Sony Confirms One PSN Account Per Vita System

on December 5, 2011 8:00 PM

A NeoGaf forum post claimed that the PS Vita, like the PSP before it, will only allow one PSN account per system, a fact that was later confirmed by a Sony rep via Twitter. Well, you technically can, but there’s a catch:

“only difference is that Vita requires you to do a factory reset when logging into a new [account], PSP does not,” tweeted Brad Douglas, Sony Japan’s third-party relations representative in response to another user.

So if you were thinking you might be able to download Japanese titles in the US or European games in Asia, doesn’t look like it’ll be possible. Then again, do Xbox LIVE or WiiWare let you do either of those things? This digital region-lock also seems to be a deal-breaker for some folks on the NeoGaf forum mentioned above in terms of their purchase of a Vita. Is that the case for you?
