    Hi i wonder if theres any reason why should i have psn on my new vita. We can't no longer firmware spoof and activate on lower firmware. Do i need psn to use QCMA or something important?

    1) Play legit bought PSN games.
    2) Use adrenaline.
    3) Use QCMA

    I would say those 3 pretty big reasons to have a PSN acoount linked/activated.

    I forgot
    You have to have a PSN account linked to use QCMA, yes.

    And you can still activate lower firmware Vita's as long as you have a PS3.

    And no, you can't use the PS Store.

    You can't use the store with your PS Vita itself but you can buy and download the games with a PS3 and them transfer them to the vita using the famous "QCMA + PS3 trick"

    You connect the vita to QCMA, disconect the vita from the PC and then connect it to the PS3, this bypasses the update nag on the PS3 and allows you to transfer games from the PS3 to Vita and viceversa.

    @filrus Please note that almost all latest games now requires 3.60+.

    Also you will need to be signed in and on the latest firmware to use remote play (PS4)

    Games requiring 3.61 are less than %1 of the Vita's library...
