Well, I expect that to happen.Can probably go online as a guest and browse, but if you wanna buy anything, "better buy our memory card first!"
This could actually happen.
Can't be though, you can factory reset with no card inside.Wait, so it means that factory reset also format memory card?
Wait, so if the profile is tied to a memory card, if you wanted to move up to a larger size memory card all you have to do is copy everything over? There's not going to be some dumb profile transfer hoops we'd have to go through in terms of deactivation/reactivation right? Right??
Sony has utilized this strategy in like forever, they've even gone on account saying they employ a "razor -blades" strategy.Give away the razor, make profit off of the blades is the strategy of shaving accessory companies. It's not a bad strategy but I really don't this is that common of a scenario besides hardcore gamers who want to play in multiple regions, so I'm on the side that this sort of fixes the issue...I just am lazy so I will probably end up buying two Vitas eventually.
You don't seem to be able to earn trophies on your primary account with imported games though?
Where was this confirmed?Sony is not taking a bath or anything. They will brake even or make a little profit from the VITA.
According to the Wired article, you CAN change the account on the memory card but you need to reset to factory setting first. Does that mean we can keep files from different accounts on 1 card, and then switch account manually ? But if you have 1 account per card, you obviously don't need to deal with switching and factory defaults.
