why is it taking you guys so long? just transfer the game over, don't need to back it up.
Because that's how long it takes to backup 6+ gigs of data via USB. That's exactly the issue: no way to backup just the save games.
I've bought all my vita games on card however I have a few psp games and downloadable ones (i.e. Super Stardust) and as TehPhilosopher says it takes a while to backup 6GB+ of data, which is pretty easy to reach on the vita with the size of downloadable titles!
What seems dumb here is that you can't just keep the game saves seperate from the game itself. I'm quite a prolific gamer, so I swap out games all the time. It seems like if I want to retain, say, my BlazBlue save, I'll need to back up 3.5 Gigs of data FOREVER. I mean, its bad enough now, but imagine two years time, with gigs and gigs of data being kept for the sake of a 2 Mb save file.
It seems like we're being totally discouraged from using the PSN store, if we can't save our progress easily.
Speculation based on facts.
if im not mistaken you can backup only the save data of psp/other games, but for the ps vita theres no such option. Can this mean its not possible to only backup save data? Why would they keep such an option only for the psp games then
