    Is it possible to share games between two consoles?
    This is what im doing:
    1. Log in to my account in both consoles
    2. I download a psp demo with one ps vita
    3. I backup the game with qcma
    4. I connect the other ps vita to my computer
    5. I try to copy the game but i get the following error:
    "You can only copy applications that your account is the owner of"

    If both consoles are with the same account then yes, you can. I have 3 ps vitas (for me and my two sons) and all the games are shared between us. 3 is the maximum number of consoles you can activate like this with one psn account. You can't go online though with more than one at a time.

    Make sure both vita's are activated to be able to play the games and you 'll have no issues, as Rotchie said, you can have 3 systems activated at the time.

    I had a similiar issue on my PS4 where the system wouldn't play some content because it somehow tought it was deactivated.

    On the system you are having trouble go to System settings > PSN? > System Activation > game content > Deactivate system.

    Activate it again on the same menu afterwards and try to transfer your games/demos :tpi:
