PS Vita owners, can you please answer some questions? (memory)

Hi.

I've been looking at the PS Vita but I still have some questions. I hope you can answer them.

I found that games from the Sony Store are from some MB to 3GB in size. I I buy many games and there's no room for one more, can I delete one game to make room for a new one? If so, can I download again the game I deleted?

Thanks

You can also transfer your games to your PS3, PC or Mac. If you would rather not wait all the time it takes to download these games.

wait you can upload your games to a PC or Mac without any sort of jail braking?

I think there is some sort of software you have to download from Sony in order to make it work, but I haven't done it myself, so I can't say for certain.  I've only used my PS3 so far.

Actually, the software is built into the Vita, it asks you to install it when you connect it to the PC, and from then on it's pretty simple. Though it's a bit strange it's all done from the Vita itself, not the PC.

one of the things that has been failed to mention is that all of your gave saves are tied into the game data. So as of right now you can not delete a game but keep its save on the system. Only way of keeping it is by transferring the game it to your PS3/PC/Mac before deleting it of the vita itself . So if you were say traveling had access to wifi but not your computer and you don't regularly back up your vita, you are out of luck if you wanted to download something but don't have the room.

I'd say pick up a 16gb at the least or just pluck out for the 32gb one. I have a 16gb one, since Sony didn't release the 32gb in Europe at launch. It comes out as 14gb and I have 2 retail PSN games and 3 digital PSN games and it eats up the space quickly.

working fine for me, personally. I've downloaded 4 games and still have 27 GB left. BlazBlue is the largest game I've seen; I think it's larger than Uncharted. 3.3 GB. Rayman, on the other hand, is tiny...less than a GB I believe.
