"Recently, we found a bad news for the Sony's upcoming handhelds Playstation Vita. It was from a forum that a user just came back from the PS Vita event in Osaka, and the user wrote a bad news for PS Vita. Let's take a look below."
Doesn't bother me because no one else will be touch my Vita except me
Same here, but that kind of sucks.
Yeah d*ck move, sony have gone backwards.
As of right now I think this is a rumor.
@MariaHelFutura Let's hope so. I'd suck really if you couldn't access say 2 different accounts of 2 different regions on the same Vita. It would make downloading different content easier. Like I said, let's hope this is just a rumor.
I somehow doubt this is true. First off the system has more memory and ram then the PS3, thus allowing it to do something the PS3 is incapable of doing (Cross game voice chat). And or if it is true i hope its region specific. Though at the same time it kind of makes sense as they are trying to keep people from game sharing like people took advantage of with the PS3. Yea, this definitly sucks if true.
My vita My rules
I hope they change this as there ar certain contents only available on certain regions ):
can you get the eu and jpn stuff off the ps3 and put it on the vita ? If so then no worries here
'Dmarc' is correct.
Wasn't the psp go the same way with 1 account per machine.
the psp in general was like that
if someone wanted to play your vita with their account they could though... theres just about no storage space on the vita without memory cards so a factory reset becomes trivial. you'll have almost nothing saved on the vita so in resetting to factory settings you'll loose almost nothing
Explains why vita games on psn will be 40% less than retail. So gamers can get their games cheap with out having sony loose out on sales ala gamesharing. The vita is getting better and better by the day.
You do realize this means you can't download any games or demos from the EU/Japan store if you are in North America, right? It's a form of region locking digital content. Not a big deal but does kinda suck.
All i have to say is read cgoodno #3 and #5 post in the link below. He basically explains it all. http://forums.n4g.com/tm.as...
I'd rather have the games im gonna play daily 40% less than be able to play the occasional title that i want from a different region
Except, the difference is that you can still share your iPad/iPhone and each app has their own account if necessary. Games typically don't and often times they only save based on checkpoints, not a save game file. Either way and whatever the reason is, I would say this is a backwards step and I hope Sony will change this.
Ahhh there's the spin!
Lol, the art of spinning, a playstation fanboy skill
The art of Hypocrisy... a general fanboy skill. Damn near every handheld digital device has only one user account, including the 3DS,PSP, and IOS devices.
"Damn near every handheld digital device has only one user account, including the 3DS,PSP, and IOS devices."\ The PSP and IOS device thing you might want to watch out of. You can switch accounts on those without reformatting to default settings.
Well im not buying it for anyone else except me, ive kept the one ps3 account since launch too
This was the case with the PSP, so it's not that big a deal.
You could *have* more than one account on the psp, you just disabled everything from one account while you played content from the other. Still, this is hardly even a big deal...
Wait, so I won't be able to switch between my UK and US accounts on the Vita?
Some of you should really practice some source criticism. This originates to a forum post from a nobody, yet you are commenting as if Sony confirmed this themself. If this is true, it's a bummer, but nothing deal breaking, because it's no different from the PSP and 3DS.
they should change this...at least 2
Thats quite lame really, I just hope the PSN Store will be updated worldwide on the same day, will suck if a region has to wait longer than another to download demos/games etc because we can only have 1 PSN account and not access the store from another region
And having multiple accounts on a handheld gaming device was a big deal when...? o_O
Lol i dont know. I cant think of one that ever allowed you to have more than one account. Or hell, even have an account to begin with besides the PSP.
Looks like I won't be able to do what I do on my PS3 & download exclusive content from different region PSN stores with my multiple region PSN accounts. UK, US, Japan, Hong Kong, etc etc.. :D Ah well... Might be able to get around that with custom firmware though, hopefully. Can't wait for this handheld to be hacked, open up it's full potential. Homebrew! GBA, Snes, N64 emulators.. and dare I say it, play downloaded isos of PSVita games. :)
I bet you don't have an access to multiple PSN accounts 'cause you're a pirate.
that's how it should be. A handheld is a personal device anyway. And if you want to get games from different regions you can do it through your ps3 and then just transfer to your vita.
I hated switching back and forth between accounts to play certain games o associated with the two accounts im using. This does sucks. Also, im no trophy fan, but I really wouldn't want people unlocking trophies for me when they play my vita. Also, you would think sony would allow mutiple users one vita. imagine a scenario where a person who has a vita and his freind who has a PSN account but no vita could unlock trophies. At some point this will encourage his freind to buy a vita especially if he's a trophy hunter. Also alot of families will buy one handheld but its has to be shared. I remember me and my bro shared a Gameboy back in 1995.
Fine with me...
Do you need more than 1 accounts? I've honestly never thought of this until i saw this article.
1 account is enough for me.. i'm not planing to have anyone except me to touch my vita. but there is one thing i'm worried about. this thing about 1 account..means i can't download games from the japanese PSN.. that makes sense and i'm fine with that. but does it affect japanese retail games aswell? because i'm planing to get my vita here in europe, and then i will inport the japanese titles for vita that i think is cool but arent available in EU.. anyone knows if i can still play retail games from japan on it?
I find this hard to believe - maybe if there is only 1 psn account maybe you can have multiple sub accounts under that 1 psn account..Definitely worth checking out though to get the truth when the console is released..
Wow, this is not good. No R3 or L3 buttons and now only 1 log in ID? Yeah, I don't see me ever being enticed to buy the Vita, considering the ps3 is cheaper, and does almost everything better, besides not being portable and cross game chat. Which, btw, doesn't matter to me cause I love playing on consoles! But yeah, thanks but no thanks Sony. Let me know when you guys are ready to do something not just hardcore, but for adults when it comes to handhelds.
