    How long do you recommend to charge the vita first time when invoicing it before playing to get the full potential from the battery?

    Can you play Around with the menu without a memory card?

    Does FIFA require a memory card to play? One of my friends wanted to know. Thanks.

    Do you place near gifts in a specific location for others to go retrieve them, or do they transfer to other Vita users if you simply pass by them?

    Q: What is PS Vita’s battery life?
    A: Officially, PS Vita is rated at approximately 3 to 5 hours of gaming, 5 hours of video playback, and 9 hours of music playback. Recharging the battery from 0 percent will take approximately 2.5 hours.
    From a gaming perspective, you’ll notice that the most graphically intense games such as UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss are slightly more demanding on battery life, while simpler games such as Escape Plan are less demanding. To further maximize battery life, you can employ measures such as reducing the screen’s brightness or deactivating Wi-Fi. By and large, PlayStation employees who have used PS Vita extensively in the real world have praised the unit’s battery life – if you pick up PS Vita on day one, be sure to let us know what your experiences are.

    from what i have seen certain games will disable network features (ie uncharted golden abyss) so yeah your downloads will be paused. also if your going to play using wifi then again your download will be paused. pausing the game itself (pressing the ps button) will start the dowload again

    **Sorry to thread jack, just had to help somehow :p

    - Vita should charge first before playing, imo. A full charge is 2 hours and 40 minutes.
    - You do need a memory card to run photos.app, camera.app, video.app, and some PSN/SEN apps like (party chat, etc.)


    - If you are in the general vicinity of a gift or item in that location, you will get the gift. 3G may give exact coordinates, but WiFi will triangulate in an area near you.

    - Yes, you do need a memory card to play FIFA. The save data for it is the biggest save data for any Vita game right now. I believe.

    If my by launch pack you mean 3G. In the US it's 8GB memory card, and after 30 days you get a voucher for Super Stardust.
    In the EU, through Vodaphone you get Wipeout. You get a 4GB memory card if you buy it from them.


    So it can save to the cartridge. That is a new revelation for me lol. Someone totally did me wrong then Lmao.

    I'll help him out with some of the questions..

    You only have to charge it for like 30 minutes once you get it, it's already at about 80%!

    And you can pretty much do everything without a memory card, except for play games. Even the update works without a memory card!

    I definately did NOT know you can play games without a memory card. I thought that you had to have one to save your data? And yep, you guys are doing a great job answering those questions!

    4GB -- 19.99
    8GB -- 29.99
    16GB -- 59.99
    32GB -- 99.99

    Those are in US dollars.
