Next Vita Update Will Lock Memory Cards To Single User
Sony is clearly taking a page from Electronic Arts in their user outreach efforts, because it’s just been confirmed that the next Vita update will edge toward turning your Vita into an untransferable brick. NeoGaf has posted on the changes firmware update 1.80 will bring, making it impossible to use a single memory card on more than one account. After installing the update, if you try switching accounts on your device, you’ll receive this charming message:
he memory card inserted in your system is linked with the following Sony Entertainment Network account.
To use the memory card with your PS Vita system you must format the memory card.
If you format the memory card, all data on the memory card will be deleted.
Wonderful. It goes without saying that you should back everything up before you update your device. And consider going PC, since it’s much harder to be ripped off like this.
