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.
Not really. My screens are almost filled up but unfortunately those FF games are pretty big and I have a couple Vita games over 3 gigs and more sitting at 2 gigs.
Again I don't think this is a simple matter of just adding folders, especially those using 3DS as their basis of comparison. You can suspend any app on the Vita access your other apps and have multiple apps going with your entire OS visible and accessible. This may be a hard limit set for what the internal ram can handle all at once. It's not just a space issue with your memory card or deleting items.
Well, let's see, you take out about 20 icons installed by the system, and that makes 80 icons for you to fill. You really think you can't find 80 apps/Vita retail/Vita downloadable/minis/PS Mobile/PS1 Classics/PSP games on there over the course of a year? Especially if you had previously built up some of your PSP/PS1/minis library before that.
I thought this was a well known thing? 10 page limit was widely talked about during Jpn launch last year.
I second the icon arranging being a pain in general - it's hardly Vita exclusive though (all touch devices suck for this, universally) - but Apple at least has a workaround by letting you arrange icons in iTunes, with a dramatically more usable interface on PC/Mac.
There should be no reason why Vita can't do this either - hell make it a Move PS3 app if you must - being able to sync layout on other devices would also solve the issues with card-switching.
Yeah, I know they'll fix this with folders eventually... they'll have to. PSN+ members that obsessively download every free thing (such as myself) will be particularly prone to having issues after the service has been on Vita for a year.
I always found this restriction hilarious, and rather alarmingly baffling. Coupled with the fact that the Vita marries your save file to the game (unless you use a cart, in which case save data takes up a bubble separately from the cart :/), this is uncharacteristically archaic and short sighted on Sony's part. When I consider that 3DS had a better file management system to begin with (300 file display limit that was increased to 18,000 with folders update; also, I might be wrong, but I think 3DS handles save data for its digital games separately from the actual games themselves, meaning deleting the game should not delete the save data), I begin to womder WTF Sony was up to, to make such a simple usability oversight such as this.
Thankfully, this is nothing that cannot be replaced by a future firmware update and in fact I expect the ext major one to at least increase the icon limit, and maybe even give us folders, but it is not an issue that should have existed to begin with.
its more dumb that they just dont have folders. Almost every other device does, it just seems so obvious.
The saves is anoying if you dont have plus but all I did is back up the app if I wanted to remove it (can do this to PS3 or PC). Then if you want it again just restore it as the save is backed up with it. Have to do the same thing with physical games as well but seeing as the bubble only contains the save data its only a small file.
Its not perfect and still silly considering the PS+ servers shows they can easily extract the save file to be backed up if needed. However isn't it something to do with piracy protection due to what happened on PSP? Think I remember hearing that somewhere.
