Sony Confirms PS Vita PSN Accounts Linked to Memory Cards

Sponsored Links
158w ago - Today Sony's associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie has confirmed that PS Vita PSN accounts are linked to the handheld's memory cards and not the device itself for those wondering.

Essentially this means those who like bringing their gamer profile and downloadable games over to a friends house to show them off will probably like the PlayStation Vita since the PSN accounts are bonded to the memory card they're downloaded to.

To quote from GameInformer.com (linked above): "Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita," Sony associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie told [Register or Login to view links].

"So if you wanted to change different PSN users but use the same memory card, you would need to go factory reset."

So accessing your PSN account and games is as easy as swapping out the memory card they're installed on. Sounds simple enough. If you have too much media for one of Sony's spendy storage devices, you can have your PSN account linked to multiple memory cards.

One question I have is how often do you think you'll be swapping out memory cards on your Vita? When would you ever be toting around your memory card without your Vita?

Finally, Sony has confirmed to [Register or Login to view links] that only one user account can be used on a PlayStation Vita for those wondering.

Not sure if I am a big fan of this. That means that when they come out my son and I will has to share the same psn account. That sucks.

..? Okay, so I was going to buy a Vita, but why do that when I can just buy a small memory card and use my friend's? I can get all my trophies and saves from their console. Seems a little weird.
