    Basically I got a very nice deal on a slim Vita (cca $60) and naturally I had to hack it ASAP. It came with a 8GB memory card but since that's way to small for my needs I also bough a SD2Vita adapter online, and now I'm looking for a micro SD card to enable it as my main storage. The only thing I'm not sure is what size should I get? There's a bunch of great deals, and I'm currently eyeing a Samsung Evo 64GB micro SD card. Is that enough? GBA and GBC emulators are a priority, but I also fancy PSX games as well as Ps Vita games since there are some nice exclusives.

    What do you guys recommend I should do/buy?

    it's all back to you
    do you need all the games to be always available whenever you want to play, or you're okay with backing up and restoring to/from PC
    for reference, with 64GB I have 3 pages of Vita games, 2 of PSP games and 2 of PS1 games. no emulators or other music/video

    Given that you will be sharing that card between Vita, PSP and PS1 games, I'd say the minimum should be 128GB.

    Well I dont really want a huge amount of games on my system TBH. Maybe the Top 10 PSX, PSP and Vita games with about a hundred SNES, GBC and GBA games (un total). The difference between the 128GB and the 64GB is $10 tops so I wouldnt be loosing much.

    10 games each for PSX, PSP and Vita + hundreds of retro games
    64 GB won't be enough. get at least 128 GB

    I have a 64G Sony card and just filled it up. It does happen quick especially when the good vita games are 2-3G each. Then u have game updates and DLCs
    I have sd2vita to so I will add on with that but if u starting fresh as a 64G owner I’d say get bigger

    Vita games size 1 to 3.8g
    Psp 500m to 1.5g
    Psx games ~700m
    The entirety of the nes library is a couple hundred megs.
    The entirety of the snes library is around 500m
    Gbc library ~900m max
    Gba, found 2437 files at around 10 gigs.

    No harm in getting a bigger card. You could definitely fill it quick, but unless you start hording vita/psp games, Id bet you dont use 50 gigs of that card.

    I'd say 128 gigs.

    I got a 64 gig in mine and am running short on space, mostly due to me moving everything from me PSP to me Vita.

    Yeah, but I dont want the whole library of SNES/NES/GBA/GBC just the maybe top 50. Thats maybe 2GB tops. The same goes for PSX, PSP and PSV games. But I plunged and went for the 128GB mSD card which should arrive in a couple of days.
    Had an OLED vita before when Henkaku was fist announced with Vitamin and whatnot, but I sold it due to the lack of interest and the fact that i had a 8GB PSV card in it with no option to expand. Now that Vita2SD is out for a couple of bucks its really worth the purchase given the amazing PSX library, not to mention all the cool Vita indies.
