Unlike the PS3, it seems that the PS Vita will only allow one PSN account per system. If you want to create multiple accounts to access different store regions, you’re out of luck. Well, unless you do a restore to factory settings, which wipes out your entire system configuration each time. Talk about a hassle.
This is according to a user that attended a local PS Vita event held in Osaka, Japan. Printed on the FAQ section of a handout was the following:
Only 1 account. If you want to to use a different account, you need to format the system to factory settings.
The PSP had the same restriction, in that it did not allow users to create multiple accounts on a single unit. Still, we’re surprised to see Sony taking this backwards approach with the Vita.
