Would not personally buy one used but that still seems very high compare to a good bundle new or some of the better deals on adverts.

I think if you were pricing it up say (to sell) you'd be looking roughly

console - 200
Fifa - 30
Wipeout - 25
8gb card - 25

so 280. So 260 would seem to be a good price like.

Essentially, if you have..:
1 Memory card: Reset every time you want to use content from another account
2+ Cards: Reset once, activate the card on one account (only one account per card), switch the card back if you need to return to the original one; you only need to reset when you first activate it.

This is what I've read, i haven't done it

I'm trying to get some photos on my vita from the PC, but they keep coming up as question marks, is there anyway to convert them or something?

What format are you using? I know Vita saves screenshots as JPEG.

A quick and easy way is to convert them is open em in microsoft paint, and select "Save As" and select your required file type. Otherwise download the free software "GIMP" (Don't let the name fool you, its a free version of photoshop ) and do the same process if paint doesnt have the file type you require

EDIT: 100th post! woot

Just started Metal Gear Peace Walker on the vita. Strangely enough, it still requires you to install content to memory stick, even though its the digital version of the game, not the disk version! In all, it can take up to 2gigs of space.

Aha there's your problem, don't use a mac nah in seriousness if they're in Jpeg already then maybe it's a case that their dimensions arent compatible with the vita, that's the only other thing I can think of

I'd be happy to take 300 on it, 210 for the console, 30 for fifa, 25 for wipeout, 25 for 8gb card, travel kit 10, its advertised online for 309 now to allow a bit of leeway for people who will naturally haggle but still no-one is biting.

That's optional - installing it adds audio codecs (talking) during missions; the small one plays the important ones, the larger one plays them all.

After my recent case purchase on Amazon, I found this in my suggestions.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/350534344049

It is a set of 8 attachments for the PS Vita. It consists of:
- two directional pad overlays [pretty pointless TBH]
- two convex pads for the analog sticks with added circular ridges for extra grip
- two concave pads with four raised dots at each point
- and finally two deeper concave pads with indented dots [my favourites]

They are cheap [like the case, a fiver], but well made and solid.

The pads are easy to put on but difficult to take off [which obviously has both good and bad points] and they really do make the analog sticks easier to use, especially the concave ones.

The directional pads are a bit pointless and require an adhesive pad to stick to the PS Vita so I didn't bother with them.

Overall, well worth it, definitely recommended.
