How Big A Memory Card Should You Get For Your PS Vita? These Game Download Sizes Should Help

With the PS Vita now out in Japan, the Examiner got its hands on a list of PS Vita game and app download sizes from the country’s PSN Store. The sizes range from the extremely tiny — 14MB for Nico Nico — to the fairly hefty — 3.1GB for fighter BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend.

As you’d expect, Uncharted: Golden Abyss is up there at 2.7GB, while Ridge Racer is more easily consumable at 561MB.

The Vita’s proprietary memory cards come in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities. By the looks of these download sizes, it might be worth splashing out for the 16GB or 32GB, especially seeing as Sony has retracted its earlier statement that said PSN accounts were bound to memory cards and not the console.
