Hello everyone...

I have PS Vita, with COD running from its "game" memory stick and Assasin downloaded onto the VIta memory stick (from PS network). Now I want to install a new game which I purchased online, but I cannot since the memory stick has no space.

What are the solutions do I have?

I'm using mac by the way.

Shall I just delete assasin from the memory card and download the other game? Will I still be able to redownload assasin? will I lose any of my progress or saves? how is the downloading and redownloading of games work.

I checked the sony website couldn't find the answer im looking for.

thanks in advace.

Backup your saves and then delete whatever game you're not currently using.

Games and saves aren't tied together for the Vita but they are for the PSP. I just say back up because I tell everyone to back up.

If you already have Content Manager Assistant installed on your Mac, you can just make a backup of your game. Save file is tied to the game when you do a backup (for digital games), so no worries here. And oh, if you're a PS+ subscriber, you can simply upload your save file to the cloud. Pretty convenient.

Lastly, you can redownload any game when you access the download list in PS store.

EDIT: Customize the folder locations of your backup files with CMA if you don't like the default ones.
