One account only on PS Vita

It was confirmed this morning that the PlayStation Vita will only support one PlayStation Network account.

The news is sure to disappoint many a gamer, a poor move on Sony’s part. What this means is, if you share the handheld with someone else, you’ll both have to play under the same PSN ID and also, you won’t be able to purchase content from different regions on the same Vita.

The information was given at a public Vita event in Japan and credit to the first English language source, Neogaf, who translated as follows:

“Only 1 account. If you want to to use a different account, you need to format the system to factory settings.”

Brad Douglas of Sony Japan then confirmed the news via Twitter:

“The only difference is that Vita requires you to do a factory reset when logging into a new account.”
