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!



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?"

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. Hit the gym, lawyer up.

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

Wow. That's a truly pointless limit.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.

They should really separate the bubbles and save files.

This is actually fucking disastrous IMO.

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

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.

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.
