    Do the ps Vita games save on the memory card or on the gamecard itself?

    Also I'm on my ipod so I can't do many research.

    I would assume it would write small save data to the game card and others like DLC to the memory card, but I could be wrong.

    Not currently no. We'll know more when they actually come out or when they're near coming out.

    ^_^ good to hear, both come from Tecmo Koei and I assume both will save on card then. I don't have the money for a memory card atm and it's 1+1 game free at my local game store... :P Still great to hear thanks everyone!

    Also FYI, it states if it saves to the memory card on the box.

    The memory cards have a certain amount of disk space reserved (5-15% supposedly, which makes little sense as that would imply the entire game discs are actually rewritable....) specifically for game saves/updates/patches... that said, games can and WILL use memory card space for DLC/extras/etc.

    Sony has said that games that do not require memory cards will not be able to use DLC.
