Ok let's make this the thread were we gather information as to how to most efficiently reduce game sizes without breaking the game.
This is what i have gathered so far:

Just Sound files removed:

-Borderlands 2- I heard some people had succes with this game. I own it on my official vita. so no idea on details.
-Need for speed Most wanted -Space saved: 244MB ES and FR folders (spanish/french) - TESTED boots fine and plays fine as far as i can see
-Plants vs Zombies -Space saved: 12.1 MB de es fr it in data folder. - TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see
-Sonic All Star Racing -Space saved: 250 MB +- fra, ger, ita, spa pck files in sound folder, Not sure on multi.pck if safe to delete.. - TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see
-Streetfighter X tekken -Space saved: 76.6MB - Archive folder All the folders except ENG AND CMN. I thought cmn was chinese manderin but it gave me a black screen i removed this so i put it back and game booted again. - TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see
-Tearaway [/i][/u]-Space saved: 277 MB assets gamedata audio fr da de folders etc... - TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see

Video's removed:
-Ar nosurge plus ode to an unborn
-Space saved: 240MB Movie/Japanese folder. I dont see why only japanese folder is in there and no other language.. (also has an english one.)- TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see
-Rayman Origins -Space saved: 467 MB 6 video files in the root of data folder. - TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see
-Oddworld Strangers Wrath -Space saved: 301 MB 14 video files data/movies.

Sound And videos removed:
-Assasin creed Liberation -Space saved:464 MB +- Just delete all the GER, FRE etc. files in the sound folder - TESTED boots fine and plays as far as i can see
EDIT: Found more, 6 MP4 language based files in video folder


Someone told me get a hex editor and just delete the contents which is the same as creating a .txt file and renaming to whatever the files name is, and transfer it over via FTP.
I decided not to do this untill i run into a problem. What you do is up to you.

If you have found more suggestions experiments as what to is safe to delete please do tell!
Memory card space is precious with henkaku and vitamin.
I have noticed also that in alot of games there are .bik/ movies or Intro/Credits files etc.. Perhaps those could be deleted too in some games. but I have yet to experiment.

I have all these games installed on the same SD card so right now it saved me 2331.7 MB. :) if u try reploids tip of deleting manuals this added 1.09 GB adding in +- 3.43 Free GB!

Removing some of the movies might be trickier. since you dont necessarily know when these are loaded. Safest bet will be removing intro/credits id say. Just make backups on pc.
I will aim for to remove all non essential videos. If there are videos that are actually related to the game's story itself i will try to keep it in the game to retain the experience.
