I couldn't use the group messaging app on my Vita today. It constantly wanted me to log into the PSN over and over again making the app unusable.
As it turns out, Sony updated their Terms of Service which had to be accepted on their website. Users on the Vita weren't informed of the new TOS though so people had to find out how to fix it on their own. It really is a big fuck up from Sony.

Here are some ways to fix it:

Yeah, I ran into this last night. It is weird because usually it will prompt you to agree to the new TOS.

Had that problem a few hours ago when I wanted to play Pinball Arcade on PS3. Fixed by signing in from the XMB (with no game running). Can't you just do the same on the Vita (signing in from the settings menu)?

Simply going to Settings > PSN > Sign In on my Vita brought up the TOS. Thanks for the idea.

Haha wow thanks for linking the EU site. I was trying forever to sign the TOS through the North American site, but it kept giving me bad proxy errors when I tried to sign in (I'm from Canada).

The EU site, rather hilariously, worked just fine for me... I suppose all's well that ends well.

It doesn't seem to surface that info very well (at least from the point of view of an app).

try the web store then since you are directly interacting with PSN at that point.

I had to use the EU link in the OP, that fixed the webstore and vita.

It just redirected me to a server maintenance screen. Hopefully they'll fix this soon.

I kept getting logged out of the webstore the other day which lead to me getting charged for Dragon's Dogma even though I have PS+. I suspected the new TOS was the culprit after I heard about it and this thread has confirmed it. How totally dumb of Sony to not allow users to agree to it on the webstore (it never popped up for me and there was no mention of it) or Vita (without digging through menus).

I was having this problem with my Vita this morning and out of pure luck I thought about trying to log in to the website, which I never do, to see if anything fishy was going on with my account. Then I saw the new ToS and accepted and it seemed to fix everything.

To be honest something as small and easy as a new ToS breaking everything this far into the game doesn't fill me with confidence that network/OS stuff will be vastly improved with PS4.

Ever since I accepted the new TOS, I've had a hard time logging in, and when I do get logged in....the PS Store runs super slow.

Frustrating.

Couple issues I've had since:

-friend list not loading or sluggish
-takes multiple tries to log in to PSN
-PSN store will fire up, but won't display anything at all (I want to spend monies Sony, but you no let me)

I was experiencing this last night at work. Thinking they blocked something preventing the messaging app to work. But came home and got the same. Just logged into my JP account instead with no problems. Glad to see I wasn't the only one. Sony has GOT to do a better job with things like this.

Signing in to the PSN store on the Vita will force the TOS popup too.

While I agree that this shouldn't have happened, I can't agree that this was a major fuck up. Now the firmware on PS3 that bricked systems, that was a major fuck up.
