TGS 2013: PS Vita Registration Limit of Two Per PSN Account Might Change to Accommodate PS Vita TV

on September 21, 2013 1:55 PM

At the moment you can register only two PS Vita units to your PSN account, and this has caused concern between Japanese users with the announcement of the PS Vita TV and the new PCH-2000 model. With three models available, and maybe some wanting to have multiple Vita TV units attached to multiple TVs to take advantage of remote play from the PS4, the current limit may prove a little restrictive.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia Senior Vice President Hiroshi Ueda told 4Gamer in an interview that the limit is indeed there, but concerned customers won’t be ignored.

Currently for each PSN account you can register up to two PS Vita. This means that if you already have two PS Vita one must be removed to register a PS Vita TV. We were surprised by the fact that this caused concern between customers.

Although this policy cannot be changed easily, after we heard the concerns I believe we should not ignore them. Strengthening communication with customers properly, we want to avoid situations that cause inconvenience after a purchase.

Now that the voice of the customers has reached us, we’ll move according to our policies to improve the elements that can be changed.

Sony Computer Entertainment has been very responsive, lately, in changing policies that caused concern between customers, so we’ll see what they’ll do to in order to patch this situation. Considering the low price of the PS Vita TV, I can definitely see how some gamers with disposable income may want to get more than one in order to be able to play their PS4 games on multiple TVs in different rooms.

Hell, I have a friend with a TV in his bathroom. Bet you he’ll want a PS Vita TV there. He’s that kind of dude.
