Can the preinstalled stuff on vita be deleted?

7 replies 631 views Edited Feb 27, 2012

My daughter erased two icons from my home screen. One was a game so I redownloaded it from the psn store. They wont charge me for it again right?! The second thing that was deleted Im not sure. You cannot delete the preinstalled items can you? I think she may have just moved little deviants to another home screen page, thus creating an empty space. Can anyone give me a complete list of the installed software so I can make sure???

1. No, unless you actually bought it twice. Sometimes if you buy a bundle, one of the items won't be registered as bought so the product page will say you need to buy it. If you went to your download list though, you're free from that.

2. Just check your other pages. Little Deviants isn't pre-installed, so it CAN be deleted.

3. You can't delete pre-installed items.

4. Here's a list of the pre-installed applications. http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/psvita/index.html

True for some apps, but it would be nice to hide some of them.

Uninstalling them wouldn't really do much to benefit us anyway.

However, being able to hide apps we wouldn't use would be great. Like being able to hide maps and welcome park would be nice. I'll keep welcome park for awhile, but when I'm done with trophies I'll be sick of it and probably rarely (if ever) use it again.

I guess. Some of the apps I rarely use but it's no big deal having them there.

Well I wonder did I buy it twice. The only games I have purchased in psn store are escape plan and stardust. I simply went to the same page I originally purchased it from and clicked the download button. I did notice that there is a red icon of the blue psn shopping bag next to stardust. The same icon appears next to escape plan another game I purchased. I check my debit card and I dont see that I was charged again. The button should change to re-download if youve already purchased a game.

If it said "download" then you didn't rebuy it.

Since it would have displayed the price of the item instead of "download" if you hadn't purchased it. It also wouldn't have the red shopping bag.
