is simply memory deficient and doesn't even take cards) require this kind of constant backup/delete something/add something type of loop I'm constantly stuck in on the Vita.

I would really like to have nearly all of my content available to pick from at a whim. I need a 64gb or 128gb card most likely.

enkeixpress1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

I'm already pretty tight for space on my 16GB card >.<

Gotta save up for that 32GB card XD wish they would compress even more.. get the file size down to at least 50MB, if they can.

Killzoner991258d ago

I can't believe all the cry babies on here. Go buy more memory if you are running low. It's an easy fix if you ask me.

IMightBeRetarded1258d ago

I really need a new mem card, my pitiful 4gb card can barely hold 3 games. I'll have to delete another just to fit this patch.

Sheesh! Are you kidding me?

ftwrthtx1258d ago

I was afraid this would happen. The game needs to be updated everytime new DLC is coming so as to add it to everyone's game.

We all may have to keep a separate 8 or 16gb memory card just for this game.

ChronoJoe1258d ago

Hardly, LBP2s patches only consume like 2gb or something like that, in total. I doubt this games lifetime patches will go beyond 1-1.5.

Brash_Attack1258d ago

Jesus. I only have an 8GB card. I can't keep up with these.

delboy1258d ago

Buy a cheap SD card, where's the problem. Lol

JBSleek1258d ago

See now only if Sony allowed one to do such a thing.

Brash_Attack1258d ago

It's pretty apparent that you don't own a Vita.

Williamson1258d ago

It gets annoying having to switch content from my vita to ps3/pc. Hopefully a price drop in memory cards is announced on the 20th.

T3mpr1x1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

You said it! I am NOT paying $90 for only 32 GB of memory Sony...

Ideally, it'd be $50 for 32 GB, $75 or so for 64 GB (oh yeah, please announce a 64 GB memory card Sony!)

mcstorm1258d ago

I do think Sony misses a trick by selling the cards the way they do. For me they should of sold 16 32 and 64gb psvs and maybe have an extra storage card option to with cards the same size. Sony really do need to stop trying to make as much money as they can on there own memory cards as it is hurting them in the long run and putting the cost of there devices up.

FragGen1258d ago

IMHO, the memory cost and capacity are where Sony REALLY boned it with the Vita so far.

I can afford the upfront cost of the device (and it'll drop eventually for folks still put off by it). But the memory thing is flat out BRUTAL in terms of both how much it costs and how limited it is for the serious collector types (guilty as charged! LOL!).

I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything else about this device. I'm happy with the hardware, software, and the future releaes look awesome but please, Sony, address the memory situation ASAP!
