WTF? Vita has a 100 application/game limit?
 
What's the point of buying a 32GB memory when I can't keep all my games and applications in it? I don't want to delete anything; that's the whole point of digital distribution! I have over 140 apps/games on my iPhone, I'm sure Vita can do better!

[spoiler]Getting the obvious jokes out of the way: "Maybe Sony wasn't expecting more than 100 games on Vita"; "Wait... You own 100 games on Vita?"[/spoiler]

EDIT: in case someone is wondering: My memory card still has 9GB space left. I have around 50 minis, 10 PSOne titles, 20 or so mandatory apps, and 20 Vita/PSP games/apps.

*sigh* Time to delete Facebook app. [spoiler]Hit the gym, lawyer up.[/spoiler]

metalslimer 01-17-2013 06:21 AM

Is there even a logical reason for this? 100 is a lot though so it might be patched later.

Defuser 01-17-2013 06:21 AM

[U]Ans[/U]: So you can buy another 32gb memory card.

whitehawk 01-17-2013 06:22 AM

Wow. That's a truly pointless limit.

I'm at 49 bubbles. Would probably be close to 60 if I had a 32GB card.

Marz 01-17-2013 06:22 AM

Lol. Good ole' Sony

flippedb 01-17-2013 06:23 AM

OP stole my lines. What a dumb restriction, to be honest.

QuantumBro 01-17-2013 06:23 AM

This reminds me of the Wii.

Vita could use some folders

VanWinkle 01-17-2013 06:23 AM

This has been known for a long time. 10 page limit, 10 items to a page. We need folders and will hopefully get them soon.

Unfortunately, it looks as if the Vita has a 100 app limit regardless of the memory card that's in the system. Apparently you can't switch out cards like you can in the PSP.

The Vita needs folders like the 3DS.

Yup, hopefully it doesn't take as long to get them as it took 3DS.

I remember when folders was announced for 3DS and people went nuts. I always though that was bit funny.

There's not a limit on the 3DS /: At least not one this small.

ROFL! Two seconds too late on my part.

Crimsonlink 01-17-2013 06:28 AM

Well you must have filled the card with very small/bitesized games and apps. I don't see this being a common case though.

Ask Sony or just suck it up and keep playing. What are you going to do with 100 games anyways? I have like 4 games on my Phone and 5 digital ones on my Vita.

dallow_bg 01-17-2013 06:28 AM

I hate it so much.

I expect a folder system in the next major FW update though.
Sony is very aware of the issue.

Twinduct 01-17-2013 06:28 AM

Lol. They really need to fix some shit here.
Although I imagine the limit will be increased once they bring out their 64+ range of mem cards.

They should also increase the PSN friendlist limit!

Wii can hold more than 100 games. 48 on the main menu and up to 240 more on the SD menu iirc.

Faster than Sony.

Ponn01 01-17-2013 06:32 AM

A folder system would be welcome, but I wonder if it would have anything to do with being able access the OS/Home Screens/Other Apps while apps are running.

What would you do with all those games, anyway?"

Infinite Justice 01-17-2013 06:32 AM

Its been known for some time but its still baffling.

Needs folders or increase the page limit

3DS took 13 months, so Vita's coming up on it soon.

Majine 01-17-2013 06:34 AM

Why has folders become such a low prio feature? Even Wii U doesn't have it. It's not rocket science.

shagg_187 01-17-2013 06:35 AM

You know what else sucks? Correct me if I'm wrong but deleting a game also deletes save files. Lame...

It was only 48 for the first couple of year, they did fix it with the SD card patch.

Ozzykamikaze 01-17-2013 06:36 AM

You must be pretty proud being the only person to need this ever. XD

Seraphis Cain 01-17-2013 06:36 AM

If you're havin' Vita problems I feel bad for you, son

You got ninety nine games, not a hundred and one

VanWinkle 01-17-2013 06:36 AM

[QUOTE=lunchwithyuzo;46542283]3DS took 13 months, so Vita's coming up on it soon.[/QUOTE]

Yeah I know. A couple more months. I would think it would be in the next one, but who knows.

[QUOTE=Ozzykamikaze;46542319]You must be pretty proud being the only person to need this ever. XD[/QUOTE]

I know you're joking, but there are several people with this problem. I have well over a hundred with Vita retail, downloadable, minis, PSP, and PS1, but I have them spread over two 16gb cards so it's not a problem for me.

[QUOTE=shagg_187;46542295]You know what else sucks? Correct me if I'm wrong but deleting a game also deletes save files. Lame...[/QUOTE]

Yeah, this is the huge problem with the limit.

They should really separate the bubbles and save files.

MikeE21286 01-17-2013 06:37 AM

"why would you ever want 101 Vita applications"

/Sony

[QUOTE=shagg_187;46542295]You know what else sucks? Correct me if I'm wrong but deleting a game also deletes save files. Lame...[/QUOTE]

This is actually fucking disastrous IMO.

I still have a Lumines icon on my screen even though I don't own the game anymore.

Aquamarine 01-17-2013 06:37 AM

[QUOTE=Subtle;46542026]There's not a limit on the 3DS /: At least not one this small.[/QUOTE]

The 3DS one keeps expanding by 60 when space is running out to accommodate all of your programs. I don't think it has a hard, arbitrary limit.

[QUOTE=metalslimer;46541893]Is there even a logical reason for this? 100 is a lot though so it might be patched later.[/QUOTE]

It's using an internal flash memory that has a limit.

[QUOTE=ShockingAlberto;46542341]Yeah, this is the huge problem with the limit.

you do have options, you can back up the games all together on your PS3 or computer, wirelessly to boot. If you have PS Plus you can do the really easy method and just back your saves up right to cloud storage.

I think Plus Cloud saves fixes this problem. Of course getting all those free minis and Vita games probably helped you get to the 100 app limit quicker.

So Plus givith and takith I guess.

Your card can hold 100 games?

Anyway, post this on @yosp's twitter. Tell him you want more Vita games. They'll fix it.
