    if you can fill a 64gb, or whatever GB amount you use, memory card with 500 titles, you have some gaming problems. I only have 30 games + a few emulators that took me down to 16gb from 64gb. and I only have 1.6gb worth of gba, gbc, and psx games.

    somewhere
    And I thought 300 installed games would be enough, on a system with much more games than Vita.

    To be fair, if you wanted to install a fullset of roms for the Vita, I don't think there's even 500 dumped/released games. As to if there's a workaround, afaik, no, there's not.

    I imagine he's using a Vita TV with and external HDD, which could potentially have more than enough space for 500+ games.

    Assuming we don't count multi region dumps, there's something like 700+ games dumped right now. If we do include multi region stuff, it's somewhere in the 1400s ;)

    700+ !? Didn't think it was that huge l high. Is that counting vpk and Mai dumps as separate games? Also anywhere that you know of that has a list of what has been dumped for reference?

    The list I checked does occasionally have duplicates, I only guesstimated how many separate games there are.

    As to giving a link to the list, I can't. It's listed on a warez sub reddit, and includes links to a majority of the games.

    No, as far as anyone's aware there's no way above the 500 game limit at the moment.

    Although it may be possible to use this to list all the games, since it just lists games from the apps folder: https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-game-app-launcher.468969/

    But I dunno if that'd work or not.

    It should technically work, but I don't have 500+ apps to test that out lol

    I didn't even know there was 500 games that existed, are we speaking of games just in usa and only retail or including games from psn or international? I think the bigger idea is who is crazy enough to own that many games for the system, when not all of them are even good or worth playing? I mean if you are a collector i guess yeah but collectors collect retail carts, not digital download ones stuff O_O

    The Vita has like 1400 games total, not including PSP and PS1 titles. Most of them are PSN-exclusive/indie games

    Didn't even know there was a install limit for the ps vita so that's good to know. As far as the game dumps go i had no idea there was that many dumped. Unlike the 3ds community it feels like the viita community is sort of all over the place/unorganized compared to the 3ds scene. Even when you do find vita game dumps you don't find the update file and/or DLC for the games. dlc i understand not having since you have to pay for that but no update files?

    there's a huge torrent of 600GBs floating around somewhere. that's what I don't like too. a lot of dumps r also incomplete causing black screens or errors. once a game is dumped as a vpk, which can be incomplete, it's never redumped as mai. then, like u said, missing dlc and updates for many of the games... I always like my systems and games to be updated as much as possible unless there's a problem with that. there's a problem updating the vita and sometimes the games, but a lot of updates r pretty old, same with the dlc.
