    The larger the better. PSP games (if you don't compress them) can often shoot over 1GB each. I've been rocking the 16GB internal storage on my Go and it's sweet. I'd say go with the 16GB card.

    And for homebrew, a sony (magicgate supported) 4GB one. Some homebrew have issues with larger pro duo cards.

    8/16gb memory pro is good in all.
    but i'll be worried about the chance of getting a fake memory pro duo( does not support magicgate) though if your buying it online..........

    4GB is the ideal size....no idea why people need much more really.

    Majority of good games are usually 1GB+. Which is why probably 8GB or 16GB would be more preferable

    It would depend on how many games you're keeping on your card as well. If yo want to have 6+ than you'll need an 8GB minimum. In my case I don't leave much on my memory stick so I find using a 4GB is a bit too much.

    Now i know i'm slightly mental with my gaming habits, but i tend to play a game, finish it, then start on the next one. So even if i were indulgent it'd be a couple of games and some emulators.....

    I truly don't understand the need to have 4 or 5 full games on hand all the time.

    plus you have homebrew or any psx games so it depends on what you want on the card

    Growing up on a Spectrum and playing the same game for months whilst saving up for the next one taught me to value every single game no matter how bad.

    Now i finish everything i start unless it's absolutely, awfully, hugely terrible.

    I thinking along the lines about how you can have several games available to you at your pleasure. Think about the people who have 16GB Micro SD cards and download anything looking remotely decent.

    what exactly is "pirate's syndrome" if i may ask? Is it just downloading for the sake of downloading or is there more to it?

    My understanding of Pirate Syndrome is not really investing the time and effort into games....

    If you've paid real money for a game you actually put real value into it and spend more time with it getting your monies worth and riding out the low points. If you have a massive array of games for free people seem to give up on a seemingly poor game much faster and switch to another because there's no incentive to persist with it and enjoy the good points.

    Sometimes a game takes a while to fully enjoy these days....be it down to story developing slowly or weird gameplay mechanics which aren't immediate.

    are those pro duo-to-double microsd card adapters any good? i'm thinking about getting one if they work fine

    also suggestions would be nice if you bought one
