    Sony has backtracked on its previous assertion that its upcoming portable, PSVita, will support multiple PSN accounts. Rage will surely ensue. What do you think, strong citizens of GBAtempia?

    Sony does not know what the hell they want to do.

    I don't give much of a fuck tbh

    I wasn't going to buy an extra mem card just for another account anyway and I don't plan on sharing

    Can't say I care much, only have the one account anyway - and i'm not one for sharing expensive technology with others.

    But I can see Sony's route with the Vita already:

    PS Vita will now only have only one analogue stick.

    Second revision of Vita will feature resistive touchscreen (to save costs, everyone rages) and loses rear touchpad (no one notices...)

    As a 'test' the third version of the Vita will lack memory card slot, game card slot and be limited to 16GB internal storage - when it fails Sony blame piracy.

    Fourth version will be the same as second version, but prevents hacks by removing all 3G and wifi capabilities.

    Final "cheap" version is just a plastic shell.

    You heard it here first folks.

    not surprising really. sony did the same thing with the ps3 (will support full bc, will not have multiple skus, rumble is last gen, other os). personally, I wouldn't buy a ps vita 'cause u never know what sony is just going to remove or take from u after u buy it.

    Sony is more indecisive on how they want to do with the Vita than myself deciding on a gift for Christmas.

    Actually guys this sounds like the earlier confirmation was just a misunderstanding.

    Again, I don't think this really matters, but it would be nice if they could just be consistent.

    The flaming continues.

    WHO TF NEEDS MORE THEN ONE PSN ACCOUNT ON A HANDHELD?
    Small children who share Vitas won't care and no one else will even be sharing.
    So again what is the point of complaining?

    VITA IS DOOMED.


    Had to say it. Anyways, I can see why some people will rage. It sounds nice to be able to "pool" the games of multiple accounts on one PSVita. At least, that's how I think it should be, but how many corrections did Sony make about this already? This retraction is twice now, no?

    I really doubt that a lot of the people complaining will even buy a Vita. I doubt even more that if they did, they would need to access multiple PSN accounts on it.

    I just don't see the issue. I've always been about personal ownership of my electronics. My brother had an Xbox for years and I just bought my own. We both had our own Gameboy Colors and GBAs as well. Only things we actually shared were a PSX and a Gamecube. I bought my own Wii (well, got it as a birthday gift), PS2, Xbox 360, PSP, and DS. Last thing I want is my precious electronic children to be at the mercy of someone else's care.

    Will we be able to change which PSN account is linked to the PS Vita, though?
    Like, in case someone decides to buy one second-hand or something.

    You should be able to reset the device to factory settings and put in a new account.

    I don't think sharing is the main issue. one of the things a lot of people like about the ps3 is the ability to make a Japanese account and download demos of Japanese games. this essentially snubs that ability.
