/RANT AHEAD

Wifey ordered a PS Vita with the intention of us sharing it but I've been slowly finding out things that are likely to make us send it back when it arrives tomorrow.

There was lots of chatter about it being linked to one PSN account but then there were reports that it would work with multiple memory cards (SOURCE).
I've since found out this isn't true so her or I will be limited to having one set of savegames per game (if the savegame resides on the main game cartridge).

I've also read that games only have one save slot (Is this true?), so it isn't just a case of using my PSN account and us choosing different slots on each game for our own progress. EDIT: I'm being told that Vita games do have multiple save states per game so I may have been off base with that one!

On top of this, online games are subject to a "Network pass" and I wonder how long it will be until sony fix the ability this method to earn trophies on used games.

What a clusterfuck of a gaming system. Why on earth would a company limit a portable gaming system to one fucking person?

We've spent just over 300 (~ $478) on this Sony. It may all be going back.

/rant over.

that's incredible!   i thought that you just couldn't go online and play online MP parts of the game if bought used.     wow.... i was thinking of getting one of these around black friday...so i'm hoping by then, all the bugs are fixed out.

PocketGamer have posted that workaround for the Trophies but I can just see Sony "fixing" it in a future firmware update.

The future of gaming is very bleak if this is what we're headed for.
