Sony's Japanese launch of the Vita seemed successful enough, and then the social media complaints started rolling in.
Sony is trying their best to push propriety memory cards, and the ability to use multiple accounts is one way to force the issue.
Have a significant other? Brother? Sister? Parent? Well, they'll each need their own Vita units if they want an individual account.
With the launch of the Vita and it's ludicrously overpriced memory cards, the savings will be passed along on the digital games themselves.
With the back-and-forth between smart phone/portable console gaming, price disparages, and people taking sides, Sony decides portable systems are too cheap already.
The Vita has an official launch date outside of Japan: February 22nd.
Vita. Yep, it's official. NGP is no longer, but Vita is, and the best part? It's only $249 for the Wi-Fi only model or $300 for a 3G + Wi-Fi model, 3G provided by AT&T.
