    Hey.
    I've got a Vita Slim on its way, and I'll use that one to download games from the store as well as patching games. Would it be possible to make a data backup from my Vita to my computer, and then transferring that data to my PS TV? There are different firmwares on the devices, with the PS TV being on 3.51 and the Vita Slim on 3.61. Thanks in advance.

    edit: the accounts will ofc be the same on both consoles.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the differing firmwares matter as long as the memory card you are using in your PSTV and Vita is linked to the same account.

    I wouldn't get quite so happy yet :huh:

    I have a Vita on 3.36 with a memory card and a new PSTV on 3.60

    When using the stick on the PSTV it worked perfectly after I'd signed into the PSN, however after putting it back into the Vita on 3.36 it said "You must update the system firmware to use this memory stick" so I assume you'll have to be using something like QMCA to transfer files or the PS3 trick if that still works.

    I'm sure someone with more experience in this field will be along in a moment..

    The PS3 won't work since patches can not be downloaded to it, however it might be possible to make a backup of the game to the PC and transfer it to a lower firmware version console? Thanks for the reply.

    I'm unsure of that as I've only just got back into the Vita scene myself.

    It'd be great if someone could educate us :).

    It requires the card to be formatted on the same firmware number.

    Which method are you referring to? The QCMA transfer, card switch etc.
