Vita Can Access Multiple PSN Accounts Via Memory Cards
It's always a good idea to have all the facts before issuing an important report.
Although several sources reported that Sony would allow only one PlayStation Network account per Vita unit, the official word refutes the information. Well, to some extent; an explanation was obviously necessary, and we have it now.
Sony told Wired.com that the new portable will not be limited to one PSN account per device, provided you have multiple memory cards. Sony associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie said the accounts will actually be tied to the Vita's proprietary memory cards and not the hardware:
"Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita. So if you wanted to change different PSN users but use the same memory card, you would need to go factory reset."
You can swap accounts by swapping cards; if you have more than one memory card, you can register a different PSN account on each. "You can also use them both on the same PSN account as well," she added. Okay, so that should be the truth of the matter...what do you think?
