Apocalypse Partially Averted

I think there’s a moral to this story but who cares about that for the moment. We reported earlier this week that the PlayStation Vita will only allow one PlayStation Network (PSN) account per system. If you’ve listened to podcast episode 245 yet, you may have heard our disappointment with this news.

Two bits of good news here. First of all, we weren’t the only media outlet breaking this news and more importantly, the news isn’t true.

Sony will not only allow multiple PSN accounts per Vita handheld system but the way they are handling it is fantastic. Sony associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie informed Wired.com how this will be handled.

“Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita,” MacKenzie said.

In other words, in order to change from one PSN account to another all you have to do is put in a different memory card.

Josh had some hands on time with the Vita last night at a Sony New York event, so stay tuned for more coverage real soon.

    That’s somewhat good news . . . I guess.  Just gotta pay (for those ridiculously priced memory cards) if you wanna play.

      Yeah but it’s cheaper than buying multiple Vita units.  That being said if you have multiple accounts across the world PSNs still it’s expensive.

  • lucky josh there will probably be no events for the vita near me well that is what I get for living in Kansas
