    Hello, i am very tired of buyig a memory card for my psp vita console because it costs too much money. I understand that the NVG cards are used to store games and they contain game files but not all games are stored on NVG cards. Some games are downloaded from the PSN network to the PSVITA memory card. I own a 8gb memory card and it has only 40MB of space left. I do not wish to use the 8gb memory card for my primary storage for saving games and also downloading games from the psn network.

    Is there another way to store games or download content instead of downloading them directly to the psp vita memory card?

    - I want something like remote play, so you can load games off the playstation 3. However, i do not have a ps3 console and do not wish to buy one.

    I have a pc with a 4TB hard drive. I can use that hard drive to store playstation vita game files in the same way the psp vita memory card is used to store games.

    Im sure it is just a file called: game.psn or something. So i want to also play games off the network drive on my pc that i have created using windows share.


    How to load games like we do on a ps3 and play them on the vita but instead do the exactly same thing BUT on a windows 7 pc instead of a ps3 console or a ps4 console.

    I want to remote play but i want to download games to pc hard drive or a network storage such as psn+ online storage which i pay for and save all games there and also the game saves such as my user profile.


    Do you know what i mean? I not only want to load games off my network but i want to save the games on my psn+ online storage or instead of storing the KB save games into my psp vita memory, i would like ot store the save game files online somewere or my network drive.
    is that possible. If yes, please explain.....


    Thanks in advance.
    Raghav

    This isn't possible. The Vita hasn't even been hacked yet, and doing what you want to do would involve accessing and spoofing remote play protocols which just hasn't happened.

    Quite frankly it would just be infinitely easier and quicker to just buy a 16GB/32GB memory card and be done with it. They're slowly dropping in price nowadays (though you do live in Australia, so I'm sure it would be balls more expensive there >.>).

    Why not buy a 32gb micro SD for a few quid and an adapter for £1 off eBay. (At least you could do that with PSP so assume its the same for this)

    i want another way to play ps vita games except from accesing games from my 8GB memory card or the NVG card. I hate it because the 8GB is NOT enough for my save games and the memory card like the 32 gb one is too expensive. Are there any stores i can buy the memory off unlike ebay or gumtree in Australian dollars? Im sure if i place an order for the memory card outside Australia, it will be the same price as it costs in AUD.

    So what is the point of getting it from USA or canada?
    Please tell me a good site which sells a 64gb or 128gb of about 60-70 dollars or less. I do not want to pay 45 just for 16 gb card...,

    Do you think usb storage is possable through the usb charge port?
    PSN+ lets you have online space. I dont understand what that space is for. Is it to store the profile or save games or whole game files???
    Even if the psn+ option is available i would rather play games locally through a network rather then internet because i am not always at home.


    PLEASE HELP ME.

    No, you can't use the USB charge port.

    PS+ gives you a small amount of online space to backup saved games and that's it, it's not used for anything else and only certain games use it. The game always has to save data to the memory card, which it then uploads to Sony's servers.

    Again, there is nothing you can do but purchase another memory card. There's literally nothing else you can do at this time. You have to live with the fact that, in Australia, gaming prices are just...poop, and so are Vita memory cards prices. In the US, 32GB sells for about $65. You might able to import one from eBay or the like, but customs might end up being a bit expensive and such.

    ok if i buy a memory card from ebay usa, rather then australian ebay store, then wont the price be exactly the same in AUD?
    Say if a card cost me $65 for the 64 gb on in usa dollars, then in AUD it will be the same price but about $10 more.
    However, the rate and price is same because the curruncy is differant?

    If you buy something from eBay, and it's marked as $65 USD, you would pay the equivalent of $65 in AUD (a quick google search says that's ~$70 AUD). Looking around, it seems 32GB Vita memory cards go for $85AUD, so you'll be getting one for $15AUD cheaper.
