    Hey all,

    So I just bought a used Vita and there are games that I would love to play that the previous owner had... however I cannot access them because I do not have his account. The game Monster Hunter is on his memory card, but in order for me to play it, I have to have his account (because the game is registered under his account).

    So is there any way I can access it without purchasing it? Like can i have him link his account on my PS3 and then download it from there? Or am I SOL?

    Let me know if there are ways to bypass this.

    Thanks for the help

    No. If you want to play the game, buy it.

    What else can you do with a handheld console that has yet to be hacked? Use it for it's Facebook functions?

    Precisely this. Are you that desperate for free games that you want to take what the original owner bought?
    Either way, if you ever bought a game, or DLC, or paid for anything on PSN, then you'd either have to use his account, or you would have to make your own, then lose the games you were trying to get. Pointless.

    I can't believe there is a 2nd hand Vita.

    But you need the actual game card or something to play it, otherwise find a way to use the previous owner's PSN account and your free to do as you wish.

    Oh I see, you were referring specifically to the Vita.
    I understand now.

    No, I was not. Don't be a jerk just because you can, buy games and support the developers. The "no it's not possible" part was about the Vita, the rest is applicable to any console.
