    Not sure if I should get 16GB or 32GB.
    What do you think?
    16GB is $59.99
    32GB is $99.99

    I'd recommend to wait until sony acknowledges its mistakes and lower the price of the memory cards.
    Oh, and I think those prices you've posted are incorrect.

    No, its the right price. I read online saying that you need a memory card to play games. (Not 100% sure about that since I read it a while ago)
    Maybe it would be better to just get a 4gb for now and wait till third party memory cards are out.

    Depends on how you use it. Im going to wait till I see how much space is needed for save games and downloads. And see if the price drops. wish they just used mirco sd or even duo stick since there cheaper.

    Get the 16gb. I can't see PSV games being huge if you're going to buy them digitally, ditto for PSN titles.
    You'll mostly be needing it for saves. 16gb should be fine.

    Playstation Vita games are 500mb to 3.5gb right now, will go higher down the road

    Army Corps of Hell / Ridge Racer is about 500mb-600mb each
    Uncharted Golden Abyss is about 2.8gb
    Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend is about 3.2gb

    Oh, and each time you put in a new PS Vita game cart, it installs stuff on the flash or the memory card. Basically a boot-up app. It's there even if that specific cart isn't there on the vita but it deletes everything if you remove it from OS screen. Not sure if it'll remove trophy datas (before sync) but i know you can only have 100 games / apps listed, including trophies listed locally, at least for now.
