    is this possible? it seems like it should work, but when I go ad-hoc, they never see each other. do I need to look into some sort of account switcher to make this work?

    It does not work on the PSTV. It will work if you have two Vitas. I'm curious. Is your PSTV whitelisted?

    it is

    what do you mean it doesn't work on the pstv? the game runs fine

    huh, ok I guess by default it didn't officially work.

    I don't understand why Sony Crippled the PSTV the way they did, blech

    Because they need to make sure that games can actually be played on the PSTV. The PSTV lacks a touchscreen on the front and a touchpad on the back as well as a camera and tilt sensor. Quite a lot of titles use these for gameplay so they decided to only whitelist games that can be played in its entirety on the unit.

    Now, they seem to have abandoned the PSTV device quite some time ago which means that they apparently have not bothered whitelisting newer titles like Secret of Mana - which should not use any of the features not available on the PSTV, i think.

    It's a shitty situation, really. And it's probably one of the major issues that caused the PSTV to fail eventually.
