    So, I'm about to get a second Vita and for reasons, I have to switch account on my first Vita.

    What is the best plug in to switch account? Also will I lose all my local safe files (Ninja Gaiden, Uncharted, etc)? And how about game progressions that are tied to a PSN ID (Killzone Mercenary, Helldivers)?

    Did some research, it seems that Vita Account Manager is best? But how will it handle save files though? Can I continue playing Ninja Gaiden from where I left off with the new account? Or Do I have to start over?

    Okay, I read more comments, it seems that if I switch account, I won't be able to play games that I bought off PSN with the other account? So only NoNpDRM games work with an account switch?

    Use Save Manager to extract save before you switch account, then use it to put the save back afterward, problem solved.

    What about official games I bought with my first account? Can I extract save files of official games? Can I still play them after I switched?

    Just replace the game with a NPS copy, that new acc you gonna use "for reasons" anyway. Extract save from official game, put them to NPS game

    Heh, so save manager works on official games too, good to know. Sucks that I have to redownload all my games though.

    But what about games with online profile and local save like Killzone Mercenary for example? Surely my online profile will no longer work, but what about the local saves? Are they separate?

    So, I've backed up my save files and switched to my brother's account. I'm gonna give this Vita to my brother and I had hoped I didn't have to change anything. Well, turns out every official PSN games I bought with my account, I can no longer open with my brother's account.

    So I need to redownload NoNpDRM version of every single game that doesn't work... oh well, at least the account switch worked.
